    I have shown my fair share of pics here ;), now it's time to help a brotha out. I (hopefully) am going to buy a shell tomorrow. I really liked the Undercover tonneau, but it limits the things I want to do....costwise, I found that for around $300 more than an Undercover, I could get a decent Leer shell.

    I am thinking about getting a Leer 100R ($1075) with the adventure package ($514). I am also going to try to get a gun box installed in mine.

    This is the shell from Leer's website. There are better looking shells, they're just out of my price range. Post some pics of your shells and provide some details (options, likes/dislikes, cost, etc) and advice if you have it. Thanks guys!

    Yeah, on my investigations, I found that the price of the toppers, and tonneaus, etc were just a few hundred less than a shell.

    Found the tops to be impractical, since I had to remove them for a large item, so I spent a little more on a shell.

    Will post pics when it's here in 3 weeks. OH, got a A.R.E., Z series.

    ARE Z's...those are great looking shells, what was the cost? Do they have all the options the Leer's do?

    The Snugtops are sweet, dealer option on new tacos, and hella expensive. The Super Sports start at over $2000. Way out of my price range, but damn good looking.

    Leers are really good shells. After I blew $1700 on the Snugtop (I really dug the style) I learned that the leers have all the fit/finish and quality materials that mine has. for LESS! (but I hadda have them cargo bars on top that nobody else has:D)

    Ridge, your Snugtop looks bad ass. I am going to get the factory installed Thule Tracker II rack if I buy the Leer...we'll see,
