How about a DiamondBack SE? It would be like getting a tonneau cover that turns your bed into a tool box.

Explain this please? I don't understand how a cover that can roll up and not take up any room in the bed limits your carrying capacity more than a tool box that takes up at least a foot of bed space?

A roll up fine. but its not secure and easy to break into. The Undercover is secure and can be removed in minutes. Unless someone routinely carries large loads, The covered bed is well worth the money. It is one giant tool box. I sold the UVS and looked at all the covers. The Undercover was the best in so far as security, water resistance, removal, and storage. A giant car trunk that can be left on and up for large items as well.

Both. Just use a smaller tool box that doesn't inter fear with the tonneau cover.

I'd go for the cover. I have a roll and lock and I put a nice large tool box in that fits under the cover when I need it. The roll and lock locks and when you need to move stuff that is big, just roll slide it open and it doesn't get in the way at all.

MAKE YOUR FINAL DECISION!!!!
I have a toolbox (aluminum tread plate, full width, gull wing lids, cb antenna in center) and voted for that. However, I see you're in Canada, so a tonneau may be more useful to you during the more frequent foul weather.

Toolbox=more secure with less storage.

Tonneau=less secure with more storage, less weight, more versatile, easier to get out of the way when space is needed

I vote tonneau, like the Access cover I have on my DCLB!

Regards,
Chris

I wonder if that would work with a tri fold I have been looking into one but I don't wanna drop 330 for something doesn't fit and have to give up the cover. Gas isn't getting cheaper.
