I decided to pull the trigger on a box cover for my truck. I figured it was time, considering the amount of times we could've used the big cargo area for things like Costco runs, family trips and such. i went for the Retrax instead of a body color hard cover, because it seems more practical, and unlike the Roll n' Lock, you don't have to grease the bed rails and spindles because the Retrax is made of polycarbonate panels and plastic spindles. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the raised "Roll into" box on the Roll n lock, but i favor the flush design of the Retrax. we'll see how it goes, and now I'm glad the truck came with a locking tailgate. The guy at the shop recommended the bed caps to finish the look, so i went with a set of black plastic bed caps. i think it looks good!

Looks good. How long did it take to install?

The shop i went to installed it, it took 20 minutes, but i had to wait an hour and a half for them to run across the city for the bed caps.

nice shot! bulls eye, ha ha. I have been wanting to put one one my truck for some time now. I'm stuck between deciding between a camper shell or a rolling tonneau cover.

How is the water seal? Will it keep the box 100% dry? I've seen some that don't make a complete seal, I mean like a 1/4 inch gap between the tailgate and end of the tonneau cover, wtf?

I like the low profile of the cover. I got the trifecta hard cover. I like it, it keeps the bed dry, but it is an inch or two tall.
