Other LEER Caps Featured in Auto Manufacturer Booths


LAS VEGAS -- Nov. 5, 2014: SEMA Booth #31119 -- At SEMA this week, 700 tonneaus from LEERŪ, North America's leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and tonneaus for more than 40 years, are high-profile components of two award-winning F-150 concept trucks. Winners of SEMA Achievement Awards, a pair of Ford pickups feature LEER 700 tonneaus – one on a F-150 in stunning white created by MAD Industries, and a second on a F-150 in silver from TS Designs. Both vehicles are on display in the Ford booth (#22200).

The LEER 700 is specifically designed to accentuate the lines of Ford F-150s. High-performance features include LEER twist handle locks with flip-up weather covers, automotive style rotary latches, DuPont automotive high-gloss paint, LEER SuperLift system and an interior headliner.

In addition to these award-winning concept vehicles, LEER caps are showing up in other SEMA exhibitor booths. An unusual application for a LEER pickup cap is on display at the NASCAR booth (#22299). The LEER 100RCC mounted onto a Toyota Tundra has been modified to accommodate Air Titan II equipment designed to dry racetrack surfaces. The powerful equipment delivers air at a speed of 568 mph, and could fill the Goodyear blimp in 3.4 minutes.

In the Toyota booth (#24700), the LEER 100XR cap is also mounted on a Tundra and customized for chef Tim Love. This unique pickup is the ultimate tailgating machine, including built-in LCD TVs, stereo sound, gas grill and other event necessities.

"LEER products clearly deliver high value, but they also feature superior designs that some of the world's best automotive designers seek out," said Kevin Page, vice president of sales and marketing for LEER. "This year's SEMA awards and incorporation into numerous SEMA vehicles demonstrate the beauty and desirability of our entire line of caps and tonneaus."
