Default cap ?'s

I am a new owner of a 2011 Ranger Sport.

I bought without a bed liner which I would like to add on very soon, along with a cap.

Any suggestions on a cap? I would like something to runs flush with the vehicles roofline.

Any suggestions on a bed liner?

Range of prices?

If I were to get a cap I would agree with you on it being flush. The bedliner would be a matter of choice for you, If you dont intend on using it for daily use, line-x, herculiner is cool. If you are using it alot, ged a drop in bed liner, it will protect the bed better that a spray or roll on bed liner

I am still all the way on spray ins. Not a fan of the drop ins at all, but if you go drop in make sure to get one that mounts under than rail, otherwise your cap will sit funny. Shells are very pricey new, so I would be checking craigslist for some as they will run at least 50% less of a new one. Leer makes some really really nice ones.

With a shell it wouldn't be as detrimental, but water and crap getting stuck underneath can eat/rust away the bed. My big thing before I had a shell and spray in was when it was the least bit wet outside the plastic liner was super slick. Do not get that with the spray-in and I had line-x on both trucks and hauled crap that I thought would have done some damage to the spray in and never did and if something did happen, line-x would touch it up for free. Downside is the $400 or so it cost for the spray-in. But it was worth it for me. I actually had it sprayed over the rails and the shell still sat flush.
