A.R.E. Releases Deluxe Commercial Unit Series Truck Cap

MASSILLON, Ohio – A.R.E. introduced their Deluxe Commercial Unit (DCU) Series truck cap for professionals who want to create a customizable solution for their work trucks. Made of fully-welded aluminum frame construction, the truck caps are available in cap heights from 20 – 36 inches and feature STRATTEC lock cylinders in folding T-handles on all doors.

A.R.E. offers more than 200 options to customize the DCU, including a variety of door and window configurations, toolboxes, ladder racks, roof racks, interior fabric liners, side panels and organizational solutions.  All A.R.E. truck caps are custom-built to exact specifications.

In addition, surveyors can pair the DCU cap with the A.R.E. Pickup Vault – a lockable drawer system that provides heavy-duty secure storage in the truck bed. Featuring a no-drill installation, the Pickup Vault comes with two drawers with a standard depth of 5 5/8 inches, a drawer bulb seal and folding compression locks. The surface of the Pickup Vault can support up to 2,000 pounds and includes an adjustable tie-down system to secure additional cargo.

“Security and organization are two of the most important factors in the surveying industry, and there is a big need to protect the precise, expensive equipment used each day at the job site,” said Bryan Baker, director of marketing, A.R.E.  “The separate, lockable compartments of the Pickup Vault combined with our rugged DCU truck cap lets surveyors keep their gear contained so it’s away from possible theft and harsh weather, while allowing for easy access and reduced downtime. In addition to functionality, A.R.E. truck caps are painted to match the truck with a DuPont base coat/clear coat paint, creating a professional rolling billboard to list your business’s name and number.”

A.R.E. offers a three-year warranty on materials and workmanship for the DCU.  The A.R.E Pickup Vault comes with a limited lifetime warranty.  To learn more, visit
