    Ya, brand new is pretty expensive. Espcially fiberglass. However, they look awesome!

    Just some food for thought...

    I've put dozens of these covers on just about every truck out there. They are very nice covers and work great IF...

    1) You live somewhere it won't ever snow or freeze. They tend to get jammed up fairly easily.

    2) You are not 100% concerned about water PROOF. They do a good job at keeping most of the rain out.

    3) Don't mind making routine adjustments. It is a fairly secure mounting system, but will require adjustments to keep everything rolling smoothly. And grease it up regularly!

    KickerG, if you have any other questions, send me a PM and I'll be happy to help.

    I had a Snugtop hard cover on my Yota and loved it because it was painted to match and was ver sturdy even with a couple of feet of snow piled on it but the downside was not being able to use the bed for hauling anything large because of such a pain to remove.

    The thing I dislike the most about those ones that roll up but are a hard tonneau is the amount of bedspace you lose...I mean some of those are 12 inches or more, Thats why i went with a toolbox and a line-x that way I can lock up my tools and still have a protected bed..and the box is super easy to remove if i need to haul more stuff.

    I have a Truxedo soft roll-up on my Silverado that rolls up tightly behind the cab when I need use of my whole bed, but keeps things dry when covered. They do make a toolbox/tonneau so you can have both.

    I was thinking about getting the truxedo with the toolbox as well, but if i remember correctly that thing was near 1000 dollars...maybe 8-900. I got a toolbox for 175 and line-x for 475. I definitely would have liked the truxedo, just so expensive...plus the bed is not protected from cargo and other stuff.
