Before and after pics

Figured I'd throw up some pics of yay truck I got a few months ago now that I've done a majority of the things I want to it. It had a superlift when I bought it, I removed the chrome grile insert, added 285 duratracs, 2006 mirrors, 2006 fender emblems and one emblem on the rear canopy door, fx4 bedside decals, 2006 corner lights, and cut and buffed the truck. In the future I'm gonna paint the wheels dark graphite grey and and a roof basket to the canopy.

Nice truck! I really like that camper shell! I don't see too many with the door on the back like that.

A couple questions about the canopy.
1. Does it open like a traditional one? I see seams and was wondering.
2. Did the dealer or previous seller give you the tailgate in case you don't wanna have the top on?
3. What is the point of this style of topper? I've seen them on some fullsize trucks but they might have been survey trucks or similar.

The truck looks better with the larger rubber. Have you thought about a rim with an offset? It looks pretty tall for a truck and those would make it more stable.

I'm also partial to the colour. :]

I think I remember seeing it for sale down here in the Portland area on Craigslist earlier this year or it may have been last year.

Looks good! Needs 16x8 wheels at least!

I actually considered buying almost the exact same canopy back when I was in the market and when I bought mine. The glass in the middle opens like a house door. The rear panel as a whole is hinged at the top with shocks...so it's like a SUV rear door.

Don't know about it being for sale anywhere else but I know it's never been plated outside WA. I'll get a pic of the inside when I can sure. Thanks for the responses. The back door opens as one large SUV style door and the smaller glass door opens up. I didn't get the tailgate with it which kinda pissed me off. I don't know the specific purpose but it seems very camper oriented. With all the windows able to open for cab access and the entry door, the dome light and the carpet kit, plus it being high rise so you can sit up it makes the perfect camper. For me it's a great storage area for stuff and when I go camping it's my tent. I actually have grown to love it. With the whole back opening up you can fit just about anything inside it. I would like new wheels but realistically I'll never buy em I have other priorities.

This thread is a couple years old, unlikely the OP will come on to answer. I would look at Snugtop, LEER, and ARE tops.. I'm sure one of them will make something similar to fit your truck.
