    Some of you may ask "why for pick up truck..." but im trying to find a decent priced car cover for DCLB(Black), and heres why.
    Here in Japan, not many people can afford garages because of limited space and cost.
    I happen to travel a lot for work and cant really take care of the car when im away. Plus my apartment is located right on the school zone, so a lot of elementary kids come by.
    My neighbor experienced scratches and writing on his car a few months ago and was obvious it was done by a kid(s), and since my car is arriving soon, I was thinking to purchase a car cover just so i can feel a bit better.
    But wasnt sure what would be the best cover. ebay had a few options and some of them are over $300 which I dont really intend to spend.

    Expensive one @ $539.99
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/CoverKing-A...ash=item3ad2d82148:g:fNwAAOSw4GVYMoCQ&vxp=mtr

    Cheaper one @ $89.99
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2016-TOYOTA...ash=item4afa56590c:g:Rw8AAOSwh-1W2Ni0&vxp=mtr

    Looking for something less than $200, preferably less...
    What are you using?(if anybody was using)
    Any recommendations or suggestions?

    BTW, I will be installling AVID Front bumper guard and Steelcraft Rear Bumper guard, so the whole length of the vehicle is a bit longer i guess...

    Figured I’d bump an old thread instead of posting a new one. My TRD Pro is coming soon and I won’t be driving it much so I plan on leaving it covered mostly. Leaning towards a California Car Cover if anyone has experience?

    Get one from Amazon, it has easy return.
    there are so many type covers, it’s going to be around 100bucks, but some seller has awesome covers. I try 3 cover for my motorcycle month ago.

    Do you remember the brand? I have a XYZCTEM cover for my Ducati I’ve been happy with but they don’t make car covers. I mostly just want to make sure I find something that does scratch the truck.
