    Thanks so much for sharing your story, Tony. It's easy to get caught up in life and forget to slow down for those moments.

    Also love that sleek shell. Peoblem for me is I keep my fuel cans and some stuff up at the front under my tonneau cover and have the tailgate portion free with the bed extender for groceries and stuff. The only way to usefully access the front with a shell seems to be that bloody 5k SmartCap..

    Most shell manufacturers have an option for 'windoors' on one or more of their models. Smartcap isn't the only one.
    Windoors will definitely be a required feature when I'm ready to get a shell.

    Not sure. I just did a google images search for "truck shell windoor," but I know I've seen the option on most popular brands' websites. ARE, Leer, Snugtop, etc

    Ah gotcha. I searched around Leer models but kept ending up looking at commercial caps for the windoor option but I'll keep looking. Cheers!

    I keep everything I can in storage containers so I can grab what I need quickly. I find myself waiting until the morning of to pack, so that's the best way for me to get moving. I use two different sizes of the Plano Sportsman, as well as Frontrunner Wolf Packs.

    Has anyone found a container that will hold a skottle?

    Access to the clear containers situated in the front of the bed are not a problem for me. The wire shelf is two feet deep. That puts the back of the container two feet closer to you in a bed that is only five feet long. I can sit on the tailgate and easily reach every container in the bed. Same for the double-stacked shelf in the rear seat area of the cab. Net/Net, MUCH more efficient use of the available space. I do not need windoors to get to the stuff in front. It's just not that far to reach in there to grab a front container and slide it off the shelf and across the containers in the rear part of the bed. A folding table makes a nice platform to put them on when you need to rummage through one. Windoors are nice and offer great utility and access, but I prefer the look of the frameless window. Lots of people on this forum swear by them though.

    You're right, I'd much rather the look of the frameless window than a windoor..looks more like sleek SUV than truck addition. I don't have any reason to switch from the tonneau cover just yet so I have time to sort my options out.
