The cap looks good, I just don't like the bars on top of it.

I hate you. lol I have been looking for a cap for 2 years and can't find one to fit my truck. All I find are ones for older body styles. I love how it looks on your truck.

That looks fantastic!

I suggest getting a basket for the top. Would really set it off.

ya i am going to play with it a bit after the dunes meet cause this things a pain to take off and with it on i can pack a whole wack of stuff in there now. so i will take it off after the meet, better once then twice....needs a good wax/cleaning and i am going to paint the bars black for now and night shade the 3rd brake light.

Looks great! I love how the nicer caps look like that. I have found a few used caps for the F150 but none that have a nice shape that compliments the truck.
Any interest in a very lightly used yakima megawarrior basket with spare tire carrier if I can make the dunes trip?

Looks real good. You can't beat $100 for an already matching cap!

no, i didn't do it yet, it actually looks like there were a few wiring problems with it...the bulb was pure black, and the socket it sits in was melted to a blob haha i was debating just putting it inside my window screwed to the top of the window frame instead of cutting the topper, and either running a wire from the 3rd brake light under the truck to the light, or figuring out which wire it is in the trailer harness and splicing it to the topper.
