My truck is the same color. You have excellent tasteThis one is an ARE. My last two trucks were Leer, but they told me they didn't have one that fit this one correctly at the time.
Speaking of karma, yesterday I decide to go visit a watering hole about 15 miles from me. So, as I get into a traffic circle I hear a solid 'WUMPH!". I instinctively look in the rear view mirror and see something about 4' long, black and laying in the middle of the road behind me. I think, "Oh well, just ran over something."
So I motivate on down the road and notice that my tailgate is open. "What the heck??!!"
I pull over and sure enough, my tailgate's open and the cap that fits over the top of the tailgate that keeps water out? It's missing. MIA.
Then I thought to myself, "Self, I bet that was what you saw laying in the middle of the road back in the traffic circle."
So I turn around to go look for it, holding out no hope of it being in one piece.
At the point, my truck goes into regen for the first time ever (17,250 miles) and I'm in the middle of traffic and can't get a chance to stretch her legs a little bit.
Oh well. The place I bought the cap from is right around the corner so I go there and order a new one. $30. No big deal. Just kind of ticks me off.
I'm blaming my wife but it very well could be my fault. Almost certainly is.
How does this affect my friends here at the Cummins Club For Boys?
Those cap deals on the back of the tailgate can make it a little more difficult to close your tailgate. They like to catch on the cap rail when it's warm out. You'll see.
So make sure you close your tailgate SOLIDLY before you haul arse down the road.
In fairness to my wife, it's happened before. Not with the tailgate slamming down but I've opened the cap hatch lid and had the tailgate try to come down on me because it wasn't latched properly.
Minor point. But worth noting.
Now I gotta go put some tape on the hatch to keep water from getting into the bed when it rains. PITA.
