Default 3000 miles in 30 days

Well as of yesterday I have had my new truck for 30 days and have put 3100 miles on it. It's been in the shop once for a new steering gear and I have had the hard downshift into 4th happen 4 times so far. Overall I still love this truck compared to my 2013 F-150 5.0 Supercrew 4x4 I had before. I have added the following so far and really don't expect to change much more. Tinted front windows to match rear and put a brow across the front, shorty antenna, Husky Weatherbeater front mats, DeeZee bed mat, Truxedo Titanium bed cover, AEM dry air filter, AVS hood protector.

Here are some pics.

The day I got it.

Fuel mileage has been pretty steady just under 19mpg. I drive 100 miles a day mostly with the cruise set at 70mph.

Glad you're enjoying it. Tinted windows and that hood protector make it look significantly better, IMO.

Hi, I wanted to see how you like your Truxedo Titanium tonneau cover. I want a hard rolling tonneau cover and like this one over the Bak Revolver X2 because I think it is going to be more water resistant. My dad has the lo pro qt from Truxedo and it doesn't leak any water except at the tailgate which is prpbably from the tailgate itself.

Have you had any leaks or other issues?

A few times it leaked just a little bit around the tailgate. I think if I was to do it again I would have bought the Revolver. I have noticed that it is starting to wear a straight line across the nylon top from when I have it rolled up when I am hauling stuff.

Thanks for your input and quick response. The Revolver looks to be better quality to me but the Truxedo is a simpler design which sometimes can be better.

I am kind of in the same dilemma trying to choose between these covers. The one thing I like about the truxedo is the ease of being able to remove the whole cover with the two latches on each side (I'm not sure if you can do his with the X2).
One question I do have, were you able to open and close your tailgate normally with the cover already closed, or did you have to open your tailgate first then close the cover?
Thanks in advance.

I have to pop the cover up at the back and close my tailgate to get the seal to go over the top of the tailgate. The two side clips in the front really do make it super easy to take off and on in about a minute.
