Whilst we aim to keep some of these in-stock ready for immediate dispatch, they can sell-out quickly which means it may be two weeks from date of order for us to manufacture and ship yours.
Designed for installation in a Maxliner Venture canopy using basic tools and existing bolt positions in the Maxliner canopy structure.
The full-length shelf includes access points on both sides, providing an easy way to reach through the side windows to grab things from the front of the shelf.
The full-length storage shelf has a 35kg load rating which, is more than enough for the kind of things that you’d want to keep up there such as jackets, hats, rugs, recovery straps and a first aid kit.
The load rating has been verified through extensive off-road testing and our thorough engineering validation process which, includes FEA (finite element analysis).
Please note that if you have roof racks fitted, the 14kg weight of the storage shelf and anything carried within should be subtracted from the available capacity of the canopy roof. For example, if you load your basket to the maximum of 35kg, the capacity of the roof is reduced by 49kg.
Maxliner list the capacity of the roof as 100kg dynamic (driving on and off-road) and 300kg static (vehicle parked).
The load rating is for a uniformly distributed load (UDL) which means the 35kg is spread evenly over the basket. If you decide to hang a 35kg object from one of bars that make up the basket mesh floor design, you will probably bend the basket.
We’ve designed the storage shelf to minimise the reduction in rear vision from the driver’s mirror. Our team worked through three prototypes in different traffic conditions with several drivers to establish the best basket height which, provides great storage volume whilst not hanging too low from the Venture canopy ceiling.
Internal dimensions of the basket:
- Width = 885mm
- Depth = 990mm
- Height = 165mm
Single person installation.
The shelf is shipped in several pieces for self-assembly into the vehicle. Assembly of the shelf must be done in conjunction with installation in the vehicle. Fully assembling the shelf outside will make it impossible to install.
Installed using the standard bolts within the Maxliner Venture canopy support structure.
Next-Gen Rangers with the Maxliner Venture canopy should already have the Ford J-Brace fitted as required when installing any structure above the top of the tub.
