Tonneau Covers

Which are the best options? I've had the one available from Nissan on my last 2 Titans. While I was generally satisfied with them I'd like opinions on whether there are better options out there on either price or quality.

Thanks

Re: Tonneau Covers

IMO, there are better options/quality out there over the OEM. Speaking from experience, I had the OEM and was very disappointed with it's quality. I then purchased an Advance hard cover. I had it on two Titan's for a total of ten years. I loved it for it's security, durability and weatherproof design. It was pricey though. I'm currently running on my third Titan a Tri-Fecta soft cover and I'm likewise pleased.

Re: Tonneau Covers

I am also in the market for a tonneau cover for my newly acquired, slightly used, gorgeous 2015 Titan.

Question: Is there any way to install a tool box AND a tonneau cover in the bed?

I prefer one of those all plastic, black tool boxes, but I could go with something different.

I just need to (a) cover the bed and (b) haul a few tools.

I don't want my tools in the cab.

Thanks.

Re: Tonneau Covers

The simplest way to have a tool box and a tonneau is to get a box which sits below bed height. There is a Utilitrack tool box which mounts in the rails, but I don't know if it sits low enough for a tonneau. There are also boxes which sit in the bed and don't rise above the rails, but you lose floors pace for shovel handles and such with those versus a box which floats on the Utilitrack or bedrails.

Alternately, one of the retractable covers might work, mounted behind the tool box of your choice.

Re: Tonneau Covers

I have had the Extang Trifecta on my truck for about 10 years now... First was the standard vinyl one that required attention to keep it looking good... Gave that to a crazy member on here after 3 years and got the Signature Trifecta... It is made of cloth similar to boat fabric... NO attention required besides wiping it when you wash the truck. I love it! It also has more substantial hold-downs than the similar Lund Trifold. The Trifold connectors just seems flimsy as hell to me... And lifetime warranty can't be beat either...

Tonneau Covers

I have an 08' and bought my first vinyl tri fold on eBay for about 115$ bucks about two months ago. Really pleased and wished I would've bought one sooner. Only regret, I should've paid the 500.00 for the solid. I'm very happy having a cover but the vinyl rattles and the solid would be more secure.

By "solid" do you mean the 1-piece type or the 3 or 4-section fold-up type?

Thanks.

That's probably what I'm going with next. I've got an OEM branded Nissan one, but you can tell by the tie downs it's a Lund. It works well enough, but the plastic tie down sections are starting to wear out from cranking it down so tight that it stays in place. Don't think it's going to hold up to much longer. Of course I may also just go with truck cap but that's going to cost a bit more.

Re: Tonneau Covers

Hmmm. I found this tool box that is designed to work with a tonneau cover (any type of cover), but it looks like you have to empty the tool box in order to close the box up.

The tool box folds up.

But you could leave the box full of tools (open and unfolded) underneath the tonneau cover.

Bac flip and under cover are probably the 2 best available for hard, foldable style
