Honestly, I don't think you could go wrong with Snugtop, Leer or ARE. My personal experience with Raider, was not very good. Had the Raider on my 99 Tacoma and had constant water leak issues with the side windows. The dome light would constanly draw power from the batteries when it was in the off position. Back door wouldn't close right. When I bought my '05, I found myself in the same quandry as you, wondering if Snugtop was worth the cash. I really liked the look and features of the Snug but ended up buing the ARE Z series for about 250 less. Never had a problem with it.
