NP300 Chequer Plate Cover

Now in stock ! Only £958.80....

As the first of the new Nissan Navara NP300 orders arrive and begin to filter into the dealer system, 4x4at.com are pleased to say the stock and choice of accessories for this great new vehicle builds almost on a daily basis...Latest of these is the Navara NP300 version of the world recognised and ever popular Mountain Top Chequer plate load bed cover.
Made from a durable heavy duty chequer plate finish this is a non drill, super stylish, easy fit solid load bed cover that will keep your cargo secure and away from the elements. It’s lockable to the vehicle tailgate and when opened lifts with the aid of two gas rams.
It is also the ideal load bed cover for those that need to occasionally have the load bed fully open, as it also can be easily entirely removed from the vehicle entirely with a minimum of fuss. Another great benefit of fitting a load bed cover such as the Mountain Top Chequer plate is the increased fuel economy as it cuts down the drag associated with an open load bed.

Great reaction to the New ImprovedFord Ranger....! - 18/02/16

Fiat Fullback

The Ford Ranger was always a great drive...but in it’s latest incarnation with the reworked front grille, super well appointed interior and revised dash, it just took a further leap forward. No question, these aspects add to the driver experience.....and particularly the 8” driver infotainment screen that acts as a hub for most of the driver functionality. Pictured above is one of 4x4at.com’s own accessorised new style Rangers at a recent event, sporting the Type E canopy from Alpha which always looks good... but somehow, on new Ranger Wildtrak, looks better than ever.
However in driving this new Ranger to the event I was struck by just how improved the overall “drive” was. I suspect the electronic power steering may play a big part in it, but no argument this is a class act ! Could this Ranger be the best ever pick up.....to date ??

Giving something back….. - 22/12/15

You may not know but Thailand is a major producer of vehicle parts and accessories. Our ongoing relationship with this wonderful nation - the “land of smiles” has played a vital role in the success of 4x4 Accessories and Tyres over the past 23 years. Anyone who has ever visited Thailand cannot fail to be won over by the decency and nobility of the Thai people.

As we have grown, we at 4x4.at.com have been looking for a way that we could give a little back to Thailand, so when we were offered the opportunity to sponsor an orphanage in the centre of the country we knew this was a time to translate words into action.

Fiat Fullback

It was a delight therefore, at the end of 2015 to see 4x4at.com’s contribution first hand and…making a real difference. The day we visited, together with volunteers from our Canopy Truck top manufacturer Aeroklas, we provided meals for more than 250 orphan children. We will be personally doing the same again in April.

Fiat Fullback

It was a truly touching day, as the children were so happy, smiley and well behaved….!

We at 4x4at.com hope to keep supporting this great venture for many years to come…..

First glimpse of another new Canopy Truck top forthe new Nissan NP300 -The Alpha GSR - 16/12/15

Hot on the heals of our earlier post on the new Alpha Type E canopy for the new Nissan NP300, comes another very stylish, practical and durable canopy from world renowned manufacturer Alpha.

Fiat Fullback

As with everything Alpha, this top fits like a glove, as well as looking the part. We notice that 4x4at.com customers who buy Alpha canopies keep coming back for the same thing over again on their vehicles. Always beautifully finished, clients seem to love the details....Roof Bars, central locking etc, just as much as the 1st class integrity of latches, handles and locks...These tops are built to last, so represent great value.

Stock of the GSRs for NP300 hasn’t arrived with us yet, but as ever, we’re expecting demand to be high as we know from our friends within the Nissan dealer network....forward sales on the NP300 Navara are strong....

If you have an NP300 on order....do signal your interest now, to avoid any delay, or disappointment.

We've cleaned them out........of Wildtrak Orange ! - 13/11/15

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak Orange colour was an instant success from the moment it was launched...but recently we've prepared so many canopies and sports lids in the colour....we've completely exhausted our suppliers stock !! Don't panic though, more is on the way....directly !

