Towing and tray loading. Bent chassis buyimg tips?

Postby xXLyfeXx on Mon May 13, 2019 11:24 am

Hey guys just wondering how common the tritons bend chassis are in the 2011 GLR 4x4.
Looking at buying one with 80,000kms.
I will be setting it up with:
2inch lift,
31-33inch tyres
Bullbar winch,
Back canopy
Up to 300kg load in tray before adding anything
Towing possibly 2t caravan dual axle

Is this triton going to be suitable?

It is pretty is to get a Triton up to GVM
Don't overload them and flog them on gravel/bumpy roads and you will be ok
It's a good idea to weigh your loaded Triton at a weighbridge.

Yes it will eat it up. When you look at the amount of Triton’s out there & the amount of issues, I think you would be unlikely to have a problem. But of course sometimes weird stuff happens.
It is a 4x4 so if you can’t use it as such then why bother. If you are asking because you have seen some stress marks on the chassis then obviously give it a miss.
Life is what happens while you are busy making plans........
