    Overall I'm pretty impressed. I did have to give up my cargo rails, but I'm thinking I can just put some D-rings at the original mounting holes. Either that or see if I can install the cargo rails a little lower.

    That looks clean! What's the weight rating it can handle?

    I think I read somewhere that it can hold up to 400 lb. distributed load, but I can't find the reference at the moment.

    Good call on self install! Saved you at least 500 of your own dollars! Been thinking of getting a tonneau myself.

    That's very nice but way out of my price range. Could you post a video opening then closing it? That'd be cool.
