Hi guys

Just hoping to follow up and find out how everyone who got the accent canopy has found it? I’m looking at getting one, but read some bad reviews online.

Thanks guys

Hey bud I’ve had mine for a couple of years and can’t really fault it, easy to open seals well and no issues with dust ingress.

Have had mine for a few years now with no regrets if any I would certainly buy another one for next vehicle.

ARB Base Rack? Any good? Only available on canopy, not cab?

The base rack looks the goods if you want versatility. And no, not just for canopy only. Comes with a roof rail kit.

Would be nice if ARB offered a rack similar to the platform (think tradie rack minus the sides) for those that don't necessarily want to mount awnings on the side, but still utilise a huge rack space for lashing swags down etc.

Hi Panda
Do you still have this Ranger? If you do can you do me a favour? I need to know the height from the top of the Accent canopy to the top of the rack. I'm getting nothing from ARB themselves, very unhelpful.
