    Hello all,

    I have the old Gaylord tonneau, thing is quite HEAVY lol. Are these thing worth anything anymore ?? I need to protect my tools or I would have sat it aside like that boat anchor spare tire.

    Thanks for the read.

    I had one on my 1st gen that I got for 200 bucks, but it needed paint. Had it painted for 300 bucks. It appeared to me during my research, that the average good condition price of a fiberglass cover with decent paint is 400 bucks used in SoCal. I just couldn't find my color. Lots of people use these trucks for work trucks with tools in it like yourself, so you shouldn't have a problem selling it for a decent price.

    Not sure if I understood your question right, but that's my experience.

    I'm getting a cool 18mpg on highway using cruise control. Abandoned the bulky spare tire. Dying to dump that hard heavy tonneau and see if it can get any more miles outta gallon.

    I wish it was lighter the matching green cover just completes the truck. It looks strange without it. It's like a signature item on it lol

    Edit....or get a job using my head not my tools anymore lolol fat chance in HELL

    18mpg sounds pretty good for your truck, even a V6. Not sure that removing it would improve mpg. I feel like the weight of it does not affect mpg. Some say it might decrease with aerodynamics. Removing it to save .2 mpg (or whatever) would take a long time of savings to pay for stolen tools or wear and tear on them. A tune up, or tire choice might help, but even then it would take a lot of savings to pay for tires.

    Exactly what I was thinking. What are the chances he created a new account using a different screen name?
