    Here are a couple threads that may help you.

    I would recommend contacting your local dealer for more information. They should be able to point you in the right direction. You can also take a look at: for more information.

    Well this is great ! I received a call just now from Mike at Extang customer service. It seems the guy from their design department took one of the covers to the local Chevy dealer to test fit it and it doesnt fit right ! So they have to change the design a little. He said theyre going to try narrowing the front and rear rails to start. Im calling Summit to get the pick up ticket so I can send it back. Maybe I'll wait a couple of weeks to call them back to see if theyve made any changes. OR maybe I'll just buy a different brand of cover. At least I know it wasnt me !

    I have the BakFlip.....not as watertight as my Fold-a-cover was but it was EASY to install.

    Well I thought you guys would like to hear an update on this mess. I went to the local Chevy dealer because they have a couple of new trucks on the lot with the OEM soft tonneaus. I looked real close at how they work. I went back to the GMC dealer where I bought my truck to get a price on the soft tonneau not the one with the hard liner. $525 was the best they could do. I called Advantage. They are the company that makes the covers for GM. Not just for GM trucks in general. They make them for the GM corporation. So I ordered one from Summit today for $349. Should be here by the end of next week. Pays to shop and do your homework.
