Today we are going to install a tonneau cover on our 2009 Ford F-150. We will use a tonneau cover from TruXedo. And it is going to be our TruXport tonneau cover, and its part number is going to be 298101. To begin our install, we have to install a couple of seals that go on the very corners of the rails themselves. It is a stick-on affair, so it is pretty easy to do. All right, next we will go ahead and take the tonneau cover itself and the front rail and go ahead and put that onto the truck. That can be simply right up front for now.
Next what we will do is slide our side rails onto the side of the truck and push into this section of the front rail here. What that does is, it just slides into here. It is going to be a tight fit, so it may need some extra persuasion. Next we will install our clamps, and just for now we are just going to leave them loosely installed. Just basically we are going to put them in the spot where they are going to be at we are not going to tighten them down. All right, next what we are going to do is to go ahead and take the time to get our rails straight on the bed. We may have to readjust the front rail a little bit and make sure it is sitting on the bulkhead rail and then even out the rail on the side of the bed itself.
Next, take a moment to align these rails with the inside edge of the bed itself, because the outside rail you can tell is at a curve, and you want to go by the inside edge and and just sight it up by that. But for our initial setup of the front rails and side rails, we will go ahead and tighten down the front clamps. And this is the point we have got to do our next measurement on. With our back rail of the tonneau cover, we have got to bring this in and bring it within about 1/8 of an inch of the end of the cover. And then clamp it down into place. And you may have to do this a couple of times to get it to a perfect fit. OK, we will roll the cover back just to do one more test of it. OK, that should do it. We will go ahead and go back to our center clamps and tighten those down.
Next we will attach our weather seals to the back rail of the tonneau cover that just simply sticks on. All right, the next thing we need to do is adjust the tension on our clamp here. To make our quick adjustment here, you can do it by this little spin wheel right here. Spin it, and you can see how it moves back and forward. Actually it will take two or three tries to get it to the tension that you want to set it at. OK, then to unlatch the cover, just take this lever here and just push it back. And one last thing is to check for proper clearance with the top of the tailgate itself. And once you have it rolled up, you can actually keep it strapped in position with the Velcro straps while you have your load in the bed itself. All right, and that covers our review of part number 298101 from TruXedo, their TruXport Tonneau Cover.
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 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
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.
