    Are you looking for a tonneau cover for your truck? If so, I was initially looking at Gaylord covers, but was told by a dealer in the area that they've been having problems getting Gaylord to fulfill their orders and people returning the covers. They directed me toward ARE covers. You can find them at http://www.4are.com/product/view_models.php?mk=t&md=tacoma.

    I installed a Lund rollup last weekend. Install was about 20 minutes (after reading the instructions a million times before-hand).

    I almost returned the thing after noticing it covers the side rail. But my work-around was to use the 4 tie-downs and only 2 of the 6 brackets that came with the tonneau. Now I still have my tie downs, but they're not movable anymore. Good enough for me.

    I can take pictures if anybody's interested.

    It was $268 at FleetFarm. Lower price than any of the websites I checked out. Mostly in the $310s + shipping. It was $414 at the local CheckerAutoParts.

    If you want a soft tonneau that fits good and looks smooth then I would recommend an Access tonneau.

    I had an Access Lorado and really liked it. It's very low profile. The Access LE will work with the tie downs. Heres a bunch of info about the Access covers, and lots of satisfied Tacoma owners that are using them.
