So far so good! The package was delivered at 1:59 this afternoon. It was sunny today, so when I got home from work, there was ample light to attempt the installation! I must say the cover came well packaged (UPS was unusually gentle on this one!) and all the parts were in excellent condition and nothing was missing. Total install time was just over 30 minutes, but mainly because I'm anal and kept making microscopic adjustments until I felt it was set on the truck just right! Installing the small bracket was a snap, (Suggestion here, fore-go the provided allen wrench and use your ratcheting screwdriver with the hex head!), just line them up with the bows on the cover and snug them down. There are two retaining brackets that fit under the brackets you just installed, they have nice big knobs and are easy to snug into place. Next, flip the sections toward the rear of the truck, install the rear two brackets and then flip the rear two spring loaded retaining clamps onto these bracktes and the installation is complete! Note to those without Utilitrack, these brackets aren't needed (but are included) if your don't have the track systems, so installation would be closer to 15 minutes!

Here are a couple pictures of the cover in the open and closed positions:

Looks Good !!. I ended up getting the Torza Top Premier Edition awhile back and it looks almost identical to yours. It has helped in the Gas mileage by maybe 1-2 mpg gains. :D You can remove and install within 5 minutes.

do you get any water in the bed?
Nope, it seals quite well. The front seal (the rail behind the cab) is quiet thick, from inside the bed you can't see any light coming through either. The side rails and tailgate rails also have pretty hefty weather seals. What I like about this cover is it's light weight and ability to completely remove and store the cover if needed. Removal and reinstallation can also be done by one person. I've been very happy with it so far...

There is no frame that permanently attaches to the truck. The frame is part of the cover and attaches at four points, to toward the front of the bed (these are screw down clamps) and two toward the rear (these are spring loaded quick release clamps). Because the tailgate locks, you can not open the cover without first opening the tailgate. Even the middle section is tight against the bed rails when it's closed, and can not be lifted away from the bed rails (a concern I had when I bought it). So, while the roll up covers are nice, the velcro can be lifted from the sides of the bed and you can reach in and feel around. This is not possible on this cover. Also, because it only has the 4 mounting points, the whole cover can be removed in a matter of minutes and the truck look like it did before, no rails still attached to the bed!

I'm seriously looking into a cover. How does this one work with the bed extender?

It works fine on mine, another member added a couple washers to the knobs on the bed extender to give a little added clearance, but I've not altered mine at all, and I've not had any problems.
