Why a Custom Drom Box?
I looked at as many jobsite boxes as I could find. None looked like they would be what I really wanted. Once the truck
budget was blown and I had to go back to work in the real world, than a few extra weeks to get the perfect drom box is no
The drom box was fabricated by Moroney Truck Bodies in Worcester, MA. They finished it up about a week before Christmas
2006 and we scheduled installation for 12/26/2006. The price quoted was $3200 plus Tax on materials, the final bill
was exactly as quoted.
The doors are made from a composite material for light weight. The roof and floor are aluminum diamond plate.
I'll built out shelves on the inside and moved all of my contractor tools into the tow vehicle. The shelves attached
to the vertical rails on the inside of the box. The interior members are 1/8" square tube steel. The floor members are 3/16"
tube steel. The exterior skin is aluminum sheet, and all of the exterior corners pieces are 2" aluminum angle.
The floor is aluminum diamond plate. The latch is a standard trailer double cam latch. The roof is a welded aluminum
tray with structural supports. With all of the tools in place, it doesn't have any spare space.
