What Brand Lid?

Hi All,

Looking to get a lid for the machine. What brands to people have and what do you think of them?

Thanks

i have the ford lid and spoiler, but when i get my next ute i'm going for the carryboy lid. the difference being carryboy uses the keypad to lock/unlock, has led light in the wing, light inside the lid, slightly larger wing and i think it comes down over the tray a little more...
i get sick of the crap key lock on the ford lid, thats probably the main reason i'm going for carry boy.
and i think the carryboy is slightly cheaper...
jump on their website www.carryboy.com.au i think it is

I asked myself the same question, in the end I got the ford one, got used to it now, and the 2 key system is easy enough and not all that hard,.. but a cabin release would have been nice

Re: What Brand Lid?

The ford lid is manufactured by tuff lid or tuff stuff or somethin that sounds like that, the dude at bluey's reckond that he can supply the same thing a bit cheaper. Don't think it comes with the ford badges but.

Thanks all.

I'm going to have a look a the local Carryboy showroom sometime soon. They're also selling the Tuff Tonneaus. They are supposed to be really light and easy to remove. This I need because I will need the cover for security but will be taking it off alot when we cart the dogs.

Security is no longer an issue with a couple of Dobermans in the back, except you have to protect stuff from them instead of passers-by.
