For those that plan on getting a tonneau cover for the TRX, what brand/model are you going with?

I am very interested in getting one, so I am looking for all the input I can get.

Be careful with the roll up vinyl ones. I had a F-150 FX4 and that thing would just hold water and really bow after a good rain storm.

I will probably get a Retrax. I have the manually retractable one with the canister on my truck now.
Do you have the polycarbonate or aluminum one? How long have you had it? Any issues? Fading? I checked out the site and they look good.

I have had retractable covers on last 2 trucks and they are great... the obvious downside is you lose about a foot of bed space for the canister.
i am going withthe Mopar folding tonneau on the TRX because I’m already giving up the RamBoxes, I don’t want to also give up a foot of bed length.

I’ve had it for 2 years. Zero issues functionally. I think I got the poly carb. Only issue I have had is if anything g scratches up against it the paint comes off so I’ve touched up a couples spots over time.

ain draw back is you lose 11 inches of bed space for the canister.
The truck isn’t garaged so I’m sure there’s a little fading, but it still looks pretty good.
I sprayed it down yesterday, but I live on a gravel road so pardon the dust.

I plan on going with the same one again

The Diamondback cover might be another good option. Just not sure if I like the idea of not being able to completely flip it up or roll it back to access the entire bed quickly.

Thanks for the info, I am taking a serious look. About a $600 difference between aluminum and polycarbonate. I also like the fact you can add the side rails to add a ton of accessory’s to carry all kind of things and still have the box for other items.

I paid roughly 1200. I remember the main difference being the weight you could put on the cover when closed was significant and I went with the cheaper option because I knew I wouldn’t weigh it down.

Like this one too. It’s good to have options.

I use the Revolver X2 on my 19' Rebel - I think I can just move this over to the TRX, that is my plan once i confirm it should fit.

I was looking at these for awhile after placing my TRX order. I think I’m going with the UnderCover ArmorFlex (hard cover tri-fold) due to its relatively flush design, Line-X coating, and ability to shut/lock with the tailgate up or down. A lot of reviews say it’s not 100% waterproof but typically very small amount of water leakage and not a deal breaker. Installation seems relatively quick and straight forward. Last fold can lock in place vertically and won’t rest against the cab.

Keep the ideas coming. I need to get one and I've never had one before. I'm leaning toward the trifold as I often use the truck to get fuel (5 VP Fuel cans in the back) and I don't think the rolling would allow be to just flip up the back 1.5-2ft of the cover to go get fuel.

the revolver x2 will roll as far as you want it too. 2ft, or all the way..

I’m planning on going with a Retrax. I had one on my Raptor and was really happy with it. Anyone know of the regular Ram 1500 version fits the TRX?

I have the Bakflip MX4 on my 2019 Rebel, and am very happy with it. Hard tr-fold. It does leak a little in heavy rain, but I think most do.
Plan to get the same for my TRX...
