Default Factory tonneau cover questions.

Removed the factory hard tonneau from my 03 Supercab (3.0) and was wondering if anyone had a success in fuel economy with it off. I removed it so I could move some larger items into my new house and I did not realize how heavy it was until I picked it up. Maybe it was just awkward to carry on my own but it felt like I have been dragging around 200lbs or more of dead weight on the back of the truck. Should I put this back on after I'm done? I like how sturdy it is and I can lock the bed up (including the tailgate)...but my shoulders and back are not a fan of it at the moment.

Thanks a lot!

I think you answered your own question, it portects and provides a small boost in econo, i would just get a buddy to help me put it back on.
