    No matter what you call them, post pictures of your truck with a topper/cap/camper shell/canopie. Remember, we're all the old buggers on the site since we have them! Need to represent the senior citizens!

    I like how your cap windows are wide and the tint is dark adds to the black wheels

    Thanks for sharing, I love the wheels.
    It sounds like if anyone has a cap on their truck and is not actually a grandpa they will still get called grandpa LOL.

    What can we do to change this? I assume that people are used to seeing trucks w/caps as having "older" drivers. Well all those who have posted so far are under 30 so @Jimmeh, let's stare down those people and get them to start thinking that caps are for young people too. Do we need to have a customized bumper sticker made to have our mission be known LOL?
    People are now telling me that my truck looks naked w/ out the cap so I'm just not sure.

    Hey whats up man, i got the 22s from my chevy dealership. They had like 2 other kinds but you can find them all on the gm website. Under wheels.
    http://www.gmaccessorieszone.com/Che...Silverado/2012
    They sell them for around $4000 dollars on there for the 22s but i will tell you i payed $2900 for mine because i buy all my vehicles from this dealership so they gave me a deal. The dealership pays $2800 for them new. Hopefully this helps some.

    Okay so another capped truck member under 30, I'm starting to wonder where people get thei perception of caps only belonging to older drivers. I do understand it comes down to functionality, maybe young people need that too?? After all couldn't we camp in a truck with a top like this??
