Default Extang Encore Tonneau install

Hello,

Quick question on installing an Extang Encore Tonneau cover. I just picked up a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie (Crew Cab) with the spray in bed liner. The instructions say to drill a 3/4" hole through the truckbed knockout plug.

Below is a picture of the front side of my bed. I'm assuming I can pull the bottom plug out, or just use the top slot? Sorry if this has been asked a million times, but I didn't find anything and I want to make sure I don't screw up.

Thanks for the help. I'll post pictures of my truck and the cover once I have the cover installed.

Thanks for the answer. I assumed that's what I should do.

I live in East Setauket now. Grew up in Lindenhurst, right next door to you.

How do you like this tonneau cover, I love mine. I put a 45 degree elbow on my tube and ran the tube out the top hole that is already open. Left the bottom plug in, works great.

I don't know yet. I ordered it on Monday, haven't gotten it. I might try using the top hole. I'll have to see once I get the cover.

I'll post pictures once I get it. I can't wait.

Default Installed cover

Ok guys, thought you might be interested in seeing some pictures of the cover.

Pretty easy install, just had a small issue getting the back passenger side lock to engage. It's still not quite right.

Overall I'd recommend the cover but I want to see how well it keeps the bed dry.
