    Hm, maybe I'll skip the rack then. Too bad, because it's only $100 option. I am going to keep the front solid, though. I like being able to load stuff without worrying about cracking the window. Last year, took the neighborhood kids sledding and they were just chucking them in the back...

    Well, contacted yet, another dealer. This time, some positive news---the guy said ARE Classic Alu series is what I need. He claimed they weigh around 50lbs stock (may be a bit optimistic) and ~70lbs with what I want (solid side doors, solid front, and ladder rack). He's sold quite a few and...

    Ecodiesel as a short-distance commuter? Issues?

    Since people seem to put a lot of credibility on Fuelly, here are some stats: Colorado 2.8 Diesel: 2018 - 2018 - 23.6MPG (45 vehicles); 2017 -23.9MPG (68); 2016 - 23.9MPG (117). Colorado 3.6 Gas: 2018 - 18.3MPG (58 vehicles); 2017 - 19.4MPG (60); 2016 - 19.5MPG (141) So given diesel MPG avg...

    There was that attack in Washington (two men. One killed, one injured.) Both were on their mountain bikes. And woman in Oregon. Again, lions scare me the most. Don’t care about bears, or snakes. Although chances of a cougar attack, or any animal attack are pretty low. Thankfully.

    Oh, something solid, for sure. But, knock on wood, in all my years of camping, and in some remote places, never had a bear wander into camp. Much less seen one in the wild (I've seen 2 to be exact). So really, I'm about as worried about that as getting hit by a meteor. I get much more...

    Why would it go down with the 4.6? Suspension different? Is the 4.6 heavier than the 5.7?

    I just want those wheels with the unpainted trim. :D

    They color-match now! Base shell's don't have those barn doors. Just the standard flip up hatch door. Still contemplating. By the way, driving around today, I saw a Tundra with steel wheels (not the 5-spoke). Never knew they came with these. Apparently, work truck trim that isn't...

    2010 Tundra Build “TRD Ferguson”

    Note, I never said it couldn't be done. I just wouldn't want to do it. People have run various, large-sized trucks through Rubicon. I wouldn't want to do it. No offense intended here, but maybe if you've been there and ran some of these trails, you'd understand? Videos and pictures do them...

    I don't know fellas. I called another (different) shop just bearly. They said that all the aluminum units are commercial grade. They stopped making "recreational" shells years ago. He confirmed no way they're less than 150lbs. That's standard with no options.

    Trailer: I wouldn't mind one, if I had the acreage or garage space. I've had em in the past. Nice for some things. Hassle for others. Pulley system won't work for me, either. Garage design/space. I think if the aluminum shell really weighs 75lbs, I could take it off by myself, leave it in...

    That was what the local shop told me. Perhaps to upsell me on the fiberglass shells. I'll have to check out the aluminum shells, then. If they're truly under 100lbs, I would lean that way.

    That Ram is a 2003 2500 QC SB. Dimensions according to Edmunds is SMALLER than the Tundra. Tundra DC and CM have the exact same dimensions, including wheelbase. https://www.edmunds.com/dodge/ram-pickup-2500/2003/features-specs/ https://www.edmunds.com/toyota/tundra/2010/features-specs/ I've...

    Aluminum toppers are just as heavy. Per at least two shops here, they say you'll maybe save 10lbs or so. They're still all around the 200lb range. I typically won't have anything of value back there. The times I do, I wouldn't be leaving the truck for an extended period or heading out...

    Canback's look nice, but two things going against it. Price, and more complicated to fold up (and doesn't fold back like the Softopper).

    What's the consensus on Softoppers? I think I have asked this before, but can't remember. Now I'm debating this again. I sometimes have to haul things that would not fit inside a shell (even high rise). I wish there were an uber light shell available. So maybe 25% of the time, I'd need the...
