Is anyone considering a cap for their new Colorado. I contacted A.R.E. and they said that they are finalizing their design and should be available very soon. Pros and Cons? Do they improve gas mileage?
Yeah, I'm hoping the rear view camera will help with the visibility thing. That's one of my main beefs with the topper on my current truck. And the rear window gets gunked up so you can't see through it. It'd be nice if you could get a factory installed one that was wired for a defroster, and with a washer and wiper like a wagon or SUV rear window. But I load up the back of my truck for travel-bikes and camping gear and such, and I need the secure cargo space and coverageof a cap so I'll have one on my new truck in spite of it's limitations...Had one on my 82 S10 with the sliding rear window. While it was nice to be able to put stuff in there to stay out of the rain, it was a pain for rear visibility, snow would pack between the cab and top and a few other annoyances...
Read that one a while ago. Interesting fold away camper shell, but still not something I want or need. For those who don't click "forum" up top.I have a thread going in the appearance and body sections covering this topic is well. You guys might want to check that one out.
