I have a Ford branded soft cover with snaps - sorry no pics at the moment.

Pros: looks nice, keeps the bed dry, holding up well (though I've had it less than a year), snaps keep things even and tight, rolls up out of the way.

Cons: expands and contracts with temp - damned tight in the cold sometimes, don't want to leave too much snow on it for fear of it stretching out, no real security, rolling up neatly is slower

I'm thinking I'd like a fold-up aluminum cover - something like the Bakflip HD. Still looking around at this point. Looked at the all-aluminum roll-top types, but you lose some bed space to the cannister, and their more complicated (more points of failure) than the fold-up.

Had a Snuglid SL. The only thing I did not care for was the locking mechanism. Would have been best just to have two locks as the latches sometimes didn't lock on both sides. Other than that, loved the easy no drill install. Heavy though when you want to take it off.

ONE-PIECE HINGED FIBERGLASS TONNEAU COVERS

it is priced at $599.99 now I guess I got mine on sale. I didn't pay more than 600 total after paint for it. The paint cost $125 I had a friend do it. I paid for all the paint and then paid him. Body shops wanted $350-$450 to paint it











And then I bought RangerJustin's bedrug and it finished off the bed nicely. The bottom of the cover is covered with carpet




What it looks like out of the box

I've got an older model extang II, the soft cover with the 3 tension bars. The darker gray color goes well with my charcoal ranger. I'll have to take some pics when it's not 40 degrees outside and raining!

I have a snuglid l. got a good price used. No drill assembly. I like it.
Thinking of putting some sort of trunk carpeting on the bottom to match the liner.
