The 2018 Ford Transit Uniladder Construction

Uniladder Construction

The foundation of Transit Cutaway and Chassis Cab is a durable uniladder structure. The fully welded platform underlies the cab, with frame rails reaching from the front to the rear bumper mounts. Both the cab area and uniladder frame rails are reinforced with Boron steel for added strength. For increased adaptability, standard frame rail extension adapters allow an upfitted body to accommodate additional cargo through extended length.
