    Spend the money and go Bakflip. You won’t regret it. Had mine almost 15 months now and zero issues.

    Diamondback is the way to go for complete security and waterproof. A neighbor has one for over 10 years and only replaced the gasket seal once about 2 years ago. They are expensive but well worth it in my opinion.

    I have a Bakflip MX4.. a couple of things to keep in mind: water will still get inside the bed, prone to dent because it's aluminum. Kind of wish I went with a diamondback, but I'm happy enough with the BF to not want to get a DB just yet.

    Bak flip or undercover. Both are owned by the same company truck hero. I went with undercover because i didn't want the cover sitting against my back glass when open. Pretty much the same other than that. Both will leak around the edges. It's a toyota problem not a cover problem. Look at the gaps between the body parts on the bed. You could easily make it water tight with a caulk gun though. I just don't have the time or worry enough to do it. Dbs are nice to look at. But $$$$$$ and heavy. Not practical either if you haul Anything taller then the bed rails.

    Thanks for the replys. I paid like 800 for the extang and i can deal with the leaks around the corners but when they leak in the middle of the cover is where i get pissed. I will look at the ones you guys posted
    Thanks
