Hey guys!

After many hours of online searching and researching I've narrow down my choices to two tonneau covers, the Leer 700 and the Leer 550:

Automotive exterior Automotive tail & brake light Truck bed part Automotive lighting Trunk
Leer 700

Automotive exterior Automotive tail & brake light Truck bed part Vehicle Car
Leer 550

I have my preference, however, I wanted a 2nd (or 20th) opinion. What do you guys think?

If I had to buy one it would be the 550. I used to have an ARE with the raised center and never cared for it. That 550 is smooth

Looking at those pictures of just the bed of the truck you can't see that the 700 mirrors the lines in the hood of the truck. When viewed in its entirety the truck with the 700 would look much better than it does in the above pic. Another point to consider. The flair out at the top of our tailgates will have a great inpact on the look of whatever cover you choose. Its best to gauge whether you like a cover or not by how it looks on a Ford because it will be different due to the flair than what you see in the listed pics. Now that that's out of the way. I like them both.:D

OK, i wasnt gunna play this game but everybody seems to say they like the smooth look.
i personally dont think my truck has anything smooth on it at all and like wendy said it will look different on a ford due to the tailgate than the chevy picture.
i would prefer the 700 to be a little different and have some lines

you could have the ecobeast decals cut smaller and even run them on the raised line up the center rib

Yep, I vote for the 700 myself. Now if the 550 were finished in a textured finish in a contrasting color it would be a much tougher call. But as offered here as if I would have to give the 700 my thumbs up.
