How To Choose the Right Tonneau Cover

A tonneau cover is one of the most important accessories you can get for your pickup truck. These truck bed covers aren't only stylish, but they serve a multitude of purposes, such as protection against weather, security for your cargo, and they can even save you gas mileage, just to name a few.
An open pickup is constantly exposed to the elements, which can damage your cargo, increase wear to your truck, and not to mention the damage of lingering water in your truck bed. With the right tonneau cover, you can prolong the life of your truck and increase the value it provides.
The question then becomes, how do I choose the right tonneau cover?
One major aspect to consider is weather. What conditions are you most likely to encounter, and how can your tonneau cover help? Every cover provides UV protection and prevents debris from entering your truck bed, but if moisture getting into your truck bed is an issue, you may want a cover with good weather seals or advanced drainage tubes that lead water out of the bed like the UnderCover Flex.

If you have to deal with heavy wet snow routinely, you are more likely going to want a hard tonneau cover that can stand up to the weight. 
If security is your priority, a hard locking tonneau cover like the BAK Revolver X2 Roll-Up tonneau cover may be an option for you. The Revolver X2 hard aluminum roll-up tonneau cover provides unprecedented strength, security, and simplicity for your truck bed, and with its no-profile design, it looks better than ever. This tonneau cover is made up of secure, automatic, rotational locking rails that secure the entire length of your truck bed on each side. The Revolver X2 can be easily rolled up with one hand to provide 100% truck bed access, and without blocking your rear view window or restricting access to stake pocket holes.

Tonneau covers have been proven to save gas mileage by increasing airflow and reducing drag. The more aerodynamic the tonneau cover, the more gas you will save in the long run, so if this is a consideration, you may want to look at tonneau covers with a low-profile design like the Roll-N-Lock M-Series, where the cover runs along a track flush with the truck bed.
Some of the most important points to bring up are style and functionality. There are so many styles to choose from, and it is all based on your own personal preference and what you think will look good and function well with your truck. Try to choose a cover that works with your lifestyle. Do you need full truck bed access often, or ever? What kind of cargo will you be hauling regularly? How secure does it have to be? These are all elements that are important to consider when looking at tonneau covers. At Auto Truck Depot, we carry the highest quality brands, so once you pick one you'll have it for a long time. Let us help you make the right choice the first time.

The Dangers of Driving without a Truck Lid

Picture this scenario—you’re moving to a new home, and you’ve loaded up the back of your truck with all of your favorite and most valuable possessions. Electronics, appliances, clothes, furniture, and everything else are stored in the back of your truck. You assume they’re all safe, so you start driving, only to get caught in a sudden and unexpected rain storm. By the time you reach shelter, all of your goods are soaking wet, and many of them are ruined. Unfortunately, this isn’t the only scenario that could happen either. There could also be heavy winds that cause lighter items to go flying away, or you could get into a wreck, which could send your goods bouncing out of the back of your truck and onto the road. The list just goes on and on, and sadly, these kinds of incidents happen all the time. The good news, however, is that there is something you can do to protect your most precious cargo. That something is to buy and use truck lids every time you’re traveling with goods in tow.

These covers, when purchased from the right retailer, are inexpensive, reliable, and built to stand the test of time. For a selection of products that have all of these qualities and then some, you need look no further than Auto Truck Depot.
