2019 Camper Shell Cap Pictures


Recommended Posts

2021 AT4 3.0L w/ snugtop rebel cab high with Winddoors and screens and remote rear lock. Stoked with it so far. 
Registers the truck as not a commercial vehicle in CA which is a benefit of the cap…

also been Building out the back for the occasional camping/ surf days.

Gotta make a cabinet to the right, and finish the bed system for basically a queen size bed.

Love this. Do you have more pictures to share of this build inside and the side view? Looking to do the same but interested in ARE and Leer at the moment.

Yea.

it’s a work in progress… but here’s some more. Modeling after a guy that builds them in Huntington Beach. Solid wood worx.

Looks good. The Kreggs pocket hole jig should be purchase #1 for anyone trying to do these right. Absolute game changer. I made mine a little different than you as we seem to have different needs but they're pretty similar. Nice craftsmanship. 

 

Out of curiosity is yours a 6 1/2 bed? I have took my '19 DC with the 6 1/2 bed all over the west for a 3 1/2 month ski, surf & to visit extended family. Was deliberating if I wanted to liquidate my assets by the time I got home haha, just got a little hot in Socal toward June or Id probably still be out there. Insulated (blackout) window covers and limo tint on the windows are also vital.

I'll post some pictures of mine when I get the chance. Put a full size 5" queen mattress in mine, had room for 3 surfboards on one side, and a 6' x22"x9" drawer on slides on the other. I went with a Leer XL cap, but looked at ARE caps first. Unless you are buying a cap with full swing out windows (which are cheaper built and aren't very aesthetically pleasing) Leer seems to offer better side windows on their high end caps a.k.a. the XL & the highest end I believe is called the XR (whole 6' window bows out, although it looked like it could break haha). The ARE Revo is nice, but it has some really funky, super tiny and cheaply built popout windows. ARE & Leer caps are comparable in price, both of their higher end caps are nice but Leonard (Leer retailer) also has 0% no interest financing for 12 months which sold it for me. 

 

Was a very time consuming project making sure everything was tight and the finishes took a while, but was worth every minute of it. Me and my girl got to see the most epic places for what amounted to gas money and an IKON ski pass. Coolest thing I've ever done. Thank god for remote work, haha. Give me a day or so and Ill snap some pictures for you. 

 

The above poster is doing a really nice job as well. Really just depends on your needs. 

 

FWIW my Leer XL for a 6.5 bed with White Frost Tri-coat, remote door lock (essential) sliding/drop down rear/front window,  carpeted headliner and lights was $2750 OTD. Spent another $900 for drawer slides and build material for the drawer system, $120 for window coverings, $250 to tint my truck and cap (although that's a steal), and $375 on a bed rug (also a necessity) for anyone interested. Didn't leak a drop the entire trip although I did use foam window insulation to seal two small holes in the front of the bed (there are drainage holes water definitely comes through in the front corners of the bed). And I could have a strobe light on in the middle of the night and nobody can see in. 

 

Been taking weekend trips with my boat all over the coast since I got back and it's the ******. Anyone thinking about doing it, go for it. Although imo the 6.5 bed is a necessity if you are going to sleep in it.

Curious what this looks like from the side and back, will you post more photos around this shell? Im debating the SnugTop Rebel vs Xtra Vision. Thank you.

Here’s a few. The license plate lights kinda are annoying. Why would they not match them with the rest of the truck. My opinion.
