Truck Caps, Camper Shells, Toppers... call them what you will, lets see them

This was discussed in another thread so I thought I would go ahead and get this started.

Here is what I have. It is an old aluminum cap that I picked up for nothing that I shortened to match my in between long and short bed truck. It is currently at 7' instead of the typical 6 1/2' short bed.

Love this thread. What dimensions should the base of the shell be for a short and wide bed (like Outkasts?) Keeping my eyes open locally for an old aluminum shell for my 80 SWB.

I was fortunate enough to buy mine from someone that had it on an 80 something short bed K10 so, I knew it fit. I will measure it tonight and post up the dimensions.

Here is the topper that came with my truck. If it didnt seem to rain every time I go to pick something up I probably would have ditched it by now.

It's a "Raven" camper shell, Paid $100 for it years ago. Comes in handy now and then.
