What Size is My Truck Bed?

How to Measure a Truck Bed

Measure from the TOP of the bed, using only the inside measurements

Yes, Virginia, the old days are gone forever! You can’t mail a letter for 4 cents anymore. You can’t buy a loaf of bread for a quarter anymore. Gas hasn’t been 35 cents a gallon for decades. And there’s no longer any such thing as a pick-up truck with a “standard” length bed.

It’s true, here in the second decade of the 21st century pick-up trucks beds now come in a variety sizes and can longer be described as simply; long, short, or standard. So if you want to buy say, a drop in bed liner or a tonneau cover for your truck and the salesperson asks you what size bed you have, you need to know the actual length in feet and inches because they simply aren’t all the same anymore.

It used to be, back in the good old days, trucks only came with two optional bed sizes. On a full size truck a “short bed” was approximately 6-1/2 feet and a “long bed” was 8 feet. On compact trucks a “short bed” was typically 6 feet and 7 feet was a “long bed”. Ain’t so anymore!

Today, truck beds come in a wide variety of lengths from 5-1/2 feet, to 6, 6-1/2, 7, and 8 feet. And these will even vary between different manufacturers. For example, a 6-1/2 foot bed on a Ford might actually be 74 inches long (which is really only 6.2 feet) while Dodge’s 6-1/2 foot bed will be 78 inches.

As if that’s not confusing enough, with most truck models these days you can order any length bed with any size cab. If you doubt that you need only to go to Ford’s web site and look at their F-150s. You can check off Regular Cab, Super Cab, or Super Crew, and in the next box; 5.5, 6.5, or 8 foot bed, it’s all possible.

So let’s get back to why it’s important to know the exact length of your truck’s bed. Let’s say you’re in the market for a tonneau cover or a drop in bed liner for your truck. The first thing the salesperson is going to need to know is the length of your truck bed. Since we’ve now learned that old terms standard, short, and long bed no longer apply, how do we know what we’ve got? Easy, get out the tape and measure it.

You can find the length of your truck’s bed by measuring from the inside of the front bulkhead to the inside of the tailgate, at the top of the bed (not the floor) with the tailgate closed. You can give that measurement to the salesperson or you can save them the math problem by dividing that measurement by 12 which will give you the length in feet. (Remember though, that the advertized bed length from the manufacturer is sometimes rounded from the actual measurement.)

Combine this information with the year, make, model, and cab type of your truck and now the salesperson has all of the information he or she needs to provide you with the exact product that is right for your truck!

So yea, the good old days are gone forever and you can’t by a gallon of gas for 30 cents anymore but you now have a much wider variety of choices in pick-up trucks and pick-up truck accessories than you’ve ever had before, and that’s a good thing!

What’s the Difference in Cheap Tonneau Covers vs. More Expensive Tonneau Covers?

What’s the difference in a cheap tonneau cover vs. a more expensive tonneau cover?  We get asked that a lot.   The difference is usually just that…a lot.

Categorize them however you want.  “Cheap, moderate and expensive” or “Good, better and best”. However you classify a product related to its price, there are almost always differences in what you get for your hard earned money.

Just like buying a TV, refrigerator, truck or a house, you usually get what you pay for.   That doesn’t mean that cheap tonno covers aren’t good, but they usually lack features and more importantly, benefits found in more expensive tonneau covers.

The difference in cheap tonneau covers and the best tonneau covers

Want to know the difference in cheap tonneau covers and the best tonneau covers? We’ll tell you

You as the truck owner, need to decide what’s important to you.   If you don’t get in and out of your bed very often, and just want one to improve gas mileage, a cheap tonneau cover may do the trick.  Almost any tonneau cover improves gas mileage, regardless of how much you spend on it.

But if you do use your truck bed occasionally or even frequently to haul things, you’ll probably be using your cover a lot also.

Ask yourself these questions:

 

How often do I haul things in my truck bed?

  • If you use your truck bed frequently, you may benefit from “better” or “best” quality tonneau cover.   Usually, they are easier and/or faster to get in and out of.   The best covers can be rolled out of your way and secured in under 10 seconds. Plus it can be done with 1 hand.  This matters if you have your hands full.   If you are only wanting one to help improve your gas mileage and for no other reason, a cheap tonneau cover may do the trick.

