Well, 2.5 years later, I was finally able to put together some saw horses to hold the topper in the garage and fab a tonneau cover for the bed. After two trips between San Antonio and Springfield IL I've determined the topper doesn't change drag significantly over a topper. There is a weight penalty, of course. So, the topper is back on! Truck looks better with it anyway... Getting some mounts figured out for the Kammback finally.
