TROOPY RUNDOWN - EXTERIOR

Updated: Jun 5, 2019



THE EXTERIOR

Tyres

'Mickey Thompson' ATZ P3s 285/75/16 on black ROH steel rims. A good solid, all round, quiet tyre that will suit the areas we plan on travelling to.

Wheel Carrier

'Outback Accessories' dual wheel carrier.  A robust bar with several good features - gas struts, ergonomic easy to use handles/latch, stay open feature and chequer plate top.  We brought this second hand and had it blast and re-powder coated.

Other:

Stock bullbar - blasted and re-powdercoated

10000LB Winch

IPF HID Spotlights

GME 5100S UHF Radio

Custom Flares

Ram snorkel head

Diff breathers

Dual battery

THE ROOF

'Alucab Hercules'

The team at Quick Pitch did an awesome job with the roof conversion. The roof is made specially for the Troopcarrier in South Africa​ by Alucab.  Being pre-made the install takes only one day.  

The whole roof is on heavy duty gas struts which, when the rear clips are undone, lift the roof up with ease.

The sides are a heavy duty canvas with large windows on all sides.  A canopy at the rear gives the option of having the rear window open while providing cover from the elements.

The bed is high density memory foam and rests on a hinged frame also on gas struts.  Being on gas struts allows it to be lifted up and down to give full head height in the rear in seconds.

The roof kit also includes an overhead console above the front seats, LED lighting in the front, rear and reading lights for when the bed is down.