Fiat Fullback Fiat Fullback

When you look at these pictures of the Alpha Type E canopy and the Alpha SC-Z sportslid in Wildtrak Orange on the Ranger Wildtrak, you can certainly see why it has been so popular.

This orange colour has become synonymous with the top of the range incarnation of the class leading pickup from Ford. The interiors of all Ranger Wildtraks have an orange trimmer, and this theme is being carried through when the much anticipated new upgrade arrives in 2016.In fact, we understand this orange colour has been so well received that another orange colour is in the pipeline for Ford Ranger Wildtrak – Pride Orange. We haven't seen it yet, but watch this space for news as it filters through....

Another entrant into the booming Pickup Truck Market....The Fiat Fullback......with a familiar look ? - 13/11/15

Fiat have announced the launch in Autumn 2016 of their offering into the growing pickup Truck market. Following on from similar announcements of the new Nissan Navara NP300, Renault Alaskan and Mercedes' first foray into the sector, Fiat have now confirmed the Fullback arrives in the UK in the latter part of next year.

Fiat Fullback Fiat Fullback

Clearly heavily based on, and sharing floorplan with, the recently launched Mitsubishi L200 Series 5, the Fullback will only come to the UK in DoubleCab fomat. There will however be at least two trim levels and two power option outputs of 150 & 180 BHP from the 2.4 litre aluminium turbo diesel powerplant. There will be also be an automatic transmission option to supplement the the regular 5 speed manual. All dimensions will be identical to the Mitsubishi L200 Series 5, and payload will be 1045Kg.

UK pricing has yet to be announced being due closer to the launch...

Given the similarity to Mitsubishi's L200, that has received universal critical acclaim – what do you think of this vehicle ?

Another stylish Trucktop Canopy for Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 Barbarian.....! - 13/11/15

The Alpha Type E hardtop is real favourite across all pickup truck owners...whether it be Ford Ranger, VW Amarok, or Toyota Hilux, the Type E has been seen as the perfect combination between style and Alpha's enduring engineering excellence.

Unsurprisingly then, anticipation was high to see the very latest incarnation of Type E for Mitsubishi L200 Series 5. You can judge the answer for yourself in the below pic. The trademark black pillar is there, as is the attention to detail we have grown used to with Alpha Canopies. We think Alpha have managed to blend the flowing line of the new L200 into the distinctive look of the Type E canopy very effectively.

L200 Alpha Type-e

All the usual touches are in evidence with this Alpha Type E canopy hardtop, High quality fittings, locks and handles, a really good tight fit to the load area, and of course the Dupont paint finish to complete the job...

Keep an eye on the site for the arrival of the bulk stock of this one.....We're sure it will move quickly...

What do you think ? Which canopy have you liked most and on which vehicle ? Let us know....we love to get feedback on our accessories and the 4x4 pickups they are fitted to...

Great new look for the revised 2016 Ford Ranger ! - 20/10/15

Pictures are now emerging of the new revised look for the hugely popular Ford Ranger pickup. Whilst the changes are a revison rather than a chassis up re-design, it appears Ford have scored a bulls eye in capturing the mood and movement in market tastes with their Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup.

The main external change is the trapezoidal front grille, see pictures below, which gives the vehicle a more muscular look and we think has a semi American look to it ? What do you think ?

Tailgate Damper Tailgate Damper

The other major improvement is the interior dash layout. Once again it appears that even if the changes are "evolution rather than revolution" though major progress has been made in terms of the ergonomics, aesthetics and overall quality feel in terms of the materials used. And yes, that is a massive 8" Infotainment/Satnav screen as well.....! All told the whole interior gets a meaningful hike in comfort levels and so feels even more car like than before.

Tailgate Damper

Engine efficiencies have also been improved across the piece, principally by use of a new electric power steering system but another significant addition is the appearance of Hill descent control for the first time.

Timescales for arrival on our shores for the 2016 Ranger have yet to be exactly determined but we at 4x4at.com can't wait to get our hands on one.....

