Help with 08 Silvy 1500 utility cap

    Hey, gang, been busy-busy, but have some questions.

    Our fire department is receiving a 08 Silverado EC/SB 1500 4x4 through a grant. I haven't seen it yet, but I'm trying to game plan some equipment.

    I tried searching for A.R.E. and Leer caps, but a.r.e. and cap are too short to search, and most everything else was partsbot...

    Do any of you have suggestions for a cap / topper? I've been looking at the contractor quality, for a ladder rack, and low roof / contour fit. Also, is a "short bed" still 6.5?

    I'm going to suggest a slide-out bed tray, too. Any input on Cargo Master or the like?

    I'm sure I'll have more questions, once I see it in person, but we'll go from there.

    Thanks a bunch,

    I had a friend that had a "CargoGlide" set up in his 1500 that he liked. It's not the kind of thing that works for me so I have no experience with it. They sell them at A.R.E.

    I've been calling the 6.5" bed the "medium" length but I think Chevy calls it "standard" as opposed to short or long
