If you love GMC trucks like we do, you know that in order for them to do more for you, they need to be outfitted with the right accessories. While running boards, grille guards, and tool boxes are great, you definitely need a box cover to keep your cargo safe and dry. There are 2 types of box covers, and while they both serve the purpose of protecting your cargo, one may be more suitable for your needs and lifestyle over the other. If you are on the fence about which box cover is right for you and your new GMC pickup, let us share our thoughts!

A truck cap can cover larger pieces of cargoTruck Caps/Shells

These types of box covers feature hard-bodied construction with windows and are fitted to match the height of the truck’s cab. We love that utilizing a truck cap can make the 2016 GMC Canyon look like an SUV, so you have more style options. Another reason that we love truck caps is because you can protect bigger cargo that cannot be accommodated under a tonneau cover. However, a cap does somewhat limit the truck’s cargo volume and can make fitting large items rather challenging. Removing/reinstalling can be another challenge that you could face because you need a few people to help you, along with ample garage space to store it.

Tonneau Covers

If you believe that the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 was meant to look like a truck, then outfitting yours with a flat box lid known as a “tonneau cover” is the perfect choice! This cover style can be made from soft or hard materials. Soft tonneau covers are typically rolled back, offering quick and efficient loading for cargo of any size. However, soft covers may be more prone to wear and tear over time. Hard tonneau covers on the other hand, are long-lasting. These coverings are available as one-piece lift-ups or split increments that can be folded back. If you do decide on a one-piece lift-up style, you may experience difficulty when trying to fit larger items in the box, along with visibility issues if the cover is lifted too high.

  9. I like how you said that tonneau covers can be rolled back, offering quick and efficient loading for cargo of any size. I think it’s important to make sure that your belongings are protected from the elements by these covers, so that they (and your vehicle) maintain their value. My friend recently bought a truck, and isn’t sure how he ought to secure the items he frequently transports in the bed of the truck. I’ll have to recommend that he find an auto supplier that can provide him with tonnneau covers for his truck, so that he can protect his belongings as well as his vehicle from the elements.
