Review: Fiberglass Truck Cap Capitalizes Upon Space and Style

Mar. 01, 2003 By ORC STAFF

MASSILLON, OH - A.R.E. Inc. has an answer for pickup owners looking to keep the cargo in their truck beds high and dry - the K-Series fiberglass cap. Ideal for work truck owners and outdoor enthusiasts alike, the cap is a spacious solution to protecting contents.

The K-Series cap features an unusually high roof that rises an impressive 28.5" to 31" beyond the base rail, and extends virtually to the front of the cab - instantly outfitting your pickup with up to 1800 additional cubic inches of dry storage space. For improved visibility, tall double bay and side sliding windows are built into each side of the cap, allowing drivers to keep an eye on their cargo, and an eye on the road. And loading large items has never been easier, thanks to a roomy rear door with 39" to 45" of minimum clearance.

"Our K-Series makes it possible to transport sporting equipment, tools or any item too large or tall for standard caps," said Todd Roberson, vice president, sales and marketing, A.R.E. "Besides these obvious advantages, the K-Series is also an attractive and stylish addition for your truck. Whether you buy it for looks or for value, you're sure to be pleased with both."

On top of the standard features, A.R.E. offers optional skylight windows to lend the K-Series cap a more classic look. Owners also can choose to have side access doors installed, for improved cargo accessibility.

Additional appearance and utility options include sliding front and side windows, Nomadic(r) roof rack, interior light, fabric headliner, clothes rod, sport wing, brake light and picture front window.

"The ability to customize a cap to your specific needs and preferences is simply an added benefit you receive from A.R.E.," noted Roberson. "We want our customers be to 100 percent satisfied with their purchase."

The A.R.E. K-Series fiberglass cap is available for full size, mini, domestic and import pickups with long and short fleet side beds. In addition to the quality equipment, A.R.E. matches the vehicle paint code using a state-of-the-art factory painting system to achieve the closest possible paint match.

The custom built caps are also guaranteed to be structurally free from defects in material and workmanship, including the painted finish, for the life of the product on the original truck.

A.R.E. Inc. has been a leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and hard tonneau covers for the past 32 years with more than 800 employees at its three manufacturing facilities (two in northeast Ohio and one in Fernley, Nevada) and a network of more than 450 independent authorized dealers.
