    Hey guys,
    So I spent a while looking at the forums and comparing Cost/value/ looks across all the different brands. Essentially what I came up with is that everyone had polar opinions on each different bed cover. Some love certain covers and some hated them. I came to the conclusion that I will buy the cheapest one I could find and run it for a year. If I didn't like or if it would be crappy quality id throw it in the trash and get on with my life by getting a tool box.

    However, I was extremely surprised when I bought this $200 one for my 6ft Bed off of Amazon. They sell these under different brands under different sellers but Im pretty sure that they are all manufactured by the same company. (And they claim to be ISO9001 for all you engineering peeps out there)

    My Review:
    The top is a trifold vinyl top that seems to be of high quality vinyl. It comes with adaptors so it can mount onto the factory bed rails which is a plus. Also, there is some sort of rubber/foam weather stripping to fill the gap at the bulkhead. As far as waterproofing goes; I haven't had any issues with water coming in and it has been pouring rain for the last couple weeks. The only time I noticed something was when my tailgate was damp near the weatherstripping gap shown below.
    The fit is also something I was worried about, but this honestly fits perfect. The radii on the edges are contoured perfectly and it sits nice and flush to the back window molding. Also I really like the chamfered perimeter. I am very happy with the purchase.

    Here is the spot I got it from:

    5 months in and no problems. Just make sure you don't over tighten the points that mount onto the bed rails. The cross bars will stretch where it meets the bracket. I also needed to move the rear clamps into a different hole then was installed to reduce the angle.

    Thanks for the Review man I am thinking of getting this for 5ft bed but people seem to really like the quality of this cover and the price can not be beat. I was torn between this and the access cover.

    No problem, I was in the same boat as you. Just make sure when you install it don't over tighten the clamps. I tightened the crap out of mine and it seems to be that the connecting point from the clamp brackets and cross bars is getting slightly loose.
    You'll love the fitment. Just make sure you install the foam weatherstripping at the bulkhead with patience so you don't get any leaks.

    I just bought this same cover for my 5ft bed to easily put on for a beach trip with the dogs. This way luggage and stuff can go in the back with out getting wet. so far it seems nice but I notice a small gap between the bed and the cover at the front. with it close to the cab it doesnt seem to take air in but I may put my weather strip there as the back seems pretty sealed. Does yours have this issue? I also had to move the back clamps to the middle. What I like it can be removed in 5 mins and folded and stored in a closet and I can just put on when needed.

    I have the same cover and you can't go wrong with buying this. The fit, looks and price can't be beat.

    I absolutely love the look and fit. Waiting on the first rain to test how well it keeps stuff dry.

    Can you expand on the over tightening? How does an aluminum cross bar stretch?
