 A cover for my Canyon
V Series : Chevy/GMC Colorado/Canyon

On my last truck, I had an A.R.E cap and was very happy with it. When I bought this truck (2018 GMC Canyon) I returned to A.R.E. for another cap. It made quite a difference in the quietness of the truck and also the ride. I love the look too. I use the truck bed as more of a trunk rather than for cargo carrying. When we travel it is also a temporary place for our pets to stay while we are in a restaurant. With the side and back windows open they won't overheat like inside the vehicle. This time I opted for the fabric headliner to go along with the Bed Rug product that lines the box. What an awesome finished look. I am very happy with my new truck and cap.

 Not like the one in brochure
V Series : Chevy/GMC Silverado/Sierra

I was dissappointed that my series V shell. It was not like the one pictured in the ARE brochure. All the shells pictured in the brochure show a raised reinforced bed, around the entire bottom edge. It gives the look of a sturdy, well made shell. This feature makes ARE stand above the competition. But my shell doesn't have that. In fact, it looks like an imitation "LEER". The aluminum window frames have screws that are installed at an angle, which looks like sloppy craftsmanship. The overall length is 1/2" short of fitting all the way forward on my truck bed. The carpet headliner has voids where it's not seated in the corners, rather stretched over the radius. Again, poor craftsmanship!

This is my second ARE topper. My first one was on a 2013 F150. I traded in March on a new 2018 F150. On both vehicles the fit and finish was perfect. I bought both of these from Truck Trends in Champaign, IL.
