    Canopy in Action! I must admit, I never thought I would enjoy a canopy as much as I have. Keeping extra/bulky gear dry is super easy. The side Windoors are VERY helpful when accessing packed away gear. The added security is awesome!

    What a horror story. I hope you have not given up on the fight or at least get some vindication for their poor customer service. I have made lots of decisions based on YELP reviews. And your story is making me think twice about going with SnugTop.

    I have just contacted them whether/when the XTR will be available for the 2016 DCLB. I really like the tubular integrated rack. I had my mind set on that, but now will looking into Leer as well. They do not have the tubular rack but I think a fully loaded Leer will still be cheaper than a basic XTR - if they will even build one for the 3rd Gen LB.

    I see readers here are considering the Outback. It's a great looking camper and the vertical doors will save your knees from the tailgate. Initially I really wanted one but I like having the rain-shielding benefit of the lift-up rear glass and the benefits of the tailgate like a kitchen counter top. It's almost like loosing valuable square footage of the bed.

    For those of you interested the Outback, have you looked into Tradesman Custom Truck Tops?

    http://tradesmantrucktops.com/tradesman-gallery/

    They also offer a vertical door version for the Tacoma. I think it's all aluminum. The site says they been around since 1972 and will ship it to your door.

    Here is a shot of their Tacoma with vertical doors - looks bad ass. Are those SCS wheels?

    Sadly, I ran out of steam and have gone nowhere with this. I was at my wits end trying to find a way to get Thugtop by the short n curlies without harassing or implicating the dealer that installed my cap, whom I also bought it through. I'm open to suggestions, but I see no legal avenue through which to teach them a lesson. If anyone has experience with BBB or something of that nature, feel free to offer some advice; I'm afraid I have no experience in that realm. I don't even know if this company is on Yelp.

    What suspension are you guys running to compensate for the shell?
    taco BB 7.jpg

    I have a 2015 TRD OR DCSB 4x4. I am ready to purchase a lift. I am thinking of Headstrong Offroad Kit HS05BK-1 with OME 885's

    http://www.headstrongoffroad.com/headstrong-kits-tacoma-05-6-lug.html

    It sounds like this will suit me and my daily driver / weekend warrior.

    One thing is I have a snugtop shell.. extra 200 .lbs


    Does anyone have a shell with suggestions to compensate for the extra weight?

    Opinion on this : OME Dakar leaf pack is anyone running this with a shell?


    Thank guys!

    SnugTop is on YELP.
    http://www.yelp.com/biz/snugtop-long-beach

    A search for "SnugTop Yelp" also shows many of their distributors. Some people submit reviews of the dealer rather than SnugTop company.

    If I was your dealer, I'd make a deal with you... take it back and sell it on my lot and ask you purchase a different cap through me. And be very vigilant about making sure you get what you want and are 100% happy. In return, I would hope to get word-of-mouth advertisement and perhaps a 5-star YELP review or BBB recommendation, or a good testimonial to post on my website. We've all had experience with business owners like that and it's a breath of fresh air in today's environment where it seems everyone is just looking for short-term profit and fk the customer.

    Here is the YELP page for the dealer I will probably choose for a top - they carry Leer and SnugTop. This business seem to have it right and stand behind what they sell. So these guys are out there - you just have to make sure you establish a good rapport with them and ask tons of questions about post-purchase support and what-if situations. If they are rude and vague and unhelpful, go somewhere else.

    http://www.yelp.com/biz/a-1-trailer-and-truck-accessories-las-vegas

    Better Business Bureau - SnugTop main company in Long Beach. According to the site, they are not accredited by the BBB, so there is probably not much you can do here.
    http://www.bbb.org/losangelessilico...ers-dealers/snugtop-in-long-beach-ca-29001467

    SnugTop is active on FB and Twitter. While they can delete any posts you post to their page, they cannot delete references and messages you post about them on your own page. The thing about social media is that the more active you are (more friends and followers), the more effective your messages becomes through re-sharing.

    Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated. I will at the very least hit up their Yelp page. I don't have social media, so that isn't really an option for me but I'll do what I can through other avenues.

    I just spoke with Sam at All Pro and ordered the LOLA 2.0 kit which comes with a full leaf pack to handle the added weight of the camper shell. The full leaf pack will have a more progressive flex than the add-a-leaf. I asked about the expedition spring which is a $50 upgrade but he said I should have 400lbs of extra weight, otherwise it will be stiff and make the rear ride too high. I will add a rear bumper with swing-out carrier. With the tire on there plus the camper shell, it will be about 400 lbs. I will decide then if I need to get the expedition spring. Give them a call.
