    That's a pretty good price w/those extras.I paid just over $1300 installed for my CX w/neither of those options.On the A.R.E. site they did have a printable coupon for free folddown slider.They are quality caps,& Leer's are also.I have owned both & liked both,but have an A.R.E. dealer closer.I have also had a Leonard cap,it served it's purpose,but the quality wasn't like the A.R.E. or Leer.

    Nope I shove that 14footer in the bed and strap her down.

    I just recently welded up a trailer for it. Way way faster and easier on my back!!

    The interior liner is basically just carpeted interior surfaces (sides, around the windows, and ceiling).

    Thanks, guys. I am looking into a cap. I think the ARE has the only one with the walk-in rear door. And there's a dealer close by.

    I might have a Truxedo vinyl bed cover for sale soon. :~)
