After looking around at trucks and tonneau covers I decided on a roll-up. Reading reviews they all seem to have good and bad comments. I decided on the Truxedo Truxport Tonneau Bed Cover from RealTruck.com for $289. Ordered it 0n 5/31 and received it 6/6. Now that the tropical storm Colin has left Florida I decided to install the tonneau today. I watched all the installation videos and read most of the help threads on this forum. My main problem was the installation of the weather stripping. There is a separate instruction sheet for the Frontier. You must install the “cab seal” and “bulkhead seal” before installing the cover. My problem was trying to determine which is the cab seal and which is the bulkhead seal. The diagram shows part #1703331 is the cab seal. I did not have a seal with that number so I used the seal without a number on the cab. It looks correct. Once I made that decision the rest went fairly quick. I put the clamps in the areas on the side of the truck where you can feel with your fingers holes that are cut out. This will let the clamp ride further up on the rail. Doing it like that will allow less issues in rolling the bed extender back and forward. My only issue after I had everything on and secured, I went to roll it up and NO VELCO STRAPS. I forgot to put the small straps around the back outside the bulkhead and had to loosen everything up and get those straps back out of the bed
That was my only mistake on this easy install. It should take one person about an hour. It looks good and once it goes through a rain storm I’ll know how water proof it is.

That's a roll up? Looks very nice, I paid about 250 for my tri fold at rough country.com & I love it, but definitely not waterproof. Water resistant maybe, but I wouldn't trust to keep my suitcase dry in a real storm because it didn't come with seals like yours

Been riding with it on for two days, so far it does rattle when you drive. I think it is the metal bars that are going across the bed but I'm not sure. Also those two little Velcro strips have fallen back behind the bulk head again. As soon as it rains I will report on how weather resistant it is.

I was at the Dealership in Daytona today and my salesman who owns pickups and tonneaus noticed that my cover was rubbing against the bulkhead. I moved the cover away from the bulk head and no more noise!! Now it's nice and quiet.

Well we have had quite a few storms here in Jacksonville and so far (knock on wood) there is virtually no water in the bed! I am very happy with this cover so far.

I had the same issue with the two different weather stripping, thanks for your post, I noticed one had a part number.

Anyone wondering, it’s the thicker of the two that goes below the top lip of the bulkhead.
