    Being a DC - Short Bed, the extra headroom is welcomed and the extra height of the shell prevents the bow of my canoes from hitting the truck cab roof!

    Yeah I searched and did find some great ideas but thought the use of an integrated hook/eye on four corners of the roof would be a quicker, easier clean way to hook it up.

    Interesting about the seals... I'm almost 100% going with the Leer. XR or the 100RCC. Love the idea of a roof top tent but wow between the extra money for the shell and then the tent.... That's some coin.

    Very nice! Looks sick! Are side sliders an option with the Z series? I need lots of airflow for the puppy.

    Yes they do have sliding side windows as an option, but the slider option is not recessed (sticks out about 1/4"). This one was $2k with the paint. The sliding window option was about $200 cheaper if I remeber right. Here are some better pics.

    Can someone please help me. I have a snugtop camper I bought used. It has the third brake light and also a dome light inside with a switch you can turn on and off. It has wires hanging down the left side of the camper towards the drivers side tail light. Anyone know how to connect these so they work? Here's some pictures for reference.

    nice. Gives me a good idea what mine would look like. Im getting a used one today. It's maroon though. I'm going to have to derp it until I have enough money to do it the right way. Most likely it would stay derp'd as long as it looks good.:)

    New truck. Mods to come!
    Try THIS

    It's pretty straight forward. I just tapped in and then used a connector like this on both sides. And you're good to go!
