    I guess ARB doesn’t get it do they. That buttress revolting looks has been long sailed with the Aztek and the Ridgeline and the weird GM designs. Good luck selling that

    I was curious to know if they had a long bed version. I went to the site and there is no tacoma to choose from. Only hilux, and 2 other models.

    There’s plenty of new and recent production trucks/suvs with that same style of rear canopy in South Korea.

    depends....if the ARB build was say free, as in BP51's dakars front bumper air lockers etc etc.....if it was free, I'd do the trade off, but other than that......no

    The rearward visibility would suck, and a lot less room that a “normal” canopy. Like driving the worlds largest hatchback.

    The only advantage I could see is access to most of the bed without “crawling in the back” or reaching through a side hatch like a normal canopy. I wonder if that’s a real advantage. I would guess the main reason people would buy one is because they think it looks cool, or they’ve been dipping a little too far into the :rasta:
