    Nice. These Ranch toppers seem like a good value.

    For my uses I've never needed side access so sliders are fine for me. I store everything under the platform so I can only access it from the back anyways. The only time I’ve even used the sliders is when I put my dog in the back I’ll crack both sides open so he gets some fresh air and breeze.

    Not on an ARE cap, but on my Ranch it's roughly the same as the cab of the truck.

    My Yakima racks were adjustable so it really didn't matter how far apart they were.

    I found a rack on CL but I don’t want to use the Yakima racks, trying to limit vehicle height... so I’m looking at the feasibility of creating/copying a low profile mount for the rack

    Looks good! That may be the v-series, I think the difference is the windows. There may be a plaque on the inside of the cap that says the model (my cx has one there along with the color it was painted from the factory)

    Just checked and saw that it is indeed a V series. Just super excited to add a drawer system and take it out camping.

    But first Im going to weatherproof the crap out of it. Already seeing water at the corners.

    The front is the biggest culprit. The bed rail caps are higher than the front bed wall which creates hard to seal spots at each front corner. Also the caps don’t overhang the front like they do on the sides.

    Currently running this shell, just bought it this week:

    ...but also have this shell, which came on the truck when I bought it:
    91073B82-1F2F-40BA-8BC6-D39E1CD125A6.jpg

    Which one looks better? I definitely like the gray one a lot for camping, and got a great deal on it. Gonna sell off the paint matched one to free up cash for other ventures.

    I like the gray one, more room for stuff and moving around inside. What wheels are you running, I like those?
