    I love shells.

    This one is a snugtop XV. Reinforced top, coat hanger, fishing rod holder, led interior lights.

    What I really like about this particular model is that the screens slide open as well as the windows. Comes in super handy for the dogs or hauling stuff that won't fit in the bed. Just slide it all open and stick it through. The front window flips up and stays open with hydraulics so I can open that for the dogs to get more airflow, too. Much better than some options like removing the window or when it flips down which is only useful for cleaning.

    They are for young bad asses and for the bad asses disguised as old guys!

    I put a 3 piece tonneau on mine for now and will buy a hard shell camper for it right before we move to Alaska.

    How do you like the Go Rhino bumpers? I'm thinking about getting the front and rear from go rhino.

    I like them. Just a FYI the rear bumper is a pain to install since you have to modify your hitch. The directions aren't that great either but nothing you cant figure out.

    Do you have any more pictures of your truck with the bumpers. I'm new to this website and wasn't sure if you had like an album or something to view more pictures of your truck.

    I have the same topper on my work truck and it's built very well. Great seals and no leaks. Do you have the led lighting along the inside?

    I found a good deal on a used ARE Z series with options. Has led lights in ceiling and the optional e-lock that locks with your factory keyfob.

    @Almaboy you are correct. Toppers are certainly not my thing, but if they are your thing I hold nothing against you. They just detract from my truck's utility. I cannot load a 4wheeler in the back if I have a topper. However i would not mind having one for a "camping trip".

    Oh, i wasn't offended. I don't have one on this truck. I've had them in the past and they were great "most" of the time. I couldn't load anything big in the back without removing and i didn't have anywhere to store it when i removed it. Out of the 4 trucks i've had one on 2. This truck will not be seeing one...ever. I didn't need it as often as i thought so i put a tonneau and a bed rack...both easily removed and stored and gives me much more versatility.

    I'm not opposed to them...they just aren't for me anymore. My first truck got one because i was living out of it. I don't need to any longer and i'm too old to try to attempt that lifestyle any longer

    Toppers are good for when you take your woman to the drive in. I had a topper with tinted windows on my 95 Toyota pick up. Couldn't tell you what movie we saw.

    I had a shell on my O2 Dodge ram. I was able to get my TRX 450 in and underneath the shell. It was a six-foot bed. The only way I could get it in there was if I removed the tailgate temporarily and loosened the handlebars and rolled them back. Then it would fit right inside. Reinstall the tailgate and shut the glass. I actually really liked that set up because I could hop in the fast lane on riding trips and meet my friends out at the spot. And my gear was safe inside.
