Simple installation for anyone.
Hey, guys. It's Sara with americantrucks.com. And today, we have a review and install of the Extang Tuff Tonno Roll-Up Tonneau Cover, fitting your '19 and newer Ram 1500s without the Ram box. This will not fit classic models or models with the multifunction tailgate. This is perfect for the Ram owner looking for a soft cover with one of the smallest footprints when rolled up, leaving plenty of room to haul larger cargo. This tonneau features peel and seal rails with additional weather stripping for all-weather protection. This tonneau features a tight-fitting vinyl top with top tightening rotating rear rail and spring-lock bows. So, one downside with this softcover as with any softcovers is that it's not gonna protect as well from theft as a hardcover would. It's not gonna pass a knife test and this one, in particular, can be hard to seat on the rails. However, if you're looking for an easy and budget-friendly way to cover your bed, this is an excellent choice. So, as far as price goes, this one comes in at around $300, making it one of the most budget-friendly options for tonneaus for your Ram. I'm giving this install a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It can be done in around 30 minutes but may take a little bit longer to seat the vinyl to the rails for the first time. It features direct bolt up install. And with that said, let's jump right into our install.For this install, you will need the included Allen key or a 3/16" Allen socket and a ratchet. All right. So the first step in our install is we have the piece that goes over the header of your bed. We're gonna install the cover onto this piece. So, these corners come pre-installed and we're gonna remove one so that we can slide the cover piece on. Now, the cover is gonna slide in this channel here. Grabbing your cover and be sure that you're using the proper direction, find the plastic channel on the back, line the cover-up, and slide it into the channel. Now, we can reinstall the cap. All right. So either on the ground or on top of your truck, you can install the rest of the rail system. At this point, you can install the caps that go into the end of your rails. And install the bar that goes over the tailgate. Line up the channels and slide in the bar. Now, we can clamp our rails to the bed. Grabbing the longer clamps, these ones are gonna go closest to the cab and the clamping position is marked on the rail. So, slide these two tabs onto your rail and then slide the second bracket piece with a rubber side contacting your bed. This one also is a little larger than the other two. Line these up and then thread your Allen bolt through both of them.Now, using either the included Allen key or a 3/16" Allen socket tighten this down. Repeat that process for the other two clamping positions. Repeat that process on the other side starting with the long clamp closest to the cab. Grab the support bar marked cab. They should all be different lengths. Line up the tab into your bracket and press it in, and then line up the corresponding clamp on the other side. And make sure they both go in between the tabs. Grab the bar marked center and line it up in the same way. And finally, the bar marked tail, depress it and make sure it goes in between each tab. Now, we can roll out the canvas, make sure it's aligned on each of the rails. There should be a groove along each rail that you're shooting for. Now, once the cover is clipped into all of these channels, you should be good. This is pretty difficult so you may want to let it sit in the sun or give it some time to stretch out before it fits perfectly. All right. So that's gonna do it for the review and install this tonneau cover. Remember, for all things Ram, keep it at americantrucks.com.
