Dual Cab Cargo Tray Fitting Instructions
Step 1) Unpack tray and remove all accessories ordered.
Step 2) Lift the handle of the cargo tray and pull to fully extend the tray. Remove the four transit bolts that are securing the tray to the pallet.
Step 3) Lift cargo tray off pallet.
Step 5) Place rubber strips supplied between cargo tray sub-frame & tub.(optional if there is a tub liner in place).Some vehicles may need the additional half strip at the tailgate end to angle the handle end up and aid clearing the tailgate
Step 6) With tailgate closed adjust position of cargo tray until it is central side to side at the back & front. There should be a minimum gap of 1cm between the trays handle and the tailgate when the tailgate is closed.
Step 7) Lift handle & carefully slide cargo tray out approximately half way exposing holes for fixing. Select 2 holes (1 on either side of sub frame) close to the cabin end of the tub. A visual check is required to ensure that these holes do not interfere with any wiring etc. Drill holes being careful not to move cargo tray position.
WARNING. Twist drills move rapidly when breaking through sheet steel. Make sure all swarf is removed and paint these holes. Place 2 bolts supplied with washers, nylock nuts and spreader brackets (Left image) loosely assembled in the holes drilled. Tighten these bolts making sure the spreader bracket is at 90 degrees to the tub ribs. It is not necessary to tighten fully (highest torque setting on a cordless driver) Select 2 hole positions towards the middle of the sub frame & repeat the drilling operation. Carefully extend cargo tray fully & repeat the drilling operation for 2 holes towards the tail gate end of the sub frame.
Step 8) Make sure nothing interferes with the movement of the tray. The cargo tray should move freely.
