    How about a scrap yard?

    Maybe a late model wreck that did not damage the Box?

    Maybe if you have a place near you or that you can call that installs truck bodies you can ask them what bodies they use.

    Or maybe call different dealers tell them you're looking for a box truck what kind of boxes do they put on them.

    Look at Facebook marketplace. There are often decent enough van bodies on there for reasonably cheap.

    I recommend FRP body much easier to modify (customize) for future needs.
