    Haven’t seen to many pictures of these around. Picked one up yesterday. I like it so far. Seems very well built and the negative air vent seems like an interesting idea. There were a couple threads talking about these before they were released. Anyone else have one?

    Slicker than snot on a doorknob.

    From their site:
    The truck cap that thinks it’s a convertible.
    Put it on. Take it off. Put it on. Take it… you get the idea. The SmartCap comes on or off in just 15 minutes—giving you the flexibility to haul taller loads.”

    Does that mean you can remove *only* the top panel if you needed to haul something big?

    No, I’m not really sure how it’s any different in terms of ease of removal than the fiberglass topper I had on my Tacoma. Six clamps holding it to the bed. It does have a much better seal than my fiberglass cap did so maybe that’s why they’re making that claim. The gull wing openings on the sides are huge when they’re open so maybe that?

    Where did you pick it up? Did you install yourself? Good lines not being fiberglass. Better than the RLD version. Did the dealer have any of the options available to test out? Kitchen window looks sweet but pricey.

    Picked it up at a local topper shop that assembles and installs for free. They didn’t have any of the options to look at. I was all about that kitchen set up until I saw the price tag. I think I’m good with my $100 Coleman stove

    Thats pretty sweet! But that handle sticking out like that would just bug me especially for that price tag.

    Finally some photos on a Superwhite, thanks for sharing! I'm seriously considering one of these, but also waiting to see more details on the GFC topper when they come out.

    I’m definitely a fan. Really well built and secure. The things seems bomb proof. Happy to take any additional pictures if you need them.

    Same here, I'm holding out to see a picture of the DC version.
    I talked to the company, they said they've been shipping DC versions so it's only a matter of time until a pic shows up somewhere.

    Looks great!

    Can you give us a shot from straight from the side so I can see the gap between the cab?

    It could probably slide about an inch further forward if I wanted it to but I wanted it more centered on the tailgate.
