Just about every truck cap on the market is a practical rectangular-shaped box. Michigan Vehicle Solutions is breaking tradition with the Aero X. Obviously designed more for style than practicality, the molded composite top comes with glass side widows plus a lockable louvered rear window that opens wide for loading and unloading cargo. It also provides protection from the sun while ensuring an unobstructed rear view. The Aero X is currently available for 2015 and newer Ford F-150 pickups with 5.5- and 6.5-foot beds, but the company plans to expand availability to include heavy-duty and midsize trucks from the automaker, as well as for Chevrolet, GMC, Ram and Toyota vehicles. Pricing starts at $4,000, including matched-paint finishes. Get full details at www.mivehiclesolutions.com.
