    I still have a few things to finish off, well a lot really, but this is all DIY and ticks all the boxes I want.

    To do:
    Under tray boxes
    Under tray rear drawer
    Mesh inserts on doors with canvas storm covers
    Roof rack
    Tyre carrier MkII
    Upgrade from the internal beta phase wiring set up.
    Side ladders
    Work lights
    Internal dog box

    Might be some ideas in this for someone.

    Some pictures of my mounting system since they are missing from the original post.

    I made up a bar that supports the front of the tray and bolted it using insertion rubber to the front tray mounts. It's welded to the tray but has a degree of flex in it.

    The rear of the tray is rigidly bolted to the rear crossmember

    The intermediate mounts use some valve springs from a C series inter truck motor

    This setup seems to have worked for 3 years without damaging the chassis with a very rigid tray.

    Front and rear mounts...the intermeadiate supports are sandwiched conveyor belt held in by compression same as some of the cab supports.

    Not sure....I lifted it on and off the truck solo (end at a time) and I'm no gym junkie. The steel tray I had on previously I had no chance at lifting it up like that.

    When I ran the calcs the difference between a 3mm alloy unit and a RHS with light alloy skin was 30-40kg.

    For the most part the RHS is 1.6mm except for the bulkhead uprights and ROP's over the kids which is 5mm.

    The alloy on the doors is 2mm and the rest is 1.6mm. The floor is FormPly but it's not panning out the way I thought and I will trade it for 2.5 or 3mm check plate.

    Truck weighed in at 2650kg for the engineering certificate with a 4BD1T fitted, MXA-5R gearbox, aircon, bull bar, rear seat mods (added 30kg), two batteries, winch, LR sill tank, side steps, 80lt fuel, full tool box in the tray etc

    It's no ultra lightweight, but it can handle a decent load without distorting which is important to me.

    If I get enthused one day I might find my spreadsheet, update it to match the exact build and calc a reasonable estimate. I do know that DIY was about 7-10 grand cheaper!

    Nothin - it's unbreakable Just curious about weight, my alloy Toyota can be lifted off by 2 blokes (without the custom girders).
