WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Ox Bodies, a major dump truck equipment manufacturer, is recalling 214 MY 2004-2008 trucks on which toolboxes were installed, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.
The recall's aim is to address a problem in which the toolbox lid may detach while the truck is in motion, posing a threat of property damage, injury or collision.
Ox Bodies will replace the hinges on the affected toolbox lids. Moreover, support chains will be added for additional safety. Ox Bodies is working with Dycom Industries, which purchased the vehicles, to complete the necessary repairs, NHTSA said.
