    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    For those with Gladiator I’ve worked with UpTop overland on a solution. Some minor tweaks are needed on the fairing but I think we have it down pat. No issues with clearance with my Zarges cases either. Ability to also remove to use freedom tops without a big ordeal. Modular in setup. IE can get...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    I’ve used the past week at near 10k without any issues. The only issue I have with the Dickenson having used webasto diesel/gas and a hydronic system before is the lack of a thermostatic control. I also feel that the fan in the unit to be lacking. I have used a scirocco fan near the unit to...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    On my diesel gladiator this past week I just removed the fuel restrictor to allow high flow diesel pumps (ie truck stop pumps). Now done these style fillers would work perfectly. We are heading out to Overland Expo this weekend by way of Colorado from GA. While there we are making our stop at...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    Meant to say JCR won’t sell you just half a rack. I spoke with him a bit ago about this as he doesn’t recommend using just half a rack. There have been others like rin who have modified what I believe to be a front runner rack to work with their alucab. But no other straight fits like the...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    I’ll look into this, might be our only option in the end. I’d prefer easier access and of course always worried about overall height of the vehicle. Im racking my brain and just can decide. For the rotopax what where your issues previously, just leaking? You mentioned replacing caps, if so what...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    I would speak with them. But it is based off of their alpha rack but only the front portion. I am having it installed next week and will put up pictures probably some video too on my social media accounts. We are also have some Baja Designs xl Link lights installed with the rack. Should work...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    Looking for some type of ideas to help store extra diesel. Since the long range tanks are still pending and will most likely stay that way for a good bit for the gladiator. We are considering mounting a rotopax unit to the rear door next to our DMOS mount. Our maxtrax are mounted on the...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    My solution for the rear view mirror. Brandmotion GVWR-8886. I can post up some video if anyone would like. Love the thing. Works well all around. Plus has a front camera as well, and a park feature when left in a parking lot. IE the unit acts like a dash cam as well. It totally replaces the...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    Your gonna need to also add stronger struts. Using expedition essentials mount. A note when installing put bracket as high up as possible to clear the latches and still be able to open the door. You will also most likely need nutserts to finish the install. I went this route as I already hd them...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    What made you change your mind? Curious, personally I am afraid to loose the extra storage room. As well as some security concerns, though it would ease some border crossings.

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    After a lot of research shortly after my last post. I did find some anti-freeze heating cable 12v that theoretically could be used to wrap around the pipe near the bulkhead in hopes to keep it form freezing. It’s only 15watts maximum so power draw is right over 1amp. Compared to the lads that’s...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    Do you have a link to the pads you are using. Curious on their draw too, but can look this up myself. Did you put some type of switch on the pads? Although I wasn’t too worried about internal tank. I did consider this. Would be cool to use the RedArc to have it trigger on when the temperature...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    Looking for a better solution for water outlet. Ended up having ours freeze and crack the outside fitting. Note: I did consider this a possible issue and insulated the lines to the faucet. It only froze a few inches in. BTW: This was a test after all install was complete to see if this would be...

    Recommend using a different inverter. Look at the Cotek SP inverters. Reason is if you ever upgrade to the RedArc Redvision you can control this inverter through the control panel. Double check with RedArc as functionality may be there in the manager 30 as well.

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    Length of time in the shop is all dependent on what you want to get installed. I’d assume anywhere from 1-10days. Now that is far from the average. We had a more Minimalistic install. Choosing instead to install many accessories ourselves. We had the dealer AVO install and seal the canopy...
