    Yes I searched! lol Actually, I've narrowed it down to 2 covers at this point. The access le or the truxedo lo profile. I had a truxedo lo pro on another truck in the past and liked it but it seems that the Access LE is the most popular here on TW. I can't make my mind up for chit! :D

    I have an Access Lorado. I like it a lot, but don't really like how winds will wave it around. Oh well, it's a soft cover. I would gotten a hard cover, but what sold me on a soft cover is that I can roll it back in seconds when I need to haul something in the bed.

    Look at the ExTang Trifecta. Soft 3 way fold. Really easy to install and secure. No water gets in there either. The bows are integrated and fold together with the sections. Lets you still use the side rail tie down system.

    Advantage Accessories, no tools required to install, uses factory bed rails, takes literally a minute to install, even less to remove. No leaks, its a hard cover. Love it. I still don't understand why everyone falls in to the stuipd extang covers... ridiculous to have to install hardware just to make it work.

    Topdeck. The truck came with it already installed. Major hardware installs using the bed rail system. Pull four retaining pins and the cover comes off for full use of the bed.

    I picked up a Extang Trifecta cover and absolutely love it. Easy to install and looks great. Switched the factory tailgate handle for a Pop and Lock tailgate handle....so now it's secure. Highly recommend the Extang Trifecta.

    I have the Trifecta too, and love it.
    How did the Pop N Lock work out?
    Easy to install? What materials is it made of?

    The Pop and Lock worked out great. I got the shop to install it because you do have to move the camera to the left of the handle and I didn't want to screw it up. But other than that, it works great. Seems to be made of the same material as the OEM handle.....a hard plastic.

    This.

    I've had my LE for almost two years... zero problems despite having a foot of snow/ice at times and 110ºF at others. I open it/roll it back at least 2x a week and it's just a taut as the day I installed it. I particularly like it paired with my sliding cargo divider... I can roll up the tonneau just as much as I need but leave the front part still covered and confined with the divider so things don't slide around.
