  1. Zane & Josh, The Merva Brothers Founders, GM-Trucks.com November 23rd, 2018 Earlier this year we installed the Agri-Cover LORADO soft roll-up cover on GM-Trucks.com's 2011 GMC Sierra. Bed covers are one of the best utility to value products you can get for a pickup and we were impressed how useful Agri-Cover's premium soft cover solution was on our Sierra. When we took delivery of our brand new 2019 Silverado a few weeks ago, Agri-Cover couldn't wait to let us know they had a premium hard tri-fold cover, the LOMAX, that would be on sale soon and would fit our brand new bed size. Before we knew it, a brand new LOMAX arrived at our garage. After the LORADO earned its keep over the Summer of 2018, we're ready to subject the LOMAX to the Winter of 2019. We installed the Agri-Cover LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Bed Cover a few days ago and here's how it went and what we think. What is it? Access Cover LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Cover Model Number: B1020079 for 2019+ Chevrolet Silverado / GMC Sierra 1500 w/ 5’ 8” bed MSRP: $1,039 (as of November 2018) Manufacturer Website: https://www.agricover.com/lomax/ Main Features Low profile - sits ½ inch above bed rails Made of extruded lightweight aluminum Weather tight, water shedding design Designed to remove and reinstall easily Competitive Products WeatherTech AlloyCover B Bak BAKFLIP MX4 Extang Solid Fold 2.0 What We Like Extremely lightweight One of the thinnest hard tri-fold covers available Doesn’t interfere with power up/down tailgate Easily removed to haul larger items What We Don’t Like Fully folded, it still takes up ⅓ of the bed (fortunately, it can be removed if needed) The panels had a few sharp edges out of the box Installation diagrams didn’t match our 2019’s bed design Installation The LOMAX arrived via FedEx just a few days after being shipped. Even though it was a larger and moderately heavy shipment it showed up still securely packaged with no dents or damage to the outside box. Inside, all the components were in perfect shape. There were no missing parts and, surprisingly, very few parts. The LOMAX box contains the tri-fold panel assembly, two side mounting rails and eight under-bed clamps to keep everything secure. With two sets of hands we were able to quickly and easily clamp the side rails in place. Each rail required four clamps, which we reversed for a wider grip as detailed in the installation manual. Super simple and easy to do with limited tools. Our manual’s diagrams and instructions relating to the placement of the clamps were not perfect however. The 2019’s under-bed rail has various thicknesses. You want to make all attempts to clamp only on areas where the sheet-metal is two layers thick. The manual instructs you to clamp in the far corners where there is only one layer of steel at the rail top. We decided to move the outermost clamps slightly inward to make sure they were attached in an area of thicker sheet metal. Aligning and tightening the rail clamps was the most difficult part of the LOMAX install and at most took us 30 minutes. By "most difficult", we actually mean really darn easy. You only need a socket wrench. Once the side rails are securely clamped in place and adjusted to look even, we only had to lift the hard Tri-Fold assembly up onto the front rail. A little adjustment and the LOMAX snaps into place with two spring loaded locks. Two security straps attach at the first fold to prevent accidental flyaway. After opening up the hard cover and snapping the rear panel into place, we were done. No more than 35 minutes later with a lot of stopping for photography. The LOMAX is no doubt the easiest to install bed cover we’ve ever put on a truck. Initial Impressions Despite being an up-level LTZ trim, our 2019 Silverado looked unfinished and bare with a uncovered and painted factory bed. The LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold cover ended up being the finishing piece that really completed the super sleek and ultra modern look of our 2019 Silverado. Being a hard cover, the LOMAX has a thinner design then you could get from a roll up cover. It's also more expensive. That said, the easy installation and single unit cover piece also lends to an easy and quick removal process. Need to haul large items and leave your LOMAX at home? No problem, you can remove it and reinstall later by yourself. There’s also no interference with the power up and down tailgate, which surprised us. Looks good, works great, and doesn't mess up key vehicle features? Awesome! Day to day use of the LOMAX seems as if it will be similar to our LORADO roll up cover. The tri-fold design can be operated by one person and secures at the cab front of the bed, just like the LORADO. Unlike the LORADO, the LOMAX has weather stripping to seal the edges of the cover instead of hook and loop fasteners. We're curious to see how weather tight this actually is and how it compares to the LORADO and the Retrax Pro we've used in the past. Winter is just gearing up here in New Hampshire and we can’t wait to see how the LOMAX Hard Tri-Fold Bed Cover stands up. Snow, ice, and abuse are three things we can promise. We'll leave everything else up to chance. Check back in Spring 2019 for an update on both of our Agri-Cover bed covers.

