I've personally never been a fan of them but it really depends on the style you pick for your truck. I really like the one sonic04edge has on his steppie. His looks amazing. (I was trying to find a pic to whore it out, but didn't find one). It's all about personal preference.

On lifted up trucks, I like the camper shells that go up another level... like this:


And I also like them on anything BUT stepsides... they just look kinda goofy on stepsides.

I think it would look decent... would give you a good place to mount off road lights on it if it has a roof rack too. Just make sure it is colormatched, toppers that are different colors look ugly.

caps are nice because you can lock everything up in the bed, camp in the truck, ect. i love mine for going out to carlisle. things i hate are i can't acess the front of the bed as easy, makes a awkward blind spot out the back, the back windown is constantly dirty and impossable to see out of, and the lock likes to freeze.

best bet i would think would be to find one on craigslist for under $300 thats decent and black in color, that way it wouldint look too out of place. good deals are out there on them, some friends of mine just sold a leer cap very similar to the one oscar mike posted that was on their ranger when they bought it, for a whopping $50.

I use mine alot for storage, and its nice to have to haul around all my stuff in the dry. If you think you would use it alot get one, if not don't bother with it. I don't like the way mine looks and I hate driving around with it on, but sometimes I just can't live without it.

I don't think it would look so great on your truck

Do you want to get a cap for looks or for a genuine purpose? A color matching cab high leer cap would look great on your mazda. It really doesn't matter one bit what anyone else thinks.....it's for your truck.
