Introducing our enhanced 78 Roof Conversion by Alu-Cab – the ultimate upgrade for your Toyota Troop Carrier! 

The Alu-Cab Hercules Roof Conversion is an innovative system designed to maximize the utility and versatility of your vehicle’s roof space. Engineered with precision and crafted with durability in mind, the Hercules Roof Conversion redefines the concept of adventure and functionality on the road.

Constructed from high-quality aluminum and reinforced with robust hardware, the Hercules Roof Conversion is built to withstand the rigors of off-road exploration and everyday use. Its sleek and aerodynamic design not only enhances the aesthetics of your vehicle but also reduces wind resistance for improved fuel efficiency.


We can’t think of a more capable overland solution for two of the most capable overland vehicles. While our Icarus conversion kits are designed solely for Land Rover Defender owners, the Hercules Roof Conversion is designed to suit Toyota Land Cruiser Troopy models – 75 & 78 series.

No matter which of these iconic vehicles you own, the conversion is available in kit form and can be shipped to any corner of the globe. The job takes about 3-4 days to complete, and once done, you’ll then have access (via an internal roof opening) to your tent, your clothes, your cupboards and your kitchen – all in one supremely capable and compact package.


The roof conversion does away with having to climb up and down ladders, and also frees up packing space where you now have the option of mounting a full-size roof-rack. Bear in mind, however, that packing heavy items on top of your vehicle’s roof will affect how easy it is to open, so some experimenting will be needed to determine what works for you.

Otherwise, the roof takes seconds to unlatch and open, and thanks to the flip-up bed and mattress, you not only have access to your clothing and cupboards, you also get to stand upright while changing. Lastly, the roof can be closed with all your bedding inside, which means you never have to deal with stuffing away a sleeping bag, and you don’t have to find packing space for your duvet and pillows. Provided your bedding is relatively neat and flat, it’s all stored up top and is just a latch-and-flip away.

Overlanding has never been so easy, so convenient, and so unbelievably capable. It’s the ultimate overland solution for two ultimate overland vehicles.


The load rating for the cargo rails on the roof is 50kg. It is important to note that where the load is located on the roof, will determine how easy or difficult it is to open the tent.
It is always suggested to shift heavier loads towards the front of the tent, and much lighter loads, like a solar panel, to the rear.
