I just bought an H3T, and would like to purchase a slant back cover made by Snugtop. My local HUMMER dealer wants $3,800 for one, and the closest Snugtop dealer is 400 miles away.
I found a couple of places willing to sell the covers for $2950, but shipping would be between $600-800, which ends up with an all-in price comparable to going to the HUMMER dealer. It's hard to justify spending close to $4,000 for a truck topper.
Here are my questions:
First, has anyone found the slant backs for less than $2,950?
Second, are they hard to install? I assume it would take two or more people to lift the topper onto the truck. Also, the top has an integrated brake light, which must connect to the vehicle's wiring system.

i'd imagine a caps a cap, it probably clamps down? they look cool but for 4000 what would you use it for? bling factor? if you have a tall garage you could use pulleys to raise it? or grab a buddy, i use to do mine by myself but that was 20 years ago.
1 I was told you could only get it thru the dealer, heard the same for the diamondback cover as well.
2 I saw 1 @ the dealer & yes it just clamps on like any other topper & there is a wire harness for the brake light & interior light, didn't see how it was hooked up though
You can purchase it from a Snugtop dealer it doesn't have to be the dealership. The local snugtop dealer can get them anyway, I was going to get one up til the point they said it would be 2995.00 installed.
$2995.00 is a good price for this. Snug top does not offer there dealers much margin, they only make around 10% on this price. I would look to buy one at a local snug top dealer as most will include installation for you at no charge. There are no other manufactures that I know of that makes the same type of product as this right now.
I think I am going to order a slant back topper tomorrow. It's too bad none of the HUMMER dealers within 200 miles will price it anywhere close to MSRP. It will be cheaper for me to pay $600+ in shipping. I will let everyone know how the purchase goes, and try to post some pics of the installation.
They are super slow to produce them, and right now are on backorder w/ no ETA...some plastic piece from an outside supplier is holding up production. If you can find one already built, go for it. If you have to order it, plan on waiting a few months. Sucks.
