    I have been looking for a cap for my truck lately and came across an A.R.E. Z-Series for my long bed on craigslist. It already has the rack on top that I want but it is white, so I will have to get it painted. The seller is willing to take $600 for it, is that a deal? I dont know how much A.R.E. Caps cost new, but I do know that the racks are about $300. Any info would be appreciated.

    Sean, if the cap is on Craigslist in Norfolk I reported it but they keep relisting it. They will bait you into a bad neighborhood with your cash. Has you ever spoken to the seller or just emails from the Blackberry? If this is the same one which is sounds like it is stay away.

    Did you email about this cap before? I see you have a white sport like in the picture. Hmmm. Doesnt seem like that good of a deal, but I sure don't want to drive 5 hrs to just get robbed. I've heard of that happening. Well thanks for the heads up.

    I did exchange emails with a person but they refused to provide contact phone info, then wanted to arrange a meet via email. The area in Norfolk is a very high crime area.

    Brand new they are expensive, if you can buy it for 600.00 or maybe offer him 500.00 and have it painted to match for another 300.00. You will still be in good shape. Trust me, mine was not cheap. The "Z" series is ARE's top of the line. They start at 1600 and up new. I have had mine for several months and really like it. Depending on the condition I would purchase it and have it painted to match. Ask all the important questions, this seems like a really low price hmmmmm....Good luck!

    Ok, Sounds like we are talking about the same person. I will see if I can get a phone number out of them out of curiosity, but it seems fishy and definately not comfortable driving long distance for it. Thanks.

    Hey Bud,

    I am not telling you what to do, but if it were me, I would skip this deal and not look back. If they can't or won't provide a phone number, I smell a scam and something just does not sound right.

    I know you did not ask, I am just sayin... :cool:

    Sean, any update on the Cap? I received a bunch of emails, but the person would not give me a contact number, claimed their name was Natalie.

    Same here. Natalie won't give her phone number. Bummer thought I finally found a deal on a nice cap.
