CX Revo Camper Shell finally installed !
nino posted a topic in 2019-2023 Silverado & Sierra ModsOverall pretty satisfied (9/10) with the CX Revo. Was hesitant due to all the negative reviews online but it seems pretty sturdy. The shape of the rear glass opening could be a bit better if it was curved more towards the tailgate. You can see it sticks out a little bit. Tried sticking my hand through and its a pretty tight fit so not too worried about that. May end up switching over to the new Leer model coming out soon but who knows. See pics below : ?
Hi, I have a 2006 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab with the 5' 8" box. I know during 2007 they changed the style slightly, so I'm wondering if a canopy that is currently on a 2008 1500 crew cab (5' 8") would still work? I know the fit wouldn't be exactly perfect, but has anyone had first hand experience trying this or seen it done? I'd greatly appreciate it if you could let me know how it went if so! Looking at the box sizes they're very close (attached photo), but I wonder with the slight style change how it would sit/mount. I've been in need of one for a while but tight on money and they're tricky to find used in my area, one just became available and I'm hoping to pick it up if it would work. If anyone has seen it done where a 2007-2013 canopy has went on the classic style I would love to hear about it and how it fit. Thanks!
spenpet posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsSo I currently have a bakflip MFX4 on my truck...it does ok, but it does leak...more of the issue is that my wife started a new business and in some instances it would be very beneficial to have more room, dare I say a camper shell. No offense to anyone who might have one, but I'm not into the old school multi-level jobs...but I am trying to warm up to the cab-level versions...we just started this process, so I'm not even real sure about pricing and models, etc. I would prefer kind of a sporty look to enhance the look of my truck rather than detract from it... If you could post some pics, model/manf, prices etc, and recommendations, I would certainly appreciate it. really so far I have come across Leer, ARE, Snugtop...but haven't really found much about each of them yet... Thanks in advance.
spenpet posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsGood afternoon...I am getting a camper shell on my truck for my wife's business, she sells clothes that I need to keep clean and dry. I've done a quick search for tailgate seals and it seems there is anything from weather stripping from your big box stores, so what appear to be custom applications (they might just be lipstick on a pig)... Anyway...I don't mind paying a little extra, but want to find the best one possible for my '16 short bed. Does anyone have any success or horror stories that I should consider or stay away from? Thanks in advance!
Softopper Soft Camper

Installed used cap on 2014 Silverado
Dallas2 posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsHi All, I picked up a used A.R.E. truck cap this last weekend. I have a few over night excursions, I'd like to attend and finding a decent motel with vacancies has been a problem. So, I decided to see what was available in the truck cap department. Of course finding a "cheap" used cap for a 2014 doesn't work. But, I did find a 2000 - 2006 era, A.R.E., 6.5', fiberglass cap of the right color on Craig's List. The caps seem to run from 2000/2006, 2007/2013 and 2014/2015. So, I wasn't optimistic about it fitting or not looking totally out of place. I don't know what the cost of a new cap is, but have heard, $1100 and up. My little beauty was settled on, at $275. I don't intend to keep it on, when I'm not needing it, so my next project will be a hoist to hang it in the barn. I've learned, the new tailgate shape is referred to, as a "whale tail". The cap door for the straight tailgates closed against the back of the tailgate. I believe, the new ones close to seal, on the top of the tailgate. So I cut the bottom of the aluminum off, below the handle, reversed the rubber seal and remounted the "sweep", up about 1" higher. Replaced the window screening and wired the third brake light ... Chevy makes that pretty easy, as the proper wire is in the rear by the spare tire. You can see, in the last picture, that the back door isn't closing properly ... that was before the modification.
