    Can you guys/gals show me your high profile shell?

    I'm debating on a cab-high or if I should go with a higher profile for more space.

    Please only post pics of high profile shells - no cab high shells.

    Thanks

    ARE MX Series. If you're going to put a platform in there, I'd get the mid-rise or hi-rise cap. That extra head room is nice so you're not overly cramped in the bed of the truck.

    Thanks! It has 885s on 5100s set at zero, so probably about 2.5 in the front. Rear has tsb with a 1.5 AAL. I'm not sure what the clearance is. I have been a little worried in some parking lots but they all had the clearance bar. I had the ARE MX on my old truck as well. I do a lot of biking and the extra height helps out a lot since you don't have to lower or remove the seat when putting bikes in the back. It is also bi e for camping. I got a eureka gear loft and hung it from the rack mounts.

    so what would you say, its maybe 4" above cab height?

    Pugga, how about your A.R.E.? how high above the cab would you guess it is?

    Thanks guys.

    Never measured but I'd guess between 3 and 4".

    Please keep these coming, guys.

    I'm on the fence with a high-profile shell as I need the height for my bikes, yet I'm not quite certain on the looks. Any additional photos you have would be much appreciated.

    Feel free to PM me if you've already posted. I'd love to see a Leer 180 on a DCSB TRD.

    Thanks!

    I was totally a 'cab high' guy until I got this one. I sleep in mine, so it makes a big difference. I've got carpet lined and a BedRug, lights, Velcro curtains and a futon. Better than home.
