Today on this 2010 Ford F-150, we are going to install part number 834532004737, the Access tonneau cover LiteRider. The first thing that we need to do is install the side rails that go into the bed of the truck. Alright, we are going to take our first rail. We are working with the driver side. We are just going to hold it up to the inside edge of the top rail of the truck and we will make sure that this edge is flush with this or maybe a little bit higher will work just fine. You will notice on the rail here that we have this plastic edge here. That is where the back part of the tonneau cover locks into place. You want to have this towards the back of the truck when you install the rails. Scoot it all the way towards the front and make sure that touches the front rail. Once we have it the way we want, we are just going to use a clamp just to hold it in place. We will start working on the clamps that will hold it permanently in place. Take your clamp, push it into place. I like to go as far as I can on the inside edge of the rail and try to go as far back as possible. 1:03
And then let us go ahead and snug it down. Now let us go to the front part of the rail and let us go ahead and make any adjustments if we need to. Alright, let us just make sure that we have it at the right height, just like the back side. Now you want to try to put it as far forward as possible. Now, there may be stuff inside the bed that will get in the way too, underneath this edge right here. So, just try to get it as far as you can. Now let us go to the middle of the bed and go ahead and put in our third clamp. We you put your third clamp in there, just make sure you get it as centered as possible. If you have something again underneath the rail here, that is ok. As long as you keep it as close to the middle as possible it is good. Once we have it the way we want it, let us go ahead and snug it down for good. OK, we have one side done. Let us go to the passenger side of the truck and repeat the same process. 2:07
OK, when you have your rails installed, double check to make sure that this flat part right here is reasonably level. If it is tilting up a little bit, like this, you may have to adjust the clamps. To bring it back down a little bit, take the clamp and bring it down a few teeth and then try it again. The next thing we are going to do is to do some assembly work to the actual cover itself. This is how it is going to be rolled up onto the truck, sitting flat. So, we know which side is going to be the driver side and that is going to be the passenger side. We will flip it back over. We need to loosely install the tensioners. Now, the tensioners are marked left and right, see the L here for left. And what is going to happen is this is going to get set into the track just like this. And there is a nut preinstalled from the factory inside the track. So we are just going to set our adjuster on top of it. And we are going to set a flat washer and run a bolt through it, just enough that you get attached to the nut and leave it loose. And we do this on both sides. OK, let us go ahead and set our cover into place, in the front rail. You also want to make sure that your straps come below, on the inside of the bed of the truck too. That way, when you have it rolled up, it will wrap around and just latch on the other side. Now, we have our rail installed in between our two bed rails. Now you want to take a second. You can see how it moves back and forth. Make sure you have it even on both sides. I am just going to use my fingers just to roughly gage it. Once you have it set the way you want it, we will go ahead and connect it to the side rails. And remember this part here, the adjusters, we loosely bolted on. That is why we have them loose. So, it can sit like this. This will wrap around this rail right here. And this part will actually get bolted to the rail. This adjuster actually moves this in and out, as needed, to adjust the tension of the cover itself. 4:01
We are going to take a 3/8 bolt and we are just going to push it through here. And we are actually going to thread it in through the plastic part here. It is a tight fit and it is meant to be that way so we just have to thread it in. You do not have to crush it. Just nice and snug will work just fine. Alright, we have this set. Let us go ahead and tighten down this bolt here. This tightens the adjuster to the front rail, simple as that. Let us go over to the passenger side and do it one more time. At this point we can go ahead and roll back the tonneau cover and check to make sure we have proper clearance for the tailgate. It looks like a good fit. Now, if you did not have the clearance that you needed right here, you simply just raise the rails up and down just a little bit to gain what you need. Alright, now we have a couple more things to do. Let us go ahead and unlatch the tonneau cover. There is a strap on each side and you just pull them to the center. This one is spring loaded and the other one is not. So, you just undo the passenger side first and then you do your spring loaded on last. Then you can flip it right up. Let us roll it back up. The next thing we need to do is this kit comes with a special spacer right here that gets attached to the back wall of the bed itself. Basically, there is a little gap right here. And it kind of knocks down on the entry of air and water and stuff like that, and dust. Basically it is just a big sticker that gets stuck up in there. With our driver side done, let us go ahead and do it on the passenger side. 5:48
Alright, while we have the tonneau cover rolled up, we will go ahead and show you the straps that hold everything together when you have it rolled up. This little strap just snaps together. Give it a little quick tug. And everything is held together. When you are not using it, and you want to unroll it to cover up the bed, undo the snap, let it sit below and just roll everything back. Then we will take the sides of the cover and just push it into place. It might be a good idea too on the other side to pull it a little bit towards you and then push down the Velcro, to help take out any slack. And with that, our install is complete. And there you have it for part number 834532004737 on a 2010 Ford F-150.
