Default Got a Baja and need a cover/cap/extender for the bed

Howdy, I just got an 05 Baja Turbo 5-speed. I'm looking for a camper shell cap like Leer or A.R.E, a bed extender, and a tonneau cover. If I can't find something to cover the back I'll try making one myself I think. I'm also looking forward to modding it some day but for now I really just need to keep the rain off my camping stuff.

Maybe you guys will have some extra eyes you can help me with. I've tried the usual suspects, Ebay and Craigslist. Haven't had much luck.

Thanks and happy to be a part of the Baja crew.

Welcome! I've had my turbo for about a year and have been looking for a cover myself with little luck. You see a few come and go, but they're usually expensive and hard to ship. There's a write up on here somewhere i believe on how to make one yourself, otherwise try these guys. I think they quoted me $1400, but that's painted the factory color w/lock and everything.

Yea they are rare and hard to ship. I've seen a DIY here and there for it and I may try and make it myself. Funds are very low at the moment so fingers crossed it doesn't need any repairs and I can build a cover cheap!

Looking forward to one day swapping uppipe, exhaust, turbo, intercooler and tuning it.

Did you ever build your own cap? How did it turn out? I'm looking for one now too. Any leads?

I decided I didn't want one. It's pretty tough to make them completely waterproof and if they aren't then it's not even worth it.

I have a red snug top sitting in my yard. I took it off about two years ago. Seals around bars need replacement every few years. It's probably expensive to ship, but if some one is on the west coast it could be picked up.

Found one on CL today in Greensboro $600. You may luck into an A.R.E dealer close to you. The top runs about $2,000 color matched and installed.