Do I live in an area where rain and snow are frequent, or the winters are long?

  • If you have to load or unload your truck bed frequently in when the temperature is -4 degrees outside or it’s pouring down rain, are you willing to spend the time covering your bed by snapping 70-80 snaps?  These go all the way down both sides and around the back of the truck, may require using hands to snap them.  Same goes for some models that have 2 latches/locks.     If you have to reinstall the support bows with wind chills in the negative numbers, are you going to be happy about it?  Mid- to upper-end tonneau covers have no snaps, the bows roll up with the tarp and can be fully opened or closed in seconds, not minutes.

How long do I keep my trucks?

  • Most of your inexpensive tonneau covers have a 3-5 year warranty (at least the truck bed covers WE sell do. We can’t say that about the “other” guys).  If you keep your trucks for a long time, your better / best quality covers frequently have a lifetime guarantee.  Most of these models cover everything right down to the clamps.

Do I want a tonneau cover that’s as heavy duty as my truck?

  • Most of your mid- to upper-end tonneau covers are built with heavier duty frames, rails, cross bows, hardware and in many cases, a heavier tarp fabric. Some inexpensive tonneau covers use plastic for the corners and other insignificant parts.  It doesn’t mean that all cheap tonneau covers are flimsy.  But for a manufacturer to build a tonneau cover that can be priced inexpensively, they generally must use lighter duty components.   This is no different than an inexpensive TV, or a truck for that matter.  A Ford Ranger costs less than a Ford F150.  They are built to serve a different purpose.  Lighter duty suspension, shocks, etc.

 

The bottom line is we all want to save money.  Just make sure you are honest with yourself when you make your choice.  Ask yourself the questions above and answer them HONESTLY.   Just one answer you give yourself may tell you what you AREN’T willing to sacrifice when it comes to buying a tonneau cover.

Give us a call to help you choose what cover best fits YOUR needs.   Our team has sold AND INSTALLED tonneau covers for over 20 years in our retail stores.   We’ll give you our honest opinions on what will work, and more importantly, what won’t.

Are Tonneau Covers Waterproof?

Are Tonneau Covers Waterproof?

One question we are frequently asked is, “Are tonneau covers waterproof”?   The short (but honest) answer is “no”.   They are ALL highly water resistant, but water proof, no.  However, you can get them pretty close to being water tight with a little common sense (and the advantage of our knowledge from installing them for over 20 years in our retail stores).

All of the tonneau covers we sell have some sort of seal or feature (varies by manufacturer and model) on all 4 sides of the cover.  Some have multiple seals in these areas.

Your 2 biggest causes of getting water past your tonneau cover and into the truck bed are rain (duh) and car washes.  Here’s how it gets in and the solution to fixing it

  • Problem –

    • Rain gets in from area that isn’t covered by your tonneau cover, such as around the gap in the tailgate.  Rain normally isn’t an issue since it comes straight down from the sky.  In a thunderstorm with high winds, rain can be almost horizontal, forcing water in
  • Solutions to consider –

    • A tailgate seal covers both sides of the tailgate as well as the gap along the bottom.  These work great and are also very good at keeping dust out.  Driving down the highway and especially dusty roads dust gets in due to the turbulence behind the truck.  These seals install in about 10 minutes using very good, ultra-thin double sided tape.
    • On some trucks the front bulkhead (front of the bed) isn’t completely level with the sides of the bed.  Most trucks are built this way.  Keep in mind that water only needs an opening of about 1 millimeter to sneak in under your tonneau cover. Inspect this area closely before you install your cover to see if you need extra foam in any area
    • If you have a plastic bedliner (drop in bed liner), all of them go over the front rail of the bed.  If you look at the outer edge of front bed rail, you’ll see that the bedliner portion doesn’t quite cover the entire width of the front bed rail, leaving a void for water to get in. Since a tonneau cover will sit on the top of this front “lip” of your truck bed liner, there will be a void where the liner doesn’t meet the side rails.  This is a good place to add a seal.

