1) All models require plastic wellside caps along the side of the wellside to be removed.
2) It is a requirement from Ford that any 2022 Ranger fitted with a canopy must also have a 'J-Brace' strengthening kit installed. The J-Brace kits are supplied by Ford and need to be installed by your Ford Dealer prior to fitment of the canopy for the warranty on the vehicle to be valid. Click here for more info.
Traditionally, ute canopies are constructed with fibreglass or ABS plastic. The Utemaster Centurion Canopy is constructed with Aluminium which gives it greater strength.
Because it is so strong, we can maximise access through full-width doors without compromising on the structural integrity of the canopy.
This product has been designed and manufactured in New Zealand at Utemaster's state of the art facility and focuses on three key features: Access, Strength & Security.

Finding it hard to reach your tools and equipment through small canopy windows?
Wasting time and feel frustrated when trying to access your gear?
The Utemaster Centurion Canopy features full-width doors that give you access to your gear the whole way down each side. There is no obstruction along the top edge of your tub meaning you can easily reach over and pull your gear out through the side door opening.
We were recently asked: “What are they like keeping the rain out when open ???? the worst part of my canopy is all the water tracks straight inside with wings open…”
That's so frustrating! We can only imagine how many tradespeople and recreationists out their struggle with this over the winter periods. Not only does it damage your gear inside, but it also delays progress on a job site.
We thought we'd share a video of the Utemaster Aluminium Canopy being water-tested during the design/ development phase a few months back - as you can see the built-in rain channels send any water landing on the canopy away for the inside of your tub.
Losing your tools and equipment due to a break-in is not only lost money - this can also have an impact on the time and productivity of the job you are working on.
Concealed security latches mean each door is locked on both sides, making it hard to pry open.
It's the details that make all the difference in creating a productive Ute setup...
...The Centurion Canopy™ doors now feature newly designed lock catches.
The catches provide a quieter opening/closing action along with additional security. They are also easier to adjust so you can get to your gear with ease, every time!
As an optional extra, you can purchase a Central Locking accessory for the Centurion Canopy.
This allows you to lock the canopy using the factory vehicle key remote.
Please Note: Your Canopy can be locked manually using the supplied key. The Central Locking is an optional upgrade accessory.
For those who like to bring their furry friends along for the ride, we offer the Dog Vent Kit.
This accessory provides ventilation and fresh air for your canine companion, ensuring their comfort and safety while on the road.
The Dog Vent Kit is easy to install and is fitted to both doors of the canopy for ultimate airflow. The doors can still be locked with the dog vent kit applied which means the gear on the inside is still safe and secure.
Fibreglass or ABS canopies can easily crack under stress.
Despite being lightweight, if engineered correctly aluminium can achieve a very high strength-to-weight ratio and withstand a significant amount of weight and stress without breaking.
This means you can carry much heavier loads than you ever could on a fibreglass or ABS canopy, without going over your Gross Vehicle Mass rating.
When you purchase a Centurion Canopy™ you are investing in quality gear.
The concealed extrusion hinge runs the full length of the door, matches the Canopy colour and eliminates fasteners piercing the body.
This significantly reduces water ingress and improves the longevity of the product.
The Cantilever Rack is a seriously robust optional extra for the Aluminium Canopy with a 200kg load rating.
All utes are designed to flex in between the wellside and the cab. This can be problematic for a traditional roof rack setup that is mounted to both the cab and the canopy because it can cause damage while the flex occurs.
The Cantilever Roof Rack extends over the cab making it completely independent and eliminates the risk of damage to the cab!
The Utemaster Centurion Canopy is compatible with a huge range of accessories so you can spec it to your lifestyle.

Struggling to lift a kayak, ladder or trade material onto the roof of your vehicle?
The Rear Ladder Roller is an optional accessory that fits between each side of the Cantilever Roof Rack.
This makes it easier to slide heavy objects onto the rack from the rear of the vehicle.
Powdercoating Black or White: The Aluminium Canopy comes standard in either Black or White powdercoat finish. The powder coating process is carried out in-house using our state of the art powder coating booth and provides a durable finish.
Because there is a large flat surface area on the sides and rear, and no glass the Aluminium Canopy is an ideal platform for signwriting to show off your company brand.
Looking at upgrading your ute in the near future? Have you ever tried re-selling a ute after removing a fibreglass to ABS plastic Canopy?
The Centurion Aluminium Canopy is fixed to the wellside using existing factory mounting holes. This means no damage to the wellside of your ute when the canopy is removed.
