Explorer Canopy for 2nd Gen Tacoma – Black Smooth – Short Bed


Alu-Cab started out building aluminum canopies, although we offer a wide range of innovative off-road gear these days, we still pride ourselves on being canopy specialists. Aluminum vs Fiberglass: Our Tacoma bed shells are manufactured from aluminum which has superior strength to weight ratio, thus it is lighter than most of the popular fiberglass competing products. This inherent strength allows the Alu-Cab canopy to carry more load than any other canopies. This inherent strength allows the Alu-Cab canopy to carry more load than any other canopies. Aluminum VS Steel: The Alu-Cab Canopy is much lighter the any of the steel canopies available on the market, for example, the Alu-Cab Canopy for the Ford Ranger DC is up to 40% lighter than the competitors steel canopy. The Alu-Cab aluminum range of canopies offers the perfect solution for daily use, work, utilities, expeditions, hobbies, sport, holiday, camping and many other applications. Due to the large range of accessories that we offer our customers are able to convert their canopies to suit their different needs. Alu-Cab Canopies are quite easy to fit, even an un-trained fitment team will be able to fit the Toyota truck canopy in less than 45 minutes. This Tacoma bed shell’s fully recyclable metal does not rust, weather, or crack. Besides the advantages of aluminum construction, our canopies have been designed for ease of use, with 3 doors opening for easy access to your load-bin. Inside the canopy, the roof cross braces double as tie-down rails, as does internal base frame, so you can attach accessories to the canopy's interior, sides, or roof without any drilling. Or you can use the tie-down rails as lashing points to secure your cargo. This versatility means that it is entirely possible to use your 2005+ Toyota Tacoma camping shell as a workhorse during the week and an overlanding unit on the weekends and holidays. The best of both worlds!
