I just received my soft folding tonneau -- TorzaTop made by Advantage Truck Accessories -- today. Torza Top is very similar to Extang Trifecta but has different style clamps and metal. I hope this helps people who are looking for a bed cover for their 2nd generation Tacomas.
- Extremely easy to install. No drill no tools. Only annoying thing was that you have to remove the end piece of the factory rails on the tailgate side.
- Easy to remove in case you need full use of your bed. You can toss it in the cab and no one will even know it was there since all the pieces stay with the cover. You also have full use of your bed rails and cleats once it's removed.
- Very good at keeping things dry. I went all around the truck with my garden hose. It's not perfectly water tight but the water that gets in is very minimal. Even with a full bast with my garden hose, I could only get just a few drops in from the cab-side corners where there's a small gap. It shouldn't be an issue if in the rain since there's no way water could fall in from that angle.
- It looks very nice and almost seems like a factory option from Toyota. See pics below and judge for yourself.
- The metal feels very solid. I was doubtful as to its strength when I was researching for a tonneau.
- Lockable, the front two clamps can be locked with a regular padlock for added security.
- A tad bit more secure than Trifecta since the tailgate side clamps aren't spring loaded therefore have no flex if you try to lift it.
- As any soft tops, it could be cut if someone wants to steal your cargo. It only keeps the good people honest by not letting them see what's in the bed of your truck.
- Although the cover itself is lockable, it doesn't protect your cargo since your tailgate can still be opened. You'll need a locking tailgate whereas something like Undercover would secure the tailgate also.
- As stated earlier, you do have to remove the rubber end piece on the factory railing. It might not be an issue with long beds based on pictures I have seen on TW.
Truck is a bit dirty but you get the idea.
You could drive it in this position. It folds and locks into place for driving with some tall cargo.
Just one fold to load your cargo. You shouldn't drive in this position.
Clamps that hold the top in place... as you can see you still have full use of your cargo rails and cleats. The only annoying thing is that you have to remove the rubber piece on tailgate side of the rails in order to clamp down.
For intallation watch this vid... it has a premier fabric instead of vinyl though. You won't need that foam tape thing on Tacomas. There's also no flap thing to tuck in. There's just a rubber tube seal since our tailgates are slighty lower then the side rails.
This is the the HardHat. Basically the same thing as TorzaTop but Hard Hat has a hard layer under the vinyl.
Feel free to ask any questions... I'll do my best to answer
