    I have the Leer, came on the truck when I bought it, very nice cap, well made. I also have the A.R.E on my super duty with the walk in rear door that is very nice.

    The 07 Access Cab I just purchased came with a Leer 100 series from 2010 and a BedRug. The previous owner sprang for the removable rear window and the awning style side windows, which are really handy if you're loaded up with stuff and have to reach something that's buried in there. I just wish that the former owner had included the optional roof rack mounting tracks too, for I'm stuck using the rain gutters to hold a Yakima rack to carry my kayak.

    Fit and finish on the Leer is great and the BedRug rocks. I'm looking forward to getting the whole thing out for a weekend in the Utah desert in the coming weeks.

    Just out of curiosity, do you carry your kayak with no mounts (just strap it down to the roofrack)? I don't use mounts, but get a little nervous without them...

    I haven't until now but I ordered a set of Yakima Hully Rollers and Mako Saddles that arrives today. I'll let you know how it works out. If it was a short whitewater boat I'd be less wary but it's a 15-foot sea kayak.

    I just set it up. I didn't strap the boat in - I put the boat up just to adjust the width - but the combination (especially the Mako Saddles) will do a lot to prevent side to side motion. The rollers make it a breeze to get the boat on the roof by myself too - just lay the bow on the tailgate, climb onto the tailgate and lay the bow in the rollers, then walk to the stern, lift and push. This boat weighs around 65 lb., I weigh 145 soaking wet and I wasn't even strained.

    Aloha Toppers in Pearl City. I'll definitely post pics when I get it installed. ETA is 30 April.

    It's very expensive but at the same time it's slightly understandable with the shipping costs out here.

    It looks like your shell has slid back about an inch or so...might want to get it snugged back up. Cool setup with the kayak though.

    this is my leer 100r, i had a leer 180 for a couple months, i liked it but it was not meant for the reg cab model and was contacting the rear light and the rubber seal around the upper part of the rear window so i switched it out for this one. i liked the extra headroom inside the 180, planning a 20000km road trip throughout northern canada the headroom would have made the living space a little larger but the cap was really to tight and annoyingly noisy with the contacting. even with it sitting as far back as possible it just wasn't working.. i got a good price all in all so can't complain. if money was not an object i'd have gone with the a.r.e. with the full rear door that removes the tailgate, that is a sweet setup.

    I paid about the same for my Leer 180. Had to add a wee bit of weatherstrip around the rear window frame to make it totally dustproof and waterproof. The Leer 180 is not a sophisticated rear window like some shells. Also, I believe the Taco with the composite bed is not as rigid as an all-steel bed, so it tends to bend outward at the tailgate.

    Had to take the Leer 180 back to the dealer to have one of the windoors replaced after 8 months (leaking water), but they were pretty good about it with a little "hands on" input from me telling them to spray it with a hose, not just look at it.

    Heh, I see dbcltmp went for the ARE MX. That's a topnotch shell.

    Mine was like that at first. When you loosen the tie down points, go around the topper from the outside and lift it up off the bed. Mine was stuck to the rails. Then slide it on all the way. However I do wish mine sat about a 1/4" closer to the cab...:rolleyes:
