Holy mackerel!!! Now that is one awesome canopy! I love the drawer top that slides out as bench space, I never get tired of seeing nifty ideas that people come up with to make your stay in the bush just a little more enjoyable. :thumb:

D22 Navara Ute Canopy Setup

I really love the Ute setups with all the camping gear in them and slide out draws etc. But, what I find great about my setup is the versatility it provides. Four bolts and the frame and canvas are off and becomes a flat bed tray to do all the farm work.

G'day, was wondering if "ianslux" was a home or not? if not could you tell me who made it.
I need to have a tray and canopy made for my duel cab pretty quickly, any direction would be great, I'm in melbourne but don't overly care where it comes from as long as it is top quality and design.

Cool thread, gives me a few more ideas for the inside of mine,

Here's mine as it stands, made it so it lifts off , still have to deck it out and put a rack on the top.Want to build a drop down fridge slide and maybe a draw under the tray..
