The body is an all aluminum dry van body with curbside entry door. The exterior of the vehicle features an emergency lighting and siren package with LED scene and entry door lighting.

A rear-mounted ladder is installed to access the roof of the vehicle. A custom center console houses vehicle electronics.
Inside, there are two workstations complete with laminate counter tops and spider base task chairs for mobility inside the vehicle. A total of 10 custom aluminum box pan shelves are adjustable for stowing gear. Mesh cargo netting assists with keeping gear safe during transport. We installed aluminum cabinets with LED under cabinet lighting for additional storage. A galley with refrigerator is included in the interior.
