  • Y61 GU Patrol Resurrection

    Its not often we work on an older vehicle such as this, but given the owners wish not to let this old girl fade away to a rusty death we were happy to oblige. This build started off with just a simple tray conversion but turned into something much more.

  • 2019 LC79 Full Vehicle Build

    Our business building ute trays has slowly evolved into something much more. Full vehicle builds. With clients wanting a one stop shop, where they can leave it to one company to project manage the whole build has quickly become a common theme here at Shannons Engineering.

  • 3-Door Canopy & Cruiser Tray

    Our business building ute trays has slowly evolved into something much more. Full vehicle builds. With clients wanting a one stop shop, where they can leave it to one company to project manage the whole build has quickly become a common theme here at Shannons Engineering.

  • 2019 FORD RANGER PX3 BUILD

    After reading an earlier post on a PX2 Ranger build we did, our client came to me and said "I want something like that, but better" and dropped the keys to his brand new 2019 XLT in my hand. From that point, I knew it was going to be a fun job.

  • AIRLIE BEACH CRUISER

    Like with a lot of our interstate builds, I had never met the client. We had spoken over the phone and several emails and plan had begun. We had discussed his intentions to travel Australia and was in the process of purchasing a brand new 79 Series Toyota Landcruiser.

  • BUILDING THE ULTIMATE AMAROK

    This is going to be an epic challenge in both design, fabrication and execution by packing as many accessories under a staunch, stumpy tray, sitting atop a roided up modern 4wd, not only will it look good but be very functional underneath as well.

  • 2018 Toyota Landcruiser LC79 Military GXL Dual Cab

    Starting off with a brand new LC79 Dual Cab Landcruiser, delivered to us from an interstate Toyota dealership unregistered. The owner also lives interstate so we mainly communicated over email and phone and he was involved in all the big decision making of the build.

  • 2018 FORD RANGER PX MK2 BUILD

    Straight from the dealership, this new ranger will be built for touring. The owner loves to travel and knows what he wants. He’s just upgraded from a PX1 with a tub and has decided its time to get serious.

About us

We live and breathe camping, touring & 4wding. Our passion is high detail, high end custom ute trays and canopies built to order from a mixture of Australian steel & aluminium.

Our trays and canopies are built by hand to the highest standard possible. We are always thinking ahead and finding ways to improve our products with innovative computer aided design and new technology through products we endorse.

At Shannons Engineering, no two jobs are the same. Our customer base varies, as do their needs. We can offer you a complete package from trays, canopies, touring set-ups, 4wd suspension, power management, bull bars tow bars, wheels tyres and accessories. Just ask us.

Our History

Established in 2004, We ran a successful business doing custom metal fabrication, working in stainless steel, aluminium and steel, we have been the most versatile metal shop working with builders, architects, homeowners, landscapers, tradesman, councils, and even the ADF.

Challenging every job that came through the door has given us a great satisfaction and knowledge using a wide skill set and a vast variety of materials but the time had come to reinvent ourselves & follow our dreams and become a household name in custom ute trays and canopy scene.

Since then, we made the choice to give up the daily grind of general fabrication and follow dreams making high-end custom ute trays. Building ute trays led us to making canopies and now, we have become predominantly full touring vehicle builders of the all popular, 79 Series Toyota Landcruiser.
