New Canopy to old(er) truck

Postby Auntyjack on Wed, 13 Oct 2021 2:23 +0000

Hello Folks.

Been a long time since I was haunting the threads soaking in all the great knowhow you guys have.

I ended up buying a 2012 SR5, and have been very happy with it. But times change as do the uses we want to put our cars through. So now I'm looking for a hardtop canopy, preferably with central locking and an internal light.

I've been to see our local ARB gents, who are checking to see if they can source. And I've run through a bunch of different forums and canopy supply websites, but everything I can find either refers to older cars already with canopies, or supplying canopies to newer (2015+ hilux).

Hoping one of you kind and knowledgeable souls may be able to point me in the right direction.

Cheers

Jason

Measure your tub, length & width. Then you'll have a starting point, if the canopy you look at is "pretty close" and will sit on the tub while stationery, then you can "make it fit". Central locking and interior lights are easy to sort out later. How "Handy" are you? Got a "Handy" mate? patient persistence with a little bit of persistent patience and you'll get there. :) :) :)
