    OK, done. I just ordered a Leer 100XR....can't seem to find a pic of one to post. I chickened out and didn't get the rack and gun box built in. Too much money. With headliner, and removable front slider it came to about $1500 w/o tax, installed. Now if it will only get here before 9/11 (1600 mile road trip)! I even offered to send nudies of my wife to the Leer plant manager to make sure they expedite it's arrival!

    Ultimately I will. My salesman had a badass '05 DC Taco with a Leer 100XQ and a Bedrug. I looked sweet. They are way nice. I believe he told me 400 something, installed. I think I get one later and install it myself.

    I am in Canada and we seem to pay way too much based on a dollar that is hovering close to the greenback. I was just quoted $1600 for LEER XL with sliding front window, quick connect, roof light and install..If I can save a few hundred bucks I am making a run for the border. About 1.5 hrs away.

    XL was 1600
    XQ was 1875

    Seriously? There many purposes, main ones would be secure/dry storage/hauling. I'll be buying one myself with a child on the way and two dogs.

    Yeah but even within Canada, I would think the prices would vary from place to place like they do here.

    They do vary. The highest I am seen is $2500 for the XL I amlost pissed my pants laughing then I asked if he was serious.

    $1600 is the best I can find.

    ^That IS nuts.

    Gotcha. Yeah, I mean, living where I do (Myrtle Beach area), I have to consider what would happen if I had to evacuate. That's one of my main motivations. Also, I need a place for softball equipment, won't be throwing that stuff on the back seats anymore. Strollers and other baby items would be another.

    Just bought a LEER 100R for my 06 access cab. Had 100R's on two previous trucks, never had a complaint. Ordered this one with the headliner (it's nice for "truck camping" and reduces road noise for the dog) and a sliding front window. My only (minor) complaint is that the slider on the topper doesn't match the slider on the truck - I'll take a picture tomorrow to show you what I mean. Other than that, it's great.

    Imagine Christmas time-and as usual you have overbought gifts. You have to haul all those gifts 110 miles to your son's house to celebrate the Holiday there. PLUS you are bringing the majority of the food. It is POURING down rain over the entire state. You, your wife, and other son are going. THAT'S where the shell is priceless! It has made itself very handy on a lot of occasions!

    NO way!

    Keeps the bed free of dirt and debris.

    Let me put my guns in it covered away from prying eyes of an open bed.

    Keeps stuff dry.

    Lets me camp in it, in bear country (there are specific signs that say you need a hard shell to camp, and not a tent in certain areas).

    Keeps me warm with a candle.

    Looks great

    Increases value.
