I mentioned this to my contact inside Ford when my work scored an AU3 trayback. This guy had a large hand in making the AU ute a reality, he had this to say;
"I agree with the jack and tool storage and did design a vacuum formed "carry" box for them but the money had run out. "
You win some, you lose some.
Has also told me that the bean counters were insisting they use a carryover tailgate whcih dates back to XD. The clever plastic tray insert saved the team enough money to have a new tailgate pressed. The taillights are borrowed from the US F-series to save money also. Considering it was the only AU to outsell the rival Commodore product the ute team gets a lot more respect within Ford these days.
