While tonneau covers can provide a number of benefits, one of the most important is security. If you often leave expensive gear in your bed overnight, you'll want to choose a hard model, like the RetraxPro XR, Bak Revolver X2, Roll-N-Lock LG447M, BakFlip MX4, Tonno Pro HF-250, Extang Solid Fold 2.0, and UnderCover Flex FX31004, since nobody can just cut through them with a pocket knife. It is worth nothing though, that even soft models provide some level of theft deterrence because they keep your stuff out of sight of prying eyes. If you are happy with that level of security and just want something that will help cut down on your gas mileage and keep your cargo dry when it rains, the Tyger Auto T3, TruXedo TruXport Roll-Up, and Gator ETX 1385954 will serve your needs. The RetraxPro XR earned the top spot because, in addition to offering a high level of security, it is also very versatile. As long as you buy the model that is compatible with the Trax Rail system, you will be able to add on roof-rack style crossbars at any time in the future to increase your cargo-carrying capacity. The BakFlip MX4, Tonno Pro HF-250, and Extang Solid Fold 2.0 all earned extra marks for being able to support a lot of weight.
