Icon10 Put a camper top on my truck

I love it. Normally I dont like flaresides with them because of the flare at the cab, but the benefits out weigh that a lot. I am very happy with it. Already talked to a buddy about building a custom rack for it.

Bought it new. It wasn't cheap, but thats mainly because I added some options. It was just shy of 1500.

Eh not bad how come you didn't opt for the one that is alittle less drastic where it meets the cab?? I had one of those and it made a steppy topper look much better just wasnt the right color and yes do the benefits definitely outway the look

That was the main thing holding me back, but I think the fact i'm lifted helps the look a lot.

I got the best deal with this one. It doesn't bother me that much though. I need to shift it a little, but I'll do that later when we start on the rack.

I need to paint my topper so I can use it some. I got it for free, so I think spending money on a paintjob will be alright.

I wish my windows opened like that

So have you noticed many blindspots? Seems like the flareside topper would be worse about blindspots

Only spot i've really noticed is when I look over my right shoulder, but its not too bad.

Agreed, it fits well.

Rack is going to be cool, can't wait to see how it ends up.
