tonneau covers
 
anyone know what brand uses a hard-fiberglass cover with a single T-shaped release/unlock handle in the middle pointing upwards? no logo on the LHS/Drivers side. im potentially buying a used one and cant figure out the brand.

A.R.E.
Extang
LUX
Elite
??? there are a lot of brands that make these things

unless they changed and the t-handle is the old style, all their current listings show a lock/key at the end of the tonneau under a little pivoting name plate

if it looks like these, it's an A.R.E...the best in my opinion...that's what mine is...

$1200 when new, hard to find used , parts are available.

duplicate keys are available for $8 on ebay...

none of those brands are right. the T-handle is vertical. meaning if you were behind the truck in traffic you could read it as a T. it might be a pop up handle too. lady says she got it with the truck and doesnt know the brand.



I want to know so i can find install instructions. im not willing to drill the bed at all since i have a spray in liner. some look to install with clamps. some cheaper ones are screws/bolts

I have A.R.E like that, the handle has a cover on it, push down and the handle pops up

any idea what model it might be? i think this is a discontinued thing.



also does the hardware screw into you bed or clamp on?

street_rulerr 11-06-2020 06:39 PM

mine uses 6 aluminum camper shell clamps, a bolt with a 14mm head to tighten. it came with 4, i had 2 extras. 4 is plenty.

i used this between the frame and bed to seal around all 3 sides.

it's also available at Lowes.

a little rain crept in before i used it. adhesive is on 1 side (bed side) in case i need to remove the cover and haul something tall.

original 2 sided tape seal tore when i removed it from donor truck.
