I am looking into getting a A.R.E. Tonneau for my 2012 Sport Prerunner. I liked the looks of them since before I actually got my truck. They add to the already beefy look of the Tacoma. I also like that they seem really strong and secure. I also like that they are colr matched.
I am interested in the LS II or the LSX Ultra. The LSX add's the keyless entry, carpeted shrould over the locking mechanism and a light which seems like nice add ons. I particularly like the keyless entry. Not sure it's all worth the extra money though.
Now I know these kind of tops are a hassle if you need to haul something larger. I'm thinking it would make the bed a litle more useful on a daily basis, much, much more storage space. This is especially helpful if you have the cab loaded with people since storage goes out the window then.
I believe the rails are still usable and the top is slightly raised to allow for extra height in storing things. I was hoping to add an OEM bed divider near the tailgate to keep things from sliding all over especially smaller things like groceries, a cooler or whatever.
I'm looking for some opinions/experiences especially from owners of A.R.E. tonneaus.
Thanks ahead of time!
