This is great. I just showed my wife and much to my surprise she said she would rather have a set up like this than the giant toy hauler we had built. Go figure.
We can explore the other planets later.

We ended up selling this cap to another member on this forum as we swapped out our bed for an Aluminum Flat Bed. But here are some photos to show you what I was talking about. These were taken the day it was getting installed at the shop
Drivers Side with the Tool Box
Passenger Side with the full length Win-Door - Awesome option and so worth any extra expense
Double Barn Doors - You can see how deep the tool box comes into the truck bed. It's not all that big, but great to store recovery gear and extra tools that you don't want down in the bed.
This combo is really nice as you can work out of the back of the truck and have an awning over top of you while cooking or dressing
I went with a DCU setup on my tundra as well. A little different side door format (all open), and the big single door on the rear that opens up for shade/shelter. The yakima rack is a temporary solution, I plan on doing something custom.

I've had mine since '02. Very handy.
I don't know if you've mounted your additional brake/signal lights yet, but one thing you may want to consider is mounting them on the sides similar to where you had them photo-shopped only a bit lower. By doing this they are still visible through the rear door windows if you have the doors open. This is safer for things like stopping on the side of the road i.e. changing a tire. You'll notice them set up this way on a lot of ambulances/rescue trucks.

I simply love this set up, Ive tried togo the same direction with mine, My topper is all steel so its a little heavier but I can weld to any part of it which is cool, One of the only downfalls is the exterier accessable boxes make little room inside, so making the accomidations inside have been interesting, but we have a lot of fun in her...