 

  • Problem –

    • When washing your truck at a car wash (either drive through style wash or do it yourself version) water gets forced in.

 

  • Solutions to consider -

    • When washing it yourself at a high pressure “wand” style car wash, don’t point the wand right at the seal/edge of your tonneau cover.  Hold the wand over your head and shoot it downward so you don’t “force” water in.  At a drive through style, you have no control over the water being aimed right at the edge of your truck bed tonneau cover, and thus your seals.  With this style of wash, there is very little you can do other than make sure your cover is fully “attached”.  By this we mean all snaps are snapped down, cover is fully sealed against the Velcro on the rails, locks locked, etc.

 

When installing your tonneau cover, there is a way to determine where you may get water, but it helps to have a friend here.  After installing your tonno cover, on a sunny day park your truck in the sun and climb into the truck bed with the tonno covering up the bed.  Have your friend close the tailgate, sealing you in the dark.  Look for any area where you may see daylight peeking in.  Remember, water needs less than 1 millimeter to seep into your bed.  It helps to reposition the truck so each side and tailgate of the truck is facing the sun.

 

If keeping your bed dry is one of your biggest concerns, call our experts.  We’ve sold AND INSTALLED tonneau covers, as well as performed troubleshooting on them for over 20 years.  Give our experts a call today at 877-249-8789.

 

 

Securing Stuff in Your Truck Bed: Hard and Soft Tonneau Covers

Locking your truck and shutting all its windows before you go into the store, bank, or gas station is second nature. You would never leave your truck unattended and vulnerable whether your truck is parked in the Kansas City or out in the boondocks, right? Heck, you don’t even leave it unlocked when it’s in your driveway!

Keeping that first line of defense strong is important; locking truck doors and keeping your personal belongings out of sight are common sense actions that keep your stuff, well, your stuff.

These common sense strategies should extend to your truck bed. That’s why a tonneau cover (also known as a tonno cover) is a great, and an important, personal investment. A truck bed cover keeps your gear out of sight, and out of thieves’ minds.

While no tonneau cover is 100 percent secure, thieves are less likely to ravage your truck bed when there’s no visual temptation. Both hard and soft tonneau covers can keep your truck bed covered.

Soft tonneau covers are often made from incredibly strong, reinforced vinyl fabric. Almost all soft tonneau covers require you to lower the tailgate to open or unlatch the cover. Since most truck tailgates come equipped with factory locks (or an aftermarket lock can be added) by locking your tailgate, you are locking your gear under your tonneau cover. All soft tonneau covers offer “out of sight – out of mind” security.

While soft and hard tonneau covers keep your personal belongings hidden, hard tonneau covers are more secure. Many hard truck bed covers are made from aluminum, fiberglass or ABS (ultra tough plastic), and come with keyed locks built into the cover.

Hard tonneau covers also can work in conjunction with your truck’s tailgate lock (if your truck is an early model vehicle, you can add a tailgate lock). Hard truck bed covers usually have a latch, lever, or handle to turn to open the, all of which can be locked shut in addition to locking your tailgate on your truck.

Now, if someone wants to pick your truck’s door or tailgate lock, break a back window, or cut through your soft tonneau cover, they’re going to do it no matter what. It’s an unfortunate reality. The fact remains, though, that tonneau covers keep your items concealed and safe the majority of the time.

If you want expert advice without the hard sell, call the experts on hard and soft tonneau covers. Give the experts at The Tonneau Cover Store have sold AND installed tonneau covers for over 20 years. Call us now and we’ll help you determine which tonneau cover is right for you.

Why Buy a Tonneau Cover for Your Truck?

If you have been driving pick-up trucks for some time, you might have noticed that some of the other pick-ups look better, sharper. Some of your friends might also have told you that they are experience better mileage after installing a tonneau cover. Wait, now what is tonneau cover and why should your truck have one? A Tonneau cover in very simple terms is a hard or soft material that covers the bed area of your truck. But won’t a plastic sheet do the same job and why would people spend hundreds of dollars on installing tonneau covers? Read on and find out.

