Something like this:

I know with a lot of the lower priced covers, you really do get what you pay for, with the covers needing to be stretched almost to the point of breaking, etc. I've talked to a few different truck owners who have had the soft covers, some have sworn by them, others have sworn at them. I don't want to spend a ton of money - otherwise I'd buy a new cap - but I'll spend more for a better quality cover if I have to.
One of the problems with buying from an online/catalog warehouse like JC Whitney is that you really have no idea what kind of quality you're dealing with until it's been shipped to your house. On more than one occassion (and not meant as a poke at JC Whitney; I bought some motorcycle accessories from them years ago that were very good quality) I've opened the box and cursed under my breath. My only parameters for the cover are that it not involve drilling or other permanent modifications to the truck and it be priced under $400 or so.
Anyone have any thoughts on tonneaus - ones to avoid, ones to look for, etc.? - or leads on used caps/covers?
That is all.
