Soft or hard shell - its not a taco question

Recommended Posts

Anyone using soft shells for the truck bed? Thinking I might want one to protect goods from elements, but also easy access for loading motos. I was thinking a rack on top too for bicycles and kayaks. Can-backs are pur-rye-cee.

Hard shell is too much work for motos use.

I’ve never seen a soft shell until this. That looks sweet! I’d be afraid to use one around my area, too many assholes trying to make a quick come up off someone else’s hard work.

I went with an undercover because of prior use of one. New design really needs two people to take off. On the flip side I know it will last longer. At least I hope. 

 

If you want a trifold I would look at a lomax. I really came close to getting it but went the other route. 

 

The soft covers tend to leak according to the couple people I’ve talked to that had one. I’m sure some are better than others

I like how this one looks and seem very well fitted, but again Can-backs are pur-rye-cee for a soft top.

Not really worried about leaking, just looking for some basic coverage from elements and keeping thieves away (by slowing them down a little ) from my stuff while in the bed while I turn my back for a moment. 

I thought about a tonneau, but was liking the extra height of the shells for vertical storage space. But then again, a tonneau provides zero visual obstruction like a shell. 

I like that the Lomax has a very low profile and is a no-drill install. 

These are a bit pricey and don't really like the box space taken up near the cab, but pretty secure it appears.

I've been happy with my TonnoPro Hard Fold... Looks like a soft folding cover but, has aluminum skin underneath to resist thieves...
