Just just made some really good points. Especially about the tailgate lock.

The way my camper door comes down it won't allow my tail gate to open even if and snatch on it pretty hard. There was a right up a guy did a few months back that was super clean, looked like a regular key lock like what's in the door. If I can find the thread I'll post it up.

----------

Tailgate locking device found it, looks kinda complicated to make but the outcome is awesome.

Like is it the same guy who ruins every camper shell and keeps selling them to everyone? Hahaha

On the bright side if you have a center handle type latch with the two extending arms, and your latch is broken like mine where the extending arms are no longer connected to the handle, you can lock the glass from inside by manually sliding one of the bars over to catch the inside pillar of the cap. And if you don't already have one I would suggest getting a tailgate lock because you can just pop the glass open by lowering the tailgate lol
Lol Mine doesn't even have a third brake light lol

I got an electronic tailgate lock in mine, hooks up to your door circuit (assuming you have power locks)

Topper was (is) white, but I plastidipped the whole thing. Turned out pretty well.

Thanks, I like it better too. Makes me wish I hadn't spent so long looking for a white topper since I just plastidipped it anyways lol

Bust out the dip and do the rockers black too. I think that's look killer.
