    Everything that i have done so starting first with the shell, westin sportsman front grill,PIAA fog lights, westin rear light guards, dee-zee side steps, Nice upgradred rims and tires, dvd player,12 inch sub, Halo headlights, K&n Cold air intake, bed mat......
    So i bought a shell for my 07 taco dble cab long bed... And my lady thinks it looks retarded!! In my opinion i think it looks good.. i can carry stuff back there when its snowing... not only that i am able to put stuff in the back and not worry about someone walking along and just taking something out of it. I am keeping it regardless i just wanted to know other opinions on how you guys think they look??

    Does your truck look BETTER without it??? IMO YES!!! Does it look BAD with it? IMO NO!!! It does come in extremely handy though.

    ^^just look in his gallery. I am not a fan of the double cab long bed to begin with, looks just too long for a midsize truck.....but that being said, I think it looks good. Function over looks.

    It makes the most sense, I hate when people use the bed of my truck as a garbage can!

    I have a Century Cap on my 2009 short bed Tacoma. First cap on a pick up I have had. I like it, keeps things nice and dry, could camp in there if needed to.

    Personally, I think it makes the truck look longer, and I'm not a huge fan of long trucks. But it's your decision, whatever makes you happy bro ;)

    If I had the money I would get a cap for my truck. Would keep the pup dry on wet days and cool on hot days and warm on cold days. Plus I can keep stuff back there without someone easily taking it.

    Looks good!!!

    I was just looking at fabric tops. I only have found one and it was close to $700. Are they seriously that much, for just a fabric top and a frame? Anyone know of one thats a lot less expensive?

    My girl said I look like an exterminator with my cap.. She said it used to look badass but not so much anymore.. With that said, Screw her!! I love my cap and its is very very handy for when I need to keep my fishing and hunnting gear safe and dry.. Best money I've spent so far on my truck.. I think it looks good too.. Your truck looks sweet man also.. Good Call!!
