    I remember seeing one of these up in Shark Bay, at the end of a fairly rough 2 hour 4WD track. I almost couldn't believe my eyes; you are asking for trouble from the get go with the way they are set up. I wonder what all that weighs empty, let alone loaded. I bet it is over the maximum rear axle weight.

    Triton's and Navara's seem to be the most commonly bent vehicles, but I have seen everything from 70 series cruisers to rangers and beyond.

    Since moving to the city, bent tradie Utes are a common sight, and no wonder with the loads and tow setups.

    All Utes improperly loaded will generally suffer eventually. The old tritons faired worst because the rear axle is in an average at best spot. The new triton(my own model) has a strengthened chassis around that area, it’ll still bend if you push it though.

    Pack cleverly and lightly and you’ll likely avoid all these problems.

    The wreckers across from my work gets bent Utes daily. Rangers and hiluxes are the most common (they are the most bought Utes as well).

    Makes me wonder if that is a deliberate design feature, like a fusible link to stop overloading . . .

    I sort of wonder why they bother fitting snorkels to them , or are they just a non connected bolt on to make it look better :D
