    Tonneu looks good...cap is better value for the money...naked...don't make sense unless you haul tall stuff all the time

    just my take...but I'm biased

    Personally naked looks the best to me, but if you need the features provided by other options than that more than justifies it

    I got an ARE hard tonneau. I like the look of almost nothing on the back, doesn't block my vision any, and it only takes 4 bolts to remove it, but still locks good enough for me to secure my stuff. Only thing would be if I need to carry something tall, but I usually have enough advanced notice to remove the bolts.

    This Leer 100XQ is exactly what I plan to get someday. IMO it's the sexiest cap out there for the short bed.

    Agreed. Originally I was planning on going with the Undercover but reaslistically I don't haul much so I don't need the quick change out to the open bed. Coming to that realization I decided what I really wanted was some lockable storage. Just my $.02

    I have an Advantage Tri Fold and love it. I can remove it by myself and it stores standing in my garage. I had a cap on my previous truck and found that it was a pain in the a$$ to remove and added blind spots to my driving.

    I am looking for one right now, I like the looks/sounds of the trifecta, but if they made one like the Undercover but (trifold), I'd be on it like a hobo on a ham sammich...

    I like naked the best. Cause when I go eat, I can throw all my trash in the back of the truck through the rear sliding glass. :D And just clean it up later. Sounds like laziness, but I think its creativity. Better in my bed than in my passenger floor.

    Plus it just looks better too. Caps look like SUV's and tonneaus just look weird. Especially hard ones.

    But if you need it to serve a purpose, then its all good. But not for me.

    I just put on a Roll-N-Lock Tonneau Cover ... i have to say its the shiznit. Keeps my stuff dry and it rolls away so i can haul the big stuff too! the only thing i have a little issue with price. It wasnt the cheapest thing but i can definaly say you get what you pay for.

    Im my opinion the soft tenneau covers are not to bad but other than that naked all the way..... the hard tenneau covers make a truck look horrible IMO

    I really like the roll up tonneau covers, they look cool and keep your stuff dry/secure and you can roll them up and put a 4 wheeler in the back if you want.

    Thanks, it's a work in progress. My cap is a necessity for hauling my dogs. We have a local law that dogs can't be in the back of trucks unrestrained incase the jump into traffic. I thought about billet twin dog crates but this looks a lot better and my pups ride with pride

    so far most of everything that has been in the bed of my truck wouldnt fit with a cap or tonneau, the stuff that would doesnt sitin there long enough to worr about being stolen or damaged by water, i do have the dbl cab so with smaller internal capacities i can see where one of those would be effective but they just arent for me

    I love my Extang Trifecta! Folds up in no time when you want to haul something, and I've had no trouble with water getting into the bed.
