    Diamondback SE vs HD

    In black

    After tax...
    $424.00 difference between the models.

    Differences: (SE vs HD)
    Carry 400lbs vs 1600lbs
    Tie downs: 4 vs 12

    Would the gun theory apply here?

    I had the same question when I got mine. After about 5 minutes I thought what’s another $400 when I’m spending that much? Go big or go home right. I went HD and don’t regret it for a minute. Happy to have the added security and capability.

    Two weeks to get CC reimbursement for returned defective tonneau cover. SMFH! (If looking to buy a tonneau cover message me so you don’t buy from this arrogant clown)

    Ok... With that nightmare now behind me...

    Diamondback HD in black being ordered in a.m. directly from them.

    (Posted in wrong thread <—dumbass)

    The DB HD cover I ordered was supposed to be FINISHED and ready to ship on 4/13.

    Received email today that it ARRIVES tomorrow. 4/13

    If a company cannot make a product for a specific shipping date THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT!

    Nice!

    Did you have to specify those or are they standard now? Also, is it feasible to have normal freight delivery and then open the package on the truck to unpack piece by piece? I see on their site that it weighs 250# and the driver will not help get it off his truck.

    That looks VERY nice! If I were ever to get the Diamondback, I'd do exactly what you did and get the HD. Go big or go home.

    If that box weighed 250# then pigs can fly.

    Driver dolly’d it into driveway. I picked up one side and dragged it 20’ into garage.

    A good $50 Home Depot handcart and you could roll it down the street.

    Sorry. Yes hinges are standard now in black.

    Yeah I couldn't figure out how in the hell it weighed that much when it said total weight was 105#...Glad the hinges are black, plan to order mine in the next week

    Hmmmmm yes yes and yes. The hardware/hinges have some finish issues but DB contacted me regarding it and I’m certain it will be fixed.

    Think Fort Knox!
