Hi y'all. I have a mission for you fellow mem's. I need help on trying to figure out what brand of tonneau cover this is. So far, it is not an Extang. Please make note of the tubular bars(3 of them)in the pics.







Thank you very much guy/gals.

Yeah, the tubes right off the bat told me it wasn't an Extang. Plus, they usually have their logo sewn on the outside of the cover. Not sure who it is honestly.

Thankyou so very much Zach. The guy that I might be buying it from said he got it a year ago. I'll tell him if this brand rings a bell to him. I'll let you know what is up.

I was thinking of giving this company a call, so I might. I would rather email them if I could, but only could find their phone#. This is what I pulled up.

Eek! Non-adjustable snap positions, how stone age! At least the snaps aren't rivited to the sides of the bed like the cover on my uncles old Mazda B-series were..

I would just check with Ford and see what kind of deal you can get on their snap-on cover. That is what I have on mine.

I would take a pic, but mine broke (they said it is the first one they have seen break) over the week-end. One of the plastic corner pieces broke off somehow. It is covered under my warranty so they are ordering me a new one. The only water that has ever made it in has been from around the tailgate, and could be prevented by putting in some type of tailgate waterproofing strips

They are basically like that one but the middle cross-pieces (there are 3) are flat instead of round. It is also crafted out of aircraft aluminum if I am not mistaken so it is really light.

You can see a little of it in this pic: (It does not hang over in the rear, it was unsnapped)

Which? The moving snaps or the riveted to the bed?

The snaps being riveted to the bed sucked. Meant the snaps couldn't be adjusted for warm/cold weather and the bed started to rust around where the rivets were punched through. The cover my uncle had on his B' sucked ***. Covers as a whole have improved since then (the early '90s). As I remember the whole thing just blew off the truck on the Interstate one day. At least that's the line my Aunt fed him. The way she drives who knows what happened..

The adjustable/moving snaps is less of a problem, in my eyes. I live in the North-East, where it gets as cold as a well-diggers *** in the winter. It's nice to be able to flip the little snaps around and move them around (as you can w/ the Extang covers). This means less wrestling w/ the stupid cover when you've just tossed 120 lbs of sand in the bed in 10 degree weather 'cause you were a dumbass and waited for the first snow-fall to get the sand..

I had a downey sst cover up until about a year ago. Sometimes I wish I kept it but I never had it on. someone was always wanting me to haul something. It was a little different in that the snaps were plastic and they snapped into a rail. It doesnt have 2 pieces that snap together. Most of them by now are pretty good anyways, you should be alright with that one.