Tonneau Covers Keep the Cargo Dry and Dust Free

Whether you use the pick-up for ferrying cargo, work materials, or for personal use, you want the items or merchandise or product to stay protected from rain, dust, and wind. You would not want a strong wind to blow away the boxes or your purchases on the highway, right? That could spell disaster for other drivers as well. Weather seals are used to reject any water from entering the truck bed area. Tonneau covers will keep the cargo protected from all kinds of weather, not just water. Even if it’s raining cats and dogs, snowing, or you are caught up in a dust storm (have you been to Phoenix?); your tools, parts, food, and so forth will remain dry and secure.

No one wants their cereal and bread mixed with sand, do they?

Pimp Your Ride

We have already mentioned how some trucks just look better than others. Well, the next time you come across such a truck, observe carefully and you will see that the truck has a tonno installed. Depending on your choice, you could choose a soft or a hard cover. So now, not only are your items safe from the weather, your truck also reflects your personality and taste. There is another advantage to this. Trucks with tonneau covers receive a higher resale price than the trucks without. Just ask Kelly Blue Book.com or Edmunds.com and they will confirm this.

Fewer Trips to the Gas Station

Gas prices are at an all-time high and do not expect them to come down in the near future, certainly not with these current policies. Both soft tonneau covers or hard tonneau covers will help increase the mileage on your truck. When you drive your truck with an open bed, the wind shoots into the open bed area, providing more resistance to the truck’s forward motion. However, truck bed covers prevent the air from entering this open bay and hindering your truck’s forward progress. You will not all of a sudden begin driving a Prius or live by those types of gas mileage numbers, but let’s face it, you could not hang out with your friends if you were ever caught driving one of them anyway.

Secure and Remove in Just Minutes

You do not have to spend hours altogether just to secure the tonneau cover. No, you will not miss your team beating up on the Lakers or defeating the Yankees while you fiddle around trying to put this piece on your truck. Soft tonneau covers can be connected in a few minutes. Hard tonneau covers take a little longer, but 30 minutes is nothing compared to the benefits it offers such as durability, some are strong enough to stand on, and the fact that you can actually lock this bad boy down.

Where to Buy and Price Ranges

We pride ourselves on stocking some of the best tonneau covers that will serve any purpose. We know truck drivers and owners and can help you with your choice if you tell us how often you have to remove your tonno and why. We’ll show you models that a child can fit on … almost or models that would require two capable people to secure but will keep your tools or belongings out of sight, out of mind, and well-protected. Some of the best makes we stock are brand icons such as Truxedo, Undercover, Extang, and Access. The prices can range from $300 to $500 for soft covers. Hard covers extend from $600/$700 to $1,300 and could go higher depending on how custom you want it and other features. Just call up The Tonneau Cover Store and we’ll have the answers you have been seeking.

We can even explain to you how a Folding tonneau cover can benefit you and what it entails.

It is about time you get some bragging rights over your friend(s). After all, they may be a little sad their Lakers or Yankees lost.

What the Hell is a Tonneau Cover & How Did it Get That Goofy Name?

The crew at TheTonneauCoverStore.com has sold and installed truck accessories in the Kansas City area since 1991. We’ve sold thousands of tonneau covers for every kind of truck you can think of.

Tonneau truck bed covers are called a lot of names, such as tonno cover, tanno cover, roll up cover, truck bed cover, truck tarp, pickup cover and a whole lot more. Whatever you call it, www.TheTonneauCoverStore.com is the place for finding the perfect tonneau cover to fit your truck and your needs.

That Goofy Name

When the first cars were made back in the old days, they often had cabs open to the elements. Drivers and passengers would sit on what were essentially benches strapped to the body of the vehicle. While the cars might have had windscreens and doors, these early vehicles didn’t have roofs. This made the interior completely exposed.

Given that a lot of these cars were expensive and their owners didn’t want them ruined when they had to drive in the rain or snow, they quickly started making covers for the open passenger areas. These were known as “Tonneau” covers because…well, we’re not really sure.

The word is French (rhymes with “John-Know”) and comes from an older French word meaning “tunnel.” So maybe it was first used in France? Or a French tunnel? Or whoever invented it was French? Or…Who knows. The point is, today we call truck bed covers “tonneau covers”. Just accept it.

