Post Tonneau Cover
I am looking to buy a Tonneau Cover for my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab.. What brand of retractable tonneau cover can you recommend?

Post Re: Tonneau Cover
I've been looking a bit for my pickup. Knowing that I use things hard, and will be pissed if I can't walk on the thing or load some cargo on it I want something strong. I also want something secure.

Both criteria rules out all the vinyl and similar soft material covers.

The roll up ones generally don't give much weight capacity on top, and the roll up tubes in the front of the bed takes up a bunch of room. They also don't seem terribly secure when I've looked at them.

When I decide I'm ready I'm probably getting a diamond back HD. The HD one's are good for like 1,500 pounds of cargo on top, are super heavy duty with real locks, and you can remove the entire thing in 10 minutes to have a regular truck bed. The bad-ass-ness comes at a price though...

I just ordered the MX4 from BAK industries. It's a hard cover but allows full access to the bed when folded up. I did bunch of research and I picked that one.

I bought a cheap one (rough country) off eBay. Since you're truck is older, they may have something on clearance for you too.
