Cargo Bed Covers

HMMWV, Type I and JLTV

The Type I Cargo Bed Covers (CBC) produced by General Dynamics Mission Systems are lightweight, rigid structures that provide environmental protection, and are used to store and secure mission equipment, tools, and valuable items and supplies.

  • Lightweight, rigid structures that provide environmental protection
  • Ideal for storing and securing mission equipment, tools and valuable items and supplies
  • Lighter and more secure than soft-top systems
  • Customizable to accommodate installation of inserts for mounting user equipment

The CBCs are 20 pounds (9 kg) lighter than soft-top systems. When replacing a soft-top canvas and bow structure, the CBCs enhance the system by providing environmental protection and greater security for cargo. In addition, the composite structure can be modified to accommodate installation of inserts for mounting user equipment.

The Type I cargo covers are intended for use on the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle and Joint Lightweight Tactical Vehicle.
