I have Rassliders ( I think that what they are called ) I don't know I would call em a true slider they are fixed to the chassis and seem very strong .

I had steps like those on my Hilux they bent very easily but you could jump on em to straighten them .
I replaced them with custom sliders before I bent the sills .
I had ARB side rails/steps on my 2.8 Hilux and managed to bend them and the sills

Like Scamper says the std steps and ok for a lot of people.

Been looking for a while for a canopy that suits my needs.
Wasn't interested in the traditional ones, I wanted more room to use the sides and eventually didn't think I needed glass in the sides.
Saw this brand recently while on holiday in Sydney.
Looked them up on line and purchased one.
Delivered to Darwin.
Fiberglass and painted.
Easy to fit yourself. Clamp on and no drilling.

I quite like those gullwings - easy access in from the side to stuff inside
A bit expensive over here and because I want to be able to run the vehicle with side access for cameras and the like I've settled for simple sliding side windows

Caddy Canopies sells them in Australia. They are an 'Alpha' from Thailand.
Try: http://www.utecanopies.com.au/dmax_2012_crewcab.html

Scampers is the 'CME' model. I went with the 'CME-W' as the they had one in stock at a 'too good to pass up price' at the time I was purchasing as
I was also planning on the 'CME' model. The side and rear glass sections are mounted in a frame and aren't structural (no hinges attached
directly, etc).

Thanks Johnhu and Sparra,
My original post had where I bought them from and how I got them delivered.
And to check out the specials on line.
Must have got censored, cause it's not there now.
I believe if you find a good product, let others know.

It's a bit of a laugh about putting names of products on this forum.
I notice the latest "what fridge you have in your Isuzu" has allowed several name brands with out censorship.

Nobody's "censored' any of your posts mate, I just went right through the logs around that time and nothing of yours was touched nor is there any problem posting the info you say was removed anyway, there has never been a problem naming companies on this forum and naming people who provide good service has always been encouraged, the only thing we ask is that you don't name a company that your heavily criticising in any way, if a company takes exception to what you have to say (and this happened recently on another forum close to this one) and decides to take action it will be you who gets the invite to court as we have to hand your information over, so we ask that it's not done and we don't find ourselves in that situation to start with.

My apologies for my last post. I made a mistake about having put the name of the canopy in.

The canopy is made in Thailand, I think most are, imported to Aust by "Caddy Canopies",
Due to living in Darwin we have to do a lot of research on the net.
Look up Caddy canopies "weekly specials", thats where I got this one from.

They are fiberglass, and come lined with carpet, mine with roof racks, pre painted to your vehicles colour.
Very solid. Come in 4 variety's.
Tiny down side is they put an internal light in the middle. You have to be 6 foot tall to reach the switch.
I'm going to rig up a switch for the back light where I can reach it.

I agree with this one Scamper - Although being 6'3" I can reach the light. It doesn't help though when the back is packed to the roof for a trip so the light can't help much anyhow :-)

I actually disconnected the light (which is a low draw LED, but powered from the main battery). Instead I'm in the process of adding an LED light strip to the inside of the rear door frame. When the rear door is open it will be aiming down. This will be powered from my Aux battery which is in the rear tub (under the side wings of storage drawers), and be triggered by the same door sensor/switch that the original light was powered from so it will come on automatically when the rear door is opened. I also plan to add some led strips to the side gullwing doors on the side as well.
