The UltraGroove is an electric, retractable tonneau cover with integrated T-slots in the rails that allow you to add a roof rack or ladder rack to your vehicle. This enables you to carry kayaks, bikes, and other sports and recreation gear while leaving your bed free for more items. The cover's heavy-duty aluminum panels help protect your cargo from theft, and the enhanced weather seals ensure your gear stays clean and dry.

Retractable with Remote

Remote control for UltraGroove Electric

This electric, retractable tonneau cover is powered by a motor that wires directly to your vehicle's battery. The included key fob remote activates the motor and allows you to open or close the cover with the touch of a button. An electro-magnetic brake stops and locks the cover at any point along the rails for customized cargo protection. Press the Open button on the remote to retract the cover into the canister. Simply release the button to trigger the electro-magnetic brake and lock the cover in at the desired position. Press the Closed button to deploy the cover. There is an optional manual switch available (sold separately) that allows you to operate the cover from the cab of your truck or at the tailgate.

A manual release is located on the canister in case of remote control or power failure. Simply pull out the manual release lever, and engage the kickstand behind it. This allows you to deploy and retract the cover by hand until power is restored to your vehicle.

Side Rails with T-Slots

UltraGroove Hauling Versatility

The tonneau cover's side rails include integrated T-slots that allow you to mount accessories directly to the cover. This Rail Expansion System (RES) runs the length of the side rails so you can positon your accessories - such as a ladder rack or roof rack - to accommodate different-size loads. This enables you to haul sports and recreation gear above your bed without interfering with the operation of the cover. The rails are also compatible with Pace Edwards EL200 ladder rack (sold separately).

UltraGroove T-slots in rails

These rails have rounded sides and curved endcaps that are sleeker and more streamlined when compared with other slotted tonneau cover side rails.

Angled Canister

UltraGroove canister with drain tube

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 useable cargo space in your truck bed.

Enhanced Cargo Protection

Drain tube near tailgate

The UltraGroove provides more protection from water and debris than many other covers on the market. Its 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. Additional drain tubes at the end of the side rails also channel water out through existing drain holes in your truck bed side walls.

UltraGroove rail cap

The cover side rails have rubber seals on the outside that conform to your truck bed rail caps and keep dirt and water out of your bed. The rails have seals on the inside to create another barrier that protects your cargo from water and dust. There are also endcaps that seal over the top edge of your tailgate to prevent leaking at the corners. Lastly, a large seal at the rear of the bed closes the gap between the cover and your tailgate to shield your cargo from runoff water.

Low-Profile Design

Low Profile tonneau cover

The curved side rails and endcaps sit approximately 1" above the truck bed rails for a low-profile look. This sleek design is aerodynamic to reduce wind drag, and it helps to improve gas mileage when cover is closed.

Heavy-Duty Construction

Heavy-duty construction

The cover is constructed of interlocking aluminum panels with a black powder coat finish. A silicon weather hinge creates a tight seal between each panel to prevent water and dirt from entering the truck bed. The cover side rails are also constructed of extruded aluminum with a black powder coat finish.


The UltraGroove provides excellent protection for your cargo when used in conjunction with a closed and locked tailgate. The durable 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 a tri-fold hard tonneau cover because the panels cannot be pried open at any point along the rails.

No-Drill Installation

To install the cover, place the canister on a support at the bulkhead of the truck. Run the wiring harness from the canister to your vehicle's battery. Do not connect the harness to your battery until the rest of the installation is complete.

UltraGroove installation kickstand

Attach the rails to the canister, then secure the rails to your truck's bed 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.

Each clamp at the tailgate end of the rails has a supplemental kickstand to help level the rails and prevent overtightening during installation. To install the kickstand, simply slide it into the grip handle at the bottom of the clamp. Rotate the kickstand so the foot rests squarely against the side wall of the truck bed, and tighten in place.

