The JackRabbit retractable hard tonneau cover protects your cargo and truck bed from the elements. Its durable ArmorTek construction consists of a vinyl fabric top sheet that is bonded to rigid aluminum panels, combining the seamless appearance of a soft tonneau with the security features of a hard tonneau. The stylish cover locks at any point along the rails, and it retracts easily with the turn of a handle.


Retractable Cover with Built-In Pull Strap

Handle on key latch opens cover


The original JackRabbit retracts with the turn of a handle. The handle - located on the key latch at the tailgate end of the cover - activates a heavy-duty tension spring. This spring automatically retracts the cover into the canister at the bulkhead of your truck bed. A built-in pull strap helps you extend the cover over your bed. As you pull, the tonneau will engage the side rails at 12" intervals. You can stop the cover at these designated intervals or you can use the key latch to lock the cover at any point along the side rails.


Hauling flexibility for partial loads


This feature enables you to carry tall or long items that overlap your tailgate while still covering cargo, such as a toolbox, stored closer to the bulkhead of the truck.


A hook-and-loop fastener strip is included to secure the pull strap up and off of your bed floor. You can also use the rear plate of the tonneau cover to pull it closed.


Angled Canister

Angled Canister


The cover retracts into a compact, angled canister located at the front of your truck bed. This canister protects the retracted cover from the elements, and with the cover stored in the canister you'll have unrestricted visibility out of your rear window. The angled design of the canister also allows for maximum clearance for your tools and cargo so there is no need to remove the cover to haul cargo.


Water Management System

The JackRabbit rails feature a water management system that channels excess water into the canister. This prevents water from getting into your bed or freezing in your tonneau cover rails during cold temperatures. Drain tubes attached to the bottom of the canister remove water through the OE drain holes in the floor of your truck bed.


Flush-Mount Design

Low profile tonneau cover


The black powder-coated side rails mount level with your truck bed rails for a flush appearance. This flush-mount design is aerodynamic to reduce wind drag, and it helps to improve gas mileage when the cover is closed.


Cover allows for fifth wheel towing


Even with the flush-mount design, the cover fits over most fifth-wheel trailer hitches. Note: The highest point of the fifth-wheel hitch must be at least 2" below the bed rails.


Stylish and Heavy-Duty Construction

Vinyl and aluminum construction


The JackRabbit deck is constructed of a vinyl top layer bonded to heavy-duty aluminum slats. This ArmorTek deck looks like a soft tonneau cover with no visible seams, but has the strength and security of a hard tonneau cover. A large seal at the rear of the bed closes the gap between the cover and tailgate to create a barrier to prevent water from entering the truck bed.


Security

The Jackrabbit provides excellent protection for your cargo when used in conjunction with a closed and locked tailgate. The heavy-gauge aluminum panels are better at preventing theft when compared with soft covers that can be cut or punctured with a knife. The panels are also more effective at preventing theft than tri-fold hard tonneau covers because the panels cannot be pried open at any point along the rails.


No-Drill Installation

To install the cover, set the canister in your truck bed and support it with a box or other sturdy object. Slide the cover side rails into the canister until they are fully seated in the rail grips while also threading the cover into the channels in the rails. Secure the rails to the canister with bolts and washers.


Secure the rails to your truck bed side rails using 2 clamps per side. Slide the clamp onto the rail, flip the pivot arm up so it is under the bed rail lip, and tighten the clamp in place. Shims are included for trucks with tapered beds.


Mount the top cover plate to the canister with the included hardware. Attach the drain tubes to the canister and route each tube out of the OEM drain holes in the floor of your bed.


To hold the pull strap off the floor of your truck bed, apply the adhesive hook-and-loop fastener strip onto the underside of a rail at your desired location.

Review from a similar JackRabbit in Tonneau Covers


4 stars, good quality product and packaging. Installed by myself in 1 hour. Fit and finish are very high quality. However...the drain hoses for the canister are both 3" too short to reach the drain holes in the bed. And even if they were long enough, the hoses are too big to fit through the drain holes. So now I have to bodge together some sort of clamped-on extension so the canister drains properly.

Review from a similar JackRabbit in Tonneau Covers


I should have followed the advice of using the box it came in to support it in the bed. I used a couple of coolers that were a couple of inches taller. That made aligning the rails with the canister just about impossible. After I switched to the box, it was relatively easy. The cover fits my 2019 F350 long bed fine, but the "kickstands" for the rear brackets don't really fit. Not enough room between side of the bed and rear brackets. I got them in there, but I may need to attach a small bracket for the kickstand pad to push against. It's suppose to push at a 90 degree angle or it slips off. We'll see.

