First, buying from AutoAnything was an excellent experience. Great price AND fast service! The cover is fairly easy to install, however I had difficulty in keeping the rails perpendicular to bed side. Could've had something to do with my bed liner. The clamps didn't get sufficient grip area when leveling rails - two fell off later and I had to reinstall. I'm thinking about drilling holes and using screws with any necessary spacers to make the side rails level.
The cover would probably be waterproof if there was a good way to seal out the water at the side to front panel corners. I haven't tackled that challenge yet and since having the bed completely waterproof isn't a high priority I may never get around to it. Since the bed leaks, the FREE tailgate seal that AutoAnything included won't be installed because I don't want to trap the water in the bed.
All in all, I am happy with the roll up cover. It is easy to roll up out of the way when I take my motorcycle with me on trips. I dropped a 2 x 6 in the crossmember indents in the bedliner near the tailgate. Then I put two large plastic storage tubs w/lids between the crossmember and tailgate. These work great for groceries and other small items I need to haul. And the cover keeps it all out of sight.
I intend to check AutoAnthing first whenever I want to add other accessories .......