Why Install a Tonneau Cover?

Installing a tonneau cover on your truck gives you a lot more options than not having one. Most of the customers who buy their covers from www.TheTonneauCoverStore.com do so because they want one or more of the following:

• Protection: A truck bed is a convenient space to have, but it can also take a heck of a beating. Even if you never haul heavy materials around, a truck bed will always be open to the elements. Sun damage, rain, and debris can all damage your truck bed. With a tonneau cover, your bed will be shielded from the elements. Also, if you ever need to transport something when it’s raining, you’ll be very glad you’ve got a cover to keep everything dry.

• Security: An open truck bed can be an inviting place to throw your tools, equipment, luggage, and anything else you need to haul around. But what happens when you go out and have to leave the truck unattended? Anyone who wants to can simply come over and take what they want. Unless you have a tonneau cover. Tonneau covers offer truck owners the ability to turn their truck bed into a trunk that can lock and keep secure whenever you need to.

• Utility: Ever use your truck to haul a lot of scrap or help a buddy move? How about after? Ever take your truck over to your in-laws and feel the need to clean it up so it didn’t look like you just hauled a load of trash? A tonneau cover allows you to use your truck for all that stuff you use it for. It also gives you the option to cover the bed up whenever you need or want to. Some versions, like the Extang toolbox tonneau covers or the Access tool box tonneau covers, give you the ability to add a tonneau cover to your truck, even if you have a toolbox already installed. These versions come in custom lengths to fit any sized toolbox and truck bed.

• Aesthetics: A lot of people buy tonneau covers because they look cool. The covers give your truck a unique, streamlined look that many people find appealing. Soft covers are dominantly black in color, as are most hard plastic or hard folding covers. Ranch fiberglass offers painted tonneau covers to match your truck for show truck looks.

Truck Tonneau Covers

Two of Many Styles of Tonneau Covers


Tonneau Cover Options

When it comes to tonneaus, the crew at The Tonneau Cover Store has you….covered? (That sounded funnier when we thought of it.)

There are a lot of options available when choosing a truck bed cover that meets your needs. From materials to colors and design, you can go a lot of different ways with a truck bed cover.

• Soft Tonneau Covers: A soft tonneau cover is usually made from vinyl or another fabric material with a rubberized coating. These covers are versatile, durable, and are available with a lot of different options. They usually come as either snap-on or snap-less covers. Some, like Access, Extang and Truxedo covers, roll up for easy storage near the cab, while others can be easily removed when you need access to the truck bed. In general, soft tonneau covers are cheaper than harder covers. They are also usually easier to install.

• Hard Covers: A hard tonneau cover is a rigid cover that acts much like a hood or trunk. These are made of fiberglass, metal, or plastic and come with a wide range of options. Some are folding models with solid panels that fold and stack on themselves, while others are solid, 1-piece hinged designs that give a sleek appearance with no seams. These come in both lightweight ABS (think seriously tough plastic, strong enough to stand on) as well as painted fiberglass versions

• Soft/Hard Combination Covers: Some tonneau covers, like the Truxedo Deuce series, have a rigid frame with a vinyl or fabric cover. These covers are often segmented into two or three pieces, allowing you to raise one section while keeping the rest of the cover in place. You can also roll them up like a traditional tonneau cover to gain full access to the bed.

• Low-Profile Covers: Many hard and soft tonneau covers sit above your truck bed. Some people don’t like the added height back there, and look towards low-profile covers instead. These covers, such as the Flex Cover series from UnderCover or the Truxedo LoPro QT, are made to sit just barely above the truck bed level. Others install so they don’t add any height at all. These low-profile covers can be either hard or soft.

What About Gas Mileage?

There are a lot of places that will sell you a tonneau cover and tell you that you’ll save gas mileage with it on your truck. Studies have shown that with highway driving, you can save as much as 10% in gas mileage. We take these claims with a grain of salt. Do they save gas? You bet. Like we said, we’ve sold covers for over 20 years and we get our information from the best sources possible…our customers.

