    Does anyone have the A.R.E CX Series truck cap? What do you think of it? Any PICS?

    I have been looking at caps recently myself, and the cx model is one of the caps I would consider. Between A.R.E. CX, and Leer also has some nice toppers you may want to look at. Leer model 100XQ, 100XL, and 100R look best for the Taco in my opinion. Leer 100XQ is made specifically for the tacoma, as the side windows are made to mirror the contour of the tacoma's rear windows,( if you have a 4 dr ), but it is a little more money than the others.

    I had an A.R.E. MX Series cap installed a couple of weeks ago. It's the taller model with 20% more inside volume over the CX, and fits my storage needs better. Will post some pics here in a few days.

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    Cap has been berry, berry good to me.

    I have one. I am not really a fan of toppers in general. I don't like the height/width restrictions for moving/hauling stuff. The reason I got it, was because I take my dog with me a lot, so I needed something to keep him out of the cab, and out of the elements when I take him with me.
    But it has grown on me, I like the look of it. The fit and finish on it is really good. When I ordered it, I got carpet on inside, sliding side windows with screens, and fold down front window.
    Having seen some members on here with the MX series, makes me second guess my decision of the CX. Just for the fact it is a little taller, and looks better than I thought it would on the Tacoma.

    Thanks guys.
    I'm leaning more towards the CX series. I love the look and have a dog as well.
    I can get the V series for $250 cheaper. Not too sure what the difference between the two are.
