    @tdn008 they are 285/75-17, so they are basically 34’s

    Anyone have a SmartCap EVO C? I'd be interested in seeing some real world photos.

    The commercial RSI caps are very nice as well. Let me see if we can get any pictures.

    I haven’t done any hard measurements or anything but when you put the two rooflines are eye level the top of the cab sits pretty even with the top of the canopy. Maybe someone else can speak more on the matter?

    Custom paint matching is not currently being offered. We'll update everyone should RSI start offering the color matching.


    The height between the cab and the cap are pretty close. We don't have one at the shop right now so we can't get an exact measurement, but it's likely an inch or less.

    Thanks for the update. Any chance you can post some EVO C pics? I'm guessing they're available in Black?

    So I basically replaced all the hardware that came with the prinsu rack with these parts:

    (8) Square Weld Nuts - DIN 928
    8mm Metric Thread, M8 - 1.25mm Pitch

    (8) 3/8" x 1" Flat washer (stainless steel)

    (8) M8 Split lock washer

    (8) M8-1.25 x 20mm hex bolt ( a bolt slightly less than 20mm length would work better)

    I had to expand the holes on the feet of the prinsu rack where the bolts fit through by about 1-2 mm to fit the new bolts. I just used a drill bit that was slightly wider then the original holes on the feet.

    I got off work late today, but this weekend I will post a few more pics for you guys. If you guys need clarification feel free to ask.

    looks ok, but for that sort of money, I would have bought a 4Runner.

    @SRBenjamin not an apples to apples comparison but yes quite spendy (I don’t think any RSi owner will disagree that :rofl:)

    I like 4-runners, but just try to rip the back off of one and turn it into a truck...
    And I agree that no-one is going to argue this cap wasn't spendy, but if you price out other major brand caps with all the same options (gull wing doors, rack rails, etc.) you're within a few hundred bucks of the Smartcap... AND you still have to put up with fiberglass, unless you go Tradesman, RLD or Alu-cab and then you're still in the same ballpark as far as $$.

    I get it, but most people I know never remove the caps, as to use the bed. I thought I was getting hosed when I payed $1329. for a Diamondback cover, but $4000.
    seems excessive. As long as your happy, cool.
