This Cap’s For You: The Overland Series from A.R.E.
This Cap’s For You
Over the past year, we’ve been fortunate enough to customize our ’12 Ford F-150 Raptor to better fit our needs. With a set of King shocks, Addictive Desert Design bumpers, and our 35-inch Nitto Ridge Grappler tires, we’ve been able to transform our truck into something that works even better on- and off-road. Using our truck as a base camp for photo shoots, wheeling adventures, and family trips to the beach, we found our truck was only slacking in one area—cargo storage.
While there’s no shortage of bed cap options in the aftermarket, we wanted something rugged enough to survive off-road, but still stylish enough that our daily driver didn’t look like a work truck. After searching the interwebs and our local bedcover retailers, we landed on an Overland series cap from A.R.E. As one of the largest manufacturers of made-in-the-USA bedcovers, A.R.E. has a wide assortment of cap configurations and options for late-model and older trucks. Our draw to the company’s Overland cap was immediate as it’s specifically designed for outdoor enthusiasts.
Since A.R.E. caps are distributed through authorized dealers, we drove our truck to our local dealer, Hall’s Storage Buildings in Wilmington, North Carolina, to get our cap installed. To find out more about the cap and why it was the right fit for our F-150, read on.