  2. Selling my Fold-A-Cover G4 Elite off of my 2016 GMC Sierra. I believe they will fit 2014-2017 Sierras and Silverados. $500 cash obo. Text me if interested 678-491-8199. Located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama but willing to meet. Comes with two keys.
  3. I test drove a 2016 Silverado with the new Off Road Sport Package today, and I really like it. I asked at the dealership if there's a bed cover that is compatible with the sport bar, bu nobody had an answer - anyone know any different? It will help me decide whether or not to get the dealer-installed sport bar or not, since the bed cover is more important for me than the sport bar and associated lights. Thanks.
  4. Zane & Josh, The Merva Brothers Co-Founders, GM-Trucks.com May 2018 Spring has finally arrived here in New England. That means we’ve got a ton of home improvement projects ready to go and a few weekends fishing on the schedule as well. With those projects and a need to haul our 16-foot canoe in mind, we set out to find a solution that would cover our cargo and haul our larger items without damaging them or our Sierra. When we found two Access Cover products that fit and work together for a perfect solution we knew we had to check them out. Today we’re discussing and installing the Access Cover LORADO Roll-Up Cover. Pronounced "LOW RAH DO", kinda like SILVER-ADO, this low profile soft roll cover is an affordable solution for anyone in in the market for a bed cover. In the near future we’ll cover part two of our spring utility upgrade by sharing our install of an Access Cover ADARAC Utility Rack. Here's the two of them installed. Let’s install the LORADO Roll-Up Cover and see what we think. What is it? Access Cover LORADO Low Profile Roll-Up Cover Model Number 42289 for 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado / GMC Sierra 1500 w/ 6’ 6” bed MSRP: $490.45 (as of May 2018) Manufacturer Website: https://www.accesscover.com/lorado/ Installation Time: 1-hour Installation Difficulty: Easy with basic mechanical skills and a helping hand Main Features Automatic dual locking system Four sided sealing XT-DIAL Tension adjustment One person open and close with hook & loop seal Cover rolled up storage straps Low profile design that only sits 1-inch above the truck bed Competitive Products Truxedo Lo Pro Extang Revolution Tonno Pro Lo-Roll What We Like Slim design doesn’t spoil your truck’s style One person easy roll up and roll out Aluminum frame and clamps won’t rust or spot The price point What We Don’t Like Not as waterproof as we hoped along the side rails No option for premium cover fabric (think convertible car type fabric) Not as secure as a hard bed cover Taking The LORADO Out Of The Box The Lorado soft roll-up bed cover comes neatly packaged in a cardboard box. It’s shipped rolled up in the same manner as you would roll it up on your truck, so no creases or stress are put on the cover material during shipping. Included is all the hardware and rubber sealing that you’ll need to install the cover. All of the included parts, fasteners, and adhesive strips are of a high quality. A general instruction manual and a vehicle/model specific manual was included for our application. The hardware package for this install includes pretty much everything you'll need aside from tools. In just about 10 minutes we had unpacked our Lorado and it was ready to install. Installing The LORADO The documentation and installation manuals are concise and complete. This roll up cover fits multiple generations of Chevy's and GMC's but clamps to each in different ways. We started by laying out all of the included hardware and familiarizing ourselves with what we were about to do and how it applied to our 2011 GMT-900. Above is the entire hardware package laid out neatly. You can see the clamps, gaskets, bolt threading tool, and cover tensioners. The only thing not included that we ended up finding extremely useful was two small hand clamps. Having the hand clamps to to hold the rail perfectly in place while securing the cover to our Sierra's bed was invaluable and cheap. Even so, this entire process was completed easiest as a two person job because everything needs to be lined up within tight tolerances to