Best Canopy, with picts too?

I am looking at getting a new canopy, wondered what everyones thoughts were?

Also a price?

Picts are always good too.


Thanks

What color is your truck? LB or SB? I personally really like the ones like Layson's got. They are so streamline and flow real nice with the factory bodylines.

There are several like Layson's here in MT on Craigslist. I'm not sure if they're still available but might be. I've seen one for a sb and one for a LB. I believe both were white in color but not sure. Very reasonable prices $500 - $600 range. If they were something you'd be interested in, I could pick it up and bring out your way later this summer.

Thats a good point Ryan, I chose mine because of the height. I measured the top of the handlebars on a Polaris 700 and wanted to make sure it would fit.

I bought a Leer. They have been around forever and are still going strong. IF you buy a used one, make sure the company is still around incase you need parts. I had bought a Stockland a few years back and couldn't get a new rear window anywhere! I paid around 2K for mine after it was all said and done. Check out some of the websites, I was able to get $125 off coupon from the manufacturer on mine.

Not sure if I quoted right.

I have a Black short bed. Looking for one that is going to be exactly like you stated "streamline and flow real nice with the factory bodylines."

Thanks for looking.

2000 is more then I wanted to spend I had no idea they were that much. I need one though. I could spend my life saving on stuff for this truck

2k was for a long bed, probably like mentioned above 1500 for the short bed. I just watched Craigslist and got mine for 1k and it was the same color. As long as you are patient you can find them for a good deal.

ARE and Lear are the best choices IMO then. I've done some looking but all I've found if longbed toppers. I'll see if Spokane area has anything.

I found the sb white one I saw. It's in Spokane. Looks lust like the one Mike (big poppa) has.

I'll pm you the link. I could have a buddy pick it up for you and take it to his place until you either go that way to get it or something. I will be going to Ellensburg in the middle of September so I could pick it up in Kompton and at least get it to the Burg.
