Default Truxedo tonneau cover thoughts

I am due to pick up my 2009 STX hopefully on Monday. I have been looking at tonneau covers on Amazon and think the truxedo may be the way to go. Do any of you have any insight on this tonneau cover?

I had the Truxport on my 06 and liked it. Had the Edge on my 13 for a while and sold it for a Bakflip. It's a great cover for a soft roller. Kept almost all of the water out.

Have a truxedo on my '14 and I really like it. Sits on top of the rails so you still have the majority of your bed width and rolls up nice a tight right behind the rear window. A few weeks worth of rain around here and the bed stays dry. The only time I get any water is if I drive through one of my carwashes, and even then it's minimal around the tailgate.

That's good to hear. I was completely sold on a trifold. Then I started thinking and reading and I realized being able to roll it up and have the full bed would be nice.

I've got the Truxedo LoPro QT, around $500 IIRC. Seals very well, and easily removes in the fall when I put my cap on. I have had a couple of inches of snow on it as well, and zero sagging. Pulls tight so you get next to no flopping in the wind at expressway speeds. Did I mention lifetime warranty? I like the look of a classic tonneau, and this one fills that bill nicely.

I had the LoPro QT on my old truck and loved it except for this one thing, it kept getting messed every time a front loader dumped a load of anything in the bed.

So with this truck, I got the TruxPort, love it, it sits on the rails so no issues when picking up bulk mulch or dirt. It seals really good except by the tailgate, a little water gets in there every once in a while, but that is mostly water splashing up nad heavy rainstorms and car washes.

The common issue I had with both is the slight sagging when it rains hard or snows, Water and ice tends to puddle on it then. Nothing a good break-check won't get rid off.

I just replaced my Truxsport after about 4 years. Was still fine. Just vinyl was starting to shrink on edges and look work. Never had any water in box.. I now run a bakflip because I wanted the low profile look.

Have the truxport here as well and have had for over 2 years and still love it. Rolls up easily and out if the way. Also like how it seals. The snap style and peel and seal styles are a pita especially in the cold. Install is easy as well. Haven't had any water leaks in the bed.

I've had a couple different covers , but would hands down keep and get another Bak Flip G2 Hard tri-fold cover. The G2 will allow the majority of the bed to be used. You can youtube the G2 and see for yourself. It's also very low profile and can withstand up to 400lbs displaced across it I believe.
