I see everyone's post and it really comes down to personal preference. My Leer comes off with 6 clamps using a simple socket if you need to remove it. I wouldn't have bought a tonneau if I was hauling a lot of cargo. I used my bed very sparingly so for me there hasn't been a lot of inconvenience after install. Possible water leaks is really why I went fiberglass, I initially wanted a folding tonneau. I did look at a retrax and it looked well made. I just couldn't be sure how long the seals would hold up.

Those look kinda like the sport trac covers but stronger, do they leak? Easy to remove? They look very heavy, and expensive, lol

The only thing i don't like about retrax is of course the sky high price. But i expect my truck to last 10 years or longer and that roll top better last as long too.

If you want a retractable cover the American roll cover is awesome. I have had two of them and a buddy has the retrax... I prefer the ARC over all of them.

Thanks! I knew someone would have one. I think they look great, just have to justify the cost to the boss. (Wife)!
