Default New A.R.E. Cap for Baja available



A.R.E.'s press release

No mention of price, and I still haven't decided if I like the idea of buying a vehicle with an open bed then covering the bed. I used to have a BRAT and generally left the cap off in the summer for carrying bikes but put it on for winter ski trips.

I sent ARE a message asking for the MSRP. I'll post it here.

Right; And it does look pretty tight and all but you're loosing the whole goofball Baja experience! It looks more like a confused Legacy wagon. And it surely interferes with viewing out of the ride, which is already slightly odd (that I notice anyway)

But still, it'd be fun to see. Are Brat seats an option for it? heh

hmm I really can't decide if i like it or not. I was considering the snug top for after we moved to ny (don't want to shovel snow out of the bed...) but I'd be really interested in the msrp.

good lookout!

Price through an ARE camper shell dealer is about $1,300 with about a two week delivery on the west coast. That was the quote. Pull up the website, enter your ZIP and you will have a display of your local outlets. Let your fingers do the walking.

This is NOT a new product but has been out for a while......my father works for ARE but I refuse to buy cap -ruins the unique look of the baja ..... price is about $1300- good people ----- my father is retiring after 20 years next June........ he claims that they have NOT made very many in their production plant in OHIO and could get my harldy a discount I much prefer the snugtop lid.

It looks like something a serial killer would want for his Baja.

Well, I'm not a serial killer, but I do agree that it ruins the unique look of the baja, which is the main reason I bought it. However, I also need a way to protect my mobility scooter from the elements and I see no other way. Just a tonneau cover would work if I could find the right one.

Shoot.....maybe I should complain to my dealer. No, mine didn't come with one, but I did buy it off the lot, not order it, though it was brand new.

The lid only comes if you buy turbo and the leather package if I remember correctly

Default Baja Cap Anyone?

I'm looking for an ARE cap for my Atlantic Pearl Blue 06 Baja. I don't want to pay for a brand new one though. If anyone has one for sale, I'm interested.

Im rockin one, The way I look at it the Baja is supposed to be a versatile transport unit. The shell makes it even more versatile. Now I can hold 4 ten inch base tubes in trhe back and with the pass through behind the back seat it makes the camper shell that much more of a bonus. I didnt think people actually bought the Baja for its "looks" anyway.
