Default 2012 with Leer Canopy pix

I know canopys aren't for everyone, but I thought I would post a couple pix as I've been happy with mine for the past 2 weeks.

This is the top of the line leer with all the crap... electric lock hooked up to driver door lock, lights, gear net, removable front window for easy cleaning, carpet liner, roof rack rails.. yadayada.. ~$2600 installed. I also tossed in a bedrug and added some quick release thule bars.. for carrying canoes, storage pods, etc.

I'm setting up a system in my garage so I can pull this thing off in minutes.. I really need it for long trips to secure my bed, wet trips to the mountains, trips with big dog, and carrying stuff on the roof rack.

At first I thought it looked a little too tame for the truck, but the design is growing on me. It seems to be quite functional and believe I'm getting slightly better fuel economy (+1-2g more). I took on some high(er) speed off roading and it was super stable. It weighs 175lbs so its like have a few sand bags in the bed.

Thumbs up so far.

I think it looks good. Rear shots available?

Not bad, for a canopy! There was a guy with a blue one that had the bed graphics extended up onto his canopy, which also looked great.

With a canopy, locking hatch, and bedrug, you basically have your own portable apartment now! haha

Interesting that the 2012 has a clear (rather than amber) lense on the front turn signals under the headlights.

Looks good, that large window helps tame down the impact of a canopy. How does it vent for when you are hauling around your dog(s) back there?

I like it except for the roof rack on the top. Is it easy to remove when you don't want it?

Looks good! I would get one but I have a problem with my bed hitting my cab already...I could only imagine what that thing would do with all the frame flex.

Ruger, its not the lens, its the bulb. See here for more info: Replacing the "Natural Amber" Turn Signal Bulbs with Clears

Andy, I dig it! Looks great.

Looks great and I know they are very functional! Excellent color match too.
