I received my tonneau cover 1 day early which was great and in stalled it with ease it rained that night which was the first test for water which passed super. The next test was a ride the next day to another state which showed the improved gas milage which was much better. Storage is now much better and secure which was our most concern which is great, Thank you very much for the service and a great product Ed.
Install Time: 30-60 minutes

I have an 08 Tundra with deck rails. The install took me probably 4 - 5 hours, mostly due to the deck rail issues. Let me be clear here; the deck rail kit they send is poorly designed and will NOT allow your adjustable deck rail tie downs to be inserted into the rails or positioned freely unless you modify the bolts.
The front plate and drain on the tonneau side rails prevent you from being able to insert or remove the Tundra's adjustable tie downs so if you do/don't want these on the front rail insert/remove them before you install the tonneau rails. You really need 2 people to help lift the tonneau onto the truck to prevent damage to yourself, your vehicle, or the tonneau and to have somebody push down on the 2 bolts that hold the tonneau to the rails while you're underneath trying to catch threads. In the end, it looks great and it functions great. It was packaged very well except for lots of aluminum drill curls inside which could have scratched the crap out of everything but didn't and those sticky labels that are hard to get off and needed alcohol to de-gum.
