    Hi folks,

    Forgive me if this is not the correct forum...I'm brand new to the site.

    I was wondering about shells for my '11 4x4 DCLB. I've had snug tops in the past and love them but might be looking to mix it up this time around. Do any of you have other makes and what are your opinions, good or bad.

    Just looking for the cleanest possible lines and maybe something a bit unique.

    Hoping to get your input as the info on this site is AMAZING!

    Thanks.

    I guess my main problem is I only really know of two manufacturers: Leer and SnugTop.

    Anybody know of other quality top makers or maybe where I could find a comprehensive list?

    Thanks again.

    TacoBS - I bought an ARE CX series for my 2010 a few weeks ago. I just drove cross-country with it and I love it. It has the side sliding windows, inside dome light and third LED brake light. It fits very nicely on the truck and does not rub/scratch the paint on the sides of my bed. If you have any other questions about mine please let me know.

    Thanks for the input Pete. Your truck looks great! I checked the website and it looks like they got some great products. Great fit on your truck too!

    I appreciate your input. Enjoy your ride!

    How much did you pay for it out the door? My 2010 Access Cab has the same one already on it and I'm thinking about selling it, just curious how much they're worth.

    I prefer Snugtop, has a more modern look with the flush fit/frameless windows.

    I bought mine from I guy I worked with for $800 and I think that was a good deal. He only had it for 5 months so it was like brand-new.

    I have a Ranch on my 2011 DC SB. I love it. Paid $1,070 out the door. Had it about a month now, no issues so far.