The ULTIMATE "feel-good" productfor your Pickup..... - 31/9/15

Once in a while a product comes along that changes your life !! As far as the world of pickup trucks goes we have just such a product now.....! All are clients are loving our new soft opening tailgate damper kits:

Tailgate Damper

As is so often the case, the best products are the simplest ones and this is certainly the case here. Whether it be Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux, Isuzu Dmax or virtually any other pickup, this is an accessory not to be missed....

By their very nature, tailgates are necessarily heavy and when they drop...they drop ! Ever had that situation where the tailgate is wet and you loose your grip ???... Crash !! Had something else in your other hand and the tailgate you can't fully control the drop of the tailgate as it falls???... Bang !! Just watch the below video – they say a picture tells a thousand words...we think this video counts for ten thousand words !

As well as just adding a real "feel-good" factor to your pickup truck this Tailgate Damper Kit has a genuine safety connotation also.....Ever been worried about a child operating around the back of a pick up. We know our kids love to help out, but a child opening a regular tailgate usually gets, at best, a shock and at worst, a nasty injury....

These great value kits are exclusive to 4x4at.com and our sister company NLG....Can you afford NOT to have one on your truck ? The ultimate "feel good" product ??? You will too, using it...and knowing your tailgate is safe!

Who will win the battle to fill the void left by the demise of the Defender ? - 30/9/15

Following on from our last blog post on the imminent closing of production of the Land Rover Defender...Whose 4x4 vehicle do you think is best placed or most likely to win the battle for the space that the Defender will inevitably leave ?

The Defender in all of it's guises – Utility Wagon, Hardtop, Pickup etc has been used for so many applications - UK registrations amount to around 6,000 per year. The military, utility companies and the emergency services to name just a few. Isuzu Dmax have a strong foothold with the agricultural sector, Toyota Hilux have been popular with the utilities, Ford Ranger is definitely a favourite with various Police, Fire and Mountain Rescue services. The new Mitsubishi L200 Mk7 has been fantastically well received by all so may be eminently well placed to take market share from all the above ?

Then of course there are the completely new players in the 4x4 pickup market....More detail is trickling out on Mercedes' first offering into the 4x4 pickup truck market and the Renault Alaskan is on its way, as is the the new model Nissan Navara NP300, that we think will both come from the same plant in Barcelona and more than likely share some common aspects between them. Obviously Nissan are in no way new comers to the market, but the new Navara is very definitely an entirely new vehicle in every respect.....

Land Rover Defender

At 4x4at.com and our sister company NLG we are well used to supplying and specifying 4x4 accessories for all these vehicles and more besides. Exciting times then for all, like us, who love their 4x4 pickups !

Truly the end of an era...... Prepare to say farewell to an iconic vehicle .....like them or loath them ! - 29/9/15

As most are well aware now....after 67 years in one form or another, Maurice Wilkes' legendary Land Rover design, latterly the Defender, comes to the end of UK production in December. Like it or loath it, one cannot deny that this shape is "baked-in" to modern day British history. Safety regs, modern day emission standards and the cost of manufacture spell the end – the car is still ostensibly hand made. Jaguar Land Rover, now owned by the Indian conglomerate Tata operate on a global level, so having a vehicle in the range that cannot be sold in, say the USA, probably doesn't make a great deal of sense. Still it will be a great shame to see this Oh so familiar shape come come to the end of new vehicle production. There are the conspiracy theorists out there, who are adamant, given the Tata connection, that the entire production line will be containerised and sent to India, with lower labour costs, to continue production for markets who don't have such stringent safety or emission control.

Land Rover Defender

Right now though, the countdown celebration to the end of production has begun and the sale of the 2,000,000 th Land Rover Defender: S90 HUE, the 2,000,000th car goes to auction for charity at Bonhams on 16th December....the last day of production...... On the basis the final run special editions are priced at around £63,000 there's no telling what this one might achieve at auction........

