Well I have been debating on putting a bed cover on my truck as I always have stuff in the bed that I want to keep dry.. my tool box in the bed wasn't big enough.. so I debated on roll and lock, leather cover, fiberglass lid...

leather cover cheap but no security, folding cover can lock but dont like the look of the panels..

roll and lock and fiberglass lid can secure the contents but my bed rails are still exposed with the roll and lock and they now have holes from the tool box I had in it and the ladder rack it use to have as a roof truck... both covers around $1100-$1200...

after much debate and looking around I found a Raider low profile bed lid that came off a 2007 King Ranch bought by a contractor for his work truck and he wanted a cap so he put his cover in the classifieds and sold me his cover for $500 ... and guess what his truck was white too I didn't even have to paint it .. one single handle on the back it has the carpet on the bottom side too...

:thumb:

Im happy I did have to drive 310 miles round trip to get it but it still only cost me $590 with fuel

thanks guys

the best part is even when it rains my stuff is nice and dry still back there :) so far I love it .. it will likely deter people from wanting to use my truck to move stuff now too, In some cases it will be a pita for large things I may need to haul but I do have a 2 bed quad trailer 8x8 and I always can use the enclosed if the stuff I need to haul is to big to fit back there

That cover looks awesome! I love my cover and think it's great for long trips with bad weather or if you keep stuff back there and are in the bad side of town lol.
