I just googled that cover. looks exactly the same as mine. Same pull cable and everything to release it. I like how flat they site and lock once the tailgate is close and you can not get into it.

Maybe there is a mod on the forums or the interweb for it. Could just tie into the DRL and have them come on with them. or maybe wire them to come on with markers? Are you lights auto?

I had lights similar for my Tacoma. I just wired mine into the marker lights when i turn the light switch one turn. Was pretty easy to do so.

I've always got my lights on auto, I think there is a way to tie them into the DRL but I'd like the headlights to not come on with the DRL just the halos so that woudln't work. I emailed Jeremy at retroshop today so we'll see if he has an idea or a wiring harness.

I also installed a backflip G2 (today actually) and i completely love it. Deciding factor was also the ability to load large items into the bed of the truck when needed. Partsengine.ca had a deal on them a few weeks ago and I jumped on it.

I had a (Mostly) color matched fibreglass tonneau, it was nice and all ... but I planned on doing some camping, and decided to get a canopy ... got myself a LEER 100XQ, its perfectly color matched now, very happy with it.

I say mostly color matched with the tonneau, because in the sun you could see that it didn't really match. And the guy that bought my tonneau had a 2nd gen 1500 (Ive got 3rd gen), and it matched perfectly.

Figures that the Patriot Blue from each generation is different...

Paint can be different even within the same year. PRP Cherry Red that's on my truck has only been used since 2011 and there's 3 variances for it. Such a pain.

Sadly out of the 3 variances none of them are perfect. Looks like I'll be blending the door to match. A meet would be cool!

wow really? All three out that far out? hmm That is strange. Is it cause of fading over time?
Do the paint codes, or able to find out the paint code on your truck?

Has anyone installed one of the recon, or any tail gate light bar on their trucks?

Wouldn't be Canadian vs American versions, would it? Or water-born vs solvent?
