The Extended Wheelbase Vehicle Conversions is designed for the Customer who needs a full size tray on a Dual Cab ute. The options for extension are 650mm, 750mm, 850mm and 950mm. The most common extension is the 650mm. This extension will comfortable get an 1800mm long tray fitted (all trays are 2000mm wide). Depending on the customer needs, this can accommodate a 2000mm long tray, but can cause an issue with towing, overhang etc.
By extending the wheelbase of the vehicle, the rear axle (diff) is moved back and positioned more centrally to the tray, therefore allowing a much safer and better handling vehicle when the tray is loaded. The added bonus for an extended chassis model is the wheel arch toolbox’s that are fabricated into the original wheel arch of the vehicle. These are very popular for mounting a compressor or storing recovery gear.
