An open pickup bed costs you money and detracts from the appearance of an otherwise great looking truck. Rain, snow, and sun can take their toll on an open bed, causing weathering, rust and corrosion that can be expensive to repair. Cargo exposed to the elements can become damaged, and if unsecured can be blown out of the bed on windy days. Even if you’re only away from your truck for a moment, anything left in an open bed can be quickly stolen by opportunistic thieves. And studies have proven that an open bed results in reduced fuel mileage. Covering your bed with a tonneau cover is the solution. A tonneau cover will protect your truck bed and contents from the elements, conceal valuable cargo, and give your truck a refined silhouette that is not only more attractive but also more aerodynamic. Better aerodynamics means less drag, so you get more miles per gallon and spend less at the pump. Installing a tonneau cover is a smart move. But before making a purchase decision you should carefully consider how you use your truck and the weather conditions you most often encounter, so you get the cover with the accessibility and level of protection that best meets your needs. The tonneau covers we offer vary according to material, how the cover attaches to the truck bed, and how the cover opens. Soft tonneau covers are generally less expensive than hard covers. A soft cover will provide substantial cargo security via concealment, but if you need ultimate protection against theft a hard cover is the better choice. Soft covers have braces and they are generally strong enough to temporarily bear the weight of the average snowfall, but if you live in an area that routinely gets many snowfalls with significant accumulation, then a hard cover will work best under those conditions.
