    Hey guys. Just bought me a camper shell. Should I vinyl wrap it black or white? Looking for some info, Im leaning towards black but Im not 100%
    side note thats not my truck pictured, I have a 2015 white access cab.
    the camper shell is currently silver streak color

    It did look good on Randy's truck also but all white also looks good too. That looks like a really nice shell. What brand is it?

    Oh man so jealous right now I really want a z-series. You can go to the local ARE dealer and order the window then put it in yourself it is really simple. Just bolts in from the inside and get the seal as well.

    Damn that is almost the cost of a new one. @Blackout14 pointed me in the direction of the ARE dealer up in PA where he got his as that dealer is a good 600 bucks cheaper than the one near me. Most of the windows these cap manufacturers use are pretty std. I bet you could find one with enough google time. I don't think I'll go back to a silver cap, my old one was silver and I like the contrast of the black better. I felt like with having a DCLB then the silver cap it was just too much silver. Now some colors look so much better with a matching cap vs the 2 tone look. You having a white truck lends itself to 2 tone looking really good as well.

    Currently my truck is naked without the cap and all my gear I carry in the bed so it looks weird. My cap is getting reworked while it is off. Taking out my side windows resealing them, resealing the roof tracks and putting some on the inside (@Subway4X4 idea), carpet the inside, ordering a folding front sliding window, and toying with the idea of vinyl wrapping it in either a matte or satin black. I am also going to order the KBVoodoo bed side caps for when it goes back on.

    Whatever Mincey's grafics in Durham has idk. My friend knows him so I will be calling him and inquiring about pricing and brands but I am pretty sure he uses 3m. When the cap goes back on the back window will get tinted to 20% and the sides to 5% I would look into tinting as the factory tint isn't all that dark and someone can see in pretty easy. I think a less shiny look may look a little better. Not sure how the tint will work as my windows have screens and i don't want to take the screens out to have them tint it correctly from the inside but tinting the outside doesn't last very long, that's what I've been told by a couple of guys who tint.

    There is a member on here that works at a tint shop in gboro I believe, or somewhere in the triad.

    After having both a black cap and a white cap I say wrap it white! I loooove having it all one color. Just flows so well, and it's broken up by the other black things on my truck. Black would also look good, so really no matter what it'd look bad ass.
