I installed the Diamondback SE cover and could not be happier.
Are you still happy with your bed cover??? Any problems with water leaks??? I've been looking at the SE for my new 2023 AT4X. How did you seal up around edge of tailgate and multi pro edges??? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I have not had any issues with leaks and am still very happy with my cover choice, my sons are also happy with theirs. My only slight issue is with the tailgates lack of sealing. If I go through a touch less carwash since it is winter here. It comes through the left and right space where the smaller gate meets the main gate, I need to add some weather strip. If you put a light in the bed you can see it very clearly through those spaces. Reality is not much comes in so I may not mess with.
 

Thanks for the reply and the info. I've been searching for the best way to seal up tailgate and haven't found much data online. I know everyone has a problem with this, surprised there aren't more solutions online.
 

I ended up going with the Retrax XR. Very easy install.

Finished up install of Diamondback HD bed cover. Very pleased with the looks of this cover. Install was easy. NOTE to anyone who buys one of these, be sure and read ALL directions before you start install. The first thing you have to do is remove the OEM bed rail caps and install 4 small hard rubber shims on the underside of each rail. I also added some D shaped 3/8" weather stripping along and under the outside edge to keep dust and water out of the bed. There is also a hidden opening at the top of each front corner that you have to plug up with foam rubber to keep out dust. I also added 2 Extang lights in bed cover, frt and rear, magnetic tool holders, and side storage compartments. Also installed tailgate seal kit to keep out dust and water. First test of the dustproofing will happen when I go to West Texas.
Also intalled Nxtgen spot mirror on drivers side, works well for blind spot.

This stuff works also

I went with the Leer HF350M and am very impressed and happy. It looks super nice and functions better than any other cover I've had.
 

I went with Retrax MX and the first one I installed had a crack on the canister side, which was causing water to leak in the bed. They promptly sent out a replacement canister and cover, which I installed Saturday. Definitely will report how it handles water this week, but it does look good and function nicely on the truck.

Looks great! How do you like the toolbox?

Thanks! So far so good on the tool box. Haven't really got it loaded up with everything just yet. I has quite a bit of room and left me with a 12 1/2" space below tool box to front of bed.
 

For all who have covers, I recommend the Swing Box, if you need some storage under the cover. Can put them on both sides if you need that much room. Also, they just lift out- completely remove easily, so do not block plugs, lights etc..
