Customization Options

From machinery in the morning to sheetrock as the sun sets, the haul demands versatility all day long. That’s why we designed Freedom to be customizable, easily able to meet our customers’ needs with custom suspension packages, drop decks, coil packages, load securement options, bulkheads, and rear end options.

Versatile Floor Design

The deck on a Freedom flatbed is anything but ordinary, meeting our customers at the intersection of strength, flexibility, and multi-material modernization. Combining aluminum and apitong (a naturally rot and insect resistant wood known for its impressive strength to weight ratio), the floor of Freedom can be augmented with safety grip and nail strip surfaces.

Premium Load Security

Whatever you’re hauling, Freedom can make sure it’s safe and tied down tight. Heavy-duty side rails, pipe spools, stake pockets, and rub rails provide strength and ultimate flexibility. That’s not to mention the number of different load securement options available, including twist locks, rope ties, D rings, pull-up chain ties, and more.
