Default Extang Revolution Tonneau Cover - Any Experiences?

After some research, I'm leaning toward one of these tonneau's from Extang for my '11 Ram 1500 Crew.

http://www.autoanything.com/tonneau-...0A3317429.aspx

Does anyone have one of these on their Rams? If so, any pros or cons? It looks to be very nice, & has good reviews.

I really don't want a flip or hardshell cover, so this one looked like a good alternative.

Thanks!

I've got a competitions product and am happy with it. I'm sure you'd be happy with either of those.

I have the Extang Revolution and I like it very much. Here's a couple pics, keep in mind the pics were taken immediately after install so the cover had not stretched yet.

Hey, great pictures! Just what I needed. All of their ads I've seen show a Ferd 150.

So, you're happy with it? How is it at keeping out water? I had their Tonneau III on my last Ram, which was an OK cover. The Revolution looks like it's a much better, easier to use cover. Looks like a great cover.

How are the bows & locking system, is it sturdy?
Thanks for posting!!

Yes, I'm happy with it. The only negative thing I see with the cover are the buckles, You can see them by the rear window. Seems like they did a half assed job of sewing them to the cover. One of them is ready to tear off, might be because of how they flap around in the wind.

The bows and the locking system is flawless. The bows roll right up with the cover. If you look in the first pic, the bows lock in place behind the 3 bow-tie shaped nuts and then the nuts slide along the rails, which tighten the cover.

IMO it's about as sturdy as a roll up can get. Also haven't seen much water in the bed since I installed the cover. (That's why it's so dirty hehe) Hope this helps.

I ended up buying one, also. Thanks!
I am VERY pleased with it. Looks great, easy to use, & very high quality. I have no problem with the buckles by the rear window, either. Maybe they changed the design?

I got it from www.autoanything.com
They are a GREAT place to order stuff from. Great prices & free shipping to boot.
