good looking job and cap
hey where did you get it and what, if ya dont mind me asking, did it cost? ive been wanting to get 1 for the winter for snowboarding trips and what not....
Hey Codman... sorry I havent replied sooner... gettin ready to road trip to Fla from NC here soon and have been ball's to the wall at work...
I ordered the cap thru local dealer (Fayetteville NC), there's only 2 local cap dealers worth a spit here local for me. It took exactly 2 weeks from when I ordered it to the day they installed it on the truck.
Pix dont do it justice.. but the paint matched to a T!!
it's a Leonard Cap made by Century Truck Caps - here's the link:
Century Fiberglass, Inc. | T-CLASS Fiberglass Truck Caps
it's the T-class for my super duty. The option I got was the carpet interior (which for an extra $80 I highly recommend) and I left off the options for front slider window (dont need it and truck cab has solid rear glass anyway.. I'm use to using mirrors.. so seeing out of the back isnt a big deal and saved a extra $150 - which I spent on the VR3 rear camera system - $89 at Wally world - works excellent).
I paid $1,300 complete/installed including mounts and foam/sealer for the bottom railing and wiring of the 3rd brake light and 12v power accsy to the inside rear bulkhead for the VR3 camera.
Thanx for the positive comments.. my youngin's love it!!! and it's great for a temp place to sleep while on the road without havin to spend money on a motel.. throw in a 12v fridge, the laptop and a port-a-potty and we "Truckin"!
Oh... the couch in the back is a 'Click-a-clack' that can be found at Big Lot's.
I got lucky and they had a scratch N dent couch (the one you see in the truck) for $150!!! I couldnt turn it down...
It's a couch, that can transform into a lounger or fold flat into a sleeper bed deal. I took the legs off it and installed industrial velcro to the metal post pads (4 in x 6 in) in each corner and that holds it really well to the bed rug.. doesnt slide at all.
Measured out at 74 inches in length and just over 48 inches wide which fit between the wheel well's easily with a inch and a half or so to spare for room.
The couch itself is actually black.. that's a brown removeable cover that can be washed and replaced (just velcro'd on)
I've added battery powered swivel type LED lights ($12 a 3 pack at Big Lot's), a Carbon monoxide detector ($40 at Wally world), one of them fancy see-thru humidity/air temp-inside/outside thermometers, the 7/5/4 way and dual 12v cig lighter adaptor plug and installed a 2.1 surround sound subwoofer and 2 satalite remote speakers for the laptop/dvd player (radio shack $49 - link --> RadioShack.com - Computers: Accessories: Speakers, mics & headsets: Cyber Acoustics CA3554 Multimedia Speaker System
I'm running 2 Black and Decker 100 watt DC to AC converters and for big power chore's a Black and Decker 400 watt DC to AC converter if I need to run the laptop (GPS navigation, 12v heated blanket (for momma), the kids Playstation2 in the cab.. ect..). The speaker system ROCKS!!! and doesnt use alot of power at all and can be ran on one 100 watt converter!
