    So im looking to buy a tonneau cover for my 06 access cab tacoma and i came across one called the Truxedo Lo Pro QT. I really like how it looks because it hardly sticks out of the bed at all and looks really low profile but i can't seem to find anywhere that sells one for my truck. Does anyone have a Truxedo cover for their truck?? Id love to hear from anyone that has one before i make a purchase. Also any other suggestions for tonneau covers? pictures would be great!

    Yeah I'll let you know sometime next week hopefully. The cover comes with special clamps for the Tacoma/Tundra that just slide into the bed rails making it that much easier and apparently your tie downs will still fit.

    I got the Truxedo and love it. I have total access to the rails and tie down cleats... It took me about 20 minutes to install.

    I installed a Lorado yesterday, unless they have changed, my tiedowns do not work with the cover. The track is removed and the tonno rail is bolted behind it using longer bolts then the ones removed. If there is someone who has a Lorado installed and is still capable of using the tiedowns let me know. I am impressed with the cover so far and don't expect any issues in the future.

    Truxedo Cover installed and looks great! Took me about an hour to finish complete install, very easy to do, just takes some adjusting to get it right. Looks pretty much sealed up except for the headseal by the cab, its got about 1/8th inch gap. I don't think rainwater would get in, but washing might be different. I'll do a water test soon and pics if i can find my camera.

    I have the Access Roll-up cover. No problems so far and I am able to use the tie-downs.

    cool, thanks BlueTaco. Looks good. So did the clamps just slide into the bed rails like you said before?
