Hi Brady, most after market trays are pretty generic, basically designed to go on whatever you want to fit them on. So I can't really see it being all that hard to convert a tray that came off a Hilux so that it fits onto a Navara, but it will take a little fab work, welding a few brackets & maybe some cutting & welding to line up the supports with the hard mount points in the chassis with those in the tray. :thumb:

Still, not generally hard, & probably not all that time consuming either, just so long as the tray's width & length are suitable to start with. ;)
