Big Cage for a Big Ute
Our custom cage in this example was designed to fit the all-new 2022 Hilux SR5. The client wanted to maximize the internal cage size, so we fabricated loadbearing rails to be installed above the tub to evenly distribute the weight. From here, the cage could be constructed as a complete unit, making it easy to remove when required. This cage is configured with a single lift-up door at the rear, so you are able to load large items when not transporting dogs. Since both the rear door and tailgate are lockable, security is never an issue.
Although this custom cage was designed specifically for the 2022 Hilus, the same principles can be applied to almost any tub-style tray. We can configure the cage like this one or with a top to bottom swing-out door or internal divider and double doors. Additional options that would still work with this ute cage include side access doors and a rope rail around the top for additional storage.
