I'm looking at the Pace Edwards Jackrabbit model for my 12 Ram 8' box. $1100.00. My plan is to make a divider at around the 3'+ point from the back of the cab. That way I can lock the PE in at one of the 12" spots and have that line up with the divider. It will create a box to store out of sight out of mind things. Won't be theft proof but will keep things hidden. That will work when towing and when not towing I can roll it all the way shut.

I had a truxedo soft roll up on my last 2 trucks. Last one was 7 yrs. old and still looked like new and never had a problem with the velcro. Got same for my 2014. Oh, and it gets rolled up a lot, especially during the summer and never had any problems with it.

Never needed a cover in 40 years. To me its just an other thing for thieves to brake to see what's hiding under the cover. I even use a see through tailgate for the last 23 years.

I have this one. http://tonneaucoversworld.com/access-literider.aspx I didn't want a hard cover. I don't have one of them there fancy new fangled locking tail gates anyway. I pull a goose neck trailer and haul alot of stuff I need to use all of my bed at times. 2 People can take it out and put it back in 10 minutes or less. Cost me 500 bucks for a long box. My local chevy dealer carries them.

Looks very simular to the Truxedo, but not to push them (but guess i am ) The Truxedo has spring loaded tensioners on the front and a release from either side of the bed. My old tri-fold was always a pain going back and forth from one side to the other to release the back, especially with the RV hooked up. Plus lifetime warrentee (which this time i will register).

I would much rather take my chances with things being out of sight while parked somewhere like a grocery store parking lot or restaurant parking lot as opposed to everything just sitting in the bed out in plain view. Just depends on what you have in your truck bed. I don't worry about firewood, water jugs, elec cord, etc. But other times we have some valuable things back there.

We had a pace Edwards full metal jack rabbit. Had it on the pickup for about 4 years before selling the truck. It was well built and we had no issues with it.

I'm looking for the same item. I came across a very sweet looking product at www.peragon.com.

Anyone have experience with this tonneau?

I bought the soft locking cover on Costco's website...Yukon something or another. I've had it on for a month now. I figured with Costco's return policy I could return if I don't like it or if it breaks. So far I like it and it seems pretty water tight. My 2 cents.

I have a 14' Ram 3500 and I purchased the uncovercover and love it. I have had it for about 9 months now with no complaints.

Does very well with rain and very heavy snow as well. Stays dry inside
which is always a plus for myself.
