No room in the garage for the Raptor, can you recommend an excellent truck cover manufacturer, one that won't rip apart in the next storm. And that fits the Gen 2 model perfectly.

Best truck cover is no truck cover.

Honestly though, a cover during strong winds will probably just scratch up your paint.

Make room in the garage. Would you leave $70k sitting outside? I sure wouldn't.

Default Truck Cover
I purchased a cover from Covercraft (PN#C18041GK), that fits well and seems durable. They have many fabric choices with varying characteristics. If you want more details, feel free to pm me.

Personally I like the Revolver X2 Hard Rolling Tonneau Cover by BAK

https://bakindustries.com/i-21798990...-x2-39329.html

It's pretty secure, rolls up out of they way when you need the bed and keeps the elements out quite well.
It sits flush with the top of the bed so it should be pretty good in windy conditions.

Contact @RSiWORKS and they will give you a great price on one.
They also carry many more brands.

My garage is too small for my Raptor, so I'll be leaving mine out as well. I won't be using a cover but I have covers for two of my cars. I have coverking triguard covers on them but they are in the garage. Get an outdoor cover to protect from water and UV.

You need to be careful about keeping a cover on your truck outside. Scratching and sanding can happen. If there is any wind, the cover overtime can scratch your paint. Even if you get a super soft cover, the cover moving over and area of paint overtime can act like super fine sand paper. you wouldn't think this could happen but it does!!
If possible I would get a car port of one of those heavy duty tarp garages.

Opticoat it and don't worry about it. That's what I am doing.
