    Just finished up the install and tweaking today. Have had it on for about a month, but just got to putting the front seal on today and tweaking the front locks.

    I think the next step is to try to seal up the tailgate a bit now, can't have the front be mostly dry and the back be a constant stream coming through.

    Cover isn't leaking, it's working perfect. I didn't have the seal on the bulkhead until today, and you could see a small gap on the drivers side at the front which I got rid of by tweaking the cover locks. There's also a couple small gaps in the bed itself between the bulkhead and the sides, along with the tailgate. I'll be buying a tailgate seal at some point, then I'll have to get some silicone seal for the last few gaps.

    So the locking pieces don’t get scuffed up on the bed rail if I’m not mistaken

    Extruded aluminum came in today. Now I just need to get the bases made to attach to the cover. I went with 1.5x3.0 inch 80/20 aluminum and the bars are 70" long.

    Made this today as a mock up for where the rails will sit. End goal is a roof top tent on 3 bars. I think the height should be good, just below the roof

    HD went on today :)
    On a side note - I helped my buddy install a BakFlip on his truck the other day and that thing felt flimsy as hell compared to the Diamondback.

    Saw another Diamondback on a Tacoma today. They were Surveyors using the Diamondback since 2006 and they really like Diamondback!!!!

    Thats a cool set up. My Dad was a surveyor for 30+ years and used a suburban, like the Toyota set up better.

    Oh ok I got ya now. Yeah I have the bolt lock for my hitch. It is awesome to be able to use my ignition key to unlock.

    Honestly never thought about it for the cover though. I didn't even know that was possible. To be honest I have a very large set of keys, between toys, work, and the fact I dont trust anyone lol. So 1 more for the cover is just that, 1 more to my ridiculous key chain. I actually carry 2 lol.

    I’m interested in a diamondback cover. I don’t have the bed rails, would it be better to get them to install it or is installing without them equally effective?

    Ask diamondback, they're very knowledgeable and will know for sure. All I can say is mine has the track and works great with it. I'm guessing u can with out it but I can't say for sure. Best bet ask DB, they'll tell u for sure.

    It’s an easy install, more positioning than anything. Without rails, it’s shorter clamps for the center piece. And the locking pins sit higher. It’s just a matter of slightly different hardware they’d send you. Same result.

    I would really like to get some towers for putting on roof boxes (preferably two) to go camping with. I want to put them on an HD but be able to take them off easily when I'm not camping so that I don't have giant empty, cab-height bars on. The Diamondback doesn't come off, the Thule's bars are too big for roof boxes and the Yakima won't install on a Diamondback at all. I'm not asking for a fricken Unicorn here. At least i didn't think I was.

    So I think I'm gonna go with a diamondback cover as well. Not really sure why I want to spend this kind of money on something that I don't absolutely need o_O But anyway, where are you guys picking these up? Looking for a deal.

    edit: my other option is a used ARE overland shell for the price of one of these new. Its not the same color as my rig though. Decisions :angrygirl:

    I put my DB HD on today. This is the Mack Daddy of tonneau covers. It is built like a tank. I should have done this when I purchased my truck instead of the Extang solid fold 2.0. That cover leaked and they are made cheap. I purchased my DB through their outlet store and saved $520. It apparently didn’t pass QI due to the bends at the beveled edges. I can’t tell. Looks perfect to me. But anyway I would highly recommend this cover. It is that good!0D362893-B912-460C-904F-8ED0479518CD.jpgAEC508DA-3986-40D9-9996-BFC91B4A3366.jpgD44F8221-1A09-40EF-8FB5-0DF8A916F47C.jpgACBC13BC-FBD2-4796-A6D8-A06E107BC6B0.jpg

    I ordered mine directly from DB last year. Not sure if they offered blemish discounts back then, but if they had and if I’d known about them, I would’ve gone that route just to save a few bucks more.

    All in all I’m very pleased with my DB SE. I’ve taken it on and off a few times and have had to readjust a few things as a result, but so far it’s held up well and has been waterproof, even when going through a high pressure wash (with a few minor drops around the tailgate area). The secured locks are a real plus, too.

    I had no idea that they had a discount center. But it looks great and it is with out a doubt the best you can get.

    I had no idea either until someone mentioned it on here. It’s not just their covers. There are accessories in the outlet store as well. Some are used and some are items that didn’t pass QI. Definitely some good deals.

    Here you go folks, their wonderful “Outlet Store”:
    https://diamondbackcovers.com/collections/diamondback-outlet

    I frequented the site for several weeks hoping for a Crewmax version, but only found several extended cab versions (6.5’ beds). Thankfully I was lucky enough to find a nice gentleman a few hours away selling a 2-yr old HD for just $1,500. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase, and I expect this thing to outlast me, much like the Tundra- ha!!
