Does this Tonneau cover mount to the Utili-Trak system? Meaning, is it removable or is it
permanently mounted (drilled into the body 8O )? I'm specifically looking for a hard
tonneau, that is removable and relatively light- as in, can I handle a panel on my own?

If anyone can post pictures of how it mounts to the bed that would be priceless. TIA!

thanks gfronty. like i said i prefer a hard cover but something light so i can remove it to use the bed for large cargo. i found something called UnderCover Tonneau which would pretty much do the job and is WAY cheaper than the Nissan cover. Time to dig around and see whether they're any good or not.

They actually were discussing this Undercover in another forum, and Ive heard some real good reviews. It looks pretty cool, more sleak than the nissan cover and its secure.

It must be on a different site altogether, because I couldn't find anything here with a
search. Although 05_NISMO_4X4 brought up a good point in another thread:

"I also looked at the Undercover, which I thought was a pretty nice concept being
as it gave you all the advantages of a fiberglass cover, but it only weighs 58 lbs and is
easily removed. But, if I out somewhere and need to pick up a large item I wasn't
planning on getting, I have to return home, remove it and venture back out to pick up the
item."


So now I think I'll consider roll-ups or sectional covers as well. Although I'm pretty sure I
should know on any given day whether or not I'll need full use of the bed before leaving
the house. But hey anything can happen out there. [Thanks 05_NISMO_4X4]

sometimes you just dont know what the day will bring. i had a hard tonneau on my last truck and i hated it. it was great at securing my golf clubs but that was it.

Thats why I went with the extang trifects just like 05_NISMO_4X4, actually his review moved me to buy it. Its divided into three, and folds small and is secure. I really like this cover b/c I am in construction and when I need to get it out the way it out of the way quickly, and also protects the item inside when closed.

any long term testing results? does the cover stretch over time? how about the color. has it faded? i may want a tonneau but i cant decide between a vinyl top or one of the other convertible models
