i bought one for my truck, and my new truck has one on it too. best damn cover you can buy for the price. mine was very good quality. the one thing is you dont want to use it if you want to keep water out. the flush design has a gasket around it and everything, but water can still make its way under, but not a lot. however, if you raise the cover after it rained, all that water will go inside your bed. i dont really care, because its just there covering my tanks and compressors...lata

have the checkmate fx.. dual locks and quick release hinges. The corners of the metal frame are rough and ubly, but ill fix em when i paint it. The killer is the shipping though. If you dont have a business to ship it to itll be even more expensive..I paid 120 to ship to east bay california. Mounts easy and removes easy. The locks were a pain though. The design isnt great in that the lock arms are rather short and you have to drill through part of the cover frame to get close enough.

I was looking at their web site, cause I was wondering if the cover mounts without drilling. I'd rather not drill a bunch o' holes in my bed. Can anyone help?
