Recommendations on a bed cover??

Anyone got a good one they could recommend?? Looking for a soft cover with easy access to get to auxillary fuel tank.

It would be great if one our sponsers carried it as well.

Thanks!!

Re: Recommendations on a bed cover??

I've got an Extang Full tilt. It hinges up or it can be rolled up. If the tank sticks up above the bed rails you may need to have one custom made (which Extang can do). I've had good luck with the Extang covers but there are other good ones out there. The only problem I have had is snapping one up when it is really cold. Now that I live in GA, that is no longer a problem.

That's what I was thinking as well.

I'll probably go with what you have. Thanks for the help everyone!!

My dad has the Extang Hard Tri-Fold on his F150. It's a pretty slick set-up that would still offer access to your trasnfer tank. While offering the security of a hard top.

I'm getting the Extang rolltop. My aux tank is below the rail. Right now it's a PITA with my current cover. Just glad I usually only have to fill it once a month.

Nice Scooter by the way.
