    Do any of you have a different coloured cap on your truck? I have a black taco and am looking at purchasing a white canopy (used) for it.
    Do you think it would look dumb? If you have a pic of yours, that would be great. No luck finding any as of yet. Thanks.

    Thanks. That is an option. Cap is only going to run me $200.

    2010 Silver dbl cab LB 4x4 It's Purdy too!
    LT265/70/17 BFG A/T's, Disabled Seat Belt Buzzer, Black and Gray Covercraft Seat Covers front and rear, Matching SnugTop Supersport Canopy, undercoat, bed mat, window vent shades. Black Weathertech Liners. Trans TSB, Rear Spring TSB Installed.

    I just purchased a black Snugtop canopy about 2 weeks ago now. I own a silver double cab. After I got it home I made a call to my local Maaco paint shop. Dropped off the canopy and my tailgate (scratched with a moving dolly the day before picking up the canopy). Anyway, they had the canopy 2 days. Color matched my silver Taco great. Back on the truck and happy as a clam. This is the second time I have done this. I had a 02 Ford Supercrew (dark blue) and bought a white canopy. Again, paint matched perfectly. Savings on the Snugtop 650.00 purchase price + 250.00 to paint. New price on this particular canopy would have been 2000.00 + tax = 2200.00. So 900 bucks is a dang good price.
    As to your question about white on black, yeah it wouldn't look great. Just my thoughts. Ken:cool:
