    I'm guessing this arrangement isn't available with the remote lock?

    Unfortunately, Leer only offers the two-handle rear door on this particular topper. That's been my only whine about this unit, but I'll live with it.

    Looking very nice!
    I have an A.R.E MX series with dual sportsman windoors on order for my 2012 DCLB . It's good to see that they look good on the Tacoma.

    Are they independent? In other words, do they have to both be turned to open the liftgate or will either one do it?

    Independent. Both have to be unlocked and turned. You can pull it up from one side once they're both unlatched (which I often do), but each is it's own animal.

    From a contractor and security perspective I can see that as adding a small level of security, but I can also see that getting might aggravating right quick as well. There appears to be a key hole in each?

    Going to have to think on this some more. Thanks for the information.

    I don't find it any issue .

    The RCC is a badass cap for it's roof rack load rating and something as small as two handles vs one would never talk me out of getting it again

    Great. I just ordered an ARE MX for my 2012 ACC (12 volt light; two windoors). It looks just fine.

    I'm now having some buyer's remorse with my Leer 100R. Nothing about the topper. I love it. Just bought an 8' inflatable pontoon boat and no way will it fit in my truck bed without deflating the pontoons. Now I need a roof rack. Any suggestions on how to retrofit a roof rack on a new 100R or any topper?

    Sorry Rob , I missed your post , but everything is as above with the exception that in Canada the cap cost me just over $3000 and I didn't add the 12V outlets .

    I had an 8' pontoon as well...Ended up that the frame fit perfectly in between my wheel wells..Just deflated the tubes and slid them under the frame and it was good to go...

    For shuttling, I had a Yakima roof rack with Ratchet straps..Kept it up there fine.

    Yep, it's easy. Yakima makes tracks that you can mount to the shell.

    I used them on my 2002 tacoma and I have them on my new A.R.E.

    I think for the money I'll just deflate the pontoons for now and spend 10 minutes airing them up when I get to the lake. When that becomes too much of a hassle I'll look into the Yakima rack. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Debadged. ARE Topper. Tailgate mods, including locking handle. BAMF LCA skids.
    Here's another A.R.E. MX topper (with dual swing up side doors/slider windows). I've got the Yakama roof rails (custom mounted to spec), and I'll post later with the canoes mounted. :
