    There are many threads on tonneau covers in the Aftermarket and Apearence section. I have a Truxedo Truxport roll-up soft cover and has been great! Very durable even under a few feet of snow) and easy full bed access when you need to haul something. Affordable as well at around $175.

    Clamp the 3 rails to the bed rails in about 15 minutes. Here is a link to the PDF installation manual.

    Default Truxedo or Access

    We used Access tonneaus on our fleet of trucks but recently found the Truxedo Lo Pro Qt which is very similar but the entire cover can come off the frame in about 2 seconds. either install in about 15 minutes. I would DEF stay away from the snap covers, especially if in the colder states. We buy from Cap and hitch of new england and it looks like they are selling online now. They are a local shop (in MA) and have always taken care of me. Good Luck!
