Overall, I am happy with the cover.
Secure, water tight
Relatively easy to install/uninstall (easiest with two people due to its size).
Looks. It doesn't look sharp, but it doesn't look too cheap.
Forward attach points and company support.
The forward attach points are mounted on the new Tacoma's track system. According to the instruction manual, the tie downs that also use the track must be removed. I did, and have not tried to install them and see if both can work together. Additionally, the mounting brackets won't stay flush with the top of the truck bed. They are not loose, and security is not an issue, but the bracket rises up off the bed rail. This may be contributing to the difficulty I have properly positioning the cover on the truck and still having room to take the cover off the truck (the fact that the brackets are too high may be reducing the space between the cover and the back of the cab, thus making it more difficult to remove). I've tried to tighten the brackets more, but don't want to over due it and damage the track system. I emailed the company asking about maximum torque on the bolts but received no response. Twice. I have considered a homemade remedy to wedge into the track and hold down the bracket, but the problem hasn't been significant enough to go to this level.
Also, while the cover can be removed and stored on included wall hooks, it does take up a lot of wall space in my already crowded garage.
