This post may come too late for some of you, however, I hope it helps others.
I purchased a Leer 100XQ for my 2007 Silverado. Looked great and all but the rear glass door didn't close quite right. After three adjustments everything seemed fine. This weekend the door fell completely off shattering on the the tailgate and scratching the paint on my truck. :( Could have been much worse if it caused a wreck. I called the dealer and they said apparently there is a set screw that can work loose and the door can fall off. News to me! The clincher is the shell is 14 months old and out of warranty (despite the three adjustments made under warranty). Tough luck on the truck paint and glass door but I can buy a new door for $ 450.00. No guarantees it won't fall off again though. :eek: No thanks Leer won't be buying anything else from you (ever). Something has changed down at the Leer factory for the worse. Moral of the story is: Beware of Leer products, check your set screws (were you told to do that?) and maybe Snugtop is worth the money cause I am out $1000.00 in paint. Maybe more if the door falls off again. Anyone else have this problem?

Thanks for the heads up, local body shop was trying to roll me. Went to a bigger town and got a much better price! Leer has still not returned any of my calls though. Asked for the managers and the whole bit. Nothing, no response at all. Broke down and bought a Snugtop shell. I think camper shells with solid glass doors should have through bolts not clamps to hold them on. My new shell, of course, has bolts from inside the shell through the fiberglass and into the glass door. If you're looking for a new shell check that out.

Well, that's good news! (not spending $1,000 on paint). It's too bad about Leer's customer service, and apparently low quality product though.

I purchased a LEER XQ earlier this year. After numerous return trips to have the dealer tweak the leaking front and side windows and I finaly convinced them to replace the old "new" cap with a new one. The windows leaked so bad the bed would fill up with water when it rained. The new cap has been better but still not water tight. What happen to quaily and customer service. I will never buy another LEER cap... I never had these problems with the LEER cap on my 85 toyota.
