i built this custom vehicle

well i dont do anything by halfs so basically i set about thinking what vehicle i wanted something i could pick family up in, also store tools safely but then have all the work functionality. most boxes ticked except bed height for cement mixer and wacker plate so im buying a small trailer for those things. still need to paint the aluminium side boards to truck colour ran out of paint and waiting for my stainless wheel guards to come back also paint the chassis black. Im currently designing mesh attachable sides to.

    Looks handy. Would it not have been better to have sign written the sides you'll put on the tipper back?

    • Green vinyl is temporary to cover all war wounds and old sign writing on the aluminium signs going to paint sides to match truck then sign up plus considering adding mesh sides.
  • what payload will it carry with the tipper on the back

      That's a good point isn't it if not thought about that. Payload is only a tonne in an l200 and that's not including the extra weight of the tipper body compared to standard. Also the ram, motor and lifting mechanism. I would guess that would take a couple of hundred kilos off.

        • very handy as long as your not carrying tremendous weight. vans are nice but some times you need 5 seats.

          nope my insurance company are really nice they allow for visual mods free as long as i dont touch then engine.

            Have you told them its a tipper though? Because it become a tipper it is then a different type of  vehicle so might be an expection to the rule of as long as you leave the engine alone.

      • it weighs 2.140 ton had it over a bridge recently so around 700kg being a twin cab it will carry originally just under a ton i believe gross vehicle weight plated for is 2.840

        However mine already runs a helper leaf and im looking to add heavy duty suspension plus have the both chassis legs plated all the way down to add reinforcement.

        Have you done anymore to it yet? And do you mean you are going to try and get the plated weight lifted?
