Gator FX5 Tonneau Cover
- Panels constructed of aluminum with vinyl exterior
- EPDM seals & seamless exterior provide maximum water resistance
- Holds 150lbs evenly distributed
- 1 year warranty
- Made in the USA
The Gator FX5 is constructed of aluminum panels that have an exterior vinyl coating. The exterior has a luxurious soft look, but the added security of the aluminum underside. While no cover is 100% water proof, the FX5 does a great job with the seamless exterior giving no easy access to water along with the EPDM rubber seals that surround the exterior of the cover.
The Gator FX5 installs easily with no drilling thanks to the clamp-on design. You only need basic tools like a socket wrench to complete the installation on most vehicles. One of the best features the FX5 offers is the ability for you to gain full bed access without having to remove the cover completely. You simply fold the cover panel by panel to the front of the bed, then lean it against the cab and secure it with the prop rods that are mounted to the rails. The truck can safely be driven with the cover in this position at highway speeds.
Gator Truck Bed Protection warrants this cover against any manufacturing defects for a period of 1 year. The cover also is made in the USA so you can rest easy knowing the quality is second to none.

|After reading reviews on this tonneau on the Gater fx5, I have to admit I'm impressed. I bought it and it's definitely a good buy. Installed very easy, and has done a good job keeping my truck bed secure, and looking good ð???|

|This is a very nice looking and fitting tonneau cover. The good points: Three of the sections fold up close to the cab to allow for, the use of most of the cargo bed. The 2 support rods that hold the cover folded in the upright position behind the cab is a nice touch and seems very secure. Not being able to open the cover without opening the tailgate first is a great security option with lockable tailgates.|
There are a few things that I think they could change on this cover. The bad points: The mounting studs that secure the front part of the cover to the track rail frame are a little too short to attach the rubber washer, metal washer and locking washer with the plastic thumb nut. I struggled to get these all on by myself. The rubber seal along the back section of the cover that meets the tailgate just covers the gap between the cover and tailgate. This rubber seal should be at least another inch wider for a sound piece of mind. To fold the cover to open it, you must pull down on a cable to unlock the latches. I had one cable I was barely able to get a hold of because it seemed not loose enough. It would have been nice if small straps would have been attached to the cables for easier use. My fix for it was wrapping some 5/50 cord around the cable and braid it for a nice appearance and it works much nicer and easier now.
Over all, I am very happy with this cover installed on my truck. It makes the truck look sharp and keeps the cargo bed secure and dry for those trips to the shooting range.
