|Very satisfied with the fit and look of the F1. Installation was what I expected, about 40 minutes by myself.|

|Well made and very easy to install. My only gripe is the instructions weren't clear on the corner shims. I couldn't figure out where they needed to go yet the instructions indicated they were required.|

|I was surprised - the cover looks like it was described on line, went on quickly with no problems, excellent quality. I'm not exactly Mr. Mechanic, but the rails and cover went on perfect on the first try - I didn't have to undo and redo a single step in the installation process. I'd definitely recommend this. It wasn't the cheapest cover available, but worth every penny. |
This is a PS that I'm writing about two months after buying the cover. I have a Dodge 2500 Cummins with a full length bed. Over the weekend I drove about 550 miles, mostly on interstate. Histroically I got about 13 or 14 mpg on the highway and about 11 around town. As I was tooling along with nothing to do I thought I'd peek at the gas mileage and I about crapped my pants, it said I'd averaged 18.1 for the last 400 miles (some in town) and on the flat doing 67 mph I was getting 20 to 21 mpg. That's about a 30% increase in gas mileage. As far as I know having the cover on is the only difference. Same tires, tire pressure, etc. etc. So as best as I can tell the cover made a HUGE difference in my mileage.
|I went with the F1 model for two reasons: 1) a black aluminum surface baking in the hot sun should be a frying pan or a solar panel, not my bed cover. This material stays cool to the touch, weighs less and is stronger. As for weighing less, I can't say, it's still pretty heavy, but then again, I have it installed on a Dodge 3500 dually with an 8 foot bed. You're not actually going to flip this thing open from the side of the truck. I'm 6'0" and 200 lbs and I'm in the the truck bed to roll this to the front. Sure, the back is fine, but by the third panel, you need to be in the truck. I'd estimate the entire folding cover unit is 80 lbs. Be careful of your lower back when handling!|
Another concern is the hardware to "prop it up" against the window -- a a disappointment. On my first outing with bikes in the back, I had it propped up and at 80 mph, because the corners of it are in the wind-stream, the plastic support mechanism began to fail! It was coming apart. Also, some of the rubber grommets are askew and won't adhere properly. They were affixed, it was rolled up and they got bound up in it during assembly. I need to find out if I can get rubber strips to replace a couple that are all "smooshed" and refusing to stay affixed and in place.
Otherwise, it was pretty easy to install, the surface is very strong and stays cool to the touch, it looks great on the truck and it locks. It should hold up fine.
|Perfect fit. Don't know if I really like it but it is 100% better than a soft cover. Seals great. This would have got 5 out of 5 if the section next to the cab folded without having to fold all the others. Good product|
