Tonneau Cover

What's the best one? Price, function, looks?

Trifold?

Thoughts..

I personally don't like them because it limits what you can put inside your bed and you can't have a standard tool box.

I totally dig my trifold. I had the vinyl one first and that did well until a 70MPH gust of wind destroyed it. I now have the soild trifold and it's phenominal. It's pricey but very well built. Last year while watching fireworks I had my sister, my little niece, my girlfriend and myself on lawn chairs on top of my extang trifold and it didn't bow. Great product and it allows you to lock your stuff in the bed of your truck for safekeeping.

No. No deal. I think it was $799 but the place I bought it from gave me $200 back for my first one being destroyed by the wind. I purchased both from Alamo truck center in El Paso and the general manager came and talked to me as to why I was getting rid of my first one. I was already told to pound sand by Extang due to the product not being covered by 'acts of God'. So the guy took the old one back from me and dealt with Extang himself telling me his store was Extangs #1 retailer distributor of Extang products.

I love my Undercover. It is lockable, water tight, and light. I can remove it myself if needed and is removed in 5 min. You do not have to worry about scratching it either.

I have a Pace Edwards Jack rabbit cover on mine, its an aluminum roll-up with a vinyl covering it works great. Its lockable at every 12 inches which is great for different loads

That's whats going on mine when the time comes for it. If you need the whole bed it folds up vertical against the rear window.

I had the same cover on my F450 and loved it.
