I haven't seen a change in gas mileage since I got my tonneau... truxedo is supposed to be like top of the line but I have an access as doess my dad and cousin and we all love it... one of the mechanics at my work has a truxedo though and he loves it... on his though you lose bed space for the "box" the tonneau rolls into and I got my access new for a fraction of the price....

Access Tonneau Covers < Here's the website for the cover... I think I have the "vanish" model but it just has a lower rise.

I got a good deal 'cause I got it from this place. All the fleet trucks through my dad's company go through him... I think I paid about $350 out the door for it... they install it too for free but I installed it myself. I'm not sure if anyone else could get a deal like that from him but I can call him about shipping it if you're REALLY that interested....

Here are pics of mine installed... I had to mod the bedrails to get them to fit though...

Like I said, my dad has had his for about 5 years now... my cousin has had his for 2 I think... no problems and they have a lifetime warranty on the fabric...

Not a very good pic but here's another angle on my dads truck...

I love my Access, I got one for the Ranger on ebay for 200 and then I paid full priced for my one on the 150. I would recommend the traditional access though, I got the Vanish this go around and its not built as tough and it doesn't have a lifetime warranty like the trad access.

WTF are you talking about? No Truxedos have that, unless you are talking about the TruxedoPlus. And thats a toolbox at the end for you to put stuff into, not somewhere that the tonneau rolls into. Unless you are talking about something like a RollNLock, which are totally different and Truxedo doesn't make anything similar to them.




I have a Truxedo LoPro QT, IMO thats the one to get, way nicer looking then that Truxport one since its a lot lower profile.

I've never analyzed it Corey... it's a truxedo brand but where mine rolls up and rests against the cab this one has about 12" of metal. I'm not sure what it's purpose is (may be the toolbox one) and I've never seen it rolled up I just know I didn't want to lose 12" of my bed....
