Question '06 FX4 Tonneau Cover

Lately my dad has been thinking about gettin a tonneau cover for his '06 FX4 ext cab. In the past he had a '94 ext cab with a fiberglass cover but it wasn't very handy to remove as he needs to haul large items from time to time. I was wondering what kind of cover you guys would recommend? Looking for something that wont leak, will last, and is fairly easy to remove or roll up out of the way.

The one I got from jcwhitney is fiberglass and is easy to remove and put back on by my self.

I had a FORD OEM roll up but it leaked and ripped

Actually time I paid for it plus shipping and had a friend paint it I was in under 600 dollars.

If you dont wanna spend much then roll up is your best bet. Some of the hard covers that are not fiberglass are expensive.

I have one called roll up cover , made by access / agri cover .

I bought it at cap world and I love it . Easy on and off as you can roll it back in a sec and load stuff . Then when you're done no stretching the dam thing to get it to fit . Black matches my truck and all the hardware is already included . LIfetime warranty on normal usage stuff . I think it was about $350.00 . My old one had the sn ba;s and it was a bear to get it back on hot or cold weather . . I have a lot of snow on it after as storm and it doesn't bother it at all . So weight on top seems to be ok .

Trifold Toneaus are great. My whole family has their own trucks ( Dad 03 Frontier, Mom 01 Ram 1500 and Brother 2010 Ram 1500) and none have had issues with them. Their durable in minus 40 Celsius and fold easily and scan be stored in the back of the cab. Plus they are lightweight

Looked but it said it was unavailable for an '06..
