    Could always cut lower, then make a second cut to dial it in and get the right height. Will be a pain but will look great.

    Spend the $ on the ruler buddy. “Measure twice, Cut once” . This screams BUY A RULER!

    This will be tricky with a cap @EatSleepTacos

    I didnt. At the time, I had a softopper. So I had to make my cuts at 18" because of the rail that sat on the top of the bed rail.

    I talked with Joe about that. What I'm going to do is just measure from the side of my cap on down, since I have the kind that wraps over the edge. Is yours like that? I can't remember.

    Question. Did you aim for the middle of the tape like the write up?

    It is. We can probably measure that lip and adjust accordingly.

    @HCJ or we could go balls deep and remove our caps, and use that as an opportunity to clean reseal our bed rails.

    I vote for the “balls deep” approach @EatSleepTacos has recommended

    I think the tape is there just for paint protection. I have a cut line marked inside of it.

    Remember, its been almost 2 years since I made the cut

    One thing I do wish, is that I left my flare on. Its difficult to get the same cut line if you take it off.

    The cut off disc is deep enough to do both. Or at lease to score the bed side where you already cut the flare

    no. Maybe just a little spray paint.

    @EatSleepTacos might be wise to get some of this. Either locally or on Amazon. Its what I used

    This is going to be one busy day with all this stuff!! Although the more I think about it I'll just leave my cap on. It's pretty heavy with the windoors and reinforced roof, and it doesn't leak (or if it does, I can't tell with my platform). Yours would be pretty easy though.
    That's what I want to do with mine. Just rip right through it all for consistency

    So it appears my World Cup 2018 trip to Russia wont be happening. The lottery for the tickets is 1/2 through and I havnt heard a thing. Kinda sucks. I was hoping to see Moscow and Rome in June.
