in some instances I camper shell could help you haul more because it would prevent your load from spilling over the sides of the bed. But at the end of the day the shell can always be removed if you have to haul anything huge

True. You can fit a lot of small stuff, and it keeps the bed and your cargo dry. But its nice to be able to remove for big stuff

I love mine, how do you like yours?
Just need hot cams and an exhaust and it'd be a beast lol. But the reverse is amazing! And yea that is a good deal!

I hate the way shells look on any truck. But the more I see people setting them up for camping, the more I want one. But it definitely wouldn't stay on the truck all the time.

I didn't really like the way they looked until recently. But they're so useful, and if you set it up right they can be comfy to sleep in. I slept in mine while it was Sub 20 outside and Windy and stayed cozy.

Nice! I might look around for one cheap. I could just tops the little bits of stuff in my box under it to. Already have most of stuff in a smaller plastic toolbox.

I agree. If I wanted an SUV I would've bought one lol. Its a love/hate relationship for me, but it came on the truck when I bought it and it is removable so I'll keep it

I used to hate caps but after buying my current truck that came with one I can say I've changed my mind to a degree. It is nice that I can keep my work stuff in the bed without it getting wet. And I don't get a bunch of filth in my cab. My cap has the side windows that flip open. If it wasn't for that I think I'd have removed it
