    Hello all, I am about to drive my tacoma across the country and I'm looking for a way of securing my bed. I'm leaning towards doing a pop n lock with some sort of rolling tonneau. Has anyone had experience with any of the Truck Covers USA models? In particular I am interested in the Work Cover Jr. model which has the toolbox on top of the canister. Thanks in advance!

    I have the Pop n Lock and Truck Cover USA rolling cover combo. Very sturdy and convenient. You lose about 10" of bed space, but I added the bed extender to gain back the real estate. I was looking to add the Jr Work box, but it's nearly $800 more for not much storage space. Better just throw your regular toolbox under the cover and lock it.

    Interesting. I've read that it actually affects MPG, by only slightly, like less than 2. I would think there would be no change and if anything, actually make it better.
