    Alarming situation! I can not get my hands on any Toyota make/brand Tri-fold Tonneau cover anywhere. The dealer wouldnt sell me one unless I bought a truck WITH the cover already included on the Monrony Label build. The one I bought happened to not have one as part of its TRD 4x4 Sport package shortbed. They will not order or sell me one or even back-order one. Went to the top of their food chain and answer was no, we don't know how to, it's not available, and we can not sorry, go buy a 3rd party one. (I want the Toyota brand one) I have cash in hand and no one wants to sell?!!

    Any one selling one? Know where I can buy one? How the hell do i get one?!!

    check the buy/sell thread. They appear there every now and then but few will ship.

    technically, you can order all the individual parts and piece together the cover yourself, but you'd be looking at over $1,500.

    Yep, that's what I found as well. If you really want it you'll need to either (a) order the truck with it, (b) find a dealer willing to swap parts around and reconfigure a truck thats on the lot or in the pipeline, or (c) buy one from someone who doesn't want theirs. They do pop up fairly regularly it seems.

    I dont know why people like this cover so much. Its a horrible design. It doesnt fold up to the window, meaning you lose about 1 1/2 feet of high storage space. Aftermarket tri fold covers fold all the way up to the rear window, have a low profile design, and are about $800.

    I had the like situation, ordered my Taco in January with a Tonneau cover but when it was delivered in Febuary no cover! Stealer ship told me they don't do Port install anymore! and I see a lot of Taco's lately with covers installed WTF!!I bitched about it and they tried to sell me a Extang 2.0 for over a grand! I told them to piss off and ended up getting a tonneau cover from a fellow TW member! I still see Taco's on the lot and it's $650 for the Oem cover just like I was quoted in January. Good luck!!!

    I bought a roll up, TruXedo Lo Pro QT from AutoAnything.com for $395.21 w/free shipping over the weekend. You can get them on chat or call them on the phone and they will sell well under the prices they have listed.

    Having owned the factory tonneau and willingly given it up I think you'll find far better covers in the aftermarket.

    I got a truck with the cover because I had no other option but to get one with one installed, even though I placed an order for the truck.
    I took it off for a while for a change of looks and ended up losing the retention bolt. Called a few dealership parts departments and none of them sold it or even had a part number. They didn't even sell the cover. Part guy told me it wasn't installed on port (even though I'm pretty sure it is) and said that dealerships send off the trucks to third party installers to install the cover. Sounded like BS to me considering that the part is a Toyota OEM part.

    Like gpb said, you might be able to convince a dealer to sell you a cover off one of their vehicles on the lot. Or go there after hours with some tools. Just kidding. Don't do that. Seriously.

    I'm hearing how much of a pain in the ass it is to actually install one of these Toyota OEM Tonneau's with cutting into the bed plastics and all.
    If I were to break down and go aftermarket...what would you recommend? and any that function well with bed racks/bed rack overland tents?

    My local dealer removed mine and paid me a tiny $$ for it. But I'm pretty sure no one would want to ship one across the country. Take a serious look at the Leer tri-fold if that is what you really want. It looked like a far superior design to me.

    We use this one on all our vehicles at work and our customers vehicles. We dont get a kickback from them its just it has been the best one we have used.

    It should work with bed racks, just need to make sure the height of the rack and how it is mounted. Each fold is about 1 1/2 feet so as long as the rack clears that you should be good. If the rack mounts inside the bed or on the bed rails, it will however not work.

    The thing that is better with this than the factory is it will fold all the way up to the rear window (blocking rear window view) but instead of losing 1 1/2 feet of storage space you only lose about 3 inches. This one also sits flush with the bed unlike the factory where it sticks up about 3/4 inch.

    I believe there's a tonneau cover review thread which might help you. IMO I think after market is a better way to go. Good luck

    Should have put you location to begin with, but here you go - halfway between LA and SD

    http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/pts/5750844996.html

    If you do purchase from this person, see if you could swap out bed rails, because they are different (or just cut your to add the bed brackets)

    Also there are rubber gaskets/seals at the ends of the front bulkhead rail on the trucks with the OEM tonneau that you'll want.

    Yeah see how cheap they are going on Craigslist from previous owners? Thats the sign... they are not the best covers tri-fold or not. I have one... it already has a broken piece at one of the folding sections and they leak and with the broken piece leaks a lot. Not that I care about water in my bed but just sayin..
