Hey guys
I'm thinking about getting a costum cnc cover made for my 2015 4x4. Something to make it more useful and organized for my everyday use as a regular car and better loading and organizing for off road use.
I'm having a friend who does mainly bumpers and roof racks take care of it. I'm posting some pictures of the designs of bed caps he's done before.
Could you please give me some guidelines and tips that I should mention to him to get the best result. Like locks and hinges to use and general design features. And if I should ask to add in any other features you think could be useful (current design has a rack and 4 gallons)

Those really look good Shayan, :thumbup: ..... but are they practical? I think you would be far better off with a lockable canopy, that way you have more load space to utilise and except for what you carry on a roof rack, it's all secure under lock and key. Just my thoughts. :winkx:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
