    What's the differences between the Armorlid and the Undercover tonneau's?

    Any advantages to one brand in particular or owner experiences?

    I have the UnderCover. It's been on the truck for over 2 years now and still looks and functions like new. It goes on and off easily and even though UnderCover doesn't claim it's water tight my cover hasn't let a drop of water into the bed even when using the hose on it during washing.

    The undercover is about 10# lighter than the armorlid but the armorlid costs less. Fit and fuction are almost identical. Both are good hard covers. I havent had one issue with my armorlid.

    So glad to read this - I've been looking at one for mine. It's one of the few things on my list already. :)

    I have the Undercover so really can say much about the other.
    One thing I have noticed is the large tie down cleats, they seem to hit the cover if placed in certain areas.
    So don't know if anyone else has noticed this, as a fix I went to the smaller ones they offer, plus added two more sets to the bed.

    I've had the UnderCover for about 8 weeks now and really like it. Strong and water tight. Shop around on price. I found a 100 bucks difference calling about 5 places.

    I had the undercover but sold it as needed a camper shell, have no complaints and if I needed another tonneau I'd buy another undercover. It's a quality product.

    I believe the undercover sets a little lower over the bed rails on the inside and flush with the molding on the outside. It locks the tailgate shut when it is lowered and locked. As Roland stated my Undercover has also been very watertight. I made 5 calls and price varied by over $200.
