does anyone have a tape measure handy and can tell me the length inside the tray tub with the tailgate closed , and the width between the wheel arches on Hilux , Triton and Ranger utes , dual cab and spacecab versions ?

i tried phoning toyota to get the measurements and they "dont have that information".

the nearest Ford Ranger to go measure is 1.5 hours drive each way

can anyone help please ?

i need to make a skid mount box for a customer and i want to check if it will also fit into other utes

thanks peepil

VroomVroom - The vehicle specs are all online. Here's the Hilux dual cab specs. The tub dimensions are under "weights and capacities".
The dual cab Hilux tub is 1520mm long and 1515mm wide and 450mm high.

AFAIK, all ute tubs are a minimum of 1200mm between wheel arches to allow a standard pallet to fit in the tub.

However, it's entirely possible some cheapskate designer has now decided that their current model, fancy "Mums shopping trolley" ute, no longer needs to be sized to carry pallets! [;-)

thanks Ron but the dimensions from the Toyota website dont include the space between the wheel arches

can you guess what i said to the toyota technical rep who told me " we dont have that information - who needs that ? "

if they dont care about supplying the info then i dont care if their wallpaper does peel off after the phone call ;)

Yeah, that's pretty poor, isn't it. For all they know, a sale could hinge on your questions.

I've picked up from several forums that the Hilux is 1100mm between wheel arches - and several Hilux owners complaining, that they can no longer fit a pallet in the tub!!

Who, in their right (or even left) mind would stick a pallet into a ute tub, anyway?
If you are gonna carry real loads, you need a drop-side tray such as made by Michell of Tamworth. Anything else is just a PRETEND utility vehicle!

tubbed utes are manufactured because some people want them

maybe tubbed suits 90 % of what they do but they want to carry pallets once in a blue moon ?

i suspect the shrinking tubs is due to the widening of tyres these days

Tub utes are regularly used by the likes of builders to carry a pallet.
The tubs have a major advantage in having a lower loading height, thus making for easier hand loading - and they're also more stable when loaded, with a lower C of G.

Having said that, I personally now prefer traytops, because you have a bigger area to drop stuff on - such as 1200mm sheets of gyprock or particle board - and right there is where the tubs become a right PIA.
You can't sit any sheet of 1200mm material flat on the deck in a tub body.

For many years I used tub or styleside utes because a lot of the stuff I carried was heavy parts, toolboxes, small drums, 20L water bottles, and other miscellaneous contractor junk, that all fitted well into a tub-style body.
Nothing worse than trying to heave or manhandle a heavy component or a drum from the ground onto a traytop. Luckily, we have lots more forklifts, nowadays! [;-)

Our metric pallets are 1165 x 1165, so that effectively means all of the aforementioned utes with tub bodies are non-goers for any standard metric pallet.

I think the VW Amarak is the only one a pallet will fit,
They advertise it that way.
