Default OT: Truck Caps? Anyone have any conections?

Who makes the best truck caps? Leer, Century, Astro, ARE ? Any information would be great, Anyone have any conections on truck caps. Looking for a cap for a 2003 F-250 Super Crew (white). Anyone have a picture of a F-250 with a cap on it.

Thanks Kirk

KN,

Out of the ones you mentioned I would only consider two brands. The ARE is ugly as sin hands down. Some people actually like them, don't know why. The Century is crap.......I used to sell them in my store, I know. Leer, good product, higher priced, but worth it IMO. Astro, I have sold for two years out of my store with great success. They have been VERY good to stand behind any warranty problems.

Another brand I would consider would be Sportsman/Snug Top.

I would be more then happy to let you know what I price my tops at so you can compare. Hell, I'll even tell ya cost in case they're trying to screw you.

Oh yeah, I forgot. I agree with Rob. Buy local. It will be worth it if you have any warranty issues.
