Truck Cover

1997 F-250 single cab, extended bed. Does anyone recommend a truck cover for this vehicle? I don't have a garage and don't want to let it bake in the sun. Any recommendations?

hard fiberglass tonneau would be good since it will probably never go indoors then, they can be painted to match the truck, kinda obvious statement though

Not a bed cover. A truck cover.

Truck Cover

I am sure they do. Just wanted to know if anyone had one that they use so that I can know for sure it is going to fit my truck. Truck Cover is maybe 150 bucks tops. Carport is more like 500-750. Big price difference.

very tru, but you could build one for like 2-400, if you got some 4x4's 2x4's some plywood and shingles or could do a metal roof, wouldnt cost much to build your own instead of buying a prefab model, but i see your point though

Check out Empire Truck Covers. They definitely have a cover to fit your F-250 and there is a few options as well (the Titan Quatro 4L is awesome!). Their websites is easy to navigate and will help you decide which cover to select based on your specific needs.

Hope this helps!
