Best Truck Cap?

I just bought a 2010 Tacoma Access Cab BSP and am looking to buy a hard cap for it. I was wondering if there are any suggestions for the direction to go in and what product to purchase. I only really know of leer and century, so suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm partial to ARE. Keep an eye out for used shells though. You can get one nearly brand new for about half the price if you're patient enough.

Leer, ARE, and Century are the most popular in my area.

I bought a Leer 100XQ. I've had it for 2 years now and it's great.

Find out what your local dealers are selling and compare features and pricing. See each on in person! Don't buy from looking at a picture on line, you cannot see/feel the quality of the product from a picture.

Also check out the manufacture's websites. Many times they have discount coupons available. I got a $70 coupon from the Leer website.

Thought I'd chime in again. Just picked up a used Leer 100R complete with windoors on both sides and a Yakima rack for $200 a couple weeks ago.

Good things come to those who wait. And search Craigslist for a couple months.

ARE "Z" series is what I bought after much research.

If you don't need one right away try and find one used. You will save a bundle of $$$. I bought this new as I wanted color matched and I own a longbed truck.
I like the hidden hinge design on the ARE.

They "ARE" very proud of their toppers...$$$.
