I put the undercover smooth se on mine. They also have a black textured one that doesn't need to be painted. Pops off in 2 minutes, seals well and has led light

The Mopar ones are nice I have one on my '02. But, unless they've changed, the lock uses a refrigerator style key and they tend to freeze in colder climates. Water can get in underneath the plastic piece that covers the lock. A.R.E and Leer are nice covers but pricey. Once my '12 comes in I plan on getting an A.R.E.

I have a Leer 800. Fits well and does not leak. Paint matched very well. They are pricey. Limits carrying anything over about 26" high. There are a number options you can get with the cover, light, remote control etc.

I'm looking into the SnugLid SL for my 2010, but with a retail price of $1400 I am not sure if I am gonna buy it or not. I had the same model on my 02 Dakota and it was great. I especially like the ability to key it to match the factory keys and that it has an electronic unlock option. Also the underside is carpeted which is pretty cool.

Only thing bad about those is if you need to carry something you have to remove it or drive down the road with it stuck up in the air. U ever consider a bakflip i have one and love it keeps the bed super dry and locks with the tailgate.







And hold up to 700 pounds bet the fiberglass ones wont do that

I also think this is the way to go! However, I can't choose bewteen the new Extang Encore or this Bak Flip F1. Can you close the tailgate without having to lift the last section up first?

Al you do is lift it a 1/4 of an inch and then close the tailgate

I have the LEER 700 with wing.....There are issues when it comes to hauling things but then again I didnt buy this truck to haul things!!!....

I looked at them all when I was buying one and in my opinion the LEER is built the best, has the best warranty. They even use your VIN number so that they can go back to the date your truck was built and make sure they use the exact paint mix so it matches and mine matches perfectly!!!.....Yes, it was pricey, about 1500 bucks but it is WELL worth it and it is a definite head turner.

Forgot, one other nice thing about the LEER 700 is that the hard lid has the exact same raised middle that the hoods do on our trucks....It makes it looks like it was made just for the truck....:smileup:

I just bought an LSII ARE tonneau cover for my 2010 Ram Crew. I am very disappointed in the quality. When I got it home and opened the lid one of the hold down brackets (all plastic) was broke, cover is completely shifted to the drivers side because the main hinge is not centered when it was factory mounted, huge space behind the cab and the start of the cover, the cab is round and the cover is square (I should have caught this before I ordered it!), corner braces missing bolts (two missing on one side and one on the other), the box side rails flex inward significantly (nothing like my ARE on my 02 Chevy). The bolts that were missing in the corner brackets allow the frame to open up and damage the external hinge cover and paint.
Not my best day. Look at an ARE in person before ordering and inspect completely before accepting.
Oh yeah I forgot to mention paint overspray and unfinished corners on the fibreglass at the front, the inside portion of the hinge has almost all of the rivets pulling through the hinge.
I have some pics, but need to learn how to post them first.
Just my 2 cents.

The undercover se smooth is the one to get. I researched them for months before getting mine and I've been happy with it after owning it for more then a year.
