    Hi Everyone, I have posted about this before but I really need some help. I have a 2010 tacoma and I need to get a tonneau cover. I obsess over every thing I buy and don't want to buy the wrong one. If everyone could tell me what they have and if they like it or not and maybe the pros and cons for it I would appreciate it so much. I went to see the revolution cover in person and it looks great, the quality is outstanding. The only thing is that I keep getting conflicting info on if it works with the rail system. I just want one that works good and does not have snaps. Living in pittsburgh that is a total pain in the ass in the winter(had one on my last truck) Thank you to anyone who takes a couple minutes to share their opinion with me.

    I have the Extang Trifecta soft trifolding tonneau cover and am very pleased. It was priced right (under 500 cdn), light, easy to install, easy to remove, no snaps or velcro, waterproof, looks great, great warranty, works great in the snow, and can still use the bed rail system. Very pleased with this cover. If your looking for a soft trifolding cover this would be a good one to consider.

    Only con I can think of is that its soft and has no lock. I have the pop & lock installed in my tailgate so I really have no worries.

    Are you looking for a soft folding, hard or roll-up tonneau? I have an Access Limited Edition from Truck Alterations (they have special pricing for TacomaWorld members) and I love it. No interference with the use of my rails and the only real alteration I had to make was cutting 1" off each end of my cargo bed divider since the Access L/E uses spacers behind the stock rails to make room for mounting.

    If you're looking for a hard cover, check out the review of a G4 Elite here for some ideas.

    Just installed an "Undercover" Tonneau and love it.. I researched several types including the bed caps from Leer and I kept coming back to the Undercover. Got it new from Autoanything for $675.00
    It took less than 30 minutes to install and it installs using the bed rails.

    I bought the Access Limited Edition from Agri-Cover. I'm extremely pleased with the product. My vendor was Auto Anything. Price was as low as others and delivery was stupendously quick.

    Agri-Cover is based at Jamestown, North Dakota so I suspect they know how to make a soft tonneau that can withstand winter cold, which was my primary concern in deciding to buy soft versus hard.

    I am hoping Santa will bring me the Access LE. Seems like a nice choice and it is well reviewed.

    This is a hard choice because there are so many top quality covers available.

    I'm going to get the Rugged Cover tri-fold. It looks awesome on the truck and price is decent.

    Another vote for Access... As a testiment to their strength, mine went through a terrible hail storm and is still on the truck today...Other covers that went through this same storm were ripped and torn right through.

    I'm torn between the Truxedo and the Access LE. I know the Truxedo limits the use of the full size bed cleats by trapping them between the bedcover mounting brackets. Does the Access LE allow full use and travel of the full size bed cleats?
