I have a tri-fold that works out great if you have a 8 ft bed

I have a the poor man's polycarbonate Retrax and it works great, just don't go through a car wash with temps like we get (-30's) and expect it to open again till spring or you take it in for an oil change. The nice thing with this one is I can take it off the truck by myself in about 5 minutes when it is open as there are only 4 clamps holding it on the truck and it is quite light. I would probably go with a Pace Edwards if I had to do over again though.

have a bakflip f1 with the bak box.....but when i put in the aux gas tank i couldent use the bakbox....and now neither of my big gennys will fit under the cover so its off.....but none the less its awesome....

i have a bed rug, and under rail led lights ...with the bak flip its like a GIANT lighted trunk...had to poke the drain tubes through my bedrug... im sure you could flip it back for use with a 5er...not sure about clearance on turning tho...

I opted for the Pace Edwards motorized top. Upside is that it is made of aluminum, very rugged, secure, opens with a push of the button, doesn't require a channel on the tailgate like some tops. Downside, heavy, and yes the hanging box does interfere with hauling, especially with a 5'8'' short bed. Would still probably do it again. I did have to modify the handle on the hitch so it didn't stick up so high. Just turned it down about 90 degrees and drilled holes for the pin.