4x4at.com's sister company NLG Makes a real impact at the Emergency Services Show 2015 With Carryboy Workman Canopy and Bedslide.... - 07/9/15

Some of our colleagues have just returned from the NEC after an exhausting but very beneficial few days at the NEC Birmingham, exhibiting our range of products well suited for use by the Emergency Services....Whether it be the Police, Fire Service, Mountain Rescue, Coastguard or even the Air Accident Investigation Branch, we saw them all.... And they all loved the simple durable practicality of our 4x4 products. It was also the first official outing for our rather substantial new logo-ed exhibition arch, which showcased Toyota Hilux 4x4 accessories, but needless to say, there are versions of these for just about all 4x4 pickups including Ford Ranger and Isuzu Dmax etc.

NLG Show

Shown here fitted to the vehicle is the amazingly practical and durable Carryboy Workman, triple access gullwing door canopy together with the heavy duty bedslide, also from Carryboy......

The combination of these two products means climbing into the back of a pickup, to get access to something stored at the bulkhead end, is a thing of the past !!! A pickup with total access....You can open doors, pull out the slide and get on immediately with the job ! The canopy is painted GRP( can be colour coded to your vehicle too), it can be ordered with a solid rear tailgate if preferred. The chequer plate bedslide in standard form, is rated up to a load capacity of 300Kg, and has several locking positions so it can be safely fixed at the desired position, in or out of the vehicle.

NLG Show

Another product causing a stir, as normal, was the tailgate damper kit, allowing the tailgate to safely drop in a completely controlled way – the ultimate "feelgood" product for your pickup, as well as having a real safety aspect to it.

Please note the Carryboy Workman truck top and Carryboy Bed slide, as well as the Hilux tailgate damper, are all available on 4x4at.com!

Renault reveal their Pickup concept – the ALASKAN. - 07/9/15

Following on from what seems like years of speculation Renault have finally confirmed some detail on their forthcoming Alaskan pickup which is due to hit the UK in 2017. The pictures here are of the final concept vehicle though insider sources confirm that the production example will be very similar.

Renault Alaskan

The Alaskan will be sold globally and built alongside sibling models from Nissan and Mercedes Benz, though there will be some common aspects between them, they are likely to have a very different market positioning. The Alaskan for example, is going to be focused toward private leisure customers.

Renault Alaskan

By all accounts the Alaskan will benefit from a relatively superior cabin, LED lighting, satin paint together with brushed and polished exterior metal finishes. We're unsure as to whether the 21" wheels here will make it to production spec....but they look great ! Also check out the interesting looking solar panel roof sytem shown below....

Renault Alaskan

The one tonne vehicle is powered initially by a 163 bhp 2.3 litre twin turbo diesel. Launching into some markets in summer 2016 we understand the Alaskan will go on sale in Europe a year later in 2017.

Breaking News ! 4x4at.com to exhibit at the Emergency Services Show – NEC 23rd – 24th September 2015. - 05/8/15

Recently, the take up of some of our commercial hard top canopies by some of the Emergency Services for their fleets of pickups, has been so great we've elected to take a stand at the NEC for the forthcoming Emergency Services show.

Our range of truck tops for Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger in particular, have proven really popular with the Police and Fire services alike. But we've also seen both the Mitsubishi L200 and Isuzu Dmax used in these applications as well as Mountain Rescue and the breakdown roadside repair/recovery companies. Pictured below is just one of the vehicles sporting one of our easy access side entry gullwing door canopy truck tops, in rugged terrain....

More detail on the new 2016 Toyota Hilux emerges - 03/8/15

The Toyota Hilux pickup had a great deal to do with originating the pickup truck as we know it today. It is a concept, and now genre, that has been widely adopted by most volume manufacturers. The Hilux is still the market leader in Europe with more registrations than any other pick up. But with new models also coming right now from Mitsubishi with their super accomplished L200, and the new Nissan Navara along shortly, 4x4 pickups just get more advanced and desirable across the piece – these great vehicles will be keeping Toyota on their toes.

