Tonneau Cover Question

Does anyone know or have a tonneau cover that fits into the utilitrack? I dont want some cheap floppin in the wind thing, I want a secure cover for my truck. I have an 09 Crew.

Thanks!

I'm not aware of one specifically that uses the Utilitrack to attach.

Do be warned though that some covers will interfere with the track, more specifically the mounting brackets will.

I had to modify my tonneau cover attachment brackets (4 of them) to allow use of the Utilitrack after installing the cover.

Thanks for the info. I saw one place online that makes a cover to fit the Utilitrack, but it looks like it takes a lot of work to install. A 2-3 piece setup would be nice for me, since I would like to remove it sometimes. I guess it doesnt have to fit into the utilitrack, but that would be nice if somehow it did.

I checked out your pics, I have an Black Altima SER too. Funny.

I have an access cover made by agricover, it BARELY moves in the wind. It's a very tight cover. No wind noise at all made by it. There is a little flap that is designed with the cover to go down in between the cab and the bed that actually caused a lot of wind noise. We took it back to the shop we got it installed at and they just flipped it inside the bed and the noise was gone.

I have an 09 long bed, I chose a hard top cover by "undercover"

link to Undercover web page.

Undercover ™ is the new standard in tonneau covers. Our Patented X-effect ™ design and advanced polymers give this tonneau cover unparalleled strength and durability at a fraction of the weight and less cost than fiberglass..

Installation Guide link PDF.

http://www.undercoverinfo.com/instal...XtdCab_sfs.pdf

Its lockable, and made from ABS plastic.

Brackets are not in the way of the utlility track.

It can be removed with out tools by your self (50LBS) in 5 minutes or less and reinstall is as easy.

All the mounting brackets stay attached to your truck so it stays lined up for reinstall.

You unscrew 1 hand knob on each side,pull 1 spring loaded gas shock off bracket on each and tuck up onto lid,close lid slid it back 4" and lift off bed DONE!

I do not have anything to do with the company just happy customer.

On all my other trucks I had fiberglass lids,they were lockable, ARE, Century they were good products they are 500-600LBS. They could be removed in 10 minutes with help. Not removable by yourself, had to be resealed and lined back up.

The "undercover" for my 09 cc lb was about $700.00 a fiberglass ARE or Century was about $1100.00 or more with options.

Take a look in my gallery for a pic on my truck, the "undercover" is paintable but I think the black looks good on the Red Brick.

Regards
Don

Cool about the SE-R. I love that machine.

I have an Extang EZ-Tilt if you didn't catch that in my gallery mods list.
It's a great cover, tilts on struts with the flip of two levers for access to the bed or removes in under 30 seconds in one piece (on a frame) to leave behind for hauling something taller than the bed.

Other than the modifications upon installing it I would have to say it's a great cover. I had one on my last truck.

If you're going to have a cover nothing sucks worse than having it rolled up behind the cab all the time because it's such a pain to roll and un-roll when you need access to the bed.

Retrax is a rolling cover that is hard and lockable, the mounting brackets bolt in behind the utilitrac thus giving you full use of the track. It is what I have on my truck, has worked great, looks good and I have had no problems with it. I can take it off in about 15 min. (well I use to) I have a rack mounted above the cover so I don't remove it any more. It is still possible but no in 15 min. now.

i have been nothing but pleased with my Downey Products SST (slant side tonneau cover) which is soft with the 2 rib support sections. i'm on the highway every day, 120 miles round trip and it really doesn't flap much at all. wicked easy to take on and off... i keep a set of small bungee cords in my truck in case i need to roll it up. never had a single drop of water enter the bed when i wash it (go through the car wash). i think it looks fantastic... it was only $400 installed....
