It was recommended to have an upholstery shop make one but what kit did you use for the rails etc...

Believe it or not, you can still find the full kits online. CarID has one with snaps for less than $300.

Man they've gotten expensive. I bought one from Auto Zone back in the 90s for like $70.

That's right, there should be kits for your model. What year is your truck?

older styles are getting limited unless you have lots of money to have someone do it all for you

it's really up to be creative now adayz... What type of tonneau cover are you looking for ?

Soft one that snaps on all around or soft or firm material that maybe slides in channels,
Hard cover that's hinged or even slides in or even just a wood deck

Thanks

Looks great!

I think your bed would be narrower than mine and I also have a longbed so I would assume that Avalanche/Escalade cover wouldn't fit. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi! I'm having quite some troubles in finding a tonneau cover for the Luv. Anyone here who have used Extang? Would like to hear your feedback about it.
