Looking for some pics of sleek leather covers. I want a leather one that has hidden snaps, or other ways of attachment. I don't want one that sits like an inch above the bed rails. Anyone make a sleek low profile setup like this? All the pics on the retailer or manufactures websites suck for detail on a classic body style.

Got some of each truck, they're not really close ups but it gives you an idea of how low profile it is. When I get my truck back from the body shop on Thursday I can get ya some close ups.

How much was that? Does it snap on for the outside? Or it is velco or something else? I don't wanna see little snaps every 6 inchs

I have the access cover low profile one on mine and really dig it. Velcros on the sides maybe sits 1/2" off the bed rails. Clamps on the inside to the bed rail and you can adjust the tightness. Then it snaps in at the tailgate. I put smooth bed rail covers with no holes and a bully tailgate lock and don't get any rain in mine. Dust from the tailgate but that's about it. Only pic I have right now is my avatar one.

I wanna say it's around $400. There's a couple different kinds of truxedos that differ in price. It's locked down in the front then Velcro down the sides, and a latch down deal with a seal by the tailgate. Super easy to install and me and my fiends have never had a problem with the Velcro or with the tensioning on it. Had my last one for 4 years with zero issues with anything on it or it fading the color. Rolls up tight to the front and held down with straps so you still have full use of the bed. I've tried the access covers (no offense man) and they didn't seem as flawless as the truxedos but maybe I didn't have as good of luck with that brand.

I think it's like anything else it's all personnel preference and sometimes just depends on the batch almost. I wasn't a super big fan of the truxedo on my half ton. It might be kind of hard to find something nice with out all the snaps for under $400. Maybe look for a used one or something.
