    So, you’d think that driving your truck with the tailgate down saves on gas eh? Think again…..

    That is what people do think.
    Some people even remove the tailgate. Some people also put a cap or tonneau cover on there trucks to save on gas mileage.

    With the 2 trucks I have own I never once put the tailgate down or removed it for gas mileage purposes.

    I’ve heard that you better off with the tonneau cover or cap is better for creating less drag

    For my own part, my thought is that if I am driving a truck – there is no reason for me to be frettin’ about mileage. I mean, get what I can out of it – but I’m not going to do stuff like removing the tailgate.

    Very true , good points , I’m thinking especially if you opt for the V8 🤷‍♂️

    One of the ones I am looking at has a cap. Others vary with tonneau covers or not. Either would be handy at times until you need to put something tall in and have to tie it to the front wall of the box. Keeping snow out in the winter would be the best advantage. My last truck had a cap on it. I used to throw a futon in the back and a box of camping gear and off I’d go. When you get tired, pull over, hop in the back and in minutes you’re in bed.
    Harder to put gravel, dirt, or manure in the back with a covering on it too. There are so many pros and cons to consider.
    Maybe a soft cap would be the best compromise?

    I think they originated during the WWll. Not sure on that but now these are modern updates. Lighter frames and modern materials instead of heavy steel hoops and canvas.

    Neither did I. What would be nice is if it was like a convertible top and you could have it easily collapse accordion style towards the cab when needed.

    There are at least 2 manufacturers who make them. These are 2 I have heard about by reputation.

    Those soft tops looked pretty interesting – even went to look up the information on them.
    And then I started thinking about where I drive the truck when getting firewood and such. At which point I figured one of those would be lucky to last 6 months on the truck.

    I would keep looking at them. I don’t know what the fabric is, but some of the fabrics today are pretty tough. It may be some sort of kevlar for all I know, and that would be really tough.

    I think it all depends on the fabric. Great idea, but if it’s only good for a few years…maybe not so good. Any long term reviews on them?

    Exactly what I thought also , hey if you want to make it even more waterproof just spray on the infomercial stop leak rubber paint lol , you will be able to turn it upside down and use it as a boat lol 🙄🤭
    Sorry , but in all honesty , I’m sure it’s probably something very durable.
