That's not bad at all. I thought it would have been much more.

Yeah that's one of the main reason's I went with it besides the looks.....I can take it on and off by myself in less than 5 mins (probably like 3) and it also comes with wall hangers so you can mount in on the wall in the garage.


edit: just copied and pasted this from the website.....

LIGHT WEIGHT - Weighing in at only 58 lbs, the UnderCover is the lightest hard-shell tonneau in the industry.

The I my experience I have with bed covers was with an 05 short bed Chevy and that thing was like 200lbs lol. I had no idea they have lightened them up so much. I might have to look at them now.


For the record if I am any where nor your truck I want a ride for sure. I'm holdin off on the mods I was purchasing an hoping for some decently priced Lon tunes from JBA. Then ill do throttle body when a tuner is released. I will be ordering my stall soon though.

After all this fun talk of tunes, I went a head and bought a Hemifever tune myself and it's a n improvement for sure. My truck could barely spin the tires over after I switched to my 305/45r22 Yokohama's.Ad now it'll light them up like stock tires.

Best 0-60 I could put down was 5.55secs and a 1/4 mile at like 14.15@98.5mph, all according to my Trinity. I have no clue what my 0-60 was before the Hemifever tune but I know I cut 0.2 secs off my quarter. My truck hasn't put down a fast quarter since I switched rims, excited that I'm almost back to how fast it used to be

Slight thread jack-
The Hemifever guy(Sean?) said my truck wasnt getting enough air during WOT and said I might have a dirty air filter. The only thingI could think of is my pre-filter is restricting flow or when my Volant's air filter fell off, and I drove around with no filter for who knows how long with no airfilter, something in my motor is stopped up or something. Anyone have an insight on this? I'm honestly not sure where to start if it's something other than the pre-filter just limiting flow.

I couldn't help you in that department but what mods do you have?

Anyway give me my thread back .......
I wanted to take the truck to the track today but It turns out the 1/8 and 1/4 mile tracks in my area are closed today. Which sucks balls because I just picked these up from Matt (Moe's Performance) this morning and just got back from getting the mounted.

They are 17" Pro comp wheels w/ M&H 275/50 DRs (28") and only weigh 53 lbs a piece....which is shaving about 25lbs when compared to my 22" wheels. I might just go ahead and order the fronts now too since it's such big drop in rotational weigh.
