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.

Been thinking about that and it would take a hole in the header pipes to get gassed, other concern might be sucking up dust that gets in the engine compartment. The good part is your only moving air, not liquid.

I have just had a full enclosure made for a Renegade from scratch by a marine trimmer here and it is very very good. I'll take some photos tomorrow next to the stock Trooper enclosure so you can see the difference and post it in the Renegade section. Seeing is believing just how good this enclosure is.

Cheers Mike.

Hey all!

My husband and I bought one of the first hard tops Joyner released for the T2. The top, front windshield area and the back window area are all molded of the same fiberglass as the body. It is also the same color as the body. The windshield and back window are plexiglass. The doors are soft, and attach to the door opening with screws. They opened with a huge zipper, much like a tent door. We did not like the doors at all, so we took them off. The door around the bottom where you get into the buggy stuck up above the frame about an inch, creating a real tripping hazard if you tried to get in and out of the buggy in a hurry.

As for bringing in dust, that does happen, but not intolerable. Running without the doors keeps enough air flow for us. There is a little more engine heat in the cab, but again not intolerable. All in all, it has been a good investment for us, simply due to the protection from the sun it gives. It will also help keep you dry in a gentle rain....hopefully the wind isn't blowing!

Hi Kinarfi, thanks for the welcome.

Used to be on ridearizona.com, Rocmoc invited me over. I'm still stumbling around the site, but I'll get there.

A little history,

I ordered our T2 for my hubby as a surprise, and took delivery on it in May of 08. Like every other trooper (and any atv for that matter) owner, we also had our issues with it. But we have worked the bugs out of it, and are incredibly happy with it.

We take it out nearly every weekend. As a matter of fact, I'm going to have it loaded and ready to go tonight when hubby gets home - and we are gone until about 10 tonight. Arizona summer night rides are sweet!

I was just on Team Joyner's website looking at the hard tops for the T2 - this is the first I have seen the camo hard top with soft doors - that is exactly what ours looked like. Again, we did not like the doors because of the way they zipped open, and the tripping hazard they created. When you opened the windows, the flap just hung, with no where to tuck it. We assumed it would fly in the wind. We never left the house with it, while the doors were attached. The doors are not easily removable, either. Hubby says he is going to modify removable jeep doors and attach those.

Well I have had an absolute crap of a week. My Uncle who has been fighting cancer for 20 years has finally lost his battle but the real shock was the man who designed and made my Renegade Enclosure, Leigh at only 47 years old, passed away, however my 98 year old Grandma, bless her, survived 3 small Strokes this week.

kandlinaz, don't throw away those soft doors, your need them for winter but I would suggest you upgrade the zips. If you don't, your know what I mean the next time you go through mud with them. Upgrade to thick plastic marine grade zips.

      A desert camp trip we took at Christmas in the desert

      I installed a new GY6 150cc engine in a Bull Dog Pup 200 and when I put it in drive, it grinds for a second and then runs fine.  Works great when i place it in reverse.  Could it be from it idling too high?   Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks!!!!
