I just returned from a trip to Italy. When there, I saw a Nissan Navara pickup truck with a hard bed cap on it that looked unbelievable to the one that bondo made for the F150. It looked like this.




In all, I saw 3 of the pickups and all had the bed cap on it. There is a cap like the one shown that is available through Nissan that cost € 2.614,80!!!!! But there are other makers of the hard caps like the one above that look the same. Do a google images search on Nissan Navara Hard Top and you will see all the suppliers of the cap.

Oh, torr, I wish you hadn't posted that. I have a Frontier that REALLY needs that cap now! I was going to build one over the winter, but have decided to do an electric car instead, and having a pre-fab cap would have been great.

Emailed the mfgr about North American distributors...

If I would get off my butt, and take some pics of my setup, you would think mine is a factory piece...

Had to copy this over to a new thread - it's worth it so others who may not be following bondo's thread will see this. That's a slick looking cap.

badbird: yes, please get some pics and post in a new thread as well.

Did you guys get anywhere with this Navara hard cap? I'm thinking about getting a Frontier, and the cap looks pretty slick.
