    Just acquired a 2011 Tacoma, by trading in a 2009 FJ Cruiser. Thinking about adding a"hard" bed cover, preferrably a tri-fold. Suggestions, or recommendations?

    Congrats on your purchase. I put a Fold-A-Cover on my 2011 about a month ago. The construction of the cover is top-notch but the mounting of the side rails and front/rear seals leaves a lot to be desired. Both are held on with 3m tape. I installed the cover as per the directions and still have places on both side rails where the tape didn't stick very well. I don't think 3m tape on a surface with tread (like the factory tacoma plastic bed rail caps) is a god idea at all. The seal at the front of the cover hasn't shown any signs of problems. The rear seal is another story. Several places along this seal have started to come lose. Two of the places are on the sides of the rear latch. The latch is lower than the panel so the seal has to bend where it crosses the latch. There are three other places along the rear seal that have come lose and absorb water every time it rains. It is only a matter of time before I have to remove this seal and replace the tape. The rear panel is designed different than the front panel and is the main reason for the these problems.

    I do like the cover but only time will tell if it is going to be more of hassle than it's worth. I have already purchased more tape and adhesion promoter in anticipation of having to replace the tape.
