The silver and white look isn't bad, but I plan on painting to match the truck when I get some free time. It's also got some hardware on top that looks like a roof rack or something could be mounted to it. I'll post some pics of those tomorrow and maybe you guys can help me figure out what I could mount up there.

I want those side windows so bad.

Yeah they're really nice. A buddy of mine with a cap swore by them. That's why I wanted one that had them. Haven't hauled anything yet to put them to good use though.

Hey guys I was wondering were you mount cb antennas on a truck with a cab. I have 2 antennas and a cophase wire to use and can't think of a place to put them. Has anyone just made mounts that go under the cap and sit in about the same spot as an open truck bed? That's my main idea right now. I don't need super range with it.

I mounted mine to the tailgate latch bolt

Do you have a picture of it with the whole truck shown? I may do something like that but does it ever get in the way when you're using the bed and tailgate?

No I made it so it wouldn't get in the way. That's why it sits rear of the tailgate so that it is past the topper, and then put the mounting surface on the right above the taillight so that it clears the glass. These pictures are of my old truck (01 XLT) and i noticed on my new truck (01 Edge) the gap between bedside and tailgate is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller, so much that the gate rubs my bracket now. Going to swap beds soon tho.

Don't have too many of the truck with antenna and topper on, got wrecked a few weeks after I put it back on.

It can. I bolted mine to the truck using the top screw from the tailgate latch. I'll grab a picture of it later
