Leer 700 hard cover with remote lock for me...Dodge issue BedRug. Seldom if ever need the whole bed open...primarily for safety & security. Keeps the golf clubs safe, dry & outa sight. Remote lock is real sweet as it's wired into the door locks.

I just installed the bakflip f1 tonight...install was about 20-30 minutes, works great and looks great, I wanted it on before the snow came tonight, and it just started falling as I was finishing up...will post some more pics tomorrow

but here's a couple rail install pics

Put a tonno pro on mine last week. Love it so far. One rain storm and one snow storm later and no water inside the bed.

I was hoping someone else would post this so I avoid the 'nerd' comment LOL But yeah I watched the same episode. Tonneau's do not increase gas mileage but, they do keep your stuff safer and in the winter there's no snow blowing around in the box wich helps rear visibility, and not as much weight in the box weighing down the suspension.
I plan on getting one...just not sure if I wanna go with a 1 peice fiberglass one or a roll up version. In my mind if I am gonna use the box, I am going to b e using the whole thing so the size of the cover wont matter.

Covers are also safer if you have a rear sliding window. Ive seen beverage cans shoot into a cab and bounce off the windshield.. That will make you change your pants when you get home. A cover wont allow things to leave the bed. Especially if you didnt put the can in there in the first place. People will throw their garbage into your truck bed just because they can. I recommend covers regardless of type.

As far as the mileage goes, i bought a 5000# vehicle with a V8, the larger gastank, because I know ill need it!

I do have one and am anxiously awaiting for it to be installed between my side toolboxes that are attached to my custom frame which is bolted to the truck box with four bolts that that thread into a nut tack welded on the underside of the truckbox. The tonneau cover attaches flush with the frame holding the toolboxes. By removing the bolts, retracting the top, unplugging the electrics, and removing a rubber tube it is a simple matter of picking it all up en mass' and taking it out of the truck for a camper. I need not remove anything on the frame if it is 48 inches wide or less. I will end up making a small camper with the fram as well..By august the frame will be complete with tent and all. Will supply pictures when complete.

I really like the roll top part of the retrax tonneau. Plus the company was very receptive to makinga custom dimensioned tonneau for my tool box frame that I had welded up for my roll top tonneau cover to fit into my new truck.
