    Just upgraded to a 2018 Tundra SR5 Double cab and trying to decide upon a new shell. Looking to see if anyone has a Snug Top Hi-Liner or Hi-Liner sport on a Tundra and would be willing to grab some measurements. I have contacted 2 dealers and Snugtop and gotten 3 different measurements on overall height. I want to be able to park in my garage and have an 82" opening I need to get under. If someone could measure to the top of your bed rail then an overall height it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    I've got a Snug Top Sport Hi-Liner for my 2015 Tundra. With a piece of wood across the top to find the center high point I measure about 48 7/8" high off tailgate when it is down. This takes into account the factory Yakima rails I got from Snug Top, which added about 1/4" to the height above. I measured from the high point on the tailgate in the picture attached. I have aftermarket leaf springs and shackles so overall height of my topper measured from the ground may not be the same as your truck, so I didn't collect those measurements. The stock suspension will sag a tiny bit with the weight of the topper.
    Edit: the above measurement factors in the width of the wood on top of the topper.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Looks like it will fit in the garage with not much to spare.

    Do you happen to have some profile pictures of your truck with the snug top sport Hi liner? Looking to get one of these but having a hard time finding some good profile pictures.

    I have since put a roof rack with Thule box and awning on the topper. The awning obscures the profile view on the passenger side. However, below is a view of the driver's side.

    That’s a great looking rig Jefor0! Digging that color. How does that skirt contour to the body, Is it tight or stick out quite a bit?

    Thank you. The skirt around the base of the topper follows the bed contour very well, only has about 1/4" to 1/2" or so of clearance. I have gotten a little bit of rubbing over the last 5 years but it has also been on/off the truck a few times and I have also adjusted it a couple times as well. The hardware that attaches the topper to the bed is a little cheap, in my opinion, and I have had to replace it once due to it bending a little. In hindsight, I would have also gone with a much thicker aftermarket rubber gasket seal (in addition to the OEM topper seal) between the base of the topper and the truck bed. I get a little bit of water ingress when it is raining and high winds.
