The Rough Country low profile hard tonneau cover is an amazing product for the 2016-2020 Tacomas and probably the best practical tonneau/topper option out there for your 3rd Generation Taco.

If you like the idea of keeping the full use of your bed but also having a lockable compartment when you need it, then this is for you.

This tonneau was chosen because it is super easy to install on this 2020 Tacoma TRD Off Road long bed (Install is the same on the short bed), super easy to remove so you can still haul dirt bikes/motorcycles/tall items in the bed, and when it is installed you have a ton of secure and dry lockable bed/”trunk” space for snowboards/skis, camping equipment, luggage, groceries, etc. The fit and finish is great and everything works perfectly. No complaints!!

The big downside of this tonneau cover is that it takes over the factory accessory rail completely so you lose two tie downs. Its not the end of the world because you can add more tie downs to your 3rd Gen. Tacoma using the following products and we will show you what that looks like in a video in the near future:

Other problem is that Toyota Tacoma’s tailgates do not unlock with the factory fob, even in 2020. So you have to use the tiny key inside the fob which is annoying. So to fix that you can install this product that ties into the factory door lock system to lock/unlock the tailgate easily:

There is a great video out there on how to install this product, just search for it on YouTube from “Taco Twonz.”
