    Is there a gap in between the tailgate and the tarp? I to am looking into covers and i see what is the best selling, bu ti want "real world" opinions as well. Mine will most likely be staying on year round so it need to work well in all weather conditions

    Agreed. This is what i have on my truck and love it. My brother has the Extang Trifecta on his truck and it's nice, but i prefer my Access.

    What i don't like about the Extang is that you have to take it all the way off to get "full bed use" with the Access you can roll it all the way back and have the full be open.

    I have the Truxedo Lo Pro, I like it but it uses the track system so I can't use my cleats in the bed anymore:(. My truck makes up for it with about 50hp in sticker mods! :D

    I love it. It sits on top so I have full use of track & tie downs. You do have to pull it off if u need to use full bed but u just turn 2 large wingnuts & its off. 3 minutes total to take off & put back on. Price is half of bak flip which I wanted till $700 just couldn't be justified

    I took pics of it folded & the easy spring loaded hold downs but we just ran out for the afternoon. I'll post them up tonight

    I've got a Roll N Lock and love it. It is pretty pricey but I though it was the best combination of security/versatility and no issue with is whatsoever.

    Glad you like yours and that you haven't had any issues with it, but I don't normally recommend going with this particular model, they are warranty nightmares and we get alot of complaints. We have a few hundred warranty issues on these at the moment (I don't work for extang, just an aftermarket parts co.).

    I'm looking to get the Bakflip G2 myself... sturdy as heck and haven't seen too many problems with those. I know you lose your clamps in the track system but there's always a way around that ;)
