  1. I bought one used. It ended up being damaged and I called customer service. They offered to replace the one I had for their cost of manufacturing. Then offered to upgrade me to the pro, again for their cost, not retail, and I did it! And they shipped it to me, if I remember correctly for no cost.
  2. I have had Velcro type, roll n lock, and now a retrax pro. I love the retrax, and I should since it was the most expensive. I really thought the Roll N Lock was the best value for the money considering it security and construction. But the thing that will take me back to Retrax is the customer service. I had an issue with mine, bought used, and they offered to replace it at cost and shipped it to me for free. Not only that but they offered to take it from the lesser plastic one to the metal pro version, again me paying the difference. I am sure that I will continue to buy the retrax pro from now on. I keep lawn equipment or golf clubs in the bed of my truck. The security for me is worth what I pay. It’s all about the value you get from the money you spend. Good luck bud!
  3. Mine has been in since January. I have no lights out. But I totally get your feeling of wanting better quality or at least the 3 year warranty!
  4. I can’t for Rough Country, but I bought one from Amazon and it does everything I wanted. Brake, tail, reverse, and turn lights. I applied it with 3M VHB tape to ensure it’s adherence to the truck but I’ve been pleased. I also bought a Curt splitter. It plugs into the back of the round plug and splits off another 4 pin so you don’t waste any connections. It was the best set up I could find for the money. Hope this helps.

  5. If you’re getting a discount, get the pro! You’ll thank yourself. It’s nice material, more secure with dual locks and looks quite a bit better. I’ve had both and I’ll never own one that isn’t metal again.
  6. I don’t have an answer, but I’d like to see the set up! Post some pics please! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I can answer that. It’s a friction lock except at the tailgate. It is locked into place at the tailgate. Roll-n-lock does lock in 4 spots, not friction style. That’s a good point. But I want to make sure that when it’s close at the tailgate and locked, it not friction, it’s locked securely.
  8. I have a Retrax pro. I love it! I was expensive but I will buy another one when I get a new truck. I found mine on Craigslist and it was the plastic one. I could never get it to line up closed properly or roll smoothly. I sent a video to Retrax and they offered a warranty replacement for cost. Then they offered to upgrade me to pro for cost. I did it because the pro is aluminum, it locks on both sides instead of only one and it is a great cover. I have owned a roll-n-lock as well and it is a great too as well! I had that one from 03-16 and had zero issues. Based on the customer service alone the Retrax pro gets my vote. Either are excellent for a lockable trustworthy solution. Just know that with any of the canister style tops, you’re losing bed space.
  9. I tried that in my 16 CCSB LT and it still went into to 4. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Here’s a thread where a guy bought some lights and wires it up. Looks pretty good on the grill if you’re just after the light.

  11. Why not try and Plastidip them? If it goes horribly wrong, just peel it off? It’s like $10. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I didn’t splice wires with mine. I bought an adaptor that gave me an additional 4 pin plug. It’s the best solution I’ve seen. Curt Manufacturing 55384 Trailer... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009FJ38Q?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
  13. My head unit only adjusts brightness when the headlights are on. 2016 LT CC.
