Having the right piece of equipment on the back of your truck is key to any job, large or small. Many factors are important in order to establish the capability between a body and a truck. Gross vehicle weight rating, payload, gross axle weight rating, wheelbase, fuel and DEF tank location are just a few to consider. Most importantly understand how the cab to axle (or trunnion) and wheelbase measurement comes into play. See descriptions below:
- * Cab-to-axle (CA) dimension. The distance from the back of the cab to the centerline of the rear axle, this dimension helps determine the length of body that can be mounted on the chassis. A similar concept for tandem-axle trucks is the CT dimension, measured from the rear of the cab to the centerline of the tandem.
- * Wheelbase. The distance between the front axle and the rear axle (or the centerline of tandem axles) affects body installation, truck performance, and whether a particular axle is overloaded.
