    It looks better without. But I sure wish I had one.

    I used to think that canopies were lame...but now I can't imagine having a truck without one. Secure storage, no wet groceries, no stolen bikes etc. Always had cab high though. At least it's not the really grandpa'ish super high rise type! Yours has a Subtle enough slope that I'm ok with it though lol.

    Braddock, I agree. I just got the truck and it was thrown in with it. I really want a BakFlip tonneau.

    I have a Bakflip, while I do really like it I am starting to lean towards a topper. I have a trailer to haul anything big so don't really need an open box like I used to. Only problem is for the 6.5ft box the toppers don't look very good. The 5.5ft has some awesome looking toppers.

    Mine has pretty much had the cap from about a month after I got it. We have 2 Labrador Retrievers that we put in the back for most trips around town. They ride in the cab on long trips, provided there is room. For that last two Christmas trips, they have ridden in the back. I put a bike innertube between the cap and the cab and leave the two windows open. This year I put a rack so that our smaller lab couldn't squeeze through like she did last year. I've tested keeping the back warm to forty below zero. The metal of the bedside is still warm to the touch, even at highway speeds. They had beds and carpet to lay on though, so they weren't directly on the metal.

    I don't have a trailer, so pretty much everything else goes in the topper. I had it off to pick up a larger item, and it degraded the ride I was used to. It was easy to remove, though and just as easy to put on.

    I think it looks better without, but think it depends on what you need. I have a tonneau on my Ranger and love it. Been thinking about getting a camper top for the 150 so that I can put the big dog in back and take her tracking.
