Ford "One Tonner"

The other day, I saw a cab-chassis Falcon Ute, Acid Rush colour, with an XR6 front end. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the front mount intercooler from the XR6 Turbo. As far as I know, XR Utes aren't available as cab-chassis, only "style-side box" or whatever Ford calls it. This seems like a custom order to me.. but it'd be a great competitor for Holden's One Tonner...

Nope, all the Falcon utes are available like that. There's a sliver XR6T Trayback in town where I am, and I've seen a green XR8 trayback witha nice wood tray - looked bloody nice.

Re: Ford "One Tonner"

I thought the customer bought the style side XR series ute, and then took the rear off and fitted their own choice of tray... I haven't heard of dealers offering the one tonners on anything above an XLS ute.

I saw an AU XR8 1 Tonner the otherday on my way home from work. It was Narooma Blue. Did they do AU 1 tonners in XR8 flavour?

Re: Ford "One Tonner"

The XR utes dont come out with factory trays, you've gotta get them made yourself once you buy the ute. I think you can however just tell the dealer you dont need the back tray, and they reduce the price a little. Don't quote me on that though.

Re: Ford "One Tonner"

Also, how much can the XR utes tow with the suspension? I belive that they cant haul 1 tonne because of the sports suspension

You can always upgrad the suspension to 1 tonne spec...

Re: Ford "One Tonner"

Meh. I've seen a few around. I was next to a BA XR with a tray yesterday that I got excited about. It was a custom colour but looked bloody tough to say the least.
