    There was a retiree years ago who had a Ute modded for outback travel,
    the wheels were between the rear of the cabin and the pod from memory
    they were kept in check with with a ladder type frame work that kept them
    safe but also doubled as a ramp to load and unload them. It was one of the better
    ideas Ive seen over the years for access to tyres etc
    04 ST 3lt auto, not enough Mods to keep me happy, but getting there

    Great setups there! I am looking for a set up for my coilcab patrol. What sort of $ am i looking at for a full custom one (preferably alaminium) painted to match the vehicle? roughly..
    Success comes to those stubborn few that choose to ignore the temporary discomfort of setback for the long-term strategy of delivering value.

    Sorry mate, I just fold the stuff so no real idea on price but would assume a few g's for a custom canopy depending on what you wanted and who you go 2.

    Farked if I know @bigguwesty, I havn't used a welder since the year 2000 and it was with a stick and only on steel.

    I can ask one of the welders if you like, I assume from what I have seen they just clamp if need be, tac then weld.
