    I'm thinking it might look alright on trophy trucks (real ones, not Raptors, no offense to Raptor owners).

    But...

    Not for me.

    My friend Amy's Ford F-150 is a quite capable and fun vehicle. I would like one. It get 20mpg. Pulls a trailer. Parts are cheap... I drove it off the road during a storm, over a ditch, through a yard, jumped the driveway sideways and came to rest in their side yard. No fucks given. Got the heart rate down and drove home safely...

    I would love an aero cap if I had to drive a truck around all day. Then again, if you buy a truck, you had better be filling it with stuff like bikes and 50 bags of manure, otherwise you should have bought a small sedan or wagon. You can't haul 75 bags of manure with one of these, I bet. Then again, this is 'murica, so you need to buy the biggest F350 you can, then drive the kids to school, then complain about gas prices/mileage.

    From some angles it I think it looks pretty okay to neat, reminds me of the lines of some desert race trucks. But at other angles it looks silly, IMNSHO. I think it’ll catch on in some markets for some buyers for sure. I also think it’ll be a fad, like certain colors on vehicles has been. I do, however, appreciate that the creators have this “fuck it, we think it’s cool so we’re gonna make it” attitude. No Kickstarter bullshit, no market research, just “Fuck yeah!” And they went all in. Strong work.

    Functionally, I think it’s less limited than a tonneau cover. More room. One could still chuck bikes in there upright: put fork mounts at the front of the bed and have bikes in forward, covered by the topper. Not as good as Grampa’s topper though, which is how I roll. I don’t like the louvers, but whatever. I mean, I wouldn’t hoon any of that nonsense, TBH.

    It definitely looks different on a Raptor, what with the flared fenders. The article disses it, I’m on the fence of does it look better or worse?

    Also: not a new thing really? https://ecomodder.com/blog/aerocaps-for-pick-up-trucks/

    Those louvers though. SMH.

    The monkey doesn't understand ferd sheeple.

    A Ford representative who recently swung by for a meeting had one big question, according to Oliver: "If I need 10,000 this week, who's going to build them?"

    Not just Ford people... but Ford F-150 people. There’s more’n ‘em trucks ‘an anything else. And to be fair, you get the right package and they’re just fine as a truck.

    I don't get the point of this. With the spare tire out back it's not like it even gives you more clearance. It just makes a useful shape less useful.
