    We sell them in our store...

    They are a ver nice value line topper. Not as fancy as ARE or LEER... but a lot cheaper. Quality is just as good IMO...

    What kind of prices are you getting hit with on them?

    Thanks.

    The shop I talked to had one on hand. Sierra model, sliding side windows, roof rack, dome light....... can't remember what other options. They quoted me 1100+425 to paint it to match my truck.

    The guy at the shop said he almost preferred the Ranch to a Leer or ARE, but I thought I'd see if any others have had experiences with them.

    I just purchased a sierra style ranch topper for my 09 4 door long bed. It looks pretty good and has a few cool accessories. I got the Gun rack that folds down from inside the roof. It locks and is carpeted. The salesman recommended it to me over the leer.

    Found a used, "bang and dent" one for $450 OBO so, bump for anyone with experience on these things. There is very little out there regarding reviews.

    Anyone have photos of them on a 2nd Gen Tacoma? I've settled on the Ranch Sierra but have to get the spouse's approval prior to purchase.

    Bump, anyone with a recent review of this brand? I can't find diddly online about this brand and I have a cap retailer recommending them to me. I like the price but would like to know I'm buying a good product also. I'm looking at a Ranch Sierra cap.

    I picked up this Ranch top used a few weeks ago for a great price. Quality and fit seem as good as anything else out there. Taking it for paint next week.

    Whenever someone uses the word "topper" I think of Topper Harley, from Hot Shots and Hot Shots Part Deux

    FWIW, I think mine is the Premier model. It has carpet inside and has rails on top with Yakima stands on them.

    Yeah, yours is the premier model, it's the only one that comes with that style of windows.

    On mine, the third brake light leaked like a sieve. When I took it out, it was apparent that the hole was poorly cut. I put it back together with a bunch of sealant and it's been OK since.

    I don't think that they're particularly well put together, but don't know that they're any worse than the others.

    If you don't mind me asking, how much does painting one run? Am looking on grabbing one here in the very soon future.

    I got mine painted for $300 bucks. It was done at a local shop owned by long time family friends, so your mileage may vary.
