LDV recently completed two specialty vehicles for the Arlington Heights Fire Department. Each was built on a 2019 Ford F-550 gasoline XL crew cab, 4×4 chassis with a custom designed aluminum box. There are compartments with slide-out tool trays, box pan shelves for equipment storage. Pull-out steps on both the streetside and curbside of each vehicle were included. The rear bumper is custom fabricated aluminum with Diamondback serrated plank tread surface with a flip-down rear step.

The interior compartments are coated with a Zolatone™ finish and areas that will see more heavy use were coated with Line-X™. LED strip lighting is inside the compartments for night operations. There is a Warn™ M12-S heavyweight winch capable of pulling 12,000 lbs. mounted at the front bumper.

A Zone Defense color backup camera system was installed to ease parking maneuvers. The front passenger area includes a custom center console to house electrical distribution equipment and controls. We also installed the customer-supplied radios with magnetic radio microphones.

The vehicles are finished black and red to match the fleet with simulated gold leaf lettering.
