Century VS Leer quality

Opinions on quality of leer and century caps for our trucks. So far these are the only 2 caps available, and they are esentially the same price ($1,100) painted and installed. I would appreciate any insights!

TIA.

Don't know much about Century, but I am very happy with my Leer.

What year is your truck? ARE and SnugTop caps will fit a Titan.

Re: Century VS Leer quality

Leer caps are the best quality out there.

Re: Century VS Leer quality

I had a Snug Top on my Ram in Arizona. Very good truck cap. I looked for one here in WV/NOVA/DC area for my Titan but Snugtop said they have no distributors east of the Mississippi. They would be willing to get one for me but the additional charges were steep. This was three years ago and it may have changed. I have heard good things about Leer and this would probably be my choice although I have not looked into it much.

If I hear the lyrics to "Macarthur Park" one more time, I swear to God I'm gonna go postal!!!

That would explain it. I have had my LEER on for almost 1 1/2 years now and I have no complaints at all. I got the model 100R with carpeted roof and removable sliding front window. Hope you enjoy whichever one you decide to get.

Re: Century VS Leer quality

I have the Leer 100R also. I've had it since '04. My only complaint is the locking mechanism on the handles. Because I drive on salty roads, they freeze up and won't lock anymore. No amount of WD-40 can free them. The quality of the rest of the unit is first rate.

2004 LE 4X4 Crew Galaxy Black, Leer 100R shell, Chrome tailgate trim, Chrome stock wheels, chrome door sills, Zoomers cat back, 2*advance, 150,000 miles going strong. Traded on a loaded Dodge 1500 Laramie, heaven help me!
As my dear old Dad said, "You've got to stop and smell the roses once in a while". He didn't.... I plan to know the smell of them roses intimately.

Re: Century VS Leer quality

You might contact ARE and see when they are releasing the long bed Z cap. I have been looking for a used one for six months and so far I've been most impressed with the ARE Z and then the Leer. Of the used ones I've seen the ARE seems to hold up better but it may just be that the po treated them better.

YMMV
I'm still looking for a CC silver 5.5 ARE Z if anyone knows of one for sale or the Leer.

Re: Century VS Leer quality

I checked into ARE, but ARE was about $700 more than a comparable LEER.
