I've been lurking in the background following this excellent and distracting forum for some time now. I don't mean to advertise on here but I'd like to get some feedback on a new design of Truck Tray we're working on.
I've attached some images of what the new tray will look like. I can supply many more detailed images if people are interested.
Essentially it will be an aluminum flatbed with drop sides made from all custom extrusions. This is designed to be a far more functional and longer lasting replacment for the pick up box. Its not designed as an all out work horse flat deck that you can hit with an excavator without fear of damage.
Some of the stand out features of the new model are:
Pockets extruded into the corners. These allows the corner posts and headboard to be extremely rigid yet removable. They will also provide an excellent locating point for aftermarket bodies and campers.
A completely flat floor. All rivets are counter sunk and the eight in-deck tie downs are set under the floor making up fitting tool boxes or other bodies easy.
A complete range of accessories including:
In front of axle under floor tool boxes (these will fit 5 x 5 gallon fuel cans each)
Behind axle under floor tool boxes
Removable rear rack
7.5 cu ft Underfloor roll out tool drawer rated to carry 450lbs
3 door canopy
Dimensions for the tray will be 81" x 110". The sides will be 16" high but can be custom ordered higher or lower in 4" increments.
Please, if any one has any input it would be greatly appreciated.
