    Sorry for the late response. I have not installed the bed lights yet. It’s something I will probably have someone take care of for men.

    okay, I really want one of these... but the all important part of the truck bed, is 'riding in the bed'... can the front section fold (struts dis-connected) to rest 'upside down' on the rear sections? so wife and Kid can ride "in" the bed still?

    can anyone with a cover try this? fold it all the way over and see if it's 'secure' enough, maybe I'll need to add a strap or something, but if it can't fold "180*" over... I'll have to keep looking. My only fear would be how easy would it be to 'slide' off... sideways or something...

    I'm looking at the HD.

    That won’t work for you at 90 degree is install and removal. But you could install the cover remove one side or both sides easily, even leave the middle on and they can sit on that

    Yes you can do that. it's in the manual for them that you can. You just have to secure the side you flip over to the other side using ratchet straps. I love this cover.

    I am looking at the diamondback for my crewmax. I like the idea of the HD but I have doubts about the claims of the weight it will support. Yes I am sure they built it strong enough to hold the weight but are the latching bars and clamps to the bed rail strong enough to keep your cargo secure if have to make a quick maneuver or get into an accident?

    The strength of the bed would be my question, not the DB equipment. Quick maneuver I would have no doubts for, and if you're only using 1 inch straps (usually 3k lb rating) they would be just as likely to break as the bed side would be.


    If you're going to be hauling a quad (Tundras can't do 2 unless one is a kiddie quad) up there a lot I would recommend a sled deck with a cargo slide. The DB cover with quads is like towing 9k lb trailers with a 1/2 ton - if you're doing it the odd time than sure no problem, if you're do it almost daily there's better, safer equipment to be doing it with.
