I hear you. i picked up a 100R on CL but the 2 handles are not really what I want and thinking seriously about just ordering a 100XR now. The XL has different side windows which I don't like.

So if anyone in Norcal or Northern Nevada is looking for Leer 100R in white, 6.5 bed, carpeted and sliding removeable front window.....

Probably going to but an Leer 100XL or an ARE CX bed cap. Anyone had issues or luck with either? Opinions? Thoughts?

Please send pictures.

Thanks


Fits. Pretty good on driver side. Small air gap. Needto watch for. Leaks





This. Gap is. Way off. And this is. On a 2015. F150. Any one. Know how to fix this.

You might try and loosen the clamps holding it onto the truck to see if you can adjust it a little. I've had mine off a few times and have had to adjust and then clamp it down tight.

Default new cap with power locks. where to connect?

new cap with power locks. where to connect?

I've see installation guides that show cutting into the harness under the door sill plate for the lock trigger wire. I'm not wanting to cut into that harness (at least not under the warranty time). has anyone connected the cap lock to the lock wire in the tailgate? it should be pretty easy to run the wire and I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work, unless the wire is too small to engage two locks.

any thought or suggestions are welcome!

thanks Rich

Your best bet may be to find a used cap at a cheap price and have it painted.
