I've always been a hard toneau cover person, but I'd go with the E-series Roll-N-Lock retractable aluminum truck bed cover

I went with a "Roll Bak" retractable cover and love it. You can still utilize the beds stake pockets if needed where most others cover them up. No outside lock to freeze up in the winter either which I like too. Have had it now for 2.5 yrs and have no complaints at all other than just a little water getting in at times. My last truck had a fiberglass tonneau cover which looks good, but a pain in the rear if you ever want to haul anything at all. I'll take this one over the others anytime...

I saw an article in the OffRoadAdventures magazine (4WheelParts magazine) showing the install of the Pace Edwards cover. Very nice and simple install.
