Can anyone suggest a tonneau cover for the rebel, I'm picking up my next week and was looking for some suggestions!

Also is it worth while to get a hard cover vs. A soft one?

I just inquired at the Dealership parts department about the tonneau for the Ram Rebel and I gave them my vin # and they said that they have a hard tonneau cover with embossed Ram Head $1355.00 + tax. Part # 68249062AB

I bought an A.R.E brand tri fold soft tonneau for my 06 Ram just after I bought it. It's easy to install and take off, folds back 2/3 of the way to load slightly larger items, when its off its easy to store. Mine is over 9 years old, slightly faded, but in solid condition. No tears or deterioration. I would recommend a tri fold for sure. I hear the hard covers are heavier, more time consuming to install and not great for putting larger items in the bed....but that's just the complaints I heard from people who have them.

I just installed Mopar tonneau premium cloth roll up cover. I think it looks much better then the vinyl look. I bought it and installed but it came with a broken tie down strap. I called the vendor and they think it was damaged in shipping. They want me to disassemble it and return for a complete replacement. I can't beleive they can't send just a replacement strap.

I'm going with another roll too. Had a PE Jackrabbit. Thinking a PE Switchblade this time around

I have a truxedo roll up cover $425 installed. Looks great, seals really well, and being able to roll it all the way back is the most practical cover imo.

Just ordered a PE switchblade (for a ridiculously low price). I'll post pics in a few weeks when I get it in and have time to install it.

I just had the Mopar Tri panel hard tonneau cover installed by the dealer. What a piece of junk engineering!!! There is no way that this cover is water proof, at the forward wall of the bed there is a 1/4" step from the plastic side wall covers to the fwd wall and Mopar expects a 3/8" "P" seal to make this water tight. You cannot completely remove the cover with tools (another disappointment). The tailgate will not come down unless you lift the last panel up (this can be remedied by removing a tang on the cover that interfaces with the tailgate). Thought this would be a good fitting tonneau being from Mopar and all guess I should have gone for an after-market and deduct the cost from the truck..... This is my first issuet with this truck not a big thing but still very disappointing

Thanks Gismo!
Did you have to alter it in any way?
Oops, just noticed this, not sure what you mean by altering it?
No mods required, simple install.
The seal strips for the bed rails were pathetic, i had thought to replace them at some stage because they wouldn't stick to the rails easily, so, i just shut the bed and hoped it would sort them out over a long period of time.
I didn't install the water outlets, after a recent rainstorm there was little leakage into the bed which is good enough for me

IMO Mopar has become e a rip off artist with aftermarket accessories and most of it is junk
