canopy on a lowered truck

i have been doing some serious thinking i need something to cover the back of my truck since i have my trailer if i need to haus some big stuff... not sure about a tonneau, i was never really happy with my factory because the way it was setup, so i have thought about a canopy... it kinda reminds me of the old school mini trucks... what is everyones input?

Only way I think they look good on lowered trucks is fiberglass with solid sides. Long term you could carpet the bed and put a pass through boot.

the right cap can improve the looks of the truck and provide dry secure storage.

I thought a canopy was the soft cloth things people put on their trucks? I think it looks like a Mexican truck (not dissing Hispanics just the only way I can explain it) I say no.

Thanks, I liked it too!



... Poor truck, never did get finished. Now its back up in the air! Lol

Here's a picture of Josh's 95.. before he got the black bullits and an exhaust.


To the OP, I say do it. I think they can look good, IF you get a nice cap. Keep an eye out for one of those LEER 100's like mine, (mine's a 100XL to be exact)
