    key words "a while" there are a few things on my list but they will have to wait till next year, I'm pretty good at keeping a budget and really poor at finding time away from work

    If the guy with the SmartCap on a DCLB at Jawbone Canyon this morning sees this, I’m the guy with the van that asked you about it. Thanks for giving me a quick tour. Hope your day out there was fun! This was my first time seeing one up close and the workmanship and detailing look 1st class; at least visually, much better than the AluCab, Tradesman or ARE aluminum caps I’ve seen.

    Anyone who’s not used bed stiffeners seen any spreading between the tailgate and the bed side? I had stiffeners added about two weeks after my cap was installed and I’m noticing a gap at the top, can’t say if it was like that before or not as I just noticed.

    For anyone looking to light the inside of their SmartCap, I highly recommend the Klein 56403 rechargeable worklight. Found it on Amazon for $40, and the magnets on the backside work perfect to stick it to the inside roof panel. Haven't seen too many rechargeable options posted here, but I've been stoked with it so far.

    No, but I can grab one today. Thinking of adding some washers to the stiffeners to pull the bed in a bit.

    Glad to hear. Your table has finally shown up. Let me know when you want to have it installed

    pretty much everything
    Wow, I ordered a table in February from Offroad Alliance and am still waiting with no ETA. Maybe this is a sign that the tables are coming in now? Feeling a bit jealous here.

    These got me. I was just pricing a fiberglass top and the dealer showed me an Adventure SmartCap, and happened to have one in stock. I had not heard of these before, however it was easy for me to like and I decided to buy it. Right now it will be installed on the 12th, I thought about installing it myself, but I don't have a garage for the assembly and don't know how the weather will be (other than cold).

    I like that this comes with installed rails and a 700 lb load capacity. I also like the gullwing side doors. Now I just need to get some Total Chaos bed stiffeners.

    Is the factory bed lighting of any use with these on (does it shin in through the window)? I'm guessing it is not of much use, but as I cannot see for myself yet, figured I'd ask.

    If you're talking about the one at the back top of the cab then it won't do anything. The Gecko light set is what I have and works great:

    I ordered my table 2 weeks ago, the site said ETA 02/2022. So probably they are waiting on shipment. My load bars said 01/2022 though haha.

    Wat de heal

    I was thinking I’d finally be able to use the switch with door ajar and tie in more lights with a secondary switch at the bed. That’s a bit disappointing tbh but I did assume after seeing one ( only started questioning it recently because of zooming new pics posted here)

    Trust me, just buy the Matt Gecko lights. The install is easy and they work way better than the light from the back of the cab.
