 DCU Cap and Kargomaster ladder rack
DCU Series : Chevy/GMC Silverado/Sierra
February 15, 2018    Posted by: Larry
I recently purchased a DCU cap and Kargo Master ladder rack for my personal truck based on an identical one that was on a company truck I had. The first one delivered to the dealer was incorrect (solid passenger side- door missing). Once the 2nd one was installed, I was pleased. The only issue was, after driving home from the 2nd installation, the passenger side door rubbed the rear leg of the ladder rack when opening it. I nudged the leg rearward with a block and a sledge, but it wouldn't have even been an issue if the passenger side cap door was just 1" shorter (still centered on the cap, would give 1/2" clearance- MORE than enough). Otherwise, the cap and rack are everything I expected and function perfectly for my needs.

 Third time is a charm
DCU Series : Ford F150

This is my third A.R.E. DCU unit. I appreciate the improvements for each successive model. My 2nd unit had Bolt technology keys; the latest one has eLocks. All models have security screens installed so during my working days I didnít have to worry so much about theft ( I had the truck security alarm extended into the DCU unit). The back double opening doors make loading 4x8 sheets of plywood easy as pie. I would definitely purchase another. The matching paint job was perfect.

 My DCU Cap Experience
DCU Series : Ford Super-Duty
December 21, 2017    Posted by: TTH
I purchased the DCU with full length doors and tool boxes on both sides and rear double doors. My truck was a used 2012 F-250 with an 8 foot bed. This setup has been working well for just over a month. I was expecting the cap to form a waterproof bed area but this is not the case. The initial installation left large gaps and holes at the rear where the tail gate used to be. I returned to the installer and they added some foil tape and foam to help close up these areas. These measures would have been more effective if completed during the initial installation. I am also not sure if the back doors leak water and am still working to determine where the leaks are coming from. This is my first experience working around a cap like this and my expectations of a water tight bed area may not be accurate, I don't know. Over all the cap is Great! The fit seems to be my issue but does not seem to be related to the truck being used prior to the installation. If I were to do it over, I know am better prepared to talk to the installer.
