    Hey everyone,
    Ive been looking into buying a tonneau cover for my truck, but need some help. I know i want a soft top cover, and was specifically looking into the Access TonnoSport Roll-Up Cover. If anyone has had any experience with this product or any insite on a cover similar to it. (mainly interested in the cheaper price, live in texas so weather isnt really a problem).
    Much Appreciated!

    You can't go wrong with any of the access covers. I had a literider on my 1st gen and have one on my current 09 and couldn't be happier.
    EDIT: I forgot to say, my 1st gen cover didn't leak at all, and it went through some serious rain storms. My current literider came already installed when I bought it and the front edge leaked a lot, but I took it apart and put some weatherstripping in and now it's waterproof.

    Access LiteRider from Luke. I just installed it this weekend! 280$ shipped. Its great! You can keep your bed-rails and cleats! Buy some weather stripping from home depot or Lowes and put it along your front bed rail and it will complete seal it up and hold out weather.

    I also have an access and have been very pleased with it. I love the ease of the roll up with their design and the overall looks.

    The Access covers do seem nice. I looked at them but wanted a tri fold. Opted for the TonnoPro. I wanted the Extang but it was a bit more than I wanted to spend.

    Very happy with my TonnoPro tri fold and it was quite a bit cheaper than most of the other brands. Quality appears the same as the more expensive brands.

    Does anyone know the difference between the Access Rollup, Lorado, Limited cover?
    Can you still keep the rail tie-downs installed?

    Some are lower profile than others. With the real low profile (flush with the bed edges), the rail tie isn't usable. The access one I bought allowed for rail use but is still a low profile. About an inch above the bed. Very sleak and looks really nice. I forget what exactly it was called. It's been a while.

    I have the access, forget which model, works good for what it is. The only place water can enter is at the tailgate because I never installed the optional weather stripping but still only allows a quarter sized puddle when I go through automatic car wash.
