    The leer installer directions instruct them to tap into the running/parking lights in the rear of the truck for the dome light. So you have to have the lights on the truck turned on for the dome to work. Stupid way to do that. One of the reasons I wired mine myself. Don't know if that applies to snugtop, but you could try turning the lights on. Other things to try: does the ignition have to be on? Did they tell you where they tapped in to power?

    So I called them and they told me it runs on 4 triple A batteries. Popped the casing off and sure enough. It takes batteries o_O

    So when I take my truck to Montana this winter and it's -10 how is that going to go over :rolleyes:

    Ahh so you and I are in the same boat. I take mine skiing in Colorado. I can't remember what the wiring would have cost but I think I can rig something with my power already set up with my USB charger.

    Loose nut behind the wheel.
    Lithium batteries - much better in extreme cold than alkaline. Although I agree, wiring would be better.

    What if you're a big guy and a big girl and a kid that will also be tall ( I didn't say fat ;) ) best options for topper and RTT? Is there anything on the market that will hold say 700 pounds?

    Awesome. Thanks! If it's not included, no biggie. I was going to run a cable direct from the battery to a switch console in the bed. I could easily add few ports from there.

    It's 500 rolling weight, not static. If it were me, I would go with 3 footers per side in tracks and use a Rhino Rack to evenly distribute weight. Then look at one of the Big RTTs made by CVT. Might be a snug fit but the bigger RTTS are roomy. I would stick with SnugTop. But that is just my opinion.

    ARE Overland Shell. Windoors with windows, LED lights inside, Dual T Locks.

    Think it looks great on the truck and happy with the quality so far!

    Got a side pic? Mind my asking what you paid? I'm considering the overland, with similar options that you have on yours.

    Thanks. Looks great!

    Yea shells are overpriced for what they are, but I love them. I had a Leer XQ on my 2nd Gen which is Leers top shelf topper.

    I thought I found a unicorn today on Craigslist, lightly used quicksand Leer 100R for $1k. It's their base topper but looked good. Turns out it was for a long bed. :annoyed:

    That's the thing, by the time I found one it was going to cost me somewhere else. Also I needed the roof rack for my surf boards!

    So i just ordered the same topper and I was thinking of doing a roof top tent, but they said the weight capacity was 300lbs. Are you worried about that or did you do something to get around it? Thanks!

    What did the V-series with dual windoors run you? If you don't mind my asking that is.

    Nice. Can you tell me how they wired in the power block and overhead lighting? I’m wondering if they will still work off battery power when the truck is switched off. Thanks.

    All of mine works while the truck is switched off, but I also got the installer to add an Off Grid Engineering Side by Side Dual Battery System and told them specifically to make all lights, extra power, etc. on the "House" battery; not sure how they wire it for a normal, single-battery setup.
