dodge 4500 truck bed/ box question

we are looking at getting a 2015 dodge 4500 but have been told we can only order it as a cab and chassis . When I am not using the truck to tow the camper i use it as a regular truck, so my question is where can i look to get a regular looking truck bed/box for that truck. (it is 60" from cab to center axle) stretch bed, 9' bed, etc.
any info would be great.
thank you in advance

went to the website and did not see what I was looking for. They offer some good stuff, but not along the lines of what I have in mind. basically when i am not towing the camper I want it to look just like a regular truck, not a flat bed or a work truck but a regular looking pick up box.
thank you for the link, if i am unable to get what I have in mind may just go with that.

Sorry did not look at the date on the news article (2008) looks like they don't make the pickup body anymore.

Not sure where you can find it, but in Florida - I see a truck that has a customized bed because the bedrails are about 2/3 of the height of normal bed rails. It gives you plenty of clearance, but still a truck bed. Might be worth considering.

But, alas- this doesn't help your original question because I have no idea where to get this done.

Having just retired from selling truck equipment, Cadet Truck Bodies make a very nice looking bed called the Aztec. Has tool boxes on top and on sides. I have sold several and all my customers were very pleased. Ck them out. Hope this helps you.

Tackle man, better to look at the F-450 for a truck box.
