Vehicle Upfitting: The Step-by-Step Process

Ever wonder about the process an upfitted vehicle goes through before it becomes a finished product? Work Truck takes readers on a journey through the upfitting process with the help of Auto Truck Group, an upfitter that specializes in the design, manufacture, and installation of work truck equipment.

This article takes you through the upfit process of a Ram 4500 spec’d for a light maintenance company, which took place at Auto Truck Group’s facility in Bartlett, Ill.

The upfit consists of six main components: painting the chassis, mounting the service body, installing the LED lights, welding the hitch, and installing the cab guard and ladder rack.

The 12 photos illustrate each step, from the paint booth to final inspection where it will be deemed ready for delivery to the end user.
