XA to XH utes.. tray dimensions.

Are the (interior) dimensions of the trays similar/the same in all of these utes?

Does anyone have any figures on the dimensions? how do these compare to HQ to WB holden utes? I would much rather the falcon ute, but if the holden has a bigger tray, it might suit me more.

Cheers,
Derek

I measured my XG for someone once!

Max width is 1550mm (~61"); width b/w the wheel arches 1150mm (~45.5"); tailgate to cab window length 1700mm (~67") max length at floor height 2110mm (~83").

Hope that helps.

For 2 bikes I think you just need to leave the tailgate down.

Thanks for the info, quite helpful :)

would having the gate down affect towing in any way?

Cheers,
Derek

I don't have the ute anymore but from memory the tailgate sat just above the tow ball when it was down, so I suspect that towing with the gate down might not work.

Ute Dimensions

Hey All,

From the brochures:

Ford XC:

Between Arches: 1158mm

Maximum load width (behind wheel arches): 1544mm

Back of cab to top of tailgate: 1703mm

Floor Length 2134mm


Ford XD - XH:

Between Arches: 1140mm

Maximum load width (behind wheel arches): 1530mm

Back of cab to top of tailgate: dunno

Floor Length 2134mm


Holden HJ

Between Arches: 1283mm

Maximum load width (behind wheel arches): 1283mm

Back of cab to top of tailgate: 1913mm

Floor Length 2111mm


So I guess it depends which dimensions are more important!

Thanks for the research :)

Its the length thats important, width isnt really an issue.

potential bikes needing to be fit.
and lengths associated.

honda XR250: 2.140m
honda SL230: 2.055m
honda XR100R: 1.855m
kawasaki KLR250: 2.141m
kawasaki KLX250: 2.135m
yamaha XT250: 2.070m

and other similar bikes around that length

back of cab to top of tailgate.. i assume that would be the space i've got to fit the bike in with the tailgate up.

It doesnt have to fit in 'straight' but it would need to be almost straight to fit 2 bikes in there. (i have a bike trailer, but i cant tow two things at once).

Cheers,
Derek

Derek,

I reckon you really need to get hold of someone's ute and test it out. If you need to tow with bikes in the tray it might be possible with the tailgate removed, the bike tyres are likely to still be within the tray length.

Yeah, all those dimensions are with the tailgate up. You get an extra 400mm or so with it down. As Raptor said, best to actually check one out with the bikes!
