Dump Body Manufacturer Completes 11 CNG Dump Trucks

J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers, a manufacturer of dump bodies and other equipment, has announced the completion of 11 commercial tri-axle dump bodies that will be fueled by CNG. The owner of the trucks, Michael Forte of MJF Materials located in Lindenwold, New Jersey, purchased the Peterbilt trucks from Hunter Peterbilt and the CNG tanks from d-HYBRID Systems. J&J technicians assisted with the installation of the d-HYBRID fuel systems prior to mounting the J&J aluminum dump bodies onto the trucks. The trucks will be used to haul sand and stone from quarries to asphalt and concrete plants in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Forte has built a CNG station on his property that will support the NGV fleet. “We expect to see more and more of the CNG configured trucks come to our facility for fuel system and dump body installations,” said Mike Riggs, senior vice president of J&J Truck Bodies & Trailers. “To meet that demand, J&J has invested in employee training and capital equipment to support the increasing popularity of the natural gas option.”
