The Triton represents excellent value for money in the current dual cab market. Coming in considerably more affordable than other offerings, the Triton is becoming more popular thanks to the increasing the amount of aftermarket accessories and included technology. Mitsubishi’s reliable diesel motor is fuel efficient and offers adequate power in its stock form under normal conditions. However, it is important to note vehicle specific considerations when fitting a Triton tray.
Selecting the appropriate size Triton tray
Due to the shorter wheelbase, the Mitsubishi Triton is one vehicle that we know will benefit greatly from a reduced tray and canopy size. This is because the rear axle is tucked up close behind the cab and as such, distributes the weight of any tray and canopy much further out over the rear of the chassis. Over time this can result in negative effects from the uneven weight distribution, including over stressing and potentially damaging the chassis from a combination of incorrect loading, too much overhang and harsh off-road driving conditions. This is why we insist on fitting a 1650mm tray to Triton models.
How much does a Triton tray and canopy weigh?
A Triton 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.
