Default Leer 700 & Bedrug

The dealer arranged both of these options within just a couple of days of picking up my new truck, otherwise I would have been checking in with the site sponsor vendors for these great mods.

BEDRUG: I was tempted to have the bed sprayed with a liner, but after quite a bit of research I decided to go with the Bedrug. It's durable enough to handle anything the spray on liners can, plus it won't scratch anything that travels back there which some spray liners have been known to do. The carpet is actually made from a similar plastic as the shell for vehicle batteries and is nearly indestructible. You can toss mulch, dirt, gravel, on it and then rinse it off without any problems. Another plus is you can take it with you to your next truck someday!

Leer 700: From the research I did, this cover came out tops (pun intended) in every category. I prefer the integrated locks with the vehicle to make this more of a "massive trunk for the RAM" so I don't have to deal with a key as I'm in that thing more than a couple of times a day. The hinges are strong enough to keep it from swaying left/right, and can even hold it in place in open position while driving (not high speeds above 60mph though). It comes off pretty easy too if absolutely necessary for large loads. This thing is absolutely water tight! We hammered it with a water hose and high pressure nozzle from several angles and ZERO water got inside. It also has a nice appearance that goes well with the RAM styling.

PRO TIP: "Removing the cover" - These covers are very sturdy and well designed to prevent water and the environment (or thieves) from entering the bed area to securely stow your gear and items (no passengers!), BUT they are not made to set down on the ground or the edges may crack under the stress. They are designed to be on the truck, so if you need to remove it, be sure to set it on something sturdy (like a pair of sawhorses) so the edges are not bearing the weight of the cover.


Options included with this cover:
  • A "wired" dome light (there is another option for a battery powered dome, but I would rather not have to change batteries)
  • The cover locks are integrated with the vehicle unlock/lock function (works with key fob as well as locking vehicle from inside the cab)


Links with the info for each (and I'm sure some of the great site sponsors/vendors have more info on them as well):

Yeah, I like that setup. Had a similar one on my GM diesel crewcab. And I've installed Leer toppers or tonneau covers on other trucks. It's good stuff!

A very nice set up ya got there. Those bed rugs are growing on me... I just wonder how they are with mold growth if they don't dry properly and the added humidity with a toneau.

Your truck looks great! Does the carpet come standard on these types of covers or was that additional?

Thanx

Great question. I'm not sure if that comes standard on the cover or if they added it as part of the bedrug installation. I got them both at the same time and they do match the color between the liner on the cover and the rest of the bedrug, so I'm guessing it was added with the bedrug.

**UPDATED**

Well I did some searching and found some pics and diagrams where they show a headliner cover on inside of the Leer. So it looks like that comes standard, and it just happens to match the color of the bedrug I went with.
