I have a fundamental objection to crawling around on my knees any more than I have to. That said, I know that the farm vets seem to all use a cap very similar to that one.

The phone company in my area uses similar, and also the well heeled alarm company's in the area. They fit into parking garages that vans with ladder racks might not due to height restrictions. My favorite picture in that site is the chick in the "mobile office " picture. Two minutes parked in the sun where I live and she wouldn't be smiling in the photo any longer.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


A friend of mine has something similar on a 2500HD but it is custom made out of aluminum. Very nice looking but a pain to get in and out of, like said above it is a pain on your knee's. It doesnt seem to hold alot either, i had a Dodge Dakota extra cab short bed with a cap/ladder rack and that had more room for tools and the access for the ladders was much easier. If you had the sliding bed it would be much better but for the money you might just better get a trailer.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


It's true cargobody is having some problems. I was thinking about getting one until I talked to a friend who works for the power company in
Missouri. They ordered a service body and after 6 months of waiting they started looking for something else. They found another product at fleetwest.net and told Cargobody they wanted to cancel the order but they said they couldn't canel the order because there was nothing in their order which specifies build time. They then found out that Cargobody had a fire in the plant and that someone went to jail. Sounds like they are having some finacial trouble.

I ordered a unit from them a year ago and gave them $14000.00 and got nothing except excuses from that doush bag Ken Morey. apparently the place burned down and they have no insurance. A real gem of an operation.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


My partner had multiple issues with Cargobody! It sounded to me as if there were issues internally with that company. All the people he contacted that were at all concerned or helpful with the multiple complaints he had about the unit he was delivered, are no longer with the company. There are still issues with the unit after all this time but we've given up. My recommendation is - RUN!

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts




Run for your life ! I sent them $12K and I fear it is lost. The plant in Iowa burned down in March, and no insurance. Owner is still taking orders and down payments. They will never answer their phone, only voice mail. Response was great until they got the down payment and then disappeared. Phone in Iowa is disconnected. Total Scam.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


I drive a Ford F-350 with a steel cap similar to the one shown. The side doors are my primary access method. I carry a boat docking pole in the back to pull items toward the door rather than do the knee crawl. As long as the back is organized it isn't bad to work out of. The place using a pick up and cap beats a van hands down is when you need a/c or heat, it works so much faster with a truck cab rather than a big metal box.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


Looks like some old posts, I was looking around to see if they reared their ugly head again. Itoo lost my $11k from them, last I check the scumbag that owned the place fled to Canada. Anyone with more info?

PS bought a steel Fleetwest, works good, better have a stout truck, as the unit is heavy to start with.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


I used to work at Cargobody. Ken Morey is responsible for all the disruption. Morey would promise order dates, then have his workers change one customers order (body) to another customer order and a new promise date - he had his staff running in circles and Morey would not take calls directly - he instructed staff to lie to customers. Morey repeatedly missed payrolls, and told staff to hold their checks. The staff were dedicated hard working people who cared about the customers, Morey simply over promised and under-delivered in every aspect, customers, suppliers, and employees. In the end, Morey had made a promotional promise to an employee - Morey didn't deliver - and the employee lit a match in frustration with Morey's continued dishonesty and apparent getting away with it. Morey decided not to renew his property insurance and he paid the price. He headed back to Canada, after getting a large grant from the state of Iowa. Iowa should have monitored him closer - all Iowan's got ripped in this deal.

Re: Anyone Have Info On Cargobody Fiberglass Inserts


I recently had a bad dealing with that lowlife when he scammed me out of some cash. It wasn't until later that I googled him and realized what a POS he is. He's got bad deals and people he's ripped off all over the place. If anyone wants to track him down for legal reasons I know how to reach him. I'll be working on a small claim against him soon enough.

After almost 16 years of scammin', looks like he's got a system that works for him.
Maybe someday he can join Bernie Madoff......
