Hard Tonue covers

Looking for a Hard Tonue (sp) cover. What brands do you all like. I like the looks of the snuglid sl. I like the sleek look but want it as water tight as can be. The leer doesn't look as custom to me. What do you all think or have? Any you like and don't like from past experiences

RETRAX all the way here dude.

Had one on my last truck and have one on this truck.

Call them up and see if they have any "factory seconds" available for your truck....it will save you several hundred dollars.

The GEN III is completely low profile. Here is a pic of it on my old truck

YOU ARE THE MAN. I wanted the Roll N Lock but I know they aren't water tight. They say this seems to be water tight and I know it is more functional than a hard tonnue (sp) Thanks again

I'm pretty happy with my ARE LSII - as it overlaps the bed edges (but doesn't touch), no water gets in. Had to remove about 2 feet of snow a couple weeks ago so know it can hold weight too.

I have the Leer 700 on mine. It doesn't leak and I actually like the looks of it. Hasn't given me a minute of trouble either.

Here you go dude.... order directly from the factory. Ask for a factory second...it will save you several hundred dollars....I had a factory second on my last truck and I could not find ANY Blemish anywhere.
