    WELCOME to TW! One of my co-workers is from Calgary. She used to work for Telvent before she moved to Houston. She says that I would love it up there (I lived in Denver for 4 years and loved the cold. :) )

    I am new to 4x4 driving...it's fun, especially when you see how much problems other drivers have sometimes. Before I was driving 96 Olds Cutlus, so it is a huge difference. I am trying to be carefull with rear wheels driven truck. We've got a lot of snow lately, so I use 4x4 very often. I install tonneau cover, and I also got a truck tent...looking forward to summer and camping :).

    I did not put it myself and did not have a chance to take it off, so I don't know yet. Keeps everything dry, and also little bit better mileage. Without this cover it's like you pushing peace of plywood size of tailgate :) .

    This is exactly the same as mie eug, I too am in Calgary. I am not new to four wheel driving though, just new to toyota, enjoy!! Did you buy i at heninger or canyon creek? I bought mine at heninger. I look forward to people needing help moving, picking up stuff at the hardwear store or every time it snows, I just can't spend enough time in my truck, I am looking forward to another field season when i get to spend almost every hour of every day in her, she's beautiful.

    Where did you get the tonneau cover and how much?
