    I recently installed a Leer 100XR for my '06 tacoma prerunner. Today I found that, even with the latch locked, I can reach up under the overhang and push the inside latch up and open the lid. Has anyone else noticed this particular security concern, and what can I do about it? I am trying to find a way to fab a metal plate that will mount inside to the lock and extend out to make a barrier to keep would-be thieves from reaching inside and popping the latch. Any other thoughts or ideas?

    Thanks!

    Is it possible that the entire shell needs to be shifted forward? I have the XQ and the fit at the tailgate is very tight.

    Did you put a long bed top on a short bed?

    Unless you are rubber man mine is very tight. There is no way to put a arm anywhere.
