I managed to pick up a old Leer canopy for a 1984 Chevy. All the measurements seemed to work so I figured I'd give it shot. It surprisingly fit very well. The paint was in rough shape (obviously). 4 out of the 5 windows seemed still very water tight still. I did however take out the front window and re-weather stripped the trim. After that I painted the canopy with bed liner to match my truck and give it a bit more rigidity. Replaced the back lock with a new one and bam, a totally useable canopy. Overall, fairly happy with the project, seeing how it only cost me $240 all said and done.

That's funny... It actually looks like it fits the Titan BETTER than it fit the Chebblie... :rofl:

Nice job on the color! :thumbsup:

Yup, that's my plan as well. I just need to tint the windows and start building the frame.

What frame? Do tell. My cot is the fold up kind that I store in the back seat, with the 0 degree sleeping bag. Not the most comfortable, but better than trying to sleep in the cab.
Are you building a part time residence with all the amenities?

My Titan KC LWB has had an older Leer wedge topper since 2013:



Does your Titan also have the 8' bed?

Hey dkmura,

Nope only the 6.5' bed. Thanks for all your help BTW for this mod. I did have to cut the back door with some tin snips.

You're most welcome! My 8' topper looked worse than yours, if you can believe it. It's kinda satisfying bringing these back from the dead and they actually fit (with some tinsnip mods) the Titan pretty well.

As for bed covers, you need to check them (particularly the back, near the tailgate) carefully before buying.

Since you did the install yourself. Was there anything electrical?
I put this strip of LEDs in the back top of the inside. It is a quick button press to turn it on. Very bright, better than the crumby light Leer came with.
