    not a tacoma, a much older vehicle, but shows how a bed can flex when off roading. im betting the tacoma beds dont flex as much, this is more an exaggerated example.

    Has anyone repainted their SmartCap? I'm not sure whether they're powder coated or painted at the factory, just wondering if anyone has painted one themselves or seen one that's not black or white?

    Curious to see what a paint matched SC looks like.

    I know, I know, it's a Jeep... But our customer repainted his cap grey to match the grey on his Gladiator. The caps are painted so you could definitely have them re-painted.

    I just spent more than half of my day siliconing every seam on the outside of the cap.
    Also, I noticed a small hole in the rail closest to my bed cab, underneath it towards the driver's side. It was leaking quite a lot, so I added some waterproof tape over it.
    Next, I removed the white tabs that are around the inside of the windows when you open them, they looked to me like it was leaking so I decided to pull the 3 on the top out and the two on the sides and cleaned them, siliconed around them and then re-inserted them.

    If my caps leaks after what I did to it over my weekend, IDK wtf I missed. But I will located the leak and try and fix it. Hoping I have actually sealed this cap now.

    Honestly the Gladiator would look siiiick as a regular cab. Sure it's still a Chrysler, but it'd look cool which must be the only thing Jeep/Ram owners give a cuss about.

    Yes. I agree. told them about my leaks. They said I could take the entire thing apart and apply new foam.
    they just don’t seem to really be bothered by the issues I’ve reported or anything.

    Easy to not care when you're backordered into next century. Not like complaints will hurt sales any time soon...

    They take forever to respond and responses have been vague. they don’t even seem to know what’s going.

    For anyone thinking of getting one just an FYI. Had I to do it over again I would not have spent the money on this thing. It’s nice looks cool but I can see so many future issues that I will probably have to fix on my own. Customer service at RSI does indeed suck. Don’t spend all your money on one just yet. The biggest issue being the thing is a joke for being water tight...pretty much the only reason I got it in the first place.

    i havent seen too many other caps other than the fiberglass ones.

    id like a cap to support the weight of a rtt without fear of cracking. maybe put some kayaks up there at some point too.

    a gfc is still on my list, but thats twice the price of a rsi

    I know the challenges of being in AK and getting outside help. There's a dude in Anchorage with one on his Taco and I've been wanting to put hands on to see before I order (or not) but I haven't caught up with them yet. Are you having issues just ordering and shipping to AK or just general questions like are the locks gonna freeze up here?

    I ordered one several months ago. Was told initially it’s be 7-10 days. After several weeks I emailed them and they say it’d be another 3 weeks. A month later msgd them again and they said another 3 weeks but not sure if I’d get one this time around...that’s basically the sum of it. I paid in full, I just don’t like the thought of 4K floating out there and they can’t even tell me when I’ll receive the cap.

    Damn that sucks yours is leaking. I've tested mine a bunch since seeing some other issues people have had and I'm luckily not having the same issues with water intrusion.

    Direct from RSi or another vendor? @OffroadAlliance.com has done a good job on the thread of updating when caps will be in as well as backorder timing. They've been backordered for a while now and I had to wait 2+ months to get mine.
