    i got a killer deal on this cap a few months ago. i like having it to keep stuff dry and protected but its been a few months and im still not entirely sold on keeping it. its not really like me to ask anyones opinion on stuff like this but i really am having a hard time deciding wether i like it or not. i was thinking of getting a bakflip cover instead. what do you guys think?

    I think it looks better with out the cap in your case, however the usefullness usually out weighs the look. Imo, it may be the cap style that throws it off a bit. good luck 00

    A cap is real useful, but it makes your truck look like a big station wagon.
    So just for looks; no cap.
