    I have been shopping around a bit and wanted to see if any of you guys recommend a certain cover. My truck will be outdoors all the time so I want to prevent sun fading and a cat jumping on it and scratching it etc. Looking to spend less than 150 bucks, and if I could buy it in person vs online thats a plus.

    That's actually a great question and I am curious on an answer to. Are there covers that can protect against hail to?

    I don't know what they run now, but I had a CA Car Cover, the Noah. It was awesome and lasted a loooong time. It was well worth the money!

    I would imagine hail would be a problem. I think you could throw some pillows under the cover to prevent that damage. But a thin car cover would be hard pressed to suppress a golf ball being teed off against your truck

    Wolf car covers are great covers. They can be somewhat customized to what your going to use it for

    I think a custom cover just like the Coverking is a good choice.

    Everyone I know including myself has gotten their covers at Cal Car Cover. The fitment is perfect and they have a great warranty. I would recommend the Stormweave. I think their website is ww.CalCarCover.com

    I use the Noah cover from CalIfornia Car Cover. So far it's been really good, and the fit is nice. It's been keeping my truck clean for about a couple of months now, haha.

    I also kinda like the look of the cover on the truck. Almost looks like I have a tonneau.
