Default Bed Cover, what to do

I'm lookin' hard at an "Undercover" bed cover for my new shortbed truck but try as I might I can't find any fairly detailed pics of it mounted on a 4th Gen Ram. If anybody out there would oblige me along with their thought on the subject I'd sure appreciate being nudged either pro or con on that item. I know there are a ton of covers out there but for some reason this one caught my eye but before I wade in with my greenbacks I'd like to hear from the horses mouth so to speak.

I had an Undercover on my F-250. It used 4 brackets (2 up front and 2 in the back) to mount it. The brackets used aluminum clamps to hold them in place...they looked like the clamps used on most tonneau covers. Had I not traded the F-250 on my Ram, I would have positioned the front brackets and then drilled holes and bolted them in place as the clamps don't hold them worth a crap. The Undercover did keep things dry, but I didn't like the fact that I had to have a second person just to remove it and if I ever needed to use the bed, I better make sure I removed it beforehand.
I have the Bakflip G2 and love it. I like it much better than my Undercover...theres my 2 cents for what its worth. Oh, I got it from Overstock for $650 shipped...helluva price too.

My brother in law had one for about a year before he took it off and sold it. If you use your box at all they are a major pain, I think a canopy is a better option if you need to lock stuff up in the back. I personally run the Lo Pro Qt roll up tonneau and love it. Works great to keep the weather out and rolls out of the way when I need to use the box.

I have the undercover se smooth on my 2011 R/t . I love it.
I had the regular undercover black one on my last truck - a chevy colorado
and worked great for me. Took it off maybe 2 or 3 times a year to haul bigger stuff, and my wife and I can take it off or put it back in only a minute or two. This new one is cool as it has 3 accent lines on the top
instead of a big flat expanse. And the back kinda of flares up like a mini
spoiler. I mostly carry tools and computer stuff so it is perfect for me -
everything is locked and secure and won't get wet from rain. Also has an
LED light built in underneath. Install easy , no drilling.

here's the SE on a black truck. Rubs a little on the corners with snow piled on top so I just used a little bit of black vinyl to cover the top edge of the bed corners. Overall, pretty pleased. Cost me 675 delivered to my local speed shop.

Many thanks to all who responded to my quiry, y'all have some fine lookin' rides. The fact that a cover has to be removed to load anything big isn't really a problem for me since I seldom use the bed for anything other then odds and ends and the few times when I need the use of it to haul something large are usually known well in advance anyway. I'm looking at the Undercover more because its style pleases my eye with the additional benefits of providing some defense against downpours and a little security, albeit none that a kid with a screwdriver could conquor in the blink of an eye. Again thanks to all, and in the immortal words of Ahnold..I'll be back.
