I have the top on my 2017 F-250. The build quality is good. This is my third A.R.E top. My major complaint is with A.R.E, their customer service is horrible. Iíve have spent 3-4 hours on hold with their customer service and still havenít talked with anyone from A.R.E. The only reason I purchased the top from them is because they make quality tops. I have some other issues. My key doesnít always work in the back door all the time. Also, the way that the top fits rubbed the paint off of my tailgate. I really donít have the time to deal wih going back to the place that installed it for a third time. Yes,I would recommend A.R.E tops only because no body else makes a good top.

 My First ARE Topper
DCU Series : Ford F150
June 10, 2018    Posted by: Imakethecalls
Dealer I bought this from in Conyers was a First Class Dealership. I am deducting 2 stars for the manufacturer. Why? I think the building process needs to slow down and give more attention to detail. I have noticed some of the sealer applied was over applied. Writing and chaulk dust inside the camper during build that was not removed. Top skin is actually 2 pieces and the seam is offset to center. I think this should have been 1 complete piece being on the roof. Some of the white plastic moulding was not trimmed off also. The third break light is stick on and actually started leaking after the first week. Called the dealer and at his own expense resealed the light. Topper looks great and functions perfectly I just wonder how long the seam in the roof will hold. I purchased a ARE due to seeing many service companies using them over the years. I just hope the good money spent over other cheaper brands pays off and this topper holds up.

 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.
