Gonna order a Snugtop Rebel with the Yakima slider rack system. I was told that reinforcement isn't really necessary unless hauling lumber and stuff. Does that sound about right?

I'll mostly be using it for surfboards and occasionally for a Rocket Box with sleeping bags and pads (nothing too heavy).

I think most racks are good up to about 150 lbs. I have the Dewalt 400 lb rack (Leer 100RCC) and I love it. I bought it primarily for use with an RTT, but it's turned out to be extremely handy for bLowes and HD runs. In fact I'm selling my RTT and moving to a different truck and I plan to buy another of the same shell/rack just because it's so damned handy.

After many missed opportunities and the few that are for sale and Trust me I have been looking on Craigslist every chance I can.
Does anyone know all the models that would fit my 09 AccessCab? Like would a topper from a 98 Ranger or 2000 Nissan fit? or even from an earlier model Tacoma. I just don't see many listed for Tacomas and Im not into paying new prices.

Thanks

I wish I could find a deal on one but I don't see that happening anytime soon...

So... I think I've decided on the Leer 100XR. (Quoted $1880 w/tax)

Options are:
-Keyless entry
-carpet lining
-side sliding windows w/pet screens
-front sliding window
-Thule Track

I will be using it primarily in winter for gear and the pooch and will most likely be adding my Thule box to the roof.

Thought about doing the 100RCC because then I have the option of doing a roof top tent but I'm not sure ill ever get it. I also like the keyless entry option and the price point on the XR. Looking to purchase within the next few months for fall and winter. Read through the thread and got some good info. Hopefully I'll be posting up some pics soon!


Please comment on the proposed set-up, what you would change and the price.

honestly my thoughts are.. get the pet screens.. they will save your real screens from dog paws.. and add extra security as they are plactic coated steel. Also from experience.. dont get the battery powered led light.. it wont ever work.. this time around I did the 12 volt.. and being able to see at night in the back now is kinda nice. Lastly im not sure about the leer.. but make sure whatever cap your getting has a rain gutter.. so that when you open the back glass all of the water doesn't pour into the bed.. that sux.

Lol ^ (previous post) never gets old!

Yeah I read about the rain gutter but only after I talked to a few dealers. Have to look into that. But all the options I listed are included and what I had priced out. It does come with the 12v and it has the 3rd brake light. Seems like a decent deal and from reading it seems like the right options.

drop down front window is a good one too.. didnt see that listed.. but its the only way to clean the windows between the shell and the truck. Price seems very fair. one thing to think about.. I have read that the leer sliding windows do not line up with the tacoma's.. meaning you cant open the windows and let your dog stick his head in.. dont know if thats changed.. but its one of the reasons I chose snugtop.

I didn't get the keyless because I didn't have room for this in my pocket. Maybe they're smaller now. Also would have gotten the grey head liner instead of the black, it's so dark in there even with the light on.

Interesting... That's the main reason I wanted the slider. Have to look into that. Thanks

No snugtop dealers this way. ARE and Century are close though. Looked quickly at ARE.

Digging the sticker on the far left.

Here's my camper shell. It's an Mpulse, came on the truck. Doesn't match, obviously enough, but hey, it works. I took it off shortly after I started driving the truck. Looks so much better without it, and I can fit more scrap metal in the bed without it.

Another thing I forgot to mention/ask was... Has anyone done a lift hoist mount on the roof?

I thought it would be convenient and easy if i had 4 eye bolts attached to the roof so I just pull in the garage, attach it and use my pulleys to raise and lower it. I like the idea for quick and easy changes so if I need to haul stuff (in my huge long bed) I can just pop it off.

Be nice if dealer would offer this so it would be covered under warranty...

Looked for about a month for a matching cap for my 13. Found a couple caps that would fit (need one for 05-13) but not a color match. Ordered an ARE cap style CX with the roof rack and drop down front window. $1,750.00 plus tax. One caution I would give anyone shopping for a new cap is ask up front about the dealer honoring the coupons offered by the manufacturer. I had a valid $50.00 off coupon from the manufacturer and the dealer wouldn't honor it. Kinda felt like I got the shaft on the deal but if I wanted the cap I had to pay. Would have much rather found a used one that matched my truck. If you buy a new cap and then find out you don't want it you would be lucky to sell at 50% of what you paid for it. Let it get 3 years old or so and you will be selling at 25% of what you paid.

Got my Leer aluminum shell last week. Not the most attractive and not much cheaper than fiberglass. BUT, it only weighs about 75 lbs and I can take it off by myself and store it outside without it getting effed up. I got a 4'x6' recycled rubber doormat from Home Depot for 30 bucks and made a bedliner so the doggies won't slide around back there
