We like to think we know what a Welder Body is, but we really don't. A typical Welder Body is a Service Body with Raised Front Compartment(s) with Bottle Brackets, Rings and Vents for the gas bottles. I've seen so many variations of what welders use as a "Welders Body" and they are limitless.
One modification that we find is common is a flat space behind the cab to install a welding machine on one side and maybe a compressor or generator on the other. Some have cranes too. It depends on what kind of welding the user is most involved in. So, when it comes to Welder Bodies, you need to be open to creativity to solve your particular customers problems and provide the value they are seeking.
As photos become available, I will continue to add different styles of Welding Bodies to give you ideas and options of how to solve your customers problems. There is only one right answer and that is what your customer will find provides them value and solves their problems, helping them to avoid building their own body and helping them make money.
Crane Bodies are similar. You can find cranes mounted on all kinds of bodies. The most common is probably the Service Body, usually on the right rear compartment. Cranes come in a wide variety of capacities. The most popular is the 3,000 lb crane. The two questions you want to always ask the customer is, one, how much do you plan on lifting? and two, how far away from the body? A 3,000 lb. crane will lift about 3,000 lbs. right next to the body, but at maximum extension, it will only lift about 500 lbs. Selling the wrong size crane can be a very expensive lesson.
