I agree ^^ makes no sense to buy a truck with a bed then put a cover on it that limits its capabilities...this is why I hate the hard top covers that don't fold at all....ever try to see someone put a piece of furniture in the bed with one of these covers....doesn't work too well.

Not the case with a Bakflip and not necessarily the case with a Solid Fold. That is the case with a Fold-A-Cover or Advance Cover.

^ from what I've seen, even when they are folded all the way up, they still stick into the bed a few inches....I wouldn't be able to strap my bike in there with that...Also blocks rear window...

Yea, a couple of inches, but not a foot. For the Solid Fold, you can remove the entire cover. Disengage the two clamps in the front and the two at the rear and remove the whole darn cover.

I hear you, just not for me, my dad's old truck had a hard cover we hated it it was a pain because when you removed it you had to store it somewhere, and needed a couple people to do so...I just prefer the soft covers...

I have a Lund soft cover. It is the second as I had the same on my '06 Ram and it was easy to roll up and tied off easy. I got it for around $200. Keeps things dry as well!

More options than I thought.. LOL. But I will definitely be going with the soft cover.

I had the Access original roll-up cover on my 2003 Ram. I installed in in about 45 minutes and absolutely loved it. Very weather proof. Easy to roll up when I needed to put some equipment in the back. Attaches easily and securely. Lifetime warranty.

When I traded my 2003 in for a new 2011 Big Horn edition, it was one of the first things I bought. Haven't put it on yet. Hopefully tomorrow. But it will be just as easy.

Truck Alterations has them for $370.00 with free shipping(I think). Great price, great cover.

Default Longhorn with BakFlip F1

I recently purchased a 2011 Longhorn in Sagebrush. I love the Dark Browm leather. This is the first leather interior that I really like especially the softness of the leather.

Anyway, I just installed a BakFlip F1, literally yesterday. The only trouble I had was the lack of 'shims' for the side rails. Not in the pakage, went to Lowes and got double sided tape. Had to double the thickness but it worked well. Otherwise I think it is great and only took about 30 minutes to install, not counting running to Lowes. The instructions are terrible, you would think they would do a better job.

If you got a Longhorn, you should not quibble over the 'best' price. Get what you need. I chose the Bakflip for its ease of use and foldup. Of all the other foldups I saw they seemed cheap and not sturdy. I also chose the F1 being a fiberglass panel instead of aluminium, this will keep any errant dents at bay. Also the pebble affect will prevent spotting issues I think.

I will have to get pictures once the weather gets better, rainy right now.
