    I have an '18 Silverado and had a '15 before this one with a Leer topper. Accesscover.com makes a tailgate seal and box foam kit to keep dirt and snow dust out . Takes about 45 minutes or so to install and works great .

    I have an ARE that came on a 2005 Chevy Colorado I bought here lately....

    I kind of like having that shell, surprisingly enough, but I dont see needing it for the purpose I bought the truck for.... I'd like to sale that shell, and have been told they are valuable, but darn I sure can't find a good source of fair value. I've seen $150 to $1200 listed, so what say you guys. What is an used ARE shell, much like the one posted above, in great shape worth?

    The issue with selling used toppers is they are so model/color specific. Now, if you don't care about color matching that helps a lot in finding a used one. I would say that if you have a well taken care of topper, then you should be able to get maybe half the cost of new.

    Forgot I posted this here.

    Follow-up. I got a LEER shell, sliding windows, front window drops down and got tailgate seal.

    Hunted North Dakota last fall with it and ran about 850 miles of dirt/gravel roads in 5 days. There was some dust that got in, but it wasn't too bad.

    I have not gotten a hoist installed. I'm still thinking about that. I've got 12' ceilings in my garage, so I have plenty of room to lift that thing up.

    Overall, I've been really happy with it. Dog was also really happy with it this last duck season.
