    Does anyone know a good source for a tonneau cover for an `08 Dual Cab Long Bed?

    I got my Access LE tonneau cover from a local shop for a really good price, but they screwed up the order for 6 weeks! So, I wouldn't even recommend them for mail-order.

    http://www.autoanything.com has the LE for ~$466 with free shipping. I paid a little less than that.

    I suggest calling local shops and see who has the best deal. :cool:

    Hard top? Retractable? What are you looking for?

    I would consider AutoAnything if you are going to do it yourself and save a couple of hundreds. I didn't because of the SnugTop choice I went with. I got SnugLid F2. They are dealer-install only.

    I would work with a local shop recommended by the manufacture of the cover on their website and call around. Some manufactures have coupon for a couple of dollars back after the agreed price...so thank me later :).

    If I have to do it again, I probably go with a Pace Edwards retractable instead of the hard top SnugLid F2. Not so much for look but for hauling big stuff.

    Go with Luke at Truck Alteration. He did a group buy on TN for 355 shipped if i remember correct. (lower than most retailers cost)
    just google truck alterations and email or call LUKE.

    I have the cover and it is by far the BEST OUT THERE I have had many.

    I agree Pace edwards it great I had one on my old truck but you lose about 12 inches of Bed space. due to the canister.

    Thanks! I have looked at their website and am considering the Extang Tuff III cover. Any comments on the model I'm considering. I need one for a double cab long bed (73.5 inches). They list one for a "double cab 6' short bed" which I assume is the same thing.
