Default Best roll up or folding tonneau?

Could anyone tell me what the best roll up or folding tonneau cover is? I see a lot of guys checking out the bak flip but I dont like how it blocks off the rear window when folded all the way forward, what do you guys recommend?

I run the Truxedo Lo Pro Qt roll up tonneau and love it! All the guys at work run these on their trucks and swear by them.

I have always ran Xtang roll up covers on my trucks.. 5 min to install, 2 min to roll up when needed. Buy through autoanything.com usually around 230-250.00

I have the Fold-a-cover G4, doesn't fold up against the back window like the bakflip, but I like having the ability to open the panel at the front of the box when its all closed up.

It depends if you want to put rails on your truck or not. Both my son and I were going to purchase the Bakflips his sport came with factory rails went to install and because of the location of the rear stake holes it wouldnt work. He went with the Truxedo and I opted for no rails and the Bakflip Hd . Hope this helps.

I'll echo Harley.

I HAD wanted to go with a harder folding-type top, but the truck that decided to adopt me as its new owner had bed rails from the factory. The Truxedo Lo Pro I got looks awesome between them.

I've owned two, one for my 2009 Chevy 1500 CC and now one for my 2011 Ram 1500 CC.

I wouldn't use any other brand at this point. In both cases of purchase, I called up AutoAnything, not online, called them on phone, haggle a few minutes, and each time got my cover shipped free (included already I think) for under $400 USD.

Yes, if you call them, and speak with a sales person, you CAN get these for $400 or less. When I trade in again, I will purchase another one from AutoAnything for the next truck..... Good luck with your purchase.....

I went round and round trying to figure out what cover to buy. I decided on a Bak Flip F1. I was hoping it would be here yesterday. As far as covering the back glass, that bothered me too, but it can be removed without tools if I need to. My $0.02.
