if its just for looks and you dont haul stuff too often a soft tonneau cover is the way to go. they look much nicer than a cap IMO and a new tonneau would cost about as much as a good used cap.

JCW has regular extang roll up tonneaus for $225 with free shipping. still a big chunk of change, but might be cheaper ones out there too.

my gpa has a roll up cover just like the 2nd link. but his is for a 99 chevy dually longbed so i dont think it will fit lol. i like the solid fiberglass ones way better than the roll up ones though

well, you could always throw the one from the chevy over your truck when it snows to keep it clean, haha. the 'glass ones are nice looking too, but bulky to try to remove if you ever want to haul something big. i've helped my neighbor get the one off his dodge more times than i can count.

Nope got one on my 350 if you look in my pics you can see the back of it.

my truck has a shell on it and I love it and hate it at the same time lol.

Goods- more room to keep ur stuff locked up, you can sleep in/under it, semi-privacy

Bads- might be expensive(if new), can't haul large things, creates blind spots, middle window is always dirty

Any questions, feel free to ask
