Hey, guys. It's Joe from AmericanTrucks and in this video we're going over the Tonno Pro TonnoFold Tonneau Cover, fitting all '02 to '18 RAM 1500s without the RamBox. Now, this is gonna be a great option for any RAM owner that's in the market for eight budget-minded tri-fold vinyl tonneau cover that is gonna be simple and easy to use. So what do we have going on here? First things first, let's talk build quality and this is tear-resistant, very durable, double-sided vinyl in the black textured finish, which matches perfectly with our truck here. The frame is 6062 aluminum, which is really lightweight and durable stuff and I think it all comes together to form a really nice low profile tri-fold vinyl title cover that looks right at home on the rear of this '14 RAM.Now, like I said, this is going to be a hinged tonneau cover. So what that means is you have three panels here, the last one is gonna be locked in place. While this is installed, the only way to get that space back in the bed of your truck is to completely remove this. Now, with that said, I would personally take this design. It's got speed, it's got ease of use. However, there are some roll-up options out there. Pricing for this is gonna drop in right around 300 bucks. Now, vinyl is always going to be very, very budget-friendly. I think this one does a good job at packing a lot of features for the money. It even includes some extras. I'm gonna show you what those are in just a second and it also includes a limited lifetime warranty.Now, before we move on the install here, one thing I do wanna make a quick note on is if your truck has the RamBox option, you have some extra storage in the sides of the bed, this is not going to work for you. However, there are some tonneau cover options out there that will. Install here is going to be really, really simple. Definitely a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Should take you at most 15 minutes. One thing I wanna mention is if you do have a plastic drop-in bedliner, you might have to do a little bit of trimming to that to make this fit with the clamp design on this. We're gonna show you exactly where this is going to clamp down in just a second. That could potentially bump up the time if you do need to make those cuts, but without any further ado, let me show you what tools you'll need and how it's done. There's only really one tool you'll need for this install and it is a knife, scissors, razor blade, something like that to trim up the weatherstripping.As I mentioned earlier that this tonneau cover, it's gonna come with a few extras. I figured now will be the perfect time to show those off before we hop into the install. First things first, you get this little stick-on light right here. You can see it's got some adhesive on the back, little light right there. This is where the batteries go in, three double A's for this. They don't come included in the kit, but I think this is a nice touch. You also get some vinyl cleaner in a spray bottle to keep your tonneau looking really nice. And last but not least, get some Tonno Pro branded gloves, which I think is pretty funny. So I'm gonna wear them throughout the install. With all that out of the way, we can move on to our first step where you're gonna need this guy right here. It's got the adhesive on the back, it's a little bit of foam. This is gonna be our bulkhead seal. We're gonna apply this up the glass and then trim it to size.So now we can go ahead and put our tonneau cover-up on the bed rails. You wanna make sure these clamps are on the bottom with this seal up here being the leading edge at the bulkhead so that way it unrolls correctly. So now, speaking about those clamps, all we're gonna do to secure this to the bed rails is flip that down to its unrolled position. That will allow it to slide over to the right. And then you just wanna make sure that tooth makes it underneath and then you can tighten down this thumbscrew. We can do the same thing for the other side. And with this tightened down, this tonneau cover is pretty much installed just in the rolled-up position. But while we're here, I just wanna show you guys how this unrolls and latches at the back. All that's going to involve is undoing the two buckles at the front. The one on the other side is already open and they just unclip like so. Now you can roll out the tonneau cover.So at the back here, you're gonna find a clamp that looks like this. It's gonna be in the stowed up position. That's how you wanna store this every time you roll your tonneau cover up so it doesn't pierce through this vinyl. But in the case of locking this down, all you're gonna do it just like the back, bring it down a little bit like so. This has some adjustment up toward the right and down toward the left if needed. But what you're gonna do is open it up by bringing that lever up like so then you could slide this over and to lock it in, you're just gonna pull down on it and that lobe is going to push it up to lock down the tonneau. To lock down the other side, it's gonna be the same thing, except this is going to be reversed. So we're gonna push it away from us and bring the lever down. Spin that around, slide it over, and push that lever down to install.All that's left for us to do is shut the tailgate and get rid of these gloves. That's gonna do it for my review and install of the Tonno Pro TonnoFold Tonneau Cover, fitting all '02 to '18 RAM 1500s without the RamBox. As always, guys, thank you for watching. Keep it right here to AmericanTrucks for all things RAM.
