No difference in fuel economy in my experience.

I don't calculate fuel economy. If I did, I'd never go anywhere.

I use an Undercover brand tonneau cover. It has an integral lock, and only weighs 50# so I can take it off and put it on by myself.

I use a cab high cap, and factory lock. I have a "reach and get it" stick like mentioned above. I lined the bed with indor outdoor carpet. It keeps things from sliding around, slides easily when needed to slide and is comfortable on the knees if you need to get inside. See my photos in the Gallery

Aviator, We looked at the UNDERCOVER today and ordered one. We couldn't decide which brand to buy. The weight on this one was light and easy to remove and you still had the entire bed space. Thanks for your comment.

How does that generator start? Does it have it's own starting battery?

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Smile A.R.E. is worth the extra bucks

I chose the A.R.E. topper for my '11 Ram 2500 HD 4x4 Crew Cab short bed. Leer has not yet released a top that fits the new crew cab model. My Great Danes love the dog pound when we are on the road. The Bed Rug works great for footing and is also good for all other work activities when I'm not towing. No change in mpg after install.
