Like the title says, I've been thinking of getting a cap for my truck for some time now.
I think mainly using it during the winter but with a kid, dog and lots of hobbies it would be nice to have the extra space to throw things in the bed and keep the elements out and keep things secure.
I like my tonneau cover I have but I can see use for all three setups, open bed, tonneau cover, and cap.
And no I'm not an old man. Lol
Pros and cons?
Recommendations on brands?
Pics and experience with you cap?

I've got a cap. Wouldn't have a pickup without one. Had one on every pickup I've had since 1982.
For those that can't
have one...... That's different than won't have one.
I have a Leer. I think it's the 2nd one up. Not a high end but pretty decent.
My bed is now a storage and access area for tools, chairs, four or five different ball mounts (6" drop to 2" drop plus an adjustable one that weighs about 5,000lbs
)) and can also serve as a bed in a pinch.
I can also, and do, put excess luggage in it when I go on a long road trip, I can put sand and gravel and cement bags and keep it out of the rain, I can lock the cap and the tailgate to keep street urchins out of it.......
I wouldn't have a pickup with out it. Unless it was not possible. Some people tow 5th wheels, some people use it on a farm all the time, some people just can't use one.
But unless you're one of those, there's just no point in not having one.
Unless you (not you personally, 'you' generically) think it looks uncool. In which case, you shouldn't be driving a truck anyway.
Might I recommend, maybe a Mazda Miata?
Now that's 'cool'
