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 2007 Ford F150 SuperCrew, well be installing the Bak Roll-X Hard Tonneau Cover in aluminum and vinyl, part number BAK36309. Well need to begin the installation by installing each of the side rails. The side rails will be held on by these aluminum clamps shown here. You will need to go ahead and undo or loosen up each of the aluminum clamps before you can install them as they come already tightened down.Well begin here on the drivers side by putting a rail in place. Were going to use a couple of clamps to hold the rail in place while we put our permanent clamps on. The clamps well be using are just a couple of simple squeeze clamps just to hold it in place.
Today on our 2013 Ford F150, we'll be installing the back Roll X Hard Tonneau cover in the roll up style with aluminum and vinyl covering, part number BAK36309. We'll first begin our installation by taking the Roll X rail and installing the plastic pieces to the back of them with a two sided tape. We'll evenly space these as this will allow the rail to sit level with the side rail of the bed. Now that we have our plastic backing on the back side of each of the Roll X rails, now, we're going to go ahead and put the weather stripping across the front of the bed as this vehicle does not have a drop in plastic liner so we'll need this piece of weather stripping to make our Tonneau cover weather tight. This again has two sided tape on the back of it and we'll just cut it to length either using a pair of scissors or a razor knife. Once we have it cut to length, we'll go ahead and set the foam piece starting at one side, peeling the back off and working it down on the top of the bed rail as we move across from one side to the other.
Today on our 2012 Ford F150, we'll be installing the Extang Encore hard folding tonneau cover, part number EX62790. We'll take rail that's labelled "driver's side" and put it on the driver's side of our pickup bed. To make sure that this rail is in the correct location, you need to make sure it's about an inch away from the front of our bed. On the inside of our side rail there are going to be three stickers, one in the front, one in the middle, and one in the rear. These are approximate clamp location stickers, so we want to keep our clamps as close to that sticker indicator as possible. These clamps have grooves on each side. We want to make sure that this side is gripping the inside of our rail, and that the other side is going around our bed rail on the back side.
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 our 2010 Ford F150 well be installing the Access Rollup Tonneau Cover, Limited edition, part number834532004720. Stop fighting your bed cover. This one takes only seconds to open and close, no matter what the weather. After opening the packaging and making sure that we have all the pieces well begin by installing the rails onto the bed side. When placing the rail onto the bed side, well want to make sure that the two ends are level with the truck bed lift. Now for the time being, well use a clamp to hold the rail in 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.
