Hey, guys. It's Joe from AmericanTrucks and today, we're gonna be taking a closer look at the Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Tonneau Cover, fitting all '19 and newer Ram 1500s. Now, this is gonna be a great option for you if you're looking for a high-quality tonneau cover that is not only gonna keep your stuff safe from the elements but other people as well, providing a little bit more security to the rear of your truck. And at the same time, it's gonna be quick and easy to use.So, what do we have going on here with the Solid Fold 2.0? Well, first things first. Let's talk a little bit about build quality. As you can see right here, this thing sits about an inch above the actual top of the bed itself and that is not only going to keep the looks of the truck as this thing, relatively speaking, pretty low profile, but it's also going to provide you a little bit more security as this is going to use Extang's EnduraShield panels. It also has a nice aluminum frame. It's finished in that matte black which is not only going to match with those factory plastics, but fit in perfectly with any sort of blacked out look you might be going for.The Solid Fold 2.0 is also really quick and easy to roll up. We have some spring-loaded clamps at the back here. And up by the bulkhead, we have two straps that buckle it down in place to make sure it's not flying around while you're driving. And that is pretty much it. You can accomplish that whole task in about 30 seconds, making this really, really quick and easy to use. So if speed is a factor to you, you wanna get to the stuff in your bed quickly, this is definitely a great option.Now, one thing to note is that last panel is pretty much hard locked down to the bed of your truck. So, if you plan on carrying anything big, that panel is gonna have to stay where it's at. In order to get full access to your bed, you will have to remove this thing, but that is a small price to pay for the relative speed of this tonneau cover.Pricing for the Solid Fold 2.0? Let's talk about that a little bit, right around 875 bucks. That's a pretty fair price for a solid fold like this one, exactly where I'd expect it to land. However, for something that's made right here in the U.S.A., it's a good return on your investment. Extang is a great name in tonneau covers and this should definitely last the life of your truck.Before I show you how to get this thing installed, one thing I do want to make a quick note on, we're going to be working with the 5-foot-7-inch bed today. However, there's a 6-foot-4-inch option available as well. The install is gonna be relatively the same, just a little bit longer on the panel to accommodate for that longer bed length.Now, with that said, this thing is really, really easy to install. It's good to go right out of the box. In fact, this thing is completely built, straps down with no tools whatsoever, and you can get it done in about 15 minutes. For that, I'm gonna give it a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. So, without any further ado, let me show you how it's done.So, right out of the box, this tonneau cover is gonna come right like this pretty much. There is going to be a little bit of styrofoam for you to remove. We went ahead and skipped the step of showing you guys how to how to get this up on here. It is a little bit heavy. I'll recommend having a buddy around to help you lift this thing up here. Now, as you're doing so, there's two things you want to keep an eye out for. Obviously, this is gonna be more biased toward the bulkhead, so that way it can unroll toward the back. And you wanna make sure that these buckles are at the leading edge of the tonneau cover. Now, you wanna make sure this is aligned up as well. I would recommend giving it one rollout just to make sure it's aligned on the bed rails. Then you can roll it back up like this, and we can crawl underneath and tighten this thing to the bed.So, underneath this thing, you're gonna be met with a latch that looks a little bit like this. It's gonna be in this folded-up position. All you have to do really is grab the thing and it'll pull down right like so. And, in this position, you can better see the tooth that is basically going to be grabbing on to the side of our bed. Now, there is a lobe at the top, so you can, sort of, fold this back in and slide it left and right. We're gonna bring that out to the edge of the bed, push against it right like that, and then we can tighten down this thumbscrew to get this guy all the way seated up there. In this thumbscrew is a nyloc nut, so it's a little bit tough to turn. You might be here for a while. But once you do this once, it's pretty much going to be done for good.And we're gonna come over and do the same exact thing for the other side as well. Just gonna pull that down, spin it around, lock that top lobe in place, and then crank down on that thumbscrew.All right. So this thing is pretty much installed and just in the rolled up position as it sits right here. We're gonna roll it out and show you how the back locks down as well. First thing for us to do in order to that, we have to loosen up these buckles at the back, there's two of them. I already did the one over on the other side. And then this is just gonna fold out like you would expect.So, here you could see the latch that's gonna be out by the tailgate. It's in its folded-up position now. You wanna make sure it makes it back there every time you roll this up. Otherwise, you're gonna scratch the thing up a little bit. So just be mindful of that. And in order to lock this down, all you're gonna do is peel that out, make a 90-degree turn that's gonna lock that lobe in place. And this is just spring-loaded, so that tooth at the top right there can grab on to the bed rail. So that is all we are gonna do. Reset that. Fold that down. Reach in. Lock the lobe in place. Give a pull. That thing is pretty much set. You can wrap things up here by doing the same exact thing to the other side.Guys, that is gonna do it for me. It's also gonna do it for the Extang Solid Fold 2.0 Tonneau Cover, fitting all '19 and newer Ram 1500s. As always, guys, thank you so much for watching.
