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 and its contents, causing weathering, rust and corrosion that can be expensive to repair. 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.

The classic snap cover is the most affordable type of tonneau. The vinyl cover fastens to the perimeter of the truck bed with snaps and can be rolled up and secured at the front of the bed. On snap covers the bows that prevent sagging in the middle are generally separate from the cover. The most popular type of roll-up cover fastens to the bed rails with Velcro or tongue and groove seals, and has a built-in rail that attaches to either side of the bed near the tailgate. When access to the bed is needed the rear rail is released and the cover rolled up. The strengthening bows on these covers roll up with the cover.

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, you’ll just have to carefully consider how you use your truck to decide which one is best for you.

The tonneau covers we offer vary according to material, how the cover attaches to the truck bed, and how the cover opens. If you need regular access to your entire bed, a roll-up or fold-up cover will do the job. Retractable covers roll up into a canister at the front of the bed, exposing the entire bed except for the canister. One-piece, tilting covers are ideal if you usually only need access to the rear of the bed and don’t carry tall or oversize cargo that would interfere with the cover where it hinges at the front of the bed.

Folding covers, also called tri-fold covers if they fold in 3 sections, are available with hard plastic or aluminum panels, or soft, vinyl covered sections that fold up toward the cab. A hard folding cover that can be locked is a good choice if you want optimal bed security. Another type of hard cover that offers security is the retractable tonneau cover. These tough covers feature rugged aluminum slats that work like window shades, sliding on rails and rolling up into a canister at the front of the truck bed. Retractable covers can be locked in incremental positions, exposing only as much bed as you want.

Hinged tonneau covers are one-piece covers that tilt open, pivoting at the front of the bed. Hard hinged covers are made of fiberglass or plastic, while soft covers are made of vinyl stretched over an aluminum frame. Like their hard folding and retractable counterparts, hard hinged covers are preferable when bed security is paramount. And even if you have a tool box mounted in your bed, you can still have a tonneau cover. We offer tool box tonneaus that work with standard size tool boxes, including integrated tool box/tonneau combos that install together.

    If you're like most pickup truck owners, you carry a lot in the bed of your truck. And if your truck bed floor is bare, you may have noticed the increasing numbers of scratches and dents that have resulted from loading and unloading cargo. Glancing back at your truck isn't as enjoyable any more - because the whole of it no longer shines with the unified look of a single, unadulterated color. Or maybe you've protected your bed with a bedliner and have come to feel its black appearance just doesn't blend with your truck's finish the way you thought it would.
