ARB Canopies for Ford Falcon FG Ute
An Australian made canopy by ARB is the ideal solution for ute owners looking for increased storage space and the ability to lock up their valuables. And to add to the extensive range already on offer, new smooth and grained high roof canopies are now available for the Ford Falcon FG ute.Manufactured from thermal-formed ABS sheet, ARB canopies utilise a strong and lightweight one piece shell with a premium quality UV stable finish to withstand the harsh Australian environment. The high roof design of the new Ford canopy has been master crafted in Australia to meet the unique shape and style of the vehicle, and mounts directly to the ute tub to provide an optimum seal against water and dust ingress.
Available in the original economical textured finish or the enhanced strength of the heavy duty smooth finish, ARB’s canopies for the Falcon FG ute are built to order, enabling Ford owners to customise the window to suit individual needs. This entails selecting either sliding side windows, lift up side configuration windoors, or a combination of both. All windows and rear doors also incorporate frameless and tinted 4mm thick safety glass, with the rear door also being curved for better fitment to the tailgate.
Optional flyscreens can be fitted to sliding side windows for increased practicality, especially if the vehicle is to be used as an occasional sleeping area. Another option is security mesh, which is laser cut from solid sheet steel and powder coated to offer extra security and peace of mind when transporting animals.
The Falcon canopy also integrates a number of newer features which are currently being introduced into the ARB range. A front lift up window, designed and manufactured by ARB in Melbourne, will allow easier access to the window for ease of cleaning and improved driver visibility. ARB’s canopies now incorporate innovative D-shaped handles on all rear doors and lift up side windows. Australian made, the new handles are externally lockable with keyed alike access and are designed to ensure no dust or water can enter the canopy via the handle area. All ARB canopies are supported by a full three year nationwide warranty, including items such as windows and handles. For owners requiring extra room to transport long or bulky items, ARB has a range of canopy roof racks and bars for the Falcon FG ute. All canopy mounted bar and rack systems are load rated to carry 100kg due to an internal frame which is securely mounted to the ute body, ensuring that the vehicle, not the canopy, is supporting the load. Another product that has been designed for Falcon FG utes with canopies is an ARB canopy vent. Able to be fitted to the front or rear of your canopy roof, an ARB canopy vent will pressurise the canopy interior, reducing dust ingress from the tailgate when travelling on dusty road. It has the additional benefit of improved air intake into your canopy when transporting animals. ARB Sahara Bar for Mitsubishi Pajero NS To add to the already extensive range of accessories available for the Mitsubishi Pajero NS, ARB has recently released a Sahara bar as a stylish and innovative protection option for vehicle owners. Featuring ARB’s renowned five fold upswept and tapered wing design, the new Sahara bar is exceptionally strong and will provide your vehicle with a massive amount of frontal protection. The bar also features a split pan, which further increases the strength of the bar while facilitating airflow to the engine. The bar’s vehicle-specific design ensures that air bag functionality is not adversely affected following fitment, and has also been engineered to withstand the extra stresses placed on the bar during vehicle recovery.
Warn winch models from 8000lb to 9500lb can be selected depending on your individual requirements, while the bar is also suitable for a range of IPF driving lights. For those thinking of heading off road, tough 2mm steel stone guards under the centre pan and wings will assist in protecting the undercarriage from rocks and road debris, while the original recovery points under the centre pan are retained for use in recovery situations. Provision for CB aerials includes 16mm plugs for added aesthetics when aerials are not fitted.
This particular Sahara bar offers Pajero owners the added option of configuring the bar either with or without the 76mm polished centre tube available for all ARB Sahara bars. Whatever option you take, all models feature combination turn signal/running lights in the wings and quality urethane buffers and fog light inserts. Finished in a durable millennium grey powder coat with the option to colour code, an ARB Sahara bar will provide your vehicle with stylish and durable frontal protection. ARB has a vast array of other accessories designed for the Pajero, including deluxe bull bars, rear step tow bars, ARB Air Lockers, and Old Man Emu suspension systems.
