I know it's not the prettiest but...

it only cost 25 bucks, which is a lot cheaper than the tonneau I want, and it doesn't have the fugly flare the fiberglass caps have.
It's just thrown on and clamped down right now, gonna put a new gasket on and try to get it as water tight as possible, maybe go camping next week.

It would most likely look a lot better if you put 5% tint on all the windows on it, you can buy the tint from Walmart too.

Looks good. It gives you a lot more space and a dry place to keep things. It is better than nothing and for 25 bucks you can't beat that deal.

I actually plan on adding tint, it'll be a good place to practice

Yupp, it's getting turned into a camper shell now, inflatable mattress, curtains, lights, etc.

Hey man looks decent. And for 25 bucks that will give you a great place to sleep in the country on hunts and stuff.

Don't like it at all. IMO, it looks real cheap, but if it works for you, rock on!

Tint who needs tint just get a can of black paint and paint the inside take your time no runs and it will be better than tint.

Looks good man, not the one I would go with but for 25 bucks that's a steel. A rack would be pretty cool on the top of it. Can mount a full size spare tire, some tools, high low jack, maybe a light bar with some good off road lights!
