Great Shade

Alu-Cab Shadow Awning

Alu-Cab Shadow Awning

 

 

Make sure that your shade doesn’t run away from you with the Alu-Cab Shadow Awning. Built in the stormy Cape, this awning is designed to stand up to strong winds and inclement weather. Its aluminium-coated canvas provides 10 square metres of the coolest shade, spread across 270 degrees (and covering both the side and rear of your vehicle). Set-up is a simple one-man operation. The unit has just four arms, each containing a tie-down strap for really serious weather (a peg bag and pegs are also supplied). It weighs in at 24kg and can be attached to roof racks or load bars.

4x4 Straw

TJM Air Tec Snorkels

TJM Air Tec Snorkels

 

 

Not only do they assist with water crossings; their primary purpose is enabling clean air induction when the vehicle is immersed in dust. This has a number of benefits: air quality at roof level is cleaner and cooler than air travelling via the bonnet, so this means both greater fuel efficiency and less clogging of air filters. These are very important factors, particularly when four-wheeling on dry, dusty roads.
