few more questions

well im looking at getting a camper shell for my truck. it would make things a bit easier.

and i found a leer shell, but its white. which will look okay on a silver truck temporarily.

but what color is my 07 silver ranger?

what is the exact color? or how can i find it...

and heres the shell
http://reno.craigslist.org/pts/1067832939.html

what do you guys think
i know they're a bit oldman-ish

but function > form right?

The Paint code for your truck should be in the driver's side door jam.

I'm putting a Leer on as well..

I totally agree with function usually being on the top of my list. If I were you I'd just get it painted to whatever color code is on your door jamb.

I have the Leer for my truck. That exact same setup. It is GREAT for camping. I have a nice little aluminum boat that sits right on those racks too. Throw a twin size matress in the back, and you got the best setup around. No tents, little mess, and its actually kinda warm in the winter too.
