…If you’re interested, let me know…
Yes, I‘am. But the Number wouldn‘t be the way for me. Because Time Gap between Europe and Alaska and also I think the freight costs would be a bit over the top...
Would/Could you please tell us the manufacturer of these lock covers for further google search?

Also, for you Smartcap owners. These guys have covers that will (hopefully) prevent ice from building up around the locks. They have sold a bunch of these lately and even mentioned that they have been shipping them out around the country. If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll get you the phone number.

And, the top vent I have heard let’s in water during car washes. They are using putty on the edges of the vent and they said it is doing a good job with the touchless car washes that we have around here. I’ll let you know how it works for me when I go next.

And let’s not forget the obligatory mutt in the back picture. He’s happy he gets to go on more rides now!

They had a few on a barge like 3 weeks ago, they knew I was interested and called me. It made it here Monday and it’s now on the rig.

on the smart cap has anyone yet color matched to the truck ?
?
As mentioned, they do only come in black for the Evo Sport and Evo Adventure. The Commercial cap is all white. We've done quite a few paint to match caps, but only offer that service locally to our shops. Here's a Superduty build we did with custom two tone paint to match Evo Commercial cap.

I’d love to see more details on that build. My SuperDuty is in order, but who knows when I’m gonna get it with this chip shortage.

Hi all, just recieved my Smartcap from @Stage3Motorsports on 11/10/2021 after placing an order at the end of September. Finally came around to installing it over the holiday and install went very smooth except for the wiring harness.

The instructions say that the harness is a T-tap that taps into the trailer 7-way. I saw that in previous posts that some of you were having issues with it with the ranger software, so they may have sent me their latest harness. Looks like the harness taps into a 6 pin plug, but I can't seem to locate it anywhere under the truck or in the driver's sidw taillight. Any help on where to find the plug to tap into would be greatly appreciated!

The harness is a Lumens 9370245

Thanks in advance :fistbump:

I just got mine late December and came with same wiring harness - from RSI factory said this harness if for non US/Canada market Rangers and was advised problems with new harness pin outs so factory working with their suppliers for solution - on a side note my brackets all seemed to short as bottom bolts on front and rear did not align with supplied bracket - did you have same issue? I saw on previous posts some pictures of front bracket that had all 4 bolts and brackets aligned??

Yeah I had the same issue. Still solid after a 1000 miles including a pretty crazy snow storm a few weeks ago. I meant to contact rsi to see if they sent the wrong brackets but never got around to it.

I talked to senior rep at factory and he said that as 3 of the 4 on front are holding will be Ok as is - as for the back they will be sending out a 25mm rubber spacer and longer bolts so back ones will have full support - apperntly ranger is eastern markets differ from the us and canada maybe because of plastic bed rails on top of bed

Btw, have had the Smartcap now for 3 weeks, it’s snowed multiple times and it warmed up enough to rain and then freeze, so far these lock covers have kept all ice out of the locks.

The Smartcap is great, had an issue not being able to get a harness from RSI, or at least not yet, so I just opted for hardwiring it in. I won’t be taking this off, so that’s no problem for me.

Today I added some seals around the tailgate because I was getting a lot of water in the bed during car wash. Currently sitting in the wash bay as we speak. When I get home I will be checking for leaks and any other openings that might be letting water in.

The top positive pressure vent allows some water in with the high pressure touchless wash, so this is annoying but not a deal breaker.
