Default 2012 Ram Big Horn with Leer 100XR - PICS

I know caps are kind of out of fashion. I'm a dinosaur, so don't bust my chops. This post is for the campin'/fishin'/ huntin' old school boys who couldn't imagine not having one.

When shopping for my "topper" (as we call them in Minnesota), I found it kinda tough to get my hands on good photos of the Ram 1500 with the models in which I had interest. Therefore, now that I got one I figured I should do my duty and post some pics.

I had a 100XQ for ten years on my 2002 Dakota, and it served me well. But my brother recently turned me on to the idea of "windoors", or flip up windows. That meant I needed to go with the XL or XR. I just used this truck on a family camping trip, which means it was loaded with stuff. Man, those flip up windows were worth their weight in gold. SO much easier to access things.

So far I couldn't be happier with it, but I have had one minor issue. The Leer models have a trim piece that covers the tailgate "spoiler", which adds a lip behind the window. Many other makes put this trim on the window itself. I couldn't live with that, one of many reasons I stuck with Leer. That said, I'm already having issues with the adhesive on this trim piece releasing when heated up by the sun. I'm working with my dealer to correct that, hopefully for good.

Hope this helps.
