    ARE LSII Cover w/ BedRug, CravenSpeed Shorty Antenna, Husky Liners, Wet Okole Seat Covers, OEM Tube Steps, Bilstein 5100 set @ 1.75 with rear leaf TSB.
    I have an ARE LSII. I have not had any leaks sine it was installed in Feb 2010. I got it at Suburban Caps on Route 17; the guys there were great. I have not taken it off yet but it looks like it would be a pain in the rear to do so. I was looking at retractables as well but didn't really like any. It came down to the ARE LSII and the Undercover. I chose the ARE because it is painted to match but I have a black truck so the Undercover would have looked OK but not as finished as the ARE. had them install a bedrug while I was there too. Sorry, no pics handy at the moment.

    I have leer 700 since September 2009. I have no problem with it and they are colormatch and watertight. I remove it one time when loading some stuff on my truck. Make sure you mark it before remove it.

    Here is my picture - pop up tonneau:

    You can see more picture on leer website.

    I've had the same Leer Tonneau on my DC LB for over 5 years now and it still looks brand new. I take it off at least a half dozen times a year (hauling firewood, gravel, etc). Still works like new. I even devised a simple method for hanging it in the garage with a couple of 2x4's and some rope which I can have it off or on in about 15 minutes by myself. As long as you leave the 6 attachment points in the bed rails, you'll learn you don't have to mark where it goes.

    With that said...

    I'd go with an Undercover if I had the choice (no choice back in Aug 2005 because they weren't available for the 2nd Gen Tacos yet). I'd rather have a light-weight hard tonneau cover that I could just lift off rather than going through the lifting process I do now to remove it.
