Before you get a tonneau, look here:
It folds up like a boat Bimini when you need your truck as a truck. Allows me to carry bikes out of the weather, too. I had a tonneau on my first truck and this is mucho better.

Blocks of wood for stabilizing and leveling. Jacks, ladder, tunnion bars, ice chest if needed, dog (she has a favorite spot), dog bed, dog crate. We have a cap on ours and on top of that bars can be added to carry anything like a kayak. Our cap side windows open up. It makes it real handy for my husband to be able to reach in for something like jacks and not have to unload. Us short people are SOL on that part. I can a least open the side and check on the dog. Plus we have pass through windows to check on her. Highly recommend a cap over a flat cover. Easier to organize, haul tall stuff and keep everything protected from the elements.

Lol rust and a whole lotta dents. Previous owner was a landscaper and by the looks of it hauled large boulders while driving the Indy 500. Pulled the front of the bed away from the cab and installed a cheapo $100 bedliner. Problem solved.

We have a hard trifold tonneau cover that flips all the way up to give us full use of the bed if desired without having to remove the cover. It is the bakflip g2 tonneau cover. We have the fiver hitch in the center. Typically keep wood in a bin in the front of the bed. We have truck bed bars to help hold things in place. I usually keep a bottle of def in the truck in case I need it. Not much else kept in there. When traveling, we can put the generator in there, and anything else we might need to.

50 gallon transfer tank/toolbox with way too many things to list. One gallon distilled water, a gallon of DEF, jack stands, wrenches, air compressor, folding shovel, 12vdc water pump, jumper cables, a quart of motor oil for my outboard and a 3 gallon boat tank, etc, etc.
I also carry the second spare tire and the 9.9hp outboard and a 10'X20' astroturf mat.
We haul an 11' 8" RIB in the bed when traveling if we will be anywhere near water [always near water or I'm not going].
Wish I could use a ton cover, but the diesel tank fuel neck is higher than the level of the bed. I would have to cut a large hole in the cover especially if it is one of the fold up kind.
