    yep! Those corners! I went mastic the first time around, noticed there was a bit of weeping after a pressure wash…. Shined light and turns out the hole is awkwardly big. I didn’t want to use pookie, as that shit gets everywhere and the truck bed is already “setup”…. Didn’t want to bother with taking everything out. Mastic has done the trick for me. No water after pressure washes.

    This leak point, and the taillight pigtails being sent wrong were my only issues with the cap. Everything has been fixed and I can’t imagine NOT having the cap, now. Very happy with how everything works. Especially the table

    Appreciate the input, going to see what I can do this evening and this weekend. Getting some more rain today and throughout the week and maybe into the weekend so I should have some way to regularly check it any progress I make.

    I was hoping that my efforts prior to receiving the cap would prevent me from getting this headache but that wasn't the case lol.

    Feel pretty fortunate to have stumbled across the RSI smart cap while looking at cap options... never liked caps that much but happened to find a Sport in stock locally on Monday. Loaded it up and installed it at home same day. Definitely helped to have a few hands to raise up and install, but solo assembly was no prob. Still working on getting fly rod holder and awning setup, but so far couldn't be happier.

    Later today I'll be working on some black 80/20 as tent support crossbars... Rod holder will rest on those with rubber bushings to allow for bed/cab flex but keep it from bouncing. So far so good with this cap... love the look.

    One note with setup- the passenger side cap windows would open up so fast and basically hit the rod holder and lights I have mounted below... I took off one of the struts and the window now opens slowly and holds level with rod holder now- I'm sure I may have to replace the struts a bit earlier now, but its nice that its not banging on anything in use.

    Also- the branding stickers come off very easily if you don't like the "smart cap" text on the cap.

    Question: how do you guys clean the front cap window and back cab window? Any “reach” tool recommendations? My hands don’t fit in the space between the cap and the cab.

    Loosen up the 3 clamps on each side of the rail on the bed and slide the cap toward the tailgate a few inches to get in there.

    With mine snugged up against the cab it doesn’t get too dirty, what dirt that is there isn’t easy to see from the drivers seat, so for the most part I don’t worry about it.

    I triple fold a beach towel and work it in between the cab and the cap. Drag it out and repeat. It seems to work well enough. I have a treated water system so I don't get nearly as much hard water residue on my windows.

    Quick question for everyone with an RSi cap, would you be interested in a MOLLE panel for the top that attaches where the table supports would (6 nuts)?

    Got a buddy with a plasma cutting table and we were kicking around the idea. No idea on the price but trying to see if it was something worth running with.

    Absolutely.
    I was actually going to suggest it to a local company in my area

    Depending how much it will cost. But that would be an awesome idea!

    Nice setup! Thanks for the pics! Can't wait until my cap arrives, it's been a long wait.
