go to ARE website search for there closest dealer near you... you can only buy threw dealer for parts. get your serial # off the cover on the inside thats all you need...

be prepared to wait about 1-3 weeks for the parts they are painfully slow...

I just googles ARE hard tonneau cover and it was the first result.

Just find the contact number on the site and give them a call requesting replacement parts.

^^ lol sorry. I didnt have enough time between classes to read it all. Not going to lie but I wouldnt deal with a company that you couldnt call direct for parts or services. I know some prefer to send people to dealers but I would rather deal with the company itself.

Its missing everything but the actual cover any hardware that comes with it is missing.

I wondered why it was free probably cost more than it's worth to get the parts to attach it

once again prepare to wait a while to get your parts idk why but there always slow...

if you need keys get the key # off the lock too they need that should be like 18 12 something like that on the lock box on the inside

Yeah new ARE cover is pricey, so ever if you have to buy ALL the hardware, it will still be cheaper than a new ARE cover. I'm still looking at getting one myself. Finding them for a stepside is a PITA.