Today on our 2006 Ford F150 well be installing the Best Top EZ Folding Tonneau cover, part number B1611101. First before we install the tonneau cover well go ahead and remove the protective cover from the weather strip. Simply peel it back and remove it, setting it aside. Now well go ahead and take the tonneau cover, put it up on the bed rails nearest the cab, lining the front edge up with the bulk head of the truck bed. Now well go ahead and adjust it, make it even from side to side. Now with the tonneau cover in position well go ahead and get underneath the tonneau cover, lower the clamp, slide it into place.
Today, on this 2012 Ford F-150, we will be installing the Access roll-up Tonneau cover, part number 834532004782. Our first step will be to install the weather seal at the bulkhead, which is the front wall of the truck bed. We will take our alcohol prep pad, clean the surface, then peel back the 2-way adhesive and adhere the seal to the bulkhead. Then, we are going to go ahead and put our truck box in place, tighten it down so that we can install the front header bar of our Tonneau cover. We will push this up against the truck box with the weather seal facing the box and adhere the side rails with the clamps provided. Now, with our header bar in place, we can go ahead and start attaching the side rail.
Today on this 2010 Ford F-150 we are going to install the EZ Fold Tonneau Cover from Bestop. We are going to be using part number B1611101. Installing this Tonneau cover is relatively easy. It is very light to install but it is always a good idea to have an extra set of hands. All you have to do is start with the Tonneau cover and just fold it up into position and set it on the rails closest to the cab of the truck. Take it and line it with the front edge of the bed itself. You will notice the clamps are built on to the Tonneau cover itself and it is adjustable left and right to accommodate different bed widths and basically what you do is slide it over and adjust the clamp up and down as needed so you can start off with the clamp as close to the rail as possible. 00:40
Today on this 2001 Ford F-150 super crew, we are going to install part number TX590601 from TruXedo. This is their QT tonneau cover. The first thing we want to do is go ahead and lay out our parts and we are going to work with our side rails first. If you notice, on the rails here they have these slots right here and the edges are kind of sharp. So, the kit comes with these simple little covers that you just snap over the edges. Then go ahead and go on to the rest of the slots and cover those up. We can go ahead and start installing the first rail. 032
Today we are going to install part number TX777601 from TruXedo. This is their Deuce Tonneau Cover. First we will show you how it installs. Some tonneau covers actually sit on top of the rails. In this case, it is actually going to sit on the inside edge of the rail itself. We will start off by installing the rails first. It is kind of a good idea to have an extra set of hands here. What you want to do is mount it up against the side of the rail and push this little seal here against the tailgate just a little bit. When you have got it into the position you want, go ahead and take the clamps and install it onto one side of the rail and on the inside of the bed rail. What you are aiming for here is to actually have this as level as possible. All right, next what we will do is install the rails that actually support this while it is in use. We will just fold this out of our way, and the rail will get installed like this. Try to get it as even as possible with the other rail and then clamp it in place just like the first one.
