Thread: covers

  1. #1

    Default covers

    Hello everyone I just bought a 2008 regular cab Silverado LT. Which rolls up covers are the best quality? (I just want to keep snow from building up in the box) and which spray liners are best. (I need a hard surface that I can shovel from.) I would like to hear what everyone thinks.

    As far as the liner. Rhino or Line-x, would be great. Both are hard but I think that Rhino is a little more rubbery. As far as the roll up covers go do you want soft or hard? Do you need something functional or strictly to keep snow out? Check out truckaddons.com and stylinconcepts.com. They have tons of them and you can see which one would fit you best. Hope this helps.

    Welcome to the site! I have a roll-up cover made by Truxedo that is inexpensive but has a nice look. It has sturdy cross supports that are flat so it does not look like a covered wagon. It's very functional as it rolls up tightly behind the cab allowing use of the full bed. I see them for $269 with free shipping at several on-line sites.

    Welcome aboard
    First of all.

    You didn’t fill in your signature card, where you live and such. So we really don’t know what type would be best for you.

    If you only get a little snow, middle of the country you don’t need to get as heavy duty as we do here in the north. If you live in the northern states I would recommend the hard cover.

    Default Thanks for the reply. I want a hard surface. In the past I've always used a bedliner

    Thanks for the reply. I want a hard surface. In the past I've always used a bedliner but thought the spray liners may be hard enought. I also want a cover thats easy to roll up and of good quality. I just want to keep bed from filling with snow.

    Thanks I live in Chicago I wand a cover that will keep snow out but is easy to remove as I will use my truck for gardening in the summer.
