extang tonneau cover question. and installed pics.

i just got this cover the other day from a member on the forums, it was still brand new in the box.
but i just noticed something today and i thought it looked funny, the back part seems to be wider, is that normal?

Edit, i just noticed that my bike made it into the picture.

I'm pretty sure it's just the lines of the truck that make it look out of kilter. I thought the same thing when I was taping off my bed to put in the Herculiner bed liner. Hold a framing square to one of the corners of the tonneau if you really want to make sure.

Hmmm, must be the 7' or just the lines on your bed. I have a 6' and it's straight......but it's a step side, so it's better.

That'll get a rise......LOL

My extang fits fine but I got a 6' bed wonder if it makes a difference

I see you got '06 tails too, did you switch to 2 bulbs or busy yourself with the dremel and keep 3?
