That sounds pretty close to the base price I was quoted- but by the time you put on pre-delivery, stamp duty, bullbar, towbar & tray - in my case it comes to about $42,500
One thing to bear in mind with putting a tray on the LS-U is that all the ute bodied trucks have a shorter wheel-base - 3050mm vs 3200mm. After having a tray on my old rodeo with the wheels hard up against the back of the cab, I was looking to get something with the axle in a better spot to take the load of my slide-on camper. With a bit over half a ton of camper sitting behind the axle the pitching on bumpy roads got a bit irritating. I am hoping that having the load more over the axle will reduce that - will get a chance to test the theory in a couple of weeks.
So this weekend the mods start already - got to put some air bags on the back, lower the headboard 25mm (it fouls my camper
), put in the Redarc and wiring for the camper, fit UHF, rip out the back seat and replace with a shelf and wiring for the fridge.
