Initially based off the Ranger platform, the BT50 offered a slightly cheaper, budget-oriented, alternative to the market leading Ford. Now that the new BT50 has been developed in conjunction with Isuzu and the new model Dmax, a whole host of new features and technology have been introduced to a warm reception. When it comes to selecting your BT50 tray size, both new and old models are capable of sporting either our 1650mm or 1850mm tray without issue.
Selecting the appropriate tray size for your BT50
Either the 1650mm or 1850mm can be selected because when referencing the photos below, notice the headboard finishes clear in front of the rear axle. This means a full size canopy is also possible, which opens up the potential for a tradie style setup and a 3rd rear access door. Minimizing rear overhang should always be a consideration that is acted upon if practical, but compared to other models the BT50 fairs quite well and can handle a full size canopy if required for a certain application.
How much does a BT50 Tray and Canopy weigh?
A BT50 tray has a starting weight of 100kg. From there, it depends on what options you add to the tray and canopy. All our quotes come through itemized so it is easy for you to see what each item costs and what weight it adds to the package. This way you can be confident you are striking your perfect balance between functionality and carrying capacity. Even through our alloy trays are nearly half the weight of steel, we always recommend getting a GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) upgrade done where possible. This will ensure you can make the most of the available space and remain road legal. We work in with vehicle dealers and aftermarket accessory suppliers to ensure if you are building a new vehicle, we can all work together to offer you a turn-key package.
