Smile What's the best tonneau cover out there?

Hey guys and gals. I need help finding a new tonneau cover for my 05 Frontier LE. I currently have a BAK RollBak Tonneau Cover and let me say that "IT SUCKS". I was on the freeway coming home from work and it all of the sudden rolled itself. It's broken so it can't be used. I was able to unroll it and use the side utilitracs to tie it, but it will not lock anymore. As well as it's not water proof at all. Can anyone please help me find one that's loyal, looks decent and gives me full use of the utilitrac system in the tailgate it would be great. Also one that locks so I can lock the tailgate and keep my tools or property safe. Thank you guys/gals in advance for any help.

Undercover is pretty good, but it's kinda pricey cuz it's a hard top. Fit all your criteria though.

Thanks Wyldcat89. A while ago I saw a Versa Cover and was interested in something like that. What other options are there out there for me?

I've got a Truxedo Truxport. It's a soft roll up, rolls up very nice. Only issue I have is the weather strip on the back rail (that seals on the tailgate). It's an easy fix, just takes an email and you get a new one in about two days. Great cover though. Been rockin mine for 3 1/2 years now.

ok first off, the best tonneau is the one that suits your needs.

right now i have a soft tonneau that i got for a steal and let me say i have been happy with it so far (extang revolution) but if i had deeper pockets i definitely would go with a.r.e. ( Nissan :: Frontier : A.R.E. Truck Caps and Tonneau Covers )they make some real nice hard covers. you may also want to look at the bakflip cover ( 2005 - 2010 Nissan Frontier All Part#: 26506 | BakFlip Tonneau Cover )

just as confused as you are

I got the RETRAX "Rigid Retractable" bed cover.
It locks, and is Utilitrac friendly.
Here's a few pics.....

the rollup concept is great untill you see how much space you lose up front... I'd go soft top or, reluctantly based on the POS standard G2 bakflip i have now, the HD Bakflip. I dont see a better concept for a hard cover out there than Bakflip. It easily folds up and out of the way, can be removed in seconds if it has too and placed in the bed or stored easily away.

I like mine, the retrax.

I got it on my work truck so it is not as nice looking as Katsu's gray one. Locks in any position 0 leaks (I can pressure wash my truck and it still doesn't leak)

06 nismo, White, Stock mostly, retrax Pro bed cover custom pipe rack. I thought I had purchased JUST what I wanted...UNTIL I CAME TO CLUBFRONTIER.
