I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago from JC Whitley- EZ Roll TONNEAU COVER BY BESTOP for 285. About 30 minutes install. It is a soft cover but rolls up when you need to use the bed. I agree that the hard ones look better but the soft ones are more functional. I am very pleased at the quality and price.

Here is a youtube link to the installation:

I just put a BafFlip 2G on my truck. Nice fit, looks great and easy to remove if you ever need to. Great tonneau and a discounted price on E-bay. I got 20% off.

The original poster has a post count of 1. I'm gonna guess he's no longer an active member here, let alone driving said ranger.

Take a look at the dates and times so threads that aren't active stay dead and we don't have to double tap them to keep them there.

I get your point. Thanks. Old threads have good information, but you're right. If they are that old why bring it up again.

Good point hamricksj, and I am just one such new member, and ironically, a new member who is waiting to take delivery of his new TruXedo TruXport soft cover. One came in last week, but it was for a fleetside, not a flareside like mine. They reordered, and I was trying to felt what someone else's experience might have been with this cover. While I can relate regarding the comment that this is an old thread, it showed up on my first page about tonneau covers, hence my response here.

Even if the thread is very old, if its all relative to the same topic, more info is available in one place. I would like to have a tonneau cover on my truck. It makes sense to me to only want to view as few threads as possible to get information about different brands. I do agree that dragging up old threads isn't always the best practice. I think its funny when someone creates a new post and people say use the search feature. Then when they reply to an old thread they are told to make a new thread.

We tell newbs to use the search feature because they're asking questions that have been answered in other threads. Answering someone's question that was asked 10 years ago is totally different. No need to post something to a thread so old, especially if the question was answered in the thread.

I've been using car and truck forums for over 15 years. I think contributing valid info to an old post is better than creating a new one. Instead of having to find and read various different threads about the topic being discussed. The info is all there to scroll through. It really does depend on what the thread is about though as to whether or not it should be added to or not. Its really no different than talking to a group of friends at dinner and someone mentioning an old project and then everyone talks about it for the rest of the meal. I just don't see what is so bad about it.