Review from a similar JackRabbit in Tonneau Covers


Jackrabbit has been installed for a week now. Simple installation took less than an hour. Looks good and operates well. Having rained, it seems I'll need to add some weather stripping in some areas. Rails and head box arrived on different days. Side rails arrived with a 3/4" long gouge on the top of the drivers side which was disappointing. Overall happy with the purchase.

Just received my q25 hitch, one end of the box was missing and the other was torn up pretty bad, the two side pieces are scratched up a little, I'll touch them up with some black paint, other than that it looks like it will work good.

First WATCH the install video completely to understand the way to properly install (I didn't) After much frustration I stopped and watched the video and installed the cover in about 15 minutes with the help of my daughter. The finished product looks great and it functions as expected. Save the frustration and watch the install video (you tube) from etrailer expert.

We love our Tonneau Cover! It has been a practical solution for keeping items dry and safe when we travel. We have also had a number of fellow campers and travelers admire how it looks and how convenient it is to use. We would highly recommend this type of tonneau cover.

  • Which Tonneau Can be Used with Thule TracRac Sliding Ladder Rack on 2017 Ford F-250 Short Bed
    There's only one tonneau cover that can fit with the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Racks like the part # TH43003XT-785 which fits your 2017 Ford F-250 short bed and it's the BAK Revolver part # BAK79330 as it is the only cover that installs far enough to the inside of the bed rails to allow the uprights to clear.

  • Pace Edwards JackRabbit Tonneau Cover Comparison for 2019 Ford F-250 SuperDuty
    The Pace Edwards JackRabbit # 311-JRFA18A44 has a weather-resistant, padded ArmorTek deck laminated to rigid aluminum panels to provide a soft cover look with hard cover security. The Pace Edwards Full-Metal JackRabbit # 311-FMFA18A44 is a full metal, black powder-coated aluminum deck with interlocking silicone hinges to help the cover glide along the side rails. The differences are fairly negligible in appearance but with the # 311-FMFA18A44 you're going to get a much more sturdy tonneau...

  • Recommended Pace Edwards Tonneau Cover for 2020 Ford F-350 Short Bed Towing 5th Wheel Trailer
    For your 2020 Ford F-350 short bed I really like the Pace Edwards JackRabbit Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover # 311-JRFA18A44. The low-profile mounting rails sit right on top of the bed rails and unlike some other Pace Edwards retractable covers, there isn't a larger protrusion up towards the cab that could potentially interfere with a 5th wheel trailer overhang during towing. As long as your existing hitch fits under the top of the bed rails on your truck it will fit beneath the closed cover....

  • Tonneau Cover For A 2020 Ford F-250 Which Can Be Partially Closed For Different Size Loads
    For your 2020 Ford F-250 I recommend the Pace Edwards JackRabbit Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover - Aluminum and Vinyl - Black Item # 311-JRFA18A44 which is also available for the 8ft bed using Item # 311-M-JRFA19A45. This cover is a retractable cover.

This is a lockable cover that...

  • Tonneau Cover Compatible Ladder Rack for 2020 GMC Sierra
    I've looked at a photo of your Embark LS Tonneau cover, and from what I saw, it looks as if the side rails of the tonneau cover up about half of the top of the bed side, covering up at least half of the stake pocket holes. Because the tonneau compatible ladder racks we offer such as the Adarac or the Thule TracRac SR racks depend on the stake pockets as an attachment, it's likely that the two wouldn't be compatible. If the tonneau uses mounting rails that mount completely to the inside...

    A fifth wheel hitch could fit under a Pace Edwards Switchblade tonneau like the part # 311-SWFA18A44 that you referenced but like you said it would have to be adjusted low enough to allow that. Your other concern about the front of the tonneau be raised would be an issue if your trailer overhang was pretty close to the bed rails of the truck. You have to have at least 6 inches between the bedrails and the trailer overhang to not have interference. So if that dimension is tight on your...

    As long as the underside of your trailer loft sits up high enough so that you have the recommended 4-6 inches of clearance between the underside of the loft and the top of the bed rail, you shouldn't have any difficulties. This being said, something like the # 311-JRFA18A44 Jackrabbit that has the panel at the front bulkhead that sits flush with the top of the bed rails is what I'd recommend.

  • Retractable Tonneau Cover for 2019 Ford F-250 with 6-3/4 Foot Bed
    So the issue is that 6 inches of clearance between the bed rails and trailer overhang is the minimum amount of clearance you can have without clearance issue. So since you have only 6 inches now there wouldn't be room for a folding tonneau to fit, but we do have retracting options that would work great like the Pace Edwards JackRabbit part # 311-JRFA18A44 as a fit for your 2019 Ford F-250 with a 6-3/4 foot bed which I would recommend highly.
