This is something that you will need to decide based on the pros and cons of each. I will agree with the folks that tell you that the boot will leak, squeak and rub the paint off the cab of your truck. All by the way are controllable with regular maintenance. But I will also stand firm on the fact that the boot allows for much better visibility, virtually weather free access to the bed from the cab and one more benefit that few think of, no wind turbulence noise. Consider what you use your truck for and what’s important to you when you make your decision.
