repair of factory '02 Tonneau cover

What I thought as a big bonus when buying my extended cab, standard bed 2002 Ranger XLT a couple of months ago is the tonneau cover from hell.
It's a two-piece composite solid cover, hinged in the middle, very versatile. But the locks and cables are missing (the latches are in good shape).
I need details to replace the missing items. Any info is appreciated!

That doesn't sound like a "factory" bed cover. I don't think Ford provided a two-piece hinged cover. But being fair, there really wasn't a "factory" bed cover as they are ALL aftermarket (mine is ARE brand). Can you provide pictures, brand name or any other info that might help identify it? Look on the under side of the cover for a serial plate. Most of them have one.

Hi, and thanks for the quick response.
It may not be OEM and an ID plaque would make it way too simple.
I took a couple of photos and I have the missing gas struts ready to install, and locks (order due soon) but my major head scratcher is the cables. Might have to make them up from a bike shop but I would LOVE to see a photo of an original.
Thanks.

Yeah, damn those pesky ID plaques!

I have never seen a cover like yours. Hopefully someone here will recognize it and give a shout out. Pretty nice design though. Mine is a solid, one-piece design color matched to the truck. But... it is a PITA to actually haul something if it has to stand upright.

When I bought my 02 that cover was in the brochure as a factory option. Not sure where to get parts tho.

Interesting. I got my first Ranger in 2004 (2001 Edge). When I was shopping around I had several to choose from, some with bed covers, some without. All the covers I ever saw were like mine (ARE solid fiberglass one-piece). You know how it is, once you start driving something, you automatically start noticing all the OTHER vehicles like yours. Seen hundreds over the years with bed covers... but not one like John Ventura has. I know Ford offered covers as a "factory" option, but they were all aftermarket installed by a third party company. At least, that is how it was explained to me by a dealer.

Ran across this by searching "2002 ford ranger factory tonneau cover". This might lead to a source for pics, cable schematics or parts?
