    Whichever has the largest glass area. Tacoma's visiblity sucks. You need every bit of glass you can get on the road. Both are good choices though.

    I have the XQ on my 2010 DBL Cab long bed. I also have a Bed Rug and rubber floor mat. Sorry that the floor mat is dirty, just took the dogs out.

    This weekend I'll be camping out and sleeping in the back, the Bed Rug is a great insulator. Also note the heavy gauge screens on the window, you can add this to the Leer windows to prevent your dog from scratching out the window screens. :thumbsup:

    Also do yourself a favor and get the pop out rear window with the slider window.

    Billies all around with 2.5" in front, TSB with Toytec 1.5" AAL, 265/75/16 Yokohama Geolander AT-S Redline Elite struts, Ultragauge, Yaseu FT-7900 radio, Leer XL topper, Westin nerf bars.
    I had a XQ on my 2007 DB. It looked great. Super slick lines with the frameless windows, but the windows barely open. They only just pop out for ventilation.

    I now have a 2010 acess cab that I put the XR on. I bought this truck for the 6' bed to go camping in the back and wanted a topper with more airflow. I love how the windows slide open so far. My dogs appreciate the extra air flow as well. I still think it looks great. It has the same mold as the XQ, just has frames around the windows.

    My vote is for the XR. Function rules over Looks for me.

    I bought the XQ. I liked the one piece side windows and the "hidden hinges" of the rear window much better than the XL.

    How tight are you torquing the bolts that hold down your leer. I just put mine on yesterday and was a little nervous to crank down on it since it is fiberglass. I also dont want the thing "loose".

    When I bought mine 2 years ago, the price diff between the two models was about $300.00.

    I can speak with a bit of knowledge here. I have a LEER XQ on our 2010 Ford F150 Work Truck. It is very nice. My only complaints are:

    1. We cannot stop it from leaking just a bit up front.
    2. The rear glass latch/locking leaves a bit to be desired.

    I have a Snugtop Supersport on my 2009 Tacoma Access Cab. I like the look of the side glass on XQ better, however, I feel the quality of the Snugtop is better and zero leaks.

    Whatever you buy you will be happy. I got very lucky on my Tacoma canopy. I found it on Craigslist "like new" for $800. Paid over 2k new for the Leer. Well I didn't my work credit card did.

    Those of you with XLs and XQs, could I ask you to take a pic of the side window open, and post here? Amazing, but Leer doesn't have any pictures on their website or brochure on how the windows open, or what they look like when open. I'm trying to decide between the two. The XQ is $250 more, but comes with the headliner, which is a $135 option on the XL.

    I just ordered the XR for my '10 DCSB after having the R on my 1st gen for almost 7 years. The only difference is the rear window is frameless and has slam latches on the XR.

    One feature that I had on my old one that is indispensable is the addition of the side "windoor" to the driver's side.

    The window is about the same size as the side screened slider, but the entire window flips open like the back window. Makes putting stuff in/getting stuff out of the topper much easier. No climbing in when something slides to the front.

    I like the look of the solid/frameless side windows but they are not practical for me for camping, dogs, etc. I even made a screen frame that pops in and out so the dog can hang his head out the window!

    I'll post pics when the topper is installed, likely sometime next week.
