dawoodsman will become famous soon enough

My ARE cost a bit over 1,000 but I did get it on sale that saved around 300 or so. Basic model with side sliders and front slider plus drop down. I like the ARE better than the LEER as do most folks around here.

IMO, good looks and a topper on a new dodge design don't go together--that fat topped tailgate sticking out makes it impossible to have a topper with a clean look at the back. I'll wait to form a firm opinion but I am sure that shelf on the back tailgate top will collect a pile of dust and crud.

Be wary of any high or mid high topped topper (that rises above cab height) if you value MPG, they will cut your mileage more than a bit.
