    A couple of things....................
    Interesting cap..............are these aluminum to keep the weight down? I have an AluCab and like the OP have had many different options; aluminum truck cover with bars and RTT, AluCab and slept in the back, I had the Front Runner slim line rack on top for someone who posted that. These racks are IMO the best out there, I have had others as well on different vehicles over the years. Currently, I have removed everything and bought a soft tonneau cover. Back to basics. Really the reason for removing everything, is I am no longer living out West and not really doing any camping. The reasons for the AluCab in the first place.

    Just looked at the site. I could not find a weight are they heavy? I saw they have great static and dynamic load weights but did not see where they listed the weight of the unit.

    I'm funny about caps on a pickup.
    I've never seen one I didn't hate, yet every time I see someone proudly displaying theirs and enjoying it for it's undeniable utility, I'm somehow jealous.
    It's a catch 22 I'm never going to get past.

    Congrats OP. Seriously.
    Pretty pup, btw.

    I have been thinking about it. I heard there was a spray but I have not researched enough. Would love to hear ideas.

    Looks great! I have similar lights in my ARE Overland setup. I am curious if the latches on the windows are closed (not locked) from the outside, can you unlatch them from the inside?

    So @PilotMM mentions in his build thread that he sprayed the interior of his RLD cap with Lizard Skin and it made a huge difference in temperature. I'd be curious if he'd weigh in on what he thinks about it having run it a while now. I wonder if it reduces or eliminates the magnetic aspect of the cap...

    @Dguer006 do you have the switch in the bed? I’m wondering how hard it would be to run a switch to the cab.
