    Default Aluminium Canopies

    Hi

    I want to buy an basic aluminium canopy for a new Ranger, but can't decide. I am looking at alu-cab, aluminium cab and custom leisure tech.

    What do you recommend

    Thanks

    I looked at all the options available and finally decided on the African Outback. My requirements are probably different from others and this one suited me the best for various reasons. Also have a look at the Gerber before you decide.

    Average would probably be around R18000, but also speak to Heinz Modricky, Metallion Trailers, they also build the Alu Cabs.

    Another option is Pro Custom 4x4, check their website, the quality of their products are extremely high.

    Default Aluminium Canopies

    I ordered a canopy for my dc Hilux at Metalian and will collect it on 17Nov.

    Do a search on the forum for Metalian Canopies and have a look at the thread of MTB9 ( Marius). I visited him personally. The quality of workmanship is very good. I trust they will provide the same quality to me and other clients.

    Price is around R5000 less than all other quotes I got.

    Steenbri,

    I do not know the manufacturers in the Randburg area, but have done quiet a bit of research at the Coast.

    Pro Custom 4x4 does not exist anymore. The guys that used to run the business are working for Metalian now.

    I can recommend Metalian to anyone that is interested in an Aluminium Canopy.

    The guys there really go the extra mile to ensure that you are satisfied with the end-result.

    Contact Heinz, also a forum member and he will surely be glad to assist.

    Give me a shout if you want to see one close up

    Fitted one to a bakkie not too long ago and it was a real pleasure to work with something that just fell in to place
