    seems like from fall till early spring im fighting to get the tonneau back on when i take it off to haul something. its from where it gets cold and shrinks up i reckon. seems like the only time ive even need it is when i go to myrtle and i put luggage back there. its honestly a PITA 95% if the time

    not sure if i really want to take it off though. does it really hurt mpg like they say? im not too worried about mpg im just curious. wondering what you guys would think though...

    sounds like its time for a new tonneau. Mine goes off in about 30 seconds and on in about a minute. No hardware or initial installations required.

    Same with mine. Easy on and easy off.

    As for mpg, I don't think they make much difference at all
