    So I just got my Leer 100XR installed the other day. Options were a fold down front slider, carpet, dog screens, and Thule tracks. Total was $1479 before tax. I installed a Yakima rack later. After having it a week, I'll give my thoughts...First, I had to get my wife to take it to get it installed. Mistake number 1. Installation was sloppy. They left long pieces of weatherstripping that needed to be cut, and there was fiberglass splinters all over the bed of the truck. They also forgot to reinstall my tie-downs which were a pain to get back on. Next, I was out in the rain and the window leaks like a mother on the side, so I will probably have to do something about that. Otherwise, I'm fairly happy with it, although if I had to do it again, I would get the ARE CX series. ANyways, I attached some pics of it, along with my dog who will be the primary occupant.

    I had a leer cap on my old truck.the windows leaked and the struts didn't last long.I bought an ARE topper this time.It isn't much better.The plastic lock cover split in two.It also has a lot of waves in the fiberglass.

    I bought a Raider Vagabond and really like it. I notice the rubber seals were long as well but was told that they shrink over time so I decided not to cut them shorter myself. Mine is for my dog as well, never even thought about dog screens oops.
