Hey Scott, how does that work with your bedliner, and do you pull out your toolbox when you put it up?

That's pretty cool Scott, my only question is do they all come with the girl included in the kit? haha j/k man.

I think I may have to get one, how much do they run?

I bought mine from Lazler on here though for a heck of a deal (alot less than those). so I cant complain! It was barely even used.

The Napier Sportz Tent III will be the best on the market IMHO. I have seen others, and they just dont compare. Mine has a full bed liner, and canopy off the front as you can see

My question is how is this better than a regular truck cap? Just curious because I see ranger009 already has a cap.

Do you have to take out your toolbox for it to fit right?

I personally dont like caps. I dont know that they are better, i just like the tent. I dont have to keep the cap on for a camping trip, the tent breaks down easily. Just a personal preference really.

and yeah, but my box is held in by two j bolts, comes out easily. i take it out before a camping trip. takes like three minutes

i would also check CL:

I dk what size truck it fits though

I'm assuming yes going off your pictures, I just didn't know if it would work without taking the toolbox out.
