Default Tall Cap for 2011 2500 Mega Cab?

Hi folks, I've lurked a while, but just now registered. This is my first post.

A couple months ago I purchased my 2011 2500 Laramie Mega Cab with the 6.7L Cummins. I really *really* like this truck, in fact it is the nicest 4-wheel vehicle that I've ever had.

Now I would like to add a cab for the back to keep cargo dry, and doggy comfortable. I also occasionally like to haul a motorcycle and to that end, I've decided on a tall cap like the Leer 122. Problem is, they don't make one for the Mega Cab. It seems that the Mega has a different profile in the rear, and while some caps may fit, the gaps will be all wrong, and in fact they probably won't seal correctly.

I've looked at Leer, Century, ARE, Jason, and Ranch, and none make a tall cap for my truck. They do all offer models that keep the height of the cab all the way back, and while this is better looking, it only gives me 38" of height for cargo loading. This is not enough.

So, any makers that I've missed? Advice?

And while I'm here, another quick question. I replaced the high beams with Silverstar Ultras, cheap, easy, noticeable improvement. Now what's the good bulb for the anemic reverse lights? I swear I can't tell they are on.

Thanks in advance, and remember Pearl Harbor.

I'd check out SnugTop and GemTop as two good brands that may have something that you are looking for.

I'd go with LED reverse lights!

I contacted Leer and Century, asking them about the possibility of just making me what I want. I never heard from the Leer people, but the Century people, after a couple days, were able to find pictures from a dealer in Utah who had installed the quad-cab force series cap on a 2011 Mega.

It looks real good. I showed the pics to my local cap dealer, a pretty OCD guy, and he agrees. So I ordered one up.

I'll post a pic or 2 when I get it.
