I always wanted a fiberglass one with no side windows for my crewcab dually, but as common as they were in the early 90s they seem to be non-existent now

Yeah, the solid SnugTops are hard to come by now. I'd kill to find one to build an old school mini-truck for a daily driver! I bet one would look great on a crew cab dually...

Oddly enough, I just saw a slammed mid-80s crew cab dually in satin black pulling a trailer with a pro-street 69 Camaro on it this weekend... it was a mean set up... wish I would have been able to get a pic of it.

I figured you'd like it, it was kind of costly to get done but worth it I think.

I love the history of that time also. The ship was really cool, I can't imagine how crazy it must have been on that thing during a battle.

Thank you for your service!

I just love how your truck sits... its perfect. Also, that shell fits well... mine sticks up a bit but, when searching for old shells, gotta take what you can get. I went through and read all your thread on how you bagged your truck... pain in the ass but the pay off is worth it in the end.. Hoping to do mine soon.

It was a huge pia but the end result was very much worth it. It rides an handles so much better now. If I can help you with anything just let me know!

Let the shell craze begin! I love it! - added some Van Halen for good measure!

Maybe you should trade with your buddy. Those amber bubble windows would look better on your truck. Although, I do like how your windows open.

Just sold the cap off my '79. I had been thinking about making some wood bed rails for it for a couple of years and the cap had seen better days. Good timing to sell it and get started on a cool project. It's funny when a guy with a '13 Silverado wants your old cap

You might regret that, it'll be hard to find another one!

X 2 - they are getting tough to find a decent one. I guess it depends on where you live. I dunno. I love mine, every time I think about taking it off, I remember how useful it is and sets my truck apart from the cookie cutter trucks... it adds character. Beverly Hillbilly character but, character, none the less.
