Great question, while the answer will vary depending on the specific use of your SpaceKap. However, a customer recently reported that his SpaceKap has been in service since 1994 and that he has just installed it on a 2014 GM.
We utilize a truck specific installation kit in the bed of the pickup. Firstly, this ensures that the SpaceKap does not sit on the rails of the truck but rather the weight is transferred to the truck’s floor bed. Secondly, it safeguards the SpaceKap from moving left to right or front to back. Finally, with a patented tie-down system we grip under the truck rails on all four corners so that it cannot lift out of the truck. No bolting or drilling is required.
Most of our customers opt for our SpaceKap Quick Ship Packages (QSPs) due to their 7 business day lead time and overall value. However, we do offer customization. If interested, please phone us at 1-800-363-0655 for more information (i.e. estimated time frame, budget, etc.).
Yes, the SpaceKapTM can be painted but we do not currently offer this option. Please check with your local garage and paint shop.
The deck is reinforced to support up to 350 lb. A higher capacity deck/overhang is optional. Please contact Fibrobec for more information.
Yes, with the use of our optional jacks, you can leave up to 1,000 lb of equipment inside. However, we suggest lowering the SpaceKap onto a solid surface when doing so in order to prevent injury.
When using a forklift, it takes only 5 minutes to remove your SpaceKap from your truck bed.
The SpaceKap was designed in 1992 to fit universally on all full size pickups with either a 6.5’ or 8’ bed (Ford F-Series, GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado, Dodge Ram, Toyota Tundra 2007+)