We’re no scientists, but we do watch TV. The Mythbusters once tested out all sorts of truck-bed covers and found that using a mesh gate instead of the standard tailgate actually increases gas mileage. Why? It has something to do with the gate allowing an air bubble to get trapped in the bed and provide a cushion that the other air around the truck bounces off of. When you remove the bubble by adding a tonneau cover, you may actually slightly decrease your truck’s gas mileage. The problem with this is that every truck is a different shape, which means that the aerodynamics for every truck are different. Plus, every driver has different driving habits (acceleration, feathering the throttle, etc.)

A lot of tonneau cover manufacturers got pretty upset with the Mythbusters. Since then they’ve conducted their own studies, and some of them have shown that some tonneau covers do actually make your truck slightly more efficient. SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) conducted their own study a few years ago and came to the same conclusion that tonneau covers DO help with gas mileage!

Our crew believes it’s hard to tell what effect a cover has on fuel efficiency without testing every single cover on every single truck. Plus, everyone’s driving styles are different. In our experience, more customers than not claim some small benefit in gas mileage on the highway after installing a tonneau, usually about 1-2 MPG. Depending on your factory mileage before installing a tonneau cover, this could save you hundreds of dollars per year.

In the end, if you want a tonneau cover you should get it because you think it’s best for your truck. The added fuel economy will just be an added bonus.

THE TONNEAU COVER STORE EXPERIENCE: Another nice roll up style cover. It’s the lowest profile of the Velcro styles (the Revolution doesn’t use Velcro). The way they get it so low is that the side rails have very little if any angle to them. It’s also a great cover if you have or want to add side rails as it doesn’t interfere with the stake pockets.

Spring Action Retractable Truck Bed Cover
Jack Rabbit Group
CHOOSE THIS COVER IF: You need a hard secure cover but also need an open bed sometimes to haul larger loads.
THE TONNEAU COVER STORE EXPERIENCE: This is our most popular hard roll up cover. We love the way it can be stopped every 12 inches or so. We have this one on one of our shop vehicles and if you have to haul something tall, you can open it just the amount needed and keep the rest of the bed covered. The vinyl covered aluminum looks good but if you spend a little more, get the full metal version because it looks awesome.

Access Tonneau Covers

All of the product information and TheTonneauCoverStore.com experience you need to choose the right Access Truck Bed Cover for you.

::::::::: For fitment, prices and purchase information click on any of the tonneau covers listed below :::::::::

Agri-Cover, the makers of Access brand tonneau covers are the original inventors of roll up style tonneau covers. Originally they manufactured a similar cover for dump trucks to keep rock and dirt from blowing out. In 1991, they introduced this style cover to the pickup truck world. Access roll-Up covers were an immediate success with pick up owners across the country and continues to be a one of the premium tonneau covers in that category. During that time the Access line has expanded to include additional roll up tonneau covers, each with its own distinguishing features. Choosing the right Access cover is a matter of carefully assessing your needs and budget. The following guide is designed to help you choose the right cover.

All Access bed covers are of the soft roll up design. Operation is simple. Open the tailgate, unlock the cover, roll it up to the front and secure it. The whole process takes about 30 seconds. Access covers fall into two primary categories, increased capacity bed covers and low profile bed covers. Increased capacity bed covers sit above the bed rail to provide maximum storage capacity while low profile covers mount flush, or near flush, with the bed rails for a dramatic and stylish finish. Neither type has a significant advantage in strength or ease of use and with the exception of slightly increased covered bed capacity of the increased capacity covers, choosing between the two types is really a matter of personal style.

(Please see our Tonneau Cover Buyers Guide for more information about the different types of bed covers and the advantages of soft roll up tonneau covers)

CHOOSE THIS COVER IF: You like the features of the top of the line Truxedo LoPro QT but are on a tighter budget, the Edge is a great choice.

THE TONNEAU COVER STORE EXPERIENCE:

The Edge was introduced in July of 2009. If you think in terms of good, better, best, this cover is the “better”. It has most of the features of the LoPro QT but doesn’t sit quite as low. We have had customers who haul 5 gallon gas cans and this cover gives them a little extra room over the LoPro to get the can underneath the cover.
