I cant speak to any of the others, but my dad has used a Pace Edwards Bedlocker for several years and its held up well. He's not easy on it either. Lets just say it will support well over the suggested limit.

I have a bak industries g2 backflip I get full use of the bed and it's a hard cover. It's a trifold flip. I love it. Can't really speak to others. I did have a one piece fiberglass on my ford and it really limited the use of the bad for moving big items. So I will never do that again.

I had a pace edwards on my old Dodge Dakota pick up. It held up well. No water leaks.

If I was buying a new pick up its what I would get again!

I've got the same thing on my Dodge....works great, pretty much water tight and once folded up you lose very little (a couple of inches) of bed space. Oh, and if you need to haul something on top of it, I think it is rated to carry 500 lbs.

Sounds like something that will break.

See my above post on the pace edwards bedlocker. Again, Dads has survived severe abuse, holding men up, water out, even survived a wreck that totalled his truck and went on his next one.
