Unless you’re a real redneck McGiver, using plywood and packaging tape for a makeshift Can-am Defender roof just ain’t gonna cut it. And yes, Wal-Mart has those 9’ porch umbrellas on sale for $19.99 if you don’t mind looking like Mary Poppins when you roll up. For the more serious side-by-side riders, however, a proper Can-am Defender top will provide heaps of benefits — from blocking rain and snow to keeping your dome shielded from falling branches and rocks. But with so many UTV roofs out there for the Can-am Defender, it can be hard to know where to start. The Can-am Defender metal roofs like those by Battle Armor and Rage won’t work with SuperATV rear windows, whereas the OEM Can-am Defender roof will. Sure you can cut the roof and make other alterations to fit the windshield, but after paying so much for an aftermarket UTV roof this can be quite frustrating. Some people like the look of the OEM roof as well, saying that the front of Battle Armor roofs look like a hat brim and Rage roofs don’t look clean. However, this overhanging brim comes in handy if you’re going to install a light bar.
Other Can-Am Defender hard top roofs like Audio Formz have built-in sound systems, and roofs from UTV firms such as SuperATV, Quack Rack, FTD Cab, and Probox also have differentiating features that set them apart from the rest and attract specific niche markets. But what makes some roofs good for some riders — such as the bulkiness of the Fortress roof — will act as detractors for other riders. Alternatively, if you have the knowledge, skill, and equipment, you could attempt to fab up your own custom roof out of 1/10” thick aluminum diamond plate. Just go to a metal fab place and have a piece cut to fit 57 1/3” by 80” then use a 2x6 skewed to the trailer to bend it. But regardless of what type of roof you choose to go with, if you’re trailering your side-by-side for long distances, make sure to strap it down lest it take off from the wind and fly away. A nice hack we like to implement when towing is to use the machine’s winch instead of that 5th strap on your trailer — it is a simple solution and holds way better! So don’t wait and get your new Can-am Defender roof today!
