Johnson Refrigerated Truck Bodies, a Great Dane subsidiary, says its new Guardian LT truck body offers real efficiencies. Mounted to an Isuzu EcoMax truck chassis as shown in the photo here, the lightweight Guardian LT package is said to provide 15-mpg operation. It's a 13-ft, 6-in. reach-in style truck body with four compartments, and two adjustable temperature zones.
Other features include fiberglass composite doors with neoprene compression gaskets with multiple air chambers for a thermal efficient seal; automotive-style door latch hardware with a remote keyless-entry option; a new LED exterior and interior lighting package; a bolt-on tubular stainless steel rear bumper that's said to be easy to replace; recessed fuel inlet; and an advanced body tie-down system that promotes security while reducing maintenance.
The low ground-to-inside floor height of the Guardian LT also makes it quicker, safer, and easier for operators to access the cargo area from the ground, says Johnson.
