Advantages of a 4×4 canopy

Besides providing a cavernous weatherproof space where you can haul large items, a canopy also presents dual cab ute owners with plenty of options when it comes to tailoring their vehicles to suit their needs – think ute liners, drawer systems, shelving, tie-down points, fridge slides and more!

  • What is a 4x4 canopy?

    A 4×4 canopy, also known as a truck or ute canopy, is a versatile storage solution designed specifically for 4×4 vehicles. This removable structure fits over the bed of your 4×4, providing weatherproof storage space and protection for your gear, tools and equipment. 4×4 canopies come in various materials, sizes and designs, so you can find the perfect fit for your 4×4 model.

  • Why do I need a 4x4 canopy for my rig?

    From off-roading adventures to everyday essentials, there are plenty of reasons to invest in a 4×4 canopy from ARB.

    • Increased Storage Space — With a canopy, you can utilise the entire bed of your vehicle, allowing you to carry more gear and equipment on your adventures.
    • Protection for Your Gear — 4×4 canopies provide a secure and weatherproof storage space, protecting your valuable gear from theft, harsh weather conditions, and dust. This means you can confidently store your tools, camping equipment, and belongings without worrying about damage.
    • Improved Organisation — Keeping your 4×4 bed organised can be challenging, especially when you have various items to transport. A canopy offers designated storage compartments, drawers, and racks, making it easier to organise and access your gear, saving you time and frustration on the road.
    • Versatility — Canopies can be customised to suit a range of purposes and activities. Whether you’re a tradesperson needing storage for tools or an outdoor enthusiast looking for camping gear storage, there’s a canopy configuration to meet your needs.

  • Are ARB canopies waterproof?

    Most high-quality canopies, including ARB canopies, are designed to be water-resistant. They feature weather seals, reinforced corners, and water-resistant hinges to keep your gear dry during rain or other wet conditions.

    However, it’s important to note that no canopy is completely waterproof. It’s always a good idea to take precautions and use additional protective measures, such as waterproof storage containers, for particularly sensitive items.

  • Can I sleep in a 4x4 canopy?

    While some canopies may offer enough space to sleep in, it’s important to consider ventilation, comfort and safety before hitting the snooze button. Canopies with proper ventilation systems, such as ARB’s optional roof vents, are generally more suitable for sleeping. It’s essential to ensure proper insulation and bedding to make sleeping arrangements comfortable – especially in scorching hot summers or freezing winters.

    Always check the manufacturer’s guidelines and consider modifying your canopy to create a safe and comfortable sleeping space.

  • How can I maintain and clean my 4x4 canopy?

    Maintaining and cleaning your 4×4 canopy is essential to ensure it lasts for the long haul. Here are some general maintenance tips for your ARB canopy.

    • Regularly inspect the canopy for any signs of damage, such as cracks or leaks.
    • Clean the canopy using mild soap, water, and a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or materials that may scratch the surface.
    • Lubricate hinges, locks and moving parts as recommended by the ARB team to prevent rust and ensure smooth operation.
    • Store the canopy in a dry and covered area when not in use to protect it from exposure to harsh weather conditions.

  • Will a canopy change my ute’s storage capabilities?

    Yes, it will. Fitting a canopy means you might not be able to transport very large items like dirt bikes or big appliances. However, the trade-off is a large, protected space for other types of cargo. When choosing a 4×4 canopy, it’s important to weigh the benefits of security and weather protection against losing some traditional ute functionalities.

  • What makes ARB canopies better than the competition?

    With their customizability, wide range of accessories and durable, weatherproof construction, ARB canopies are a cut above standard 4×4 solutions. Whether you need extra storage space or you’re transforming your rig into an off-road machine, here’s why you should choose a 4×4 canopy from ARB.

    • Heavy-Duty Construction — ARB canopies are built to last, constructed from robust materials such as high-grade aluminium or fibreglass reinforced with a UV-stabilised gel coat. This ensures durability and protection against the elements.
    • Weatherproof Design — ARB canopies provide superior weather protection. Our canopies feature integrated weather seals, water-resistant hinges, and heavy-duty locks, keeping your gear locked, safe and dry even in the harshest conditions.
    • Easy Installation and Removal — ARB canopies are designed for easy installation and removal, allowing you to transform your 4×4 as needed quickly. This flexibility is especially beneficial if you use your vehicle for work and recreation.
    • Customisable Options — ARB offers a range of optional accessories and add-ons, allowing you to customise your canopy to suit your needs. From roof racks and internal storage solutions to lighting and ventilation options, you can tailor your ARB canopy to maximise functionality.
    • Security Features — ARB canopies prioritise security, with reinforced doors, sturdy locks and integrated alarm systems as optional extras. These features provide peace of mind, knowing your valuable equipment and belongings are well-protected.
    • Sleek Design — ARB canopies are designed with aesthetics in mind, featuring a sleek and streamlined appearance that complements the look of your 4×4. The attention to detail in the design ensures an integrated and stylish addition to your vehicle.

    At ARB, we’ve got everything you need to customise your 4×4. From spare wheel carriers to roof racks, suspension upgrades and more, take your vehicle to the next level with our range.

  • Can I customise my canopy to suit my needs?

    Absolutely! Canopies offer a range of customisation options. You can add ute liners, drawer systems, shelving, tie-down points, and fridge slides. For pet owners, canopies made from inert ABS plastic with sliding windows and vents are ideal for safely transporting animals.

  • Can canopies carry larger items and extra gear?

    Many canopies are compatible with optional roof rails and racks. This feature enhances your vehicle’s versatility, allowing you to carry long items like ladders, excess gear such as swags and jerry cans, or even fit touring accessories like rooftop tents or awnings.

  • What are ute canopies made from?

    Canopies have significantly evolved since their introduction in the mid-1970s. Earlier models were made from fibreglass, but modern canopies are typically crafted from ABS, a thermoplastic polymer that’s light, strong, and UV stable. This material ensures the canopy remains durable in harsh weather conditions.

  • What should I look for in terms of canopy design and fit?

    A well-designed canopy should mount correctly to your vehicle, attaching to the structural hard points of the tub rather than just clamping to the top edge. This design minimises the impact on the vehicle and prevents potential tub damage or cracking, eliminating warranty concerns.
