Got a shell









How much do you think is a good price for the shell?

Got lucky and found mine for $350, you could tell it's been used but it still looks good!

Yours looks much better than mine. I'd pay 750-1000 maybe.

You did well. Mine came with a similar-looking Snug Top, and yeah, the double-tinting was a bit of a safety hazard when backing and at night, I felt.

Check out my cheap backup light mod writeup (link in sig), if you are interested. It helps a lot when backing up in the dark.

Yeah, i'll def. be looking into adding some lights. I like on the shell, that it has a slider window on the front, so I can lock the back and slide in from the truck.

Yep craigslist. I posted an ad wanting a silver shell and had no luck, then after I had forgotten about the ad, i got a response asking if I hadn't seen his ad. I didn't see it because it was in the cars and trucks section and not the auto parts section

I can't even imagine the logistics of trying to get that thing shipped here to Houston.

Looking good man! Your color match is better than mine. Mines faded over the years quicker than the truck.

Still looks great though. What size tires you running? I have to get an aal or some shackles, because before the shell it was level, now its a inch low in the back. So I think I'll raise the billies to 2.5" and add 1.5'' to the rear.

Topper looks good...

Your leaf springs are defiantly worn out. Time to get an OME suspension.

Adding a leaf or shackles is just a band-aid. I would consider replacing the leafs.
