Ford updates pickup box and cab assembly programs

DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford Customer Service Division has refreshed its pickup box and super duty cab assembly programs, growing the box offerings by more than a third and adding part numbers for 2008-2010 models to the cab program.

New additions to the box program include seven 2009-model F-150s and four 2008-2010 super duty pickups, bringing the total number of parts offered to 30.

The box and cab assemblies are the same as those used in new-vehicle production, with equivalent fit, finish and structural integrity. They also include corrosion protection and dent resistance – something that is not consistently delivered with a salvage unit.

“The pickup box and cab assemblies eliminate the need to order and assemble individual components and the prep work often required when a salvage unit is used,” said George Gilbert, collision merchandising manager for FCSD. “The competitive prices and ease of assembly installation combine to help reduce overall repair costs.”

Both programs offer repairers other benefits as well, including a shorter delivery time – usually three to six business days after an order is submitted – and custom packaging, which protects the assemblies from possible damage during transit.
