    2007 Tacoma / 5' bed ...need a tonneau cover that can be easily rolled up. I have adjustable rails already in the bed. How easy is it to install one of these and what would be my best option considering I would have to take it off (roll it up) often?

    Thanks in advance:D

    Access brand is the best rool up, IMO. Installation takes about 30 minutes. Railing and ties downs are still useable after installation.

    I just installed an Advantage Torza tri-folding tonneau. No permanent hardware to install it's all on the tonneau. Entire thing can be installed in a couple minutes and can be fully closed, or tri-folded back, or obviously easily taken right back off. Love it so far.

    Access soft tonneau, matching tint, bed mat, Weathertech's.
    Access roll up soft tonneau. Best one out there by far imo. And it's DIY and looks sharp!

    Access. Mine survived a serious hail storm when others were torn through and destroyed.

    Good351: Almost cried when I saw the side of your truck. That was some serious hail. Here in SoCal, my truck got a real hard drizzle once. Almost had to get a towel out and dry the thing. That was a horrible storm. It still gives me nightmares.

    I have the Snugtop SL with keyless remote entry...I love it...water and dust proof...color matched straight from the factory (with lifetime warranty on the paint)...mines a BSP and I can get you pictures once I am off of work...

    planning on picking up the power lid accessories...more of a wow factor...

    I spend most of the year in the snow...only down side is that the struts that help to lift the tonneau cover doesn't like cold weather...when its cold about 40 degrees and below the struts tend to sag from the cold weather and the weight of the tonneau cover...basically it won't hold its self open at full height...nothing thicker and better struts can take care of...

    the rest of the year I ride a lot of street bikes and dirt bikes...remove 2 coder pins unscrew 2 hand bolts 1 person on each side and the tonneau cover comes right off...

    no drilling require at all...the snugtop sl utilizes the factory bed rails for installation...

    Extang Trifecta for me also .. If you roll/unroll often a trifold is a great way to go - I'm sure there are a few good brands. Truck Alterations carries these also.

    The Roll n Lock is AMAZING! For me it has been worth every penny.

    I was going to get this 1 or the pace edwards full metal jacket tonneau cover...only reason why I decided on the snugtop sl...when a buddy and I went up to tahoe for christmas it was dumping snow almost 2' every night...he has the roll n lock and when we attempted to open it up in the morning we noticed that the snow would melt and refreeze especially around the tracks and the lock...needless to say we would have to pour boiling hot water just to melt the ice off to allow it to retract...and it isn't water proof...

    that's why I chose the snugtop sl...but to each their own...

    BTW...that looks really good on your SW DC...:D

    I have the pace edwards full metal. In general I love it, I had it installed and wish I had just done it myself, save money and I would have done a better job. The biggest negative is that it uses the track system to install so now I have NO tiedowns (D-ring mod coming soon). I tried to have them install the mini-tiedowns at the time and they claim they didn't fit under the rails, I am going to take it apart and try myself.

    I live in Reno right next to tahoe so I will see this winter if there is any track freeze. It is not waterproof because of the tailgate but I have gone through a couple car washes with only minimal water in the bed. All in all I love the security it provides but hate what it does to the function of the bed. If you use the truck as a truck I say NO WAY if you use it as an SUV that you put dirt in once in a while then it is good.
