open back Pickups we would recommend our Pickup Box which is manufactured
with a slopping roof so that the water runs away from the dogs..
We can produce this as a CAB 1 or a CAB 2 and can be made to slide
between the wheel arches. Depth would be discussed with customer
and then priced accordingly. We would recommend a storm peak is fitted
over the door to prevent the rain from driving straight into the
box. You can also add door covers which fit to the inside of the
doors to protect them even more on really bad days. (Storm Peak and
Door Covers can be seen in our optional extras section)
you have an open back Pickup and only one dog then our CAB 5 Box
manufactured with a slopping roof is you best option. Again you can
add a Storm Peak and Door Cover from our optional extras. This box
can be made up to 24" wide - other measurements would be discussed
before manufacturing and would depend on the size of the dog and
the amount of time it was going to be in there.
we have a drawer unit and CAB 2 dog box. The dog box has again been
slopped to ensure water runs away from the dogs. Storm Peak and door
covers are fitted. The drain plug in the dog box has been fitted
in the front of the box so if the Pickup is parked on a slope it
can be washed out insitu and the water will drain out of the vehicle.
is our CAB 2 Dog Box which has been custom made to the Pickup it
is in, leaving a small amount of space in front for storage. We can
make this unit whatever size you wish depending on space available
and amount and size of dogs. We would discuss these things with you
before manufacturing. Any of our optional extras can be added making
the box individual to you.
only problem when placing a dog box straight on the floor is the
loss of valuable storage space. We have, therefore, developed a system
where the box is mounted on a platform that can be pushed back and
forwards in the vehicle (as shown right). retractable bolts are fitted
each side to secure it in position. The platform can easily be removed
customer wanted to leave some space at the side of his box to store
surf boards so we made a half width box shaped around the wheel arch.
A Top Tray was fitted to give more storage on top.
unit was manufactured for a Vet who wanted a secure drawer to store
his drugs. He also had a dog that travelled with him all day so wanted
a good size box.
units were made after much discussion with the customer. The customer
told us what they wanted to achieve and between us we came up with
We have a Dog Box that is shaped around the wheel arches
so that it fits as tight to the side as possible it is also has a
shaped side to match the profile of the pickup. The dog box was fitted
with a top tray so that extra storage space is available. The drawer
unit is again fitted around the wheel arch to allow it to go up to
the side of the vehicle.
It is fully lockable and has a small lip
fitted around the top to hold anything stored there in place.
is two separate units making it easy to remove when you want to use
the vehicle for other things.
The Drawer Unit has a lip all around
it so that the dog box is held in place.
The Dog box has key locking
doors to that use the same key as the paddle locks on the Drawer
problem with Pickups is the gap between the taildoor and the body
of the vehicle. We have heard of dogs causing serious damage to their
legs after getting a paw down this gap. We have, therefore, produced
our tail door flap which can be fitted to the body of the vehicle,
it then lifts up as the tail door is closed and drops down again
over the gap when the tail door is opened.
Another alternative to the taildoor flap is our full length taildoor
mat which is cut to cover the flat bed of the pickup and out over
the tailgate covering the gap. It can be rolled up and laid behind
the tailgate when closing.
The above are examples of Boxes etc... we have produce that are
fully removable. We also produced a Box System and a Sliding Gate
System that is fully fitted to the Pickup - Full details of these
systems can be seen in Box System or Gate System section.
If you have any ideas that you have not seen above we are always
ready to listen and advise.
