Choosing a ute tray comes down to your personal requirements and the purpose of your ute tray. For example, if you are a tradesman and need your ute tray for work, you might choose different options than someone who needs a ute tray for their weekend adventures.


The TUFF sales team can help you choose the best type of tray for your circumstances. 

When considering the best material for a ute tray, it’s important to consider your needs and how the ute tray will be used. A steel ute tray is considered to be a more heavy-duty tray compared to an aluminium ute tray.  If you live by the ocean it is best to go with the alloy ute tray option to avoid rust.

When considering whether to choose a steel or aluminium ute tray, it really comes down to the purpose of your tray. All TUFF ute tray options are heavy-duty and fully welded trays.  Aluminium is a lighter option whereas steel is lower cost.

The weight of a ute tray is dependent upon the material your tray is made from. Steel ute trays weigh from 400kg, steel fleet ute trays weigh from 300kg and aluminium ute trays weigh from 250kg.


The weight of your tray will affect the payload or GVM (gross vehicle mass), that your vehicle can carry – the more your tray weighs the less you can load in your tray. This is because the vehicle is only rated to a certain weight (GVM) which includes the total amount a vehicle can carry altogether.


The GVM needs to include passengers, fuel, the ute tray and any tools or equipment loaded in the ute.

There are many benefits to having a tray on your ute. Ute trays offer more capacity than tubs, they provide storage, versatility, and room for tools and equipment.  Ute trays are suitable for tradesmen, and can also be fitted with toolboxes to provide extra storage and protection for tools. Or if you’re an adventurer, camper or 4×4 enthusiast you can also attach dog boxes to take your furry friends with you safely. 

Yes, TUFF’s ute trays are made in Australia at our factory in Toowoomba, Queensland.  They are also designed by our very own engineers, who work hard to design stylish, yet strong and durable ute trays that are built for Australian conditions.

Australian-made ute trays

TUFF Australia started making steel ute trays in 2017 due to growing customer demand for a high-quality, Australian-made ute tray. With ute trays continuing to grow in popularity, TUFF soon began making alloy ute trays in 2019 for customers who were looking for a tray that was lighter in weight compared to steel, but still strong and durable to meet customer needs and in line with TUFF Australia’s value of building tough, durable products made for Australian conditions.


As customer demand grew, we then started manufacturing dog and fridge boxes as well as ute canopies.


In 2020 Toowoomba Regional Council in Queensland chose TUFF to build specialist truck bodies for nine Iveco Daily 4×4 trucks. The Ivecos were upgraded to meet the needs of the council parks and recreation and pest control teams for travel in rough country. The Ivecos all sported TUFF bullbars and trays along with specially designed access ladders, tool cabinets and water tanks. The fit-out included winches, compressors, battery boxes and specially designed tow points. From this early move into trucks, TUFF has made several truck bodies up to 8 metres in length. TUFF has also supplied ute trays and bullbars to a range of local councils, Avis and Hertz for their hire fleets and the Australian Federal Police. TUFF has in-house powder coating and wet spray facilities through TUFF Coatings, so clients can choose from a range of finishes. TUFF ute trays are recognised for their durability and quality of finish and are sold throughout Australia at TUFF stores and dealers.


If you are looking for the highest quality steel or aluminium ute trays in Australia, then you need to get a TUFF ute tray for your vehicle. Our range of ute trays are made from top-quality materials using precise specifications in our purpose-built manufacturing facility, making them the best choice for both private and commercial drivers who want to outfit their ute with a ute tray that is not going to let them down.
