That is actually a Roof Rack... I believe we are still waiting on being able to get the full hard enclosures, roofs, and etc. for the t4... If you lived near us we could of made you one and put it on:)

Is the bottom of the roof rack made out of the same material as the back of the T2/T4? Would it work to keep rain and sun off of you or would it be in addition to the hard top?

Our roof is made from aluminum diamond plate, but I was concern about heat. After being out in 100 degrees there was not a problem. Stayed nice and cool. Our dune antenna attaches to the roof and I can stand or haul anything on the roof. Will post pics soon, just getting over a summer cold. Bummer!

I have seen people use the roof rack as just a roof...and it will keep the sun and water off of you. I have never road in one with just a roof rack in the rain but if it still drizzles on you some you can always take some of this plastic like material and fill around the roof rack and the cage where there is a little space. I will find out what those one people used.

I received a full canvas enclosure for a Trooper last week and it's not bad, but I will make a few changes with it to make it user friendly. In it's current form, the front wind screen can't be zipped down and it takes to long to put on & take off. I'm thinking ether a zip for the front screen or cut that section off completely and add Velcro hook & loop strips. The other change would be to add pop dome hardware instead of eyelets for the existing bolts to fasten into. The reason for these changes are two fold. Firstly, on a hot day or when the front screen gets very muddy, it needs to come off and secondly to get it off you have a lot of unscrewing to do including removing the light bar. Pop domes are the same as what's used in the marine industry and bolt straight into the existing hardware. It's a no-brainier really. I'll post photos of the un-modified enclosure on the Trooper soon.

Cheers Mike.

Here they are. The doors zip down and I just took it for it's 1st spin with it on and surprisingly, it's not to bad vision but not as good as glass.post-85-1224626721_thumb.jpgpost-85-1224626862_thumb.jpg

Cheers Mike

I dont look bad.. I thought it would be a lil tighter on it though. thats good that it is as clear as glass

Yep it does need to be tighter. There are no eyelets in the door sill area, just a row of Velcro. I don't want to stick on double-sided Velcro onto the sill to receive it so will leave until I get the pop domes. It should tighten up real good though.

Cheers Mike.

It looks great Mike! Keep us posted on how it does.

I think I'm going to go for the roof rack, since I have very little rain here, and I like to take long hauls if possible. I want to do a coast to coast run in Mexico next fall with some friends. We would start in San Felipe, and go over to Ensenada and back. Would use a lot of the roads used by the BAJA races, and the extra space will be necessary to carry extra tires, gas, camping gear and such.

With the roof rack it looks like just 6 bolts or so connect it for the t4, so should be easy enough to take on and off, since I have only 3 inch cleareance coming into my garage at this time.

Now that sounds like a fun ride, is it open to others? I've been watching the baja 1000, my son and friend just ran it, I he said he finished 8th in class and 52nd overall & just over 19 hours, 275x, motorcycle > 250,

I wonder how my tires would last on a trip like that.

Detbohica, a T4 with a hard top enclosure and canvas doors with a roof/gun rack is on it's way to me as we speak. NZ gets bucket loads of rain and the T4 will be used for Transporting elders on Maori land and for hunting. I would think just the roof rack for you in Mexico would be all you need.

MegZ, I have just picked up two Trooper canvas enclosures that I have had modified and she's good as gold. I changed my mind from my last post concerning the upgrades after I took the T2 for a blast with the stock enclosure on. What I've had done is added eyelets for the sill instead of Velcro, a zip for the front screen with tie downs and Marine hardware to secure the lower Firewall and rear lower panel ends. I was going to go the whole hog ,with making it easy to take off and put on but now my thinking is just leave it on. I will post photos tomorrow (my daughter borrowed my Camera) and it's fair to say,"this is the way to go". The upgrade cost was nz$225 for two enclosures.

Cheers Mike.

I've been thinking about a heater to go with an enclosure or to just keep my feet warm. Aircraft use the heat off the exhaust pipe to heat the air and blow it into the cabin. I was think of a shroud or something over the headers and suck air from there up through the area above the front driveling and blow it out on my feet with a muffin fan or something.

Any ideas or comments? <_<

Thanks

Jeff

for heat.... it would be a little more expensive but using the engine coolant run thruogh a heater core would be better. I've looked at universal kits for around $300. The only problem with heat from the exhaust might be the fumes pushed into the cab. .... just my thoughts. A.
