WOOSAB is on a distinguished road
Default Tonneau Covers

Hey guys i want to add a tonneau cover to my ram 1500. I traded in my tahoe for the ram so i would have a little more pulling power. I had a hard tonneau Cover before on a ford pickup but i want something that folds or rolls back. Sometimes we put the 4 wheeler, or grill all sorts of things that sometimes stand up and i dont want to limit my truck bed. Anybody got any pics of covers they have on the back of their trucls? How they are holding up how well they keep water out ect. Not sure which style i want to go with... here is the truck..

I have been buying Xtang covers for years and have had them on 5 or 6 of my trucks. 20 min to install, 2 min to roll up when you need access to the bed. All have been bought through autoanything.com, think they are around 250.00 and usually free shipping. Here is my 04 with it installed.

There are 2 adjustments for the supports, I keep mine on the lower or looser adjustment. This picture was just after I installed it, the bow in them goes down a little after some time, which then makes them look sleek.

I have the Extang Trifecta, similar to the one shown by Get Bit except it takes about 2 minutes to install and folds up in 3 sections. You can also completely remove it in about 2 minutes. It has the same support ribs and is very strong. I recommend it to anyone who asks.

2 minutes, eh? Mine takes 20 because I have a beer between step 3 and 4.

As stated before Autoanything.com is a great place, I just got my truxedo truxport last week and installed it. I really like it there are no bows to remove as you roll it up they are attached to the cover and roll up with it. I got mine for $299 shipped as per this website http://www.autoanything.com/tonneau-...A2044A0A0.aspx Good luck!

I just bought this one off of ebay. I offered $250 and he accepted my bid. It's on the way to me now. So, I figure at that price I got a good deal. Just thought I'd pass this info on. Good luck on your purchase.

If you want a roll up the Extang Revolution is a great cover. Here's the link and a pic of it on my truck, sorry for the quality of the pic. http://www.tonneaucoversworld.com/ex...evolution.aspx By the way, this pic was taken right after installation. It has since stretched out and sits more flush.
