Here is the picture of my bed cover. Tell me what you guys think about it. For those of you who want to know the details its like this. The cover is 2 piece flip up. Then to take it out you just unlock 4 clamps. (about 10 mins) It locks at the end, slopes with bed and oh yeah !! I didnt cut up my bed to put it in. You see the H in the back- Thats a light. I'll post more pics I just wanted to see what you guys think of it.

I also added a picture with the cover off.

Very nice! Looks similar to the OEM hard cover (w/o the H). I like the part that it slopes with the bed. Easy to clean. How is it mounted (pics?)? Approximate weight? Cost? Availability? Great pics. Thanks :)

Welcome to the ROC clayman. We're glad you're here.
Enjoy the ride!!

I like it. Thanks for sharing the pictures and taking the time to post them.
I have a few questions in addition to the ones above, I hope you don't mind.
1. Does the H on the cover come in only red??
2. How water-tight is it??
3. Does the part you lift interfere with the half that doesn't when in the upright position like the Honda tonneau cover does??
4. Does it lock??
Thanks for your help.
J.C. :)

Ok. Thanks for all of your questions. I will post detail pics on Tuesday for all you. We did some real hard work to make this cover user friendly. So you will be real Impressed with it. To keep weight down we had to take out some of our ideas so that if you wanted to remove it away from home this would be no problem.


The cost of this unit will be NOTHING like hondas or after market units right now. We have made 4 of them for testing. And here are OUR results.

a. Weather (Texas Heat) 100%
b. Rain (Slow leak test) 90% = needs to work out leak at the corner of tailgate and bed
c. Car Wash (Heavy water test) 90% = needs to work out leak at the corner of tailgate and bed
d. Physical Wear (Use) 98% = it is vinyl it will rip (but a car will dint too !)


1. The cover is fiberglass coated composite
2. covering is vinyl
3. The H can be any color
4. 2 keyed locks and a inside bed lock
5. 4 locking clamps with safety pins
6. The unit folds back onto the top have of the front piece


If you have more questions I'll be glad to answer them

Thank You
Swishman

Are black rails a possibility

I like it. I got the only hard cover that was made the time I ordered. It only flips up to open about 1/4 of the bed. I do not like it and have been searching for something else. It has been the only bad thing about my rl.
