The Dmax has built a reputation in Australia as a reliable workhouse with a solid drive-train. Featuring one of the variants of the 4J engine series, the 4 cylinder motor provides consistent performance and ample power for most applications. Newer models have gradually caught up to their competitors on the technology front, implementing a host of new and improved driver assist and vehicle safety systems in the new 20/21 model. Any new model Dmax tray needs to be compatible with the rear cross traffic system.
Selecting the appropriate tray size for your Dmax
Either the 1650mm or 1850mm dual cab tray 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 Dmax fairs quite well and can handle a full size canopy if required for a certain application.
How much does a Dmax tray and canopy weigh?
A Dmax 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.
