I don;t know anything about them, but it would be cool as long as you could paint it to match your truck.

You could get a roll-n-lock cover. they roll up at the front of the bed when you want it out of the way.

Then your choices are more limited. Also, think about how long you plan on keeping your truck and that you get what you pay for!!!
