Default Ordering a Mopar tonneau cover...

So I went to the dealer yesterday to talk to them about ordering Mopar Tonneau cover for my 2009 Crew Cab.
After talking to the guy in the parts department he quoted me a price of around $1090. OK.
Then he proceeds to tell me that it will take around 2-3 months to get it.... what????

He said they have ordered several in the past year and they always take a couple of months to get because the factory
makes them and then they wait until they have several going to a certain area or region before they will send a
delivery truck to that area with a full load. I really have a hard time believing this.

Has anyone ever heard of this?
If you have ordered a painted Mopar Tonneau cover how long did it take to get?

Ridiculous price . Go with a aftermarket . And you could have it within days . You'll spend about $250.00 . Then you can take the rest of that money and put it towards another mod .

I agree with Tom. I ordered a BakFlip G2 and it was in the next day. There are tons to choose from in the aftermarket arena. Save your hard earned money and buy a CAI.

Yeah, i was thinking about getting the MOPAR tonneau cover too the day I bought my truck, but $1500 was a little too steep for me that day, hell I had just spent $29k, and i started thinking about hauling things in the back, and the lack of clearance i would have with the FG tonneau cover...But now Ive been looking at the TRUXEDO tonneau cover, and looks like it may fit my style...Matter of fact, Im going to check out this truck shop today that sells tonneau covers and see exactly how it fits and everything else, and check out the different ones to compare...So, i think you should check some other tonneau covers out too before you go spending that much money for something like that....

Thanks for the info guys. I'm really not as concerned with the price as I am with the length of time (2-3 months) they told me it would take to get the cover.

I've looked at the bunch of tonneau's, flush mount, roll-up, folding, etc.

I really like the look of the Mopar tonneau. Mainly since its color matched to the truck and has the same "hood lines" as the front end.


Here's the one I'm looking for.

This one looks like the bugger you are looking for. I bet they get it to you pretty quickly.
