I have ordered and am waiting for a D 40 but in the meantime am wanting to order a canopy. My problem is only having 2.03 metres clearance into the garage.
Seems the only ones suitable are the standard height ones i.e flush with the cab and the only ones I can find are ARB and Flexiglass, TJM to date do'nt make a low one and Carryboy want $3400 for one
I prefer the ARB but unfortunatly it rises up towards the rear making it higher than the cab. From what I can estimate, tray plus canopy plus roof racks, gives an overall height of exactly 2 metres, not a lot of clearance.
I would like to know if anyone else has a similar setup and if they can confirm these measurments or any alternatives.

Cheers Dave

I'm not familiar with your proposed vehicle, but I had a similar problem with mine and the garage. Initially it was as tight as a new bride .. ;-)
But after a relatively short period of time the suspension settled in and overall height probably dropped about 10+ mm.

You would most likely experience something similar.

My ARB canopy on the Triton is pretty dead level... Design may hace changed since '03 though... After about 10,000km, my rear suspension settled almost exactly 10mm, as mentioned previously. I guess the other problem will be if you decide you need more clearance and eant bigger rubber or a lift. Can the garage be easily modified to suit...?
