Advantage Alloy Decks boosted by upgrade Advantage Alloy decks from Best Bars are now stronger and even more stylish thanks to an upgrade that has improved quality and enhanced load carrying.

The Advantage deck upgrade offers a more refined finish and additional strength without compromising carrying capabilities, along with features unique to the Advantage Brand range.

The team at Best Bars has upgraded the following areas on the Advantage

Alloy deck:

• Drop sides and tailgate now have additional extrusion weight and gusseting built in for reinforcement

• Side hinges are now full height and use a robust, stainless steel design, which combine with new dome head stainless steel  fasteners that eliminate the possibility of corrosion.

• Upgraded side sections to provide more rigidity as well as improve their function.

Advantage Alloy decks are built tough, and thanks to a durable, anodised finish, they won‘t corrode. Their main advantage is enabling the vehicle to haul heavier payloads, as the tray itself is lighter.

In the past, ute owners have preferred traditional steel decks because they are perceived to be stronger. However, Best Bars says most people overlook the fact that the latest alloy decks are designed and built strong enough to withstand the kind of usage they are subjected to around construction and other work sites. And due to their light weight they can carry heavier loads.

The Best Bars Advantage alloy decks come equipped with hinged drop sides to make loading and unloading easier, and exterior lash-down rails to keep loads secure. A tough 63mm alloy headboard tube with cab protector mesh is standard, as are tail light guards, alloy mudguards, mud flaps and rack pegs.

A full range of accessories is also available to complement and customise Advantage alloy ute decks, including ladder racks, side toolboxes, custom internal lashing points, etc.

Best Bars has designed a full range of Advantage alloy decks compromising five size variations to suit most 1-tonne ute models and variants sold in New Zealand, from single cab models, to crew cabs and double cabs. Nissan New Zealand has added them to their line-up of Nissan Approved Accessories.

Advantage Alloy decks can be fitted prior to purchase or on delivery, and owners who are looking for a cost-effective upgrade to their existing ute will find Advantage Alloy decks offer exceptional value for money.
