    Hey all,

    I am new here and my first Tacoma. I got the 07 reg. cab 4x4. Alot of my friends have had them and I finally got one. I am a hunter and I have known for a long time that you can't beat the little regular cab 4x4 for going through bad stuff and ease of mobility.

    Anyways, I need a tonneau to keep my gear dry. It seems that the Armor lite and Undercover tonneau are the best to fit my needs (that is debatable though.) From what I can tell the Undercover seems to be talked about more, but I haven't seen anyone complain that has the armor lite. I guess it would be nice to see if anyone has the armor lite and wished they had spent the extra $100 on the undercover.

    Any and all suggestions about these 2 and others would be nice, I am just wanting something that keeps stuff dry and safe without breaking the bank. I know they really only keep out the honest folk, but having locks is nice.

    I am familiar with both covers and would recommend spending the money for the undercover. The Armor lid although not a bad cover is exaclty a cheaper knock off of the Undercover, mostly in the hardware but event he textured finish on the lid looks of lessor quality.

    I just picked up the Extang Solid Fold. I was debating between the Undercover and the Extang but since I am always putting stuff in the bed I needed something where I could just fold it up for taller stuff and not have to remove the whole cover. Just put it on last night so I havent had much of an experience with it but the cover does look really nice on the truck.

    I have the Undercover. Before I settled on this one I had also checked out the Armor Lid. They both seemed to look and function the same. The Undercover has formed webbing on the underside for strength; The Armor Lid didn't. Therefore, I couldn't see the Armor Lid being as strong as the Undercover.
    That was my take on the two products. I bought the Undercover and am very pleased. The bed stays dry...only when I've sprayed water at the seal during a wash, have I seen leakage.

    I've had the armor lid on my truck for a year now. I have no regrets with it. Fit and finish are great. I have walked on it with no worries about it breaking. I have no problems with leaking or security. Being a hundred dollars cheaper than undercover. Leaves more money for other mods.
