    Hey ya'll. Just recently bought my first "foreign" pickup truck - '06 tacoma access cab 4x4 TRD Sport. In short, I love it! It's a joy to drive and will easily do everything I need. Previously, I was driving(killing) my wife's Tribute to haul a 6x12 trailer with motorcycle(s) and gear. I finally decided I need something bigger that could more easily handle the load without going to a full-size truck.

    A question for the gurus: what's the best route for a camper cover? From what I've seen, Leer seems to be a very popular choice. Are there any quality competitors out there? I want something colormatched, secure, well-built, and fairly easily removeable. Any suggestions?

    None currently, but I would like a better sounding exhaust and perhaps a cold air pack and some color coded step bars
    Great truck, you will enjoy and get good advice from the forum. Can't wait for the good weather in the spring to tow my boat.

    First of all welcome to TW. I just joined recently myself. I am not a guru, but I can tell you that my buddy just looked at 2 different toppers. A leer 100xr which is what I have, and an ARE Z Series. The Leer was significantly cheaper. ($800). Both were quoted with paint to match, full side window w/ 1/2 slides and screens, headliner, LED dome light, keyless entry, sliding front window. Pro's of Leer: cost,coupon for free headliner, mounting is done with a threaded mount that utilizes the first and last 5" of your utility rail. (Nice system.) Cons: Hinges are small (cheap) known to break. (Easily replaced, fairly cheap), proprietary parts, workmanship(so I'm told...no complaints with mine). Snug top makes one as well. ARE is a nice unit and spoken of highly. My friend has decided to go with the leer though. He felt the pros outweighed the cons. Hope that helps. Best of luck.
