No doubt the cover did offer some protection from the weather. I guess SOME protection from thieves as well... since they can't see what's inside. I never felt comfy leaving anything of value in the bed like I would with a hard cover though.

Good point about the stake pockets. I don't have mine covered but that is easy enough to take care of. I can deal with some water in the corners...no biggie there.

Yeah their tool box system looks pretty nice.

I wish the Deuce was hinged in the rear in addition to the front. It would be more practical for me to lift it up in the rear vs the front.

I plan to hit up :bbp: once I figure out which one I want.

Generally when we take the truck for road trip it is to visit friends or family. They all have a garage spot waiting for me so that's the reason I'm not really concerned with security.

Thankfully our vehicles rarely sit outside. If they did, security would be a greater concern.

I really liked the Roll-n-Lock that was on my Dodge when I bought it. Good hard security, easy roll up into the little box at the front of the bed (under 12" I'd guess) Fairly water tight, what drains off the cover flows into the box and into drain tubes that can be routed into the bed's drains.

The Undercover Flex Cover seems to be a good choice because it can folded up completely for full and easy access to the truck bed.

I have a tri fold cover and it is the dust sucking-est thing I have ever seen, It turns my bed into a dust vacuum and its terrible if you have any dirt roads to drive on. I haven't had it on lately because I go to the drive in theater in town a lot and like to sit in the bed.

:withstupid:

The Truxedo on my Frontier did the same thing! I live on a dirt road, and the bed usually had about 1/2" of dust in it if I hadn't driven with the cover open or rinsed out the bed for a week or two.

And that isn't exaggerating!

I have an Access roll up on my 2006, and I've noticed it too. Any cover will do this. As long as there is any gap from the tailgate dust will get caught in the bed and settle. Mine is usually rolled up if I'm not on a highway road trip. If it says anything the corners of my cab and corners of my bed usually have distinct dust lines from my draft. People who don't drive on dirt don't realize how fast dust builds up. :lol:

As far as the quality of the cover, I like it. I don't have my stake pockets covered and even with that not much water gets in. If you're moving none does. It's great for throwing life jackets, tubes, wakeboard, etc under after a day at the lake so you don't have to worry about them blowing out. Anything loose in the boat can just be thrown in.

Well the 900's have air gaps under the rails too so it is extremely pronounced in them with a cover on.
