Went on a quick camping trip with the new canopy on the back. Worked out pretty good for the night.

I had mine on for 3 Months. Took it off. Hated the blind spot it gave me, wasn't really good for much to me. Made by Ranch, I still have it. Might put it back on for camping. I have no intentions of painting it. Black looks fine. Like an idiot I let someone else put it on, and when they did they put the protective foam Sticky side DOWN onto the bed of my truck

so if i ever wanna put it back on I have to flip it over and clean the shell and clean all the sticky **** off my truck and put new foam on. Also I'd have to clean up the wiring. They spliced into my taillight with electrical tape and speaker wire. So i have to tear it out and put Automotive wire in there with heat shrink tubing, so it actually looks professional. Infinite audio. Place is supposed to be a major stereo company. Pretty much anything electrical in cars. I wouldn't let them install a cup holder in my truck after this.

Just bought this A.R.E. topper, and now I don't have a use for it. I have wanted a toneau cover, but a recent job that didn't pan out forced me to purchase this. Very nice quality, and I can't believe how different my truck looks with this. Anyway, if anyone knows someone interested in purchasing this, please let me know. Thanks.

Love mine, wasn't crazy about its looks at first but after the bigger tires and cosmetic upgrades I like it. Has a dome light inside that's powered by the battery and I installed a power inverter in the bed. Canopies carpet lined.

Leer 100R (new mold) with Windoors. Purchased used off Craigslist for $150-200ish. Was Oxford White...had it painted and had also had him spray dark gray/almost black sealer on the inside since white bare 'glass is dog ugly. I have a Yakima track/towers/bars to install as well as I'm hoping to find a LoadWarrier or MegaWarrier with extensions used. I'm waiting on rack install until I have a basket. Want the basket tight to the roof.









Sealer on inside.... makes it alot better looking inside and you can't see the walls through the windows from the outside.

Shane do you like the shell set-up better than the tool box and pro-rack you have?

Each have their own pros and cons. The only real reason I got the canopy is I was hardcore looking for a job and/or ready to pull trigger to move to the southeast coast or elsewhere outside of Portland, Oregon. Having a canopy gave me TONS more secure room than the extended cab or passenger seat gave. I wasn't planning on a trailer either. I could have got random X canopy for dirt cheap last minute and only used it for the move, but that just ain't my style. It's gotta look right and look good. It may not come off. But things didn't fall into place. Still got the canopy too.

And actually, the toolbox stays no matter if I've got the rack or canopy on. It's a floor mount tool chest now.

Not sure what brand mine is. I bought it off of a friend who had an silver 02 Ranger. Yakima racks on top. Also looking for a basket. I'm not sure if I like the look of the truck better with it on or with my low pro toolbox on. I go back and forth.

Its great for camping. Though, I need to trim my drop in bedliner. Or take it out and get it linex'd. It leaks just a bit.

The canopy is a snug pro with driver side too box. I will be putting a rack on top! Canopy can hold 500 pounds on top.

I know this thread is ancient, but dammit, I have been wanting a shell for a while now and had to add my new top to the list. Yay for me.

My Ranger came to me with an aluminum shell that was purchased the same day that the truck was, back in 02. It's in immaculate shape as is the truck and the shell doesn't appear to have ever been removed.

I use it all the time because I take my 2 Great Danes with me just about everywhere I go. There's no better way to transport two huge, hairy, sometimes wet and filthy dogs than in a truck with a shell.

I equipped shell with blue LEDs to keep an eye on them at night, a 5 gallon bucket for water, and a 3/4" thick rubber horse stall mat for the floor so they don't slide around. I put an RV type vent in the roof with a 12V fan for cooling during the summer and typically throw a bale of hay in that they arrange for their comfort. Cleaning is as simple as dropping the tailgate and taking the leafblower to it...the power washer for real dirt.

Works for me...works for them. Sorry....no pics on this computer

Figure I'd bump an update on mine...

Installed a chest using four 5/16" nutserts in the floor. I run the box with the canopy or with the headache rack. Very usable. Literally the largest box that would fit.

I love mine. Use it to carry my kayak. I had a rack built out of 1 1/2" square tubing. It's got room to carry 3 kayaks. The red tube is to carry my greenland paddles.

Just made a canopy to hang off the side. Just need to finish wiring up the lights.

I'm no good with the pictures. Mine looks like a camper shell--I like it and use it a lot.
