    I think those helper springs should help. It was suggested to me as well but I ended up installing sumo springs bumpstops.

    here’s my shell installed to save the CA DMV weight fee (currently $140 extra on the yearly CA registration). Inspected and passed.
    Bye bye commercial plate.

    Do you only need the shell?

    What is the process?

    Thx

    Ranch Fusion I bought off craigslist. Glad I saw this thread it reminded me I’ve been meaning to get a new key made for it for like a year now. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow...

    All you need is:

    shell installed
    Pink slip
    Get inspected from Dmv
    Fill out paperwork
    Swap plates
    Doesn’t cost you a dime

    WTH??!! I just noticed this “commercial” fee crap on my sons ‘19, then on my ‘18! Dont even know if the Govt crooks here just added it or not. Not exactly sure how a mid-size truck well under 5000# qualifies as commercial or how adding a shell relieves you of the fee, but hell, I’m game!

    Kind of find it funny that with all that inspecting, nobody commented on your tires sticking out a foot past your fenders? Haha. Love it

    Yep, check reply #7711 in this thread. I looked for 6-8 months. Finally found the style I wanted and had it painted. $600 for the cap and nearly $600 for the custom paint. Looks great and very happy with the work. Was hoping to find one that already matched for around $1000.

    Thanks! Just working on making it feel like a cabin on the inside now :) Definitely roomier than I expected.

    Finally got mine on. Was very skeptical of the look of the OTR (line-x) and there was little to no pictures I could find. Dealer messed up my quote and didn’t include it in the price, but luckily they honored it and I wanted to be a bit different. ARE CX Evolve.6B5AFCBE-8173-4309-A6B2-57C23564E2AA.jpg

    Looking for options on how and where to source supplies to reseal the windows on my aging Century topper. All the rubber gasket type material has hardened over the years. There’s a few camper stores Ima hit up in the tricounty area next time I’m over there unless I can come up with an easier/cheaper option.
