Duke -
We have the Leer top with bed blanket, rod holders, light, triple 12v outlet and two clothes hanging pull down brackets and Yakima rack.
What have you added to your truck? We got the KR. Added 3M protection in several places, tinted the windshield and side windows (all legal) and replaced the ridiculous 26 gal tank with a Titan 50 gal tank.
Any other ideas?

Duke, looks like you had a very successful and exciting shakedown trip. We're looking forward to the arrival of our classic in Dec. We also installed a leer cap on our truck bed. That will be my main storage area.
Duke do you have the electric awning on your classic, and if so how did it perform for you?
Keep us informed of all the accessories that you add to your classic and truck.
Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. The best option that I have on my Leer top is the remote lock. It is wired into my trucks locking system so that all you have to do is hit the truck remote to lock or unlock everything. So sweet! I also have the tilt in front window so you can clean all the glass. I had the complete X-pel paint protection package installed on my truck. Complete front end, including head and foglights, fender flares, about two feet back on hood, rocker panels, door sills, door handle cups and edges. I also had the chrome door handles and tailgate handle off of a platinum installed with chrome tow hooks and mirror caps. "Love that bling!" Replaced the M+S white letter tires with "Michelin LTX-MS2 blackwall tires and nitrogen. I never lock my front hubs in manual, so I replaced the front caps with solid ones like the rear. "Don't like the holes!" I installed a rear sway bar, "Sulastic" rubber spring shackels on rear springs, helped the ride. I also installed a "Banks" cold air intake and monster exhaust, Installed Titan 50 gallon fuel tank and shield. Now to the Classic, just getting started on it. I had the three rear windows tinted with 3M, 25% tint to match the others. Nitrogen in tires, second sewer hose storage, I always like to carry two 10 footers. Stainless A-frame protectors, Robo foot on jack, Progressive Ind. hard wired surge and voltage protection with remote display, winterization valve on water pump, Insulated double dome on FanTastic fan, Changed out the 40lb LP bottles to 30 pounders and a shorter cover. "Didn't like the looks of the tall ones being above the bottom of front window!" I am getting ready to place a order on Monday for two new Maxim skylights. I cant believe the junk that AS uses? Talk about heat soak! That will probably finish me up for this year. Won't be long until it will be stored in a climate controlled building for about six months. And yes we do have the electric awning. It performed flawlessly during our 23 day trip. I like the new dimmable led light strip that they added for 2016. I got both options, the power awning and the solar package. Haven't regretted either so far. Thanks for the inquiries.