Still, it's not surprising though that there is so much interest in the latest incarnation of this most enduring of pickup trucks. We've now seen some more detail on the new version Hilux even though we, in the UK, are still several months before official launch.

Naturally we at 4x4at.com will be accessorizing all of them, keep an eye on the site for the latest products...

Check out the video below if you fancy an ahead of the crowd, sneak preview of the features of the 2016 model year Toyota Hilux:

Try a "Classic"- the Carryboy Workman Gullwing....... - 31/7/15

The Mercedes 300 SL was, and still is, an absolute classic of design. Mostly known as a "Gullwing" those top mounted doors became the defining feature of the car.

Gullwing 4x4AT

On a more practical, and definitely at a more affordable level, 4x4at.com have this super accessible Carryboy Workman hard top canopy with its own gullwing doors available for Ford Ranger, Isuzu Dmax and Toyota Hilux. In this case, however rather than purely for the aesthetic, these top hinged, self lifting, lockable, side doors allow access to the parts of your pick up load bed usually so difficult to access via the rear door. The picture below shows just what's possible...even lighting has been installed ! Whether for a wholly commercial application or not, just having access through the side can make life easy ! The Workman can also be ordered with a solid rear door – making it very secure!

Carryboy Workman Hard Top

Of course if you have the Mercedes Gullwing 300SL, you'd want to keep that secure as well...!!!

Extra stance for your Ford Ranger....! - 30/7/15

A relatively simple product can make a massive impact ! Never more so than with these brand new Ford Ranger 55mm wheel arch extensions (often referred to as fender flares) that are specific to the 4 door double cab. Critically, they allow you to retain your standard fit mud flaps unlike so many other extensions. They are even nicely tapered around the fuel filler flap. Giving 55mm of tyre coverage they're the perfect accompaniment if you are considering new wheels; checkout these 20" Vermont alloys in Gunmetal black by clicking here!

Ford Ranger 55mm wheel arch extensions

The wheel arch extensions are available either body coloured or, as shown here, in the dark charcoal grey that Ford themselves use for their Widtrak Sportsbar. They're easy fit and start at only £322.80 a set. So Wildtrak or not, these arches just give a really purposeful stance to your Ranger....Is yours due a birthday ?

Below is one of the first images we've seen of the new model Nissan Navara model NP300.

The Nissan Navara joins a number of new models from other manufacturers....We'll be supplying accessories for Mitsubishi L200, Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger and VW Amarok.

New Navara NP300 4x4AT

All of these competitor pickup trucks, just like the Navara NP300, are very much more car like than ever before and have the features one normally associates with the executive sector. Yet they have the immeasurable advantage of amazing 4x4 off road ability, surefootedness in inclement weather, not to mention just great old fashioned load lugging ability!

Couple these with carefully selected products from our range of 4x4 accessories, particularly our enormous selection of hard truck top canopies...it makes any one of these vehicles a compelling proposition.

Increase of pickup truck sales according to SMMT figures - 7/7/15

Toyota Hilux 4x4AT

It's great to know we're working in a market sector that's doing well! Latest SMMT figures show that pickup truck registrations were up over 14.5% year on year (2013-14). Across the most popular vehicles such as Ford Ranger, Isuzu Dmax, Mitsubishi L200, Nissan Navara, Toyota Hilux and VW Amarok; over 32,000 vehicles were registered in 2014 with no sign of a let up.

Some people think that the impending end of production of Land Rover's Defender may be having an effect now, but others point out the tax efficiency of these commercial vehicles in so far as VAT and capex regulations are concerned. Possibly the most compelling reason for the massive growth in sales of these vehicles however, is that they are just much more "car-like" now than their predecessors. The original Toyota Hilux bears little resemblance to today's offering and there is an even more advanced one en route to reach these shores in 2016.

Add the kind of accessories that 4x4at.com has become so well respected for and there's certainly no need to go without your creature comforts...Do comment on this blog at: Simonr@nlg.co.uk
