Here are some photos of a dual cab Hilux as we call them here in Oz that we are building a rear tube body for.

The tube is being made so it will be a air tank as well, the spare will fit under the tray.
Plenty of clearance for articulation - will also be getting a 3 link coil over with Hydraulics in the near future thats why the tray is shorter than the chassis as that will be about 2 ft shorter than where it is now.

The rear will look somrthink like a snipoer from the rear round tailights across the middle.

looks good, but instead of cutting the frame off when you go coils I would push the axle back and keep some of that wheelbase.

why is the tray rail so high?
Here's my version of almost the same thing

The reason why the tray was made that high was for a few reasons.

The fuel tank and spare will be under the tray, with what room is left it will be storage as it will be all boxed in with the rear hinged to give access.

The other being in the photos it has 31 inch tyres, we were allowing for 38's, most trucks i have seen in Oz run trays and I have not seen one yet with good articulation that does not get hung up on it


By the way this is only a bolt on body not a part of the chassis like yours.
