New Tonneau

Finally got a tonneau on the Ranger. Wanted a tilt-up and not a light weight frame. Biggest thing was one that looked relitively flat. (I hate the "covered wagon" look. Got the Craftec cover with 1/2" bows. You have to look real hard to see the bow. It was $269 shipped and I'm really happy with it. Took about 4 hours and at least 4 beers to install!

Yup! Tilts on gas shocks.
Takes about 20 seconds to remove. Gotta get a tailgate lock. If I can remove it that easy, some one else can too.
