FINALLY got my tonneau

I've always wanted to get a tonneau for the truck and finally was able to go and pick one up! Ended up getting a Torzatop, and I love it. No pics at the moment cause its raining out, but should have some up by tomorrow.

Its a tri-fold, with 4 clamps to lock it in place, and folds up conveniently, and so far I'm very happy with it. The shop I bought it from said another guy with a ranger said he gained around 3mpg, which would be nice, but my main reason for getting it is the convenience of having a dry bed 24/7.

I like that, it's pretty sleek looking.. I had the snap on one and it was a nightmare. I did see an improvement in the MPG department on the highway too.

Yea i'm very happy to have gone without a snap cover...I've seen other people with them and the most common complaint is snaps breaking, being a %&* in the winter....so this setup should be much better for those situations....and I'm lovin the way it looks

yea originally i wanted to go with a roll up cause I throw my dirtbike in the back all the time...but this one folds up pretty small so I can just throw it in the apartment when I take the bike out, or even just keep it right in the bed.

Looks good man, although I think you left off the "t" in that back sticker on your window, then forgot to follow through with it

Well, I love my tonneau. But it hasn't improved MPG at all.

Very nice. It makes me miss my 03. Same wheels etc but red. I hadn't got around to getting cover before trading it though.
