I bought a trifecta it is called,, folds in three areas, light, does a nice job of fitting and looking clean. Easy to install, no drilling or such. They were on special at CAPS auto stores for 400 dollars,.

I just got a JCwhitney TRUCK catalog last night and they have Alot to choose from, anywhere from 149 bucks up to 6-700. They have descriptions about each one so i would highly recommend checking them out online or ordering a free catalog and you will surely find one to suit your needs and budget.

the ones with snaps are a B!TCH to put on in cold weather...and really in general

i like the ones that roll in and out from the front of the truck...kind of like a window blind

They now have a hard black plastic one piece cover similar to the fiberglass except their very light, one person can take it off quickly, their called Undercover, around $600 plus shipping. Also FWIW: their is a knock off on ebay a guy sells (its listed as a factory close out, a#2) for around $300 shipped, looks just like the undercover.
YMMV
