    Sorry, I can't help you. I have the fiberglass cover. Do a search on here for tonneau. There were several threads, about this a while back.

    I can vouche for it. I have had mine for about 2 months now and I love it. The temp up here has dropped to about minus 15 on some mornings and it rolls up and back out no proplem. Took me about an hour to install, and it could have been a lot faster had I read the directions more than once.

    Are you referring to a soft roll-up cover?

    I had many of those in the past but on my 07 tacoma, I went with a tri-fold and wished I would've bought this YEARS ago.

    It's an Advantage Torza Top tri-fold. Abolutely love it!! Folds up and comes off completely and easily. Doesn't interfer with your rail system or d-rings. No hassles in the winter with the cold. The top itself is a permanent part of the frame. You actually tri-fold the frame or take it off completely.

    I paid $1050 installed plus tax. Its a little more than a painted hard cover but there's no comparison when it comes to protecting your stuff. I also like the way it sits in my truck. I also like the fact that i can roll it back and have the whole bed of my truck to play with. I didn't want to be worrying about taking a hard cover off. I've already had instances when i needed the bed space while out in the town and being able to roll the cover back was extremely useful. Hope this helps.:)

    I have had a Truxedo tonneau for 3 years now. I just put it on my '09, and had it on my '06 previously. It rolls up and the bows roll with it. It has been awesome, and it has no issues. Sorry the picture is not that close, but it's dark now. I highly reccomend this one.

    Access lorado has been the nicest of the soft covers I've seen. doesnt show ribs or have buttons along the side. or possibly the vanish. I've never seen it but in pics but suppose to be lowest of all of them.

    Don't know about ice but i have had dirt/pine needles/leaves...etc on it and rolls just fine. There are brushes at the entrance of the canister that keeps big items from getting in. When it comes to water, they drill 2 holes into the bed of the truck and run two hoses from the canister so when the cover rolls, the water is drained out. The roll and lock is not 100% waterproof and whoever tells you it is is lying but it does keep enough out that makes it worth having. I love it. I would recommend it to anyone.

    I'm curious george. Do you get water in the bed with the rollnlock? I just put a full metal jackrabbit on mine and It rained yesterday and there is some water on the wheel wells and tail gate areas. Thanks


    quotegelexamado;264726]I have a roll n lock and love it. Its secures my stuff and looks great. Its probably the best rolling cover out there IMO. Check out this video on their website. Kind of cheesy but you'll get the point.

    Build thread in sig...
    if you're looking for a hard roll-up cover check out pace edwards. i have the metal jackrabit cover. had it for about a year and love it. very strong, i've stood on it and beat it up and it still looks/works like new. plus it locks, so paired with a pop n lock, you have a watertight, fully lockable truck bed. i think i got mine for about $800, and installed it myself in about an hour.

    Man where did you get the full metal jackrabit for $800? That's excellent and outstanding. Do you get any water in the bed or no rain in Fla? Thanks

    Everyone is going to be preferential to the brand they own. I am no different and LOVE the Access Roll-Up cover. It's a step up from the Literider as it comes with the 'Element Seal' up front but is not as pricey as the Limited Edition. Call Luke at Truck Alterations for help in picking the Access Cover that is right for your needs.

    I paid $340 shipped.
