This build took over 9 nine months in the making, plenty of design changes along the way, and a customer with high standards who knew exactly what he wanted.
With this build, we started off with a pre-owned 2018 79 series dual cab with an existing steel tray, not 100% happy with his current set up, he engaged us for the job for a total rear-end makeover.
The job was broken into 2 parts, upgrade the tray to what you see above, get him back on the road while we designed and manufactured his custom slide on 3-door canopy at a later date.
The tray included some of our popular under-tray accessories like stored water system with 12v pump, ARB air compressor with alloy air tanks, rear trundle draw, central locked toolboxes with internal lighting and a few other bits and pieces.
The canopy was our first 3-door design which we spent a fair bit of re-designing from our earlier canopy design and added a few little changes like raising the top door jamb by 60mm to fit an 85L upright fridge, completely partitioned off dog box area which could be hosed down inside, vented door and even a little 12v fan in there for the pup.
We also included central locking, motion sensor internal lighting, roof platform, and some slide out draws.
With the new canopy design i mentioned earlier, we also introduced our new rear tyre carriers, which are removable, on a 5deg pitch and adjustable to suit any tyre size or stud pattern. At the back we also included some staunch LED flood lights which are controlled from the roof console inside the cab, and a rear view camera.
