Finally had my cap installed yesterday. It is an A.R.E. Series V with flip out windows and flip down bulk head window, single handle at back, and luggage tracks on top for a bar system. Haven't had it long to give a good review, but my initial impression is it is built solid. I power washed it because it was pretty dusty and I wanted to see how water tight it is, and it remained dry. Couple drops in front corner but I put water where water normally won't go. A good all day driving in the rain will be the real test. So far, I like it.

Lol subconsciously I am turning the truck into a Yukon that I used to drive. But it's perfect to keep the survey gear secure and out of the elements. And let's face it, the 5'7" bed is just a big trunk anyway. For the big items I have a trailer to use when needed.

I have been looking all over for a color matched white cap for my 5.7 but they seem so rare. How much did you pay did you get it new or used?

I had been searching used for a couple of years but finally decided to buy new exactly what I wanted. All in was just under $2400.
