Default tonneau cover or no?

I want see what you guys think of them. If you could have your truck with or without a cover on it, whch would you have and why. I have thought about thaking it off and having a toolbox in the back, but idk yet.

Depends on what you want to use your truck for.. Like for me living in pa and having pa winters and having to haul my hockey stuff around the cover is the way to go.. It's really your own opinion though man..

I love my Truxendo cloth bedliner. I can roll it up when I need more space. And when it rains or snows... then the cover is a life saver.

i love mine cus i can safly keep things in the bed cus it can lock, it keeps my tailgate safe from being stolen to. it looks pretty nice. also it helps mpg with the air flowing over it instead of drag going into the bed.

I don't have one but i want one eventually. I have a spray in liner in my truck so i don't have to worry about rain or anything when its empty, but if the bed has something in it that i don't want to get wet then I have to wait till stops raining and the roads dry to transport that.

Thats why tonneaus are great, they protect your cargo from the elements.

my truck has the spare tire mounted in the bed. theres no way i can have that and a tonneau cover.
and my 32 DOES NOT fit in the spare tire location under the bed. (due to my hitch and magnaflow exhaust system)
