    I am looking to purchase a tonneau cover in the near future and was wondering if anyone has any they recommend or like. i need one that will work with stainless bed rails. i'm thinking a nice soft roll-up cover would be good. let me know what u guys think.

    Kinda depends on how you use it. My last truck had a soft hinged cover that I really liked because it kept things dry and came off easy. I had vinyl bed rails on that one. It lasted about 9 years in Florida sun before it started to leak. I have an Undercover hard cap on my truck now and I like it better than the soft cover. It secures really well and it only weighs 59 lbs.

    The hard cover would be more durable in weather extremes and could still be taken off if you needed the height.

    Just my .02. :glasses:

    I have had several Truxido roll-up covers and they worked real well. My last truck had a Diamondback hard cover and it was a PITA...

    i was online looking at the Access covers and the Lorado looked like a decent cover, the low profile look appealed to me. anyone have this cover? they said they had a tailgate gasket i could buy to eliminate the rear leak. is this the Access cover u have Z71guy or is it the original?

    Truxido and Extang are both good soft covers. Each has several models to choose from.

    LOVE my Truxido Truxsport! Soft roll up cover, velcro along the sides, locking mechanism at the back...looks great too, really cleaned up the look of my 03.

    It is really interesting to have that kind of tonneau cover. I have friend who has it. I seen it in his garage. He was looking for a buyer. I can refer you if you want. :D

    I added an Extang 'tough tonno' roll up to my 05 work truck 8' bed. They have a lot of nice options though the ones that sit flush have a 2" metal ledge that intrudes into the body space. I have a toolbox that just fits between the bed rails so that wasn't an option. Mine sits on top of the rails which covered the rack holes in the over the rails bed liner and has a strip of vinyl that locks under the edges and fits in the tailgate cross bar which rotates to 'click' in place and pull everything tight.

    lifetime frame warranty & ten years on the tarp. Check their web site!
