Fixed Top Picture Thread

As one who has spent a good amount of time looking for exterior and interior shots of fixed top rigs as the ratio of fixed tops to pop tops is very low. I thought it be good to have a place where people can post some pics specific to fixed tops and see a variety of styles and interior layouts all in one place, hopefully saving some research time a put that effort into daydreaming and planning.
Some questions that i've had that really helped to see pics were, how high to go? Sloped back or super camper style? roof rack? upper bed or all cabinets, front or rear upper bed etc.
Some sources for high tops include: Fiberine, Tufport, SMB, MSD, Sampson and the wreckers. Any others?
Here's some that have inspired me, these members could certainly post more pics if they'd like. I'll post more that i've come across.

Here's a start.

Ya certainly hope some owners chime in with interior shots, but i'll post some that i have as well. Mine like yours is a 50 layout and I have gutted it, the fibre board cabinets have rattled apart or swelled from moisture, so i to am redesigning

The high tops look great, but I just noticed that I really like them on the EB's and not the RB.
