I have the Undercover Flex Tri-fold cover on mine and love it. Flips up in no time, incorporates very sturdy hardware, and; when fully open, keeps the cover further away from the rear glass than what I had with the Bakflip.

In the past I have had them but never noticed any real gain in MPG

I clicked yes to having one it's not on the truck yet but it has been ordered and is on the way I went with the Bakflip G2 it's hard it's flush it folds up and only takes 4-5 inches of space and it's lockable by far the best feature about it

I have a soft cover with a bed liner. I went with a soft because there was nothing else available for a long bed at the time. The short beds get all the varieties. Of course I haven't looked lately.

We like the out of sight out of mind security factor or it. Also yesterday I needed a load of topsoil and with two thumbscrews, I has the cover off in about a minute. I'd also like to look for a power tailgate lock now.

MPG myth was busted by Myth Busters on one of their episode. It's not about tonneau cover though, it's about tailgate up or down but IMO it's kinda same principle.

I was excited to buy my Ram with a Tonneau cover, its the soft kind that rolls up. It is nice in the winter not having the bed filled with snow.

Bought my Ram with the Extang Tuff Tonno and I averaged about 21mpg highway with it. I dont care for a possible mpg gain, i like the covered look and the fact the kids cant use my bed as a garbage can.

I think its a city thing honestly. People just like to throw their garbage wherever they think it can annoy someone. I've seen dirty diapers in pickup beds, NASTY!
