Snug-Top or not?

I want to put on a truck cap but would like to hear some experiences with the major brands that are available. I have an '04 250 crew, short bed and am looking at the Snug-Top Hi Liner.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Racerman, I put an ARE fiberglass cap on my '06 SC/SB.
I ordered it with no side windows and color matched.
It also has a fabric liner, drop down front window & Yakima
roof rack. Very nice fit & finish and the cost was around $1,650.

I have a LEER, no side windows, color matched, this is the second one like that I've had. The other was on my Dodge and it looked as good as the day I bought it when I sold the truck.

Ya i want one for my long bed but the wife is climbing up my A#$ like she had a ladder, about how it looks like i should have bought an EX. but i tell her shell have a dry place to sleep

Now this was a superior machine. Ten grand worth of gimmicks and high-priced special effects. The rear windows lit up with a touch like frogs in a dynamite pond. The dashboard was full of esoteric lights and dials and meters that I would never understand.

But you can take the topper off to haul the big items she'll buy later, if you have an EX, you 'll have to buy a trailer and that costs more money.


I've built something that I use so I can remove my topper by myself in 15 minutes.

i have a 28 foot flat bed trailer that is far bigger then any pickup truck bed... i use it to move my tractor.

I bought the excursion, as i wanted to be able to carry 6 people comfortably with gear all covered. I could get away with a super crew, but who is comfortable sitting 3 across?
