    Every year i take my camper shell on and off about 3 or 4 times. I can never decide which looks better though. Can you help me out here?

    Looks good. I only take it off if I need more room. Keeps the bed cleaner(no one can throw shit in it), can sleep in the bed(camping/drunk/etc), easier to lock up tools.

    i had one on my truck for about 7 months just sold it to a member on here. I tell you what i forgot how mean my truck looked without it. It had its pros and cons but to me more cons then pros. I think i would have liked it better with cargo rails on the top of it.

    Having a shell just for looks seems pointless. If you don't need it, sell it and put the money toward something else. It's a Tacoma, it'll look sexy regardless. :D

    i personally like the look of our trucks significantly lifted with camper shells, but toolboxes are good :thumbsup: probably give you better mileage than having a shell too, especially if you ever drive with the tailgate down