Mount the top cover plate to the canister with the included hardware. Install 2 drain tubes to the rear of the rails and 2 drain tubes to the canister. Route each tube out of the OEM drain holes in your truck bed. Complete the installation by connecting the wiring harness to the battery.

Installed wiring for cover (power and switch) first and then installed the cover .
etrailers videos were great


Had this for about a year and its doing well. Pretty good keeping the water out. I would buy it again.


This product exceeded my expectation! I installed it on a 2019 F450 limited and the only modifications required to the truck was to drill (2) 5/8” holes in the bed plug covers (4L3Z-99277B76-AA) to allow the drain tubes to exit the bed of the truck. The rail mounts did require me to remove (drill out) all the shims to get the required width for the cover. Thanks to both etrailer and Pace-Edwards customer support for answering questions about removing the shims.
The online instructions I downloaded from etrailer did not contain the correct installation widths for this Item, however the instructions shipped from Pace-Edwards were spot on.


I have tried them all.
full on toppers.

I will not be looking anymore. It provides the security that I need and the convenience with the electric rolltop.

Still looks mint a year later.

  • Will the Pace Edwards Contractor Rig Rack Truck Bed Ladder Rack Fit a 2024 Ford F-250?
    Yes, it will! The Pace Edwards Contractor Rig Rack Truck Bed Ladder Rack item # 311-CR4008 will work with your 2024 Ford F-250 so long as you have one of the following tonneau covers to attach it to Pace Edwards Bedlocker, JackRabbit, and Full Metal JackRabbit tonneau covers with Explorer Series Rails. This rack is specifically designed to slide into the T-slots of Explorer rails like the UltraGroove Hard Tonneau Cover item # PE87QJ has.

  • What is Weight Capacity of Pace Edwards UltraGroove Channels
    The ladder rack grooves of the Pace Edwards UltraGroove part # PE87QJ are rated for 400 lb dynamic. They do not have a static rating but I would assume pretty easily a lot more. Typically this application is for tents. I would easily assume that any roof top tent would work without issues.

  • Will The Pace Edwards UltraGroove Tonneau Cover Fit A 2023 Ford F-350 DRW 8' Bed
    The internal dimensions of a dual rear wheel model versus the single rear wheel model will be the same so the Pace Edwards UltraGroove Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover # PE87QJ would be a confirmed fit for your 2023 Ford F-350 DRW with an 8' bed.

  • Roof Rack that Can Fit Tracks of Pace Edwards UltraGroove for 2022 Ford F-250
    The Pace Edward UltraGroove Tonneau cover part # PE87QJ for your 2022 Ford F-250 long bed has tracks that are basically the same as the tracks on campers that were designed for roof racks. To add a set of crossbars to these tracks I recommend the Yakima 60 inch JetStream Bars # Y00426 along with the Landing Pad # Y00221 and Towers # Y00148 to attach them to the tracks. This will give you a set of aero shaped bars that are very high quality and quiet that also have channels on the top of...

  • Premium Tonneau Cover Recommended For a 2017 Ford F-350 With 8 Foot Bed
    I see the Tonneau Cover # 834532000715 you found is for a truck with a toolbox but does not fit the 2017 Ford F-350 with an 8' bed you entered. If you are needing a cover for this truck with a 18"-20" wide tool box the Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Hard Tonneau Cover # EX84488 is a premium version. This does not have vinyl on the top which can tear and become damaged. Instead it uses three 1" thick polypropylene panels. If you do not have a tool box on your F-350 the Pace Edwards UltraGroove...

  • Is There A Pace Edwards Contractor Rig Rack Compatible With A 2023 Ford F-350
    The rack slides into T-Tracks so it most likely would still be compatible, but there's no guarantee without the manufacturer or someone else actually testing the fit to confirm it. The contractor rig fitment chart I got from Pace Edwards stopped back in 2021 so I can't confirm that the # 311-CR6008 would actually be a fit dimensionally with the bed. You could check with Ford to see if the bed design changed from 2021 to the 2023 to see if the old fitment would still work. If the bed design...
