    Just getting started...
    Title pretty much says it all. Hopefully looking to either attract attention of a willing vendor, or maybe someone can let me know of one.

    Looking for a folding, tri-panel, soft tonneau cover for my `18 DCSB. Loads of em all over Amazon and such, but no one willing to ship to APO addresses. Surely a soft one should be under the 70lbs weight limit, and 120in L+W+H size limit for APO shipping. Pretty sure it's just that they just don't want to deal with filling out a customs form. :lalala:

    My only other option is to probably take a trip to the nearest Toyota dealer and look like a loon measuring up a short bed Hilux to see if there's a way to fit one for those on my Taco. :rofl:

    Any help is greatly appreciated! :thumbsup:

    Is there anyone off base that you can ship it too? Is the issue the APO address or just because its outside the U.S.?

    Well, the cover actually showed up to my APO box. The box was bent but the contents were not damaged. I installed it in about 30 minutes. Quality seems decent for what it is. It’s definitely not theft proof (easy to cut) but it should provide decent protection against the elements. I’ll give an update after a hard rain or car wash, whichever one comes first. I’m happy with it so far. I’ll upgrade it to something like a diamondback in a few years after I get back to the states but it works for now.

    After using the cover for a few weeks, I'm satisfied with the purchase. The cover has been through multiple hard rains and a car wash. The cover does a pretty good job keeping water out but it's not 100% waterproof. I did add some silicon sealant in the front corners and that almost completely sealed it. A little water gets in but its minimal.
