Didn't look at all 110 pages, Do they still make those shells, without windows on the side that just has the one back window? that is what i want if i can find one for my 93 xlt short bed. i would love to cut the cab and seal it with the gasket so i could have more room but not sure anyone still does this now days? used to be huge about 15 yrs ago

not many. Yes they still make those. But you can get it to seal on the cab.

Packed up some gear to spend a few days down at my girlfriends. Ended up sleeping back here after a party at her place. Just wish she didn't bring the cats with us lol.

Just got mine. Unsure on brand, but will get better pics. Looks like the previous owner tried to color match it, but while it is similar, it is slightly too dark.

Ill be honest, I am not sold on the looks right now. I always wanted a topper, and love it already. But my truck is desperate for some exterior upgrades... I dont want it looking like an old man's fleet truck!

I am considering plasti dipping it matte black until I get it properly color matched, but the wheels and tires I am considering upgrading. My first through was black wheels, but I have a hard time getting colored wheels. I am pretty unsure right now!! Any ideas? I also am against a lift (sorry!). Maybe some Explorer 16 or 17's with size 235/75 tires?

I've got a question for the guys with Roof racks on there flareside toppers. I am really wanting to do roof rails to mount a basket and what not. What did you guys use? So far everything is to wide for my liking!

Topper doesnt appear to have a quality gloss coat so some times it looks "dull" compared to the truck paint. But up close the color is very similar. Probably going to not paint it for awhile.

Anyone know if you can fit a queen bed in on the diagonal with a cab height shell?

Need to move my girlfriends bed into our new house.
