To obtain an installation sheet, please contact Extang Customer Service. They will need to know the style of Tonneau that you have, as well as your truck's year, make and model. The instructions can be faxed, emailed, or mailed out to you.
NO, for a retail customer the average installation usually takes 30 to 40 minutes (a professional installer can do it in 10 minutes. There is no drilling and no tools required except for the alan wrench which is supplied by Extang. Everything you need for a great looking tonno cover is included in your kit.
All of are tonnos are a Clamp-on, top mount design. Along each side of your truck bed, there are clamps, which grab the lip of your truck bed. Our clamps and rails are completely padded - there is no damage to your truck.
All Extang Tonno Covers are no damage systems. Most are attached to your truck bed with clamps. There are a very few however, that require what is called a wall plate. This wall plate uses a 3M adhesive tape. The wall plate attaches to the inside of the bed and then the top part of the clamp bolts onto the wall plate. If you have further questions contact Extang's Customer Service Department.
Yes, however there are a couple of additional steps needed to make our tonnos compatible with them. If you have an under-the-rail liner, you may need small rubber shims to help lift our tonno cover over your tailgate protector. If you have an over- the-rail bedliner, you will need to notch your bed liner so our clamps can go through the liner and wrap around the lip of your truck bed. Instructions for doing this are included with every kit.
YES, Extang tonno covers do not restrict the tailgate in any way.
Three bows for a short bed
Four bows for a long bed
Note: Extang Tonnos have always came with more bows than many other tonno companies, giving the Extang Tonno the best support for rain run-off and really good looks. But, there are customers who have asked to buy an additional bow for even a better, more macho-looking tonno-and you can too! Just call or email our customer service department and they will help you order what you need.
Yes, Black is standard, but we do offer a variety of other colors. Light Gray, Dark Gray, Navy, Off-White, Brown, Tan, Red, and Wine are available. These systems are a custom-order item, and take somewhat longer to produce. If you are thinking about a specific color, we suggest that you call our customer service department. Upon your request, we can send you our chart of custom color swatch samples.
Extang recommends that our tarps be cleaned with soap, water, and a medium bristle brush. If you wish to use a vinyl conditioner be sure to use our new TONNO TONIC. Many other vinyl conditioners (such as Armor All) contain chemicals that can actually damage your tarp. TONNO TONIC actually bonds molecularly to your Extang Tonno to give it that brand new look day after day. TONNO TONIC will not attract dust nor will it coat or seal your cover. TONNO TONIC actually allows your tonno to breathe naturally, while enhancing the appearance and providing with additional UV protection. Automatic car washes are usually safe, however you will want to avoid any sort of wax treatments.
