    Anybody buy and throw one of these covers on? How did you like it? I haven't seen many reviews on the hard top cover mostly the soft Tyger T3. Seems like a decent deal.

    Thanks

    They do not make one for Taco's as I understand. Only soft roll up or soft tri fold.

    According to this they make an alloy one for $500. I'm very tempted, looking for Youtube reviews at the moment.

    If it locks with the tailgate, I'm going to pull the trigger on it. Gotta verify that tho. Planning a roadie to California and I'm taking a bike with me that I want secure in there at rest stops.

    Just confirmed with Tyger Auto this hard top tonneau locks with the tailgate lock. So this might be the best bet for the money - I’m gonna order one tomorrow.

    Wish it was in Canada. At $500, minus well get a higher quality one. Black Friday deals are also coming. I hear as much as 15-20% off most big brand tonneau covers.

    They have part# for the 2016-2018. Then they have a separate part# for 2019's? Should all be the same.

    Any updates on how the Tyger hard top is holding up? Trying to choose either between the Tyger hard top or the Gator EFX

    I’m very curious of this as well. I have the tyger trifold but I’ve been wanting something more solid/secure. Even tho it seems to be for third gens only at the moment.

    Installed took about 30 minutes for me. It did leak on both sides even after readjusting twice to no avail so I just patched the sides with weatherstripping.

    So I’ve drove it from Seattle to San Diego. Went through rain especially in Oregon and it did leak somewhat especially in the front of the bed. I noticed I would occasionally have to retighten some sides of the cover sometimes.
