I will when I get back. At the airport heading to assault.

The fit on the sides is good, just a bit of overhang. The rear door is a bit iffy, the installer took pics and sent it to Leer to check.

Paint match seems right on, and that electronic lock sure is worth the $100 it costs. Plus it uses the factory fob

Thanks for posting your top! Would you consider taking a few more pictures when you can that show different angles of the CAP? I really like the look of it from the side and was wondering how it looks over the side flare and from rear.

If anyone else has installed a CAP I would love to see more pictures..

THANKS!!

Your thoughts would be appreciated.


Thanks,

I recently picked up a new ARE truck cap from a company called EZ Wheeler. It was a little pricier than I had hoped but it was well worth it. It's a really slick looking cap and gives my truck more of a SUV look. Any ways i'm sure your canine companions would love it under there.

Default ARE Z-Series on G2 Raptor
Got the new ARE Z-Series Canopy / Topper installed yesterday.
Options include -
@ Custom painted to match
@ Full fold-down back window (can clean the glass easily)
@ Keyless entry - unlocks and locks with the truck's FOB
@ Automatic courtesy light (I will wire in a rope LED to that)

I peeled the dealer sticker off the back glass about 30 seconds after I shot these pics.
More on the Fubared BedRug later...

Bringing this thread back to life... Now that you guys have had the toppers for a few months are you experiencing any paint damage on the bed flare? Spoke to two different shops and both have seen issues. Apparently ARE solution is to install a different type of seal that gives a bit more clearance.

Because you have one on your Raptor? Or because you used to own a Snugtop? Or because you're suffering from Tourettes?

You must be bored to dig this up from 9 months ago.

That's the one I'm looking at. Any issues with the topper rubbing the paint on the bed where it flares out?
