Why Should You Choose Hostetler as Your Installer?

Choose us for the added value that comes from decades of experience. Not only do we work with top-line vendors, but we can do the type of custom work that separates quality from quantity. Recent dump body installations have included our “slop shield” fender/flap combo that we believe will add years to the life of your dump if you’re dealing with Pennsylvania winters.

This pintle/receiver hitch combo is a good example of the kind of flexibility we can build into your installation. And we can easily add a cab protector (and a little extra security) to your bulkhead. Contact our Sales team to find out more.
