    Check out Leer or ARE. Both are quality brands available on the east coast. Check out their respective websites for available styles. I have an ARE MX Series on my short bed, check out my pictures. Welcome from another Masshole :D

    Did you notice a change in your mileage when you put the shell on the truck?

    Also: I vot for the Leer 100 XL because it's beautiful

    Hehe none whatsoever. I had mine installed by the dealer right from day one. Never driven with it off.

    That said, I have read (and understand it to be true) on the forums that the reduced wind drag by a more aerodynamic profile is negated by the added weight of a shell. So there really neither a benefit nor a drawback.

    If you're looking to increase mileage, I would suggest just getting a light weight tonneau cover. You might see some slight improvement in highway MPG.

    My MPG stayed exactly the same when I added the cap

    I just had an ARE Z Series installed last Friday. MGM color, crank out windows, front slider/flip down, clothes hanger, carpeted and LED light inside.

    2011 DBL cab. It looks good and fits good. I hope my Lab can get enough air with those tiny little crank outs.................

    I've had Leer in the past with much happiness so will see how this goes!!

    Edit to add: I could post up a couple pics tomorrow if you want....................
