    Fiberglass caps are lightweight and sturdy with weights ranging from 80 to 120 lbs. Some companies provide pickup caps made of their patented material that is lightweight, as strong as fiberglass, and cost-effective. Aluminum caps are usually used in lightweight trucks. These caps are sometimes less expensive than their fiberglass counterparts, but can be dented easier than the fiberglass caps. (http://www.offroaders.com/tech/truck-caps.htm)

    this is great info...im looking for a nice decent tent setup for Moab in August...im just trying to find one small enough..or maybe something that can fit my tiregate in the outboard direction...im guessing it should as it extends out about the same as with the tailgate down...i need to hit a nice outdoor store...like cabellas and see what tents they have that could fit my truck.

    Nice! yea Hill is probably in one of the best offroad locations for sure...Utah is bad ass man...im trying to get stationed there after my tour here. problem is with the down sizing...who knows if any positions will still be held out there.
