Just Installed an Extang Tonneau

The cap is gone and I just installed an Extang Full-Tilt Tonneau. I will say that it is a quality product and extremely well made. The two areas I see where I will need to do something is to find a way to better lock down the back end of the railing by the cab and add some sort of weather stripping on the tailgate. I think I'll be adding the powered poplock on the tailgate as well. Anyhow, thanks Redneckstone for recommending the Full Tilt. It rocks :)

No problem. the weather stripping on the tailgate is a great idea hell i did it. for some reason they used that small stuff and it doesnt touch.. and why do you need to lock it down better in the back by the cab mine doesnt have any issues and its installed the same way the recommend it and its been on what over a year now...

nothing much really, just two wires! I wired it to my power door locks, so it unlocks/locks with them.

I have had an Extang for the last 3 years. I love it. Won't use anything else. I have the R/T model.
