Truck caps

Anyone have any experience with a good dealer of truck caps in south central Pa. ?? I am in Franklin County, but will travel for a good deal on truck caps !!

Thanks in advance !!

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Re: Truck caps

Depends on what brand. I just ordered a Leer 100XR this morning from the Leer factory outlet in Milton, PA (Northumberland Co.). Jeraco truck cap factory/outlet is on a few doors down. Buying direct from them may cut out the "middle" man and save you a few $.

Re: Truck caps

I bought my leer at the Eastern Outdoors show few years ago. I saved a few hundred and got 2 extra with the special. I chose the carpeted headliner and front fold down window. I don't know if there will be a leer dealer at the NRA show now.

Re: Truck caps

Try Ishler's in Mt Joy. It's in Lancaster right off the highway about 15 minutes form the Harrisburg East exit of the turnpike. It's a small family business run out of the barn behind their house but they gave me a really good price on mine.

Re: Truck caps

I bought mine from the leer outlet in Milton also last month. I got the 100r painted the same color as my truck without the side sliding windows for 975. every other place I checked was 200 more.

Re: Truck caps

yea bob I was happy with them. I bought a new ram 2500 diesel. I only want the cap on from November to march to keep my hunting and trapping stuff dry and out of the weather. I couldn't see the extra expense for sliding side windows. for those that have caps how often do you open those windows. I thought the leer factory was real good on their price.

Re: Truck caps

I work right down the street from fox truck caps in Hazleton. I stopped there and got a price. I think he wanted almost 1500 for a comparable ARE cap. I quickly left. I like this leer cap I got in my opinion the same cap as the ARE I looked at but a lot cheaper. the owner out at the leer factory told me as long as I owned the cap he would take care of any problems if I ever had one. like I said I save close to 200 dollars by not getting the sliding side windows. could not imagine ever using them. just wanted one to put on in the winter months or if driving out west when I retire to hunt. if I draw my Arizona tag this year im thinking of driving out and bringing all my elk meat back.
