    It looks like the mounting hardware on the EVOa panels are the same so these leaves the possibility of mix and match maybe or if you break the glass you could go solid as a replacement.

    Definitely seems logical especially if you know you are going to run a full bin. Looks super clean :thumbsup:

    Plenty of room for everything with an RSI cap!

    But does it come with a personal pair of Vermont mittens?

    I want to know how he got the latches open with mittens:D


    Anyone notice the different latch orientation on the side hatches so they don't fill with water and freeze...still have horizontal on the back though.

    How bright does it seem in the bed with the sides closed? That's one concern I have without the windows.

    Has anyone come up with an interesting way to use the threaded holes on the underside of the roof supports that are meant to hold the tracks for the optional collapsible table? I’ve been trying to think of a good mod that would come in handy but short of hanging a cargo net from them I haven’t thought of anything yet.

    It seems fine to me, but I have the bed light package, and I plan on putting one or two magnetic lights on the inside of it.

    So far I just have SS eye bolts in the threaded holes. Use them for now to hold assorted bungee cords.

    Happy Friday!

    We are down to the last few in stock RSI Evo Adventure series caps for the 5ft beds. These caps are shipping out within just a few days from time of order. The next batch of available RSI Evo Sports will be available in early March.

    If there's anything we can do to help, let us know!

    Do you know if they will be selling the solid and glass panels as a stand alone replacement piece down the road?

    I have the EVOa on order now but would be nice to swap it out later if I change my mind or maybe only want a window on one side.

    wow you see this rsi cap is all over social media. It seems very overpriced for what it actually is. I think ill rough it and stick with my softtopper

    I’m replacing my softopper for the RSi

    I guess the cost is subjective. Go price out similar optioned fiberglass shells and it’s in the same range.

    The softopper is not a good option for me in harsh cold and snow, the back panel gets covered in road grime and scratches easily when you try to clean it. Ultimately mine cracked.

    Softopper is also not a good option for securing gear.

    The use case for each, hard and soft shell, is so different it’s just comparing apples to oranges.

    ^^ hands down the softtopper was the best add on i made.... it folds down when needed, but its up most of the time to keeps my dogs and gear somewhat safe(gears in locked boxes, dogs are in crates). but it keeps them out of sight. .. I just couldnt see totally removing a hardtop cap when needing to load the bed with wood/dirt/mulch/motorcycle. i can simply fold it down.

    your right it is apples to oranges.. But imo this topper doesnt even flow with the tacoma's body lines

    We have inquired with RSI to whether or not they will be offering replacement panels/windows so people could potentially swap them out. We'll update everyone once we have more info!

    @OffroadAlliance.com - Is it possible to see one of these in the flesh? I am on the West Coast (NorCal). Do you have any users in these parts who may be willing to show their cap off if there are no sales locations?

    - I see addresses in TX and MA in your sig. - An I also see an address pop-up in maps in Nevada (not too far from me), but it seems residential... (maybe a map error).
    Thank you!

    No sales locations that we have at least in CA. We've got a few of folks in your area that have them on Superduties and Gladiators. We'll see what we can do. In the interim, keep your eye out you might just see one running around.
