A bit about us.

Located in Sydney, our trays are all designed in-house using the latest CAD software giving you a personalized service with your desired options and at a price you can afford. Our pride in workmanship and quality of product is second to none and care taken at every stage to give you the best quality tray we can offer.

Why are they expensive? Because we spare no expense when it comes to attention to detail, we use the highest quality accessories and the parts and materials we purchase. Every nut, bolt and mechanical fixing we use is stainless steel, every weld is dressed back for a smoother finish. Our paint finishes are showroom quality and we strongly believe our personal interaction with our customers is important & letting them have an input to the tray design, we update our clients throughout the build with emails and photos, this all takes time.

Being on the Northern Beaches of Sydney our overheads and wages are higher than  North Queensland or Western NSW, We’re not in a big tin shed and the cost to keep the doors open are high so unfortunately its reflected in our prices. That being said, due to our coastal location we really give a shit about our paint finish and rust prevention and to provide you with a product that will last the test of time. If your after a cheaply knocked up job, something mass produced or off the shelf, and expect it done next week you’re at the wrong place.

Now, down to business.

Load Restraints

Optional Extras:


The tray size is your choice. Its your car, so its your decision and responsibility on how you load it up. We’ve made trays for dual cabs from 1700L to 2000L and both meet ADR and ROH requirements (rear over hang of 60% of wheelbase). Be smart about weight distribution over your axle when planning build.

As a guide, we think 1850W trays look better on current Ford Rangers and 1800w trays look better on current Toyota Hilux’s. Totally up to you and depends whats more important – looks or usable space.

Lead Times.

As you have already gathered, our trays are made to order. We don’t have them sitting around. To design and manufacture your tray from scratch takes around 5 weeks, depending on work loading then it’s off to sandblasting & painting. The whole coating process takes from 2-4 weeks variably depending on our coaters lead times. Once we have the tray back its time to book in your vehicle. Install generally takes around 3-7 days depending on what you order.


We require 40% deposit on acceptance of the official quote and remainder (cleared funds) due on completion/pick up. We accept cash, EFT and take credit card payments with a 2.5% surcharge. We are currently working towards a finance option.

New Car Purchases.

If you’re considering purchasing a new vehicle from a dealership, let us know. We can work with your preferred dealer Australia wide and have your new tray fitted and taken care of before you pick it up.

Doing it this way means you don’t get stuck with an unwanted tray we take off,  there’s no logistical inconvenience of having to leave us your new car, and why not get the tray and accessories included in the purchase price or finance at the dealership.

We are already known to our local dealers and are their preferred accessory installer so feel free to ask if you have any questions.

Note: All prices above exclude GST.
