    I know, I know its not the cool thing. But I had a topper on my last truck and the convenience was outstanding. Road trips with just chucking the stuff in the back and not tying things down or tarping. My tools were more secure too. I found this old man topper option. With the light bar across the front I think it looks pretty good. Any thoughts?

    So many say that topper are for older folks. I personally do not think so. Can't beat the functionality of a topper. I would definitely get the roof rack on the topper though.

    I've really been wanting one like that. They look good. And even better with a lift and off-road bumpers

    I use one during the winter. Couldn't live without it Nov-April. Nice for security of winter gear and if I take the dogs anywhere. In the summer I hate having it on. Feel like it's in the way but will put it on for road trips etc

    See OP, look at all of our badass trucks!!!

    Having a topper for me is a necessity. That is where my dogs hang out, my gear dry when needed, and sometimes yourself dry or cool. Those really low sitting lawn chairs work great with these toppers in the summer.

    Softopper is in Colorado. I have driven up to Boulder 4 times to get one. Never an issue with durability. image.jpg

    I'm considering a topper for a 2006 Tundra I'm considering. Currently have a 96 T-100 with a leer on it. Yes........I am a old fart but have a young mind still! LOL!! What kind of price range are new ones that would be color matched to my possible new addition? I'm also considering a folding tonneau as a lesser priced alternative. I apologize if I'm trolling with my question.

    Softoppers are great! I can swap the tonneau out for it and be ready for a quick overnighter in a matter of minutes-

    Cost is around 1100-2000+ depending on what you want. You may get lucky on Craigslist and find a topper that is already the color of your 06.

    Good luck.
