Reading’s SL service bodies feature the premium materials and quality construction Reading is famous for at an exceptional value. The SL is available in 98″ single rear wheel, 108″ and 132″ dual rear wheel configurations. Both are available in standard and low-profile designs. You can get even more storage space with the Reading Spacemaker® option.


Every SL service truck body moves through Reading’s exclusive E-coat primer and powder coat finish process for outstanding rust and corrosion resistance. In addition, the SL service body offers numerous standard features and options, including Dual-Pro® door seals, an Aluma-Fill fuel cup, stainless steel rotary locks, a slam-action tailgate and much more.

Made in America and backed by Reading’s 6-year warranty, the SL service body offers unbeatable value.




Attractive appearance with no exposed fasteners; rust resistant. Features a double-bitted, high-quality locking cylinder; adjustable striker pins; and an O-ring seal to prevent water intrusion.

Large, automotive quality bubble-type seal and mechanical seal provide a dual line of defense against weather. Patented design increases clear door openings in every compartment of the body.

Unlike the competition, Reading’s SL Bodies utilize Block Hinges for door panel attachment. In the real world this means fixing a damaged door does NOT require cutting the welds and re-welding the piano style hinges then repainting. The Reading SL hinges can be replaced in the field by your staff with a socket wrench.

No place for corrosive materials to collect and cause damage.

Industry standard lighting for easy service and replacement.

14″ Slam-Action Pick-Up Style With Stainless Knee Braces ensures a secure load space when closed and flush gate-to-bed surface when open.

All shelves and dividers are removable and adjustable.

Fuel Receptacle protects the body and finish from accidental nicks and scratches.
