Thread: Tonneau cover

  1. #1

    Default Tonneau cover

    hello I am looking for a tonneau cover for my truck. I have narrowed it down to the access cover(I think) and the tuxedo. Both are soft roll up covers with the vecro on the side. Let me know your thoughts on which brand I should get or stay away from? or any other ideas.

    my bed cover came on my truck, i dont really care for it due to the fact that I cant roll it up or quickly remove it, therefore I would reccomend a roll up one!

    i dont like the velcro ones, i had one on my H1 a few years ago and the velcro wore out pretty quick as i was using it pretty often. Id go with snaps or the press and seal types (never tried the press and seal).

    you can not go wrong with extang mine had the rubber that you pushed in. Stay away from velcro and if you ever have problems with extang they are great people to work with.

    Extang makes some really nice tonneau covers but I could buy 3 Truxedo's for the price of 1 Extang. You don't live in a super hot climate so the velro will stay glued to the metal rails better. I always believe in "You get what you pay for" and i am very happy with the Truxedo (only paid $167 for it from an Ebay dealer).

    Extang looks like a decent cover though.
