Retrax!!!

Had the Retrax on my last HD. Loved it. No problem opening it even in our frigid NY winters. Kept everything dry, and did not rattle.

A.R.E. Good quality, fit, and finish. I've had three in the past.

Have the Undercover tonneau cover. Strong and light weight. The tonneau cover weight was the deciding factor for me. See www.undercoverinfo.com.

I have the peragon fanfold hard cover. It's aluminum (baked-on, satin black powder), weighing about 35 lbs or so (including rails, maybe 45 or 50 lbs) and can be easily removed if necessary and be carried in the truck. When folded, it takes up about 9" or so of space at the front (maybe not even that much). I installed it myself in about 8 hours. Okay ... I did have the help of my 11 year old son, so that added some time for inquiring minds and such, but he did help me.

Covers

Hey, I installed the "Fold-A-Cover" (http://www.fold-a-cover.com/),on my 2003 long box, took about 45 minutes. (by myself). Opens and locks at both ends, if you need full access to the box it coms off in 5 minutes. I pull a fifth wheeler, so it'll be nice to have some cover over the box when on the road.

I have the Snug Lid SL. Matches paint perfectly. Has a double seal, single lock in middle instead of one on each side. Also comes down over tailgate to cover the black protector on the tailgate. Some lids don't do this, and in my oppinion, this looks much better.

My 04 came with an ARE from the previous owner and the fiberglass is cracking in a few places already but since I'm not the original purchaser I don't have a warranty.

I don't know what color your truck is or if it is a long bed, but I have a Pewter fiberglass Astro cover for a longbed I took off of my '02 before I traded it in that I would make someone really good deal on. It's like new.