look good. A special tool to snake the mounting hardware into place is included, which was a nice touch. After getting the rails square on the bed it was just a matter of clamping everything down. Special care is required to make sure you don't tweak the side rails out of plumb as you snug the included clamps. We had to tighten and loosen various clamps a few times to get everything to stay lined up and tight at the same time. After securing the side rails and making sure they were aligned property, it was time to add the rubber gaskets. Access Cover includes two lengths of rubber seal that you'll have to cut and affix into place. The larger gasket runs up front with two smaller sections of gasket in the rear. The rubber gaskets are affixed with 3M adhesive tape. Lastly, it was time to set the actual cover in place and use the tensioners to connect the cover to the side rails. The tensioners allow you to get the cover drum tight when closed. Ours only required a little bit of adjustment to get looking just right. We did find that after a few days it needed a minor tightening due to stretching. Since the Lorado seals using a hook-and-loop type fastener (aka velcro), closing and snapping the rear bar automatically secures the sides. That's a huge advantage over "button-snap" covers. In about an hour we were entirely done and ready to hit the road. The LORADO In Practical Day To Day Use Coming from a competitive and more expensive metal roll up cover we were initially skeptical of how beefy the Lorado would really be. Those fears were quickly erased when we started using it. We appreciated just how little room the Lorado takes up in our bed. It has a small footprint and lets us load up our bed to its full capacity. The Lorado is also easy to roll up from one side of the bed, which we didn't expect. Gaining access to the Lorado is straight forward. The pull cord release is located inside the bed and allows the fabric to slack and roll up. The tailgate must be lowered to open the cover, which means items inside are semi-secure as long as the tailgate is locked. We've yet to use our Lorado in a heavy rain storm to see how water tight it is. We did notice a small amount of water entered the bed through the side rails after we washed our Sierra with a hose. The cover has stayed tight during some wild temperature swings in the Northeast lately and has been a valuable tool during our recent excursions to the hardware store. We can't wait to haul home some drywall and other building supplies for our home projects soon. UP NEXT: We install the Access Cover ADARAC Aluminum Utility Rack Final Thoughts If you're looking for a lightweight bed cover that doesn't take up much space, won't cost a fortune, and you can install in your own garage, the Lorado is a fool proof option.

  6. I have a 2015 Sierra 1500 XLT with a spray-in bedliner. I've been researching bed covers and I believe I've narrowed it down to 2: the Peragon or Bakflip. Would appreciate anyone's thoughts or experiences with either of these covers. From my perspective it seems that the biggest pro with the Bakflip is that it doesn't leak as much as (not at all?) the Peragon, and the ability to cover the bed partially with the Bakflip, but the Peragon is either completely open or closed. Biggest pro with the Peragon is the company (customer service) and the fact that it is Aluminum, as well it doesn't block the back window when completely open. Also - is anyone aware of discount codes for either cover for members of this forum? Thanks in advance!
  7. Roll N Lock Truck Bedcover for 2014 or 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 or Chevy Silverado 1500. Like new condition with instruction manual and original receipt.
  8. I have the new BAKflip X2 still new in the box for sale. I will open it just to check contents and condition once I have a perspective buyer. Looking for 650 on it, would prefer local pickup. I also have a Bakflip HD, its not new but still in really good shape. All the rails, clamps and hoses are with it, just shows some wear on the top. I will get pics of both posted in the next few days, just wanted to get these on here to see if anyone was interested, I would prefer local pickup near Lexington KY or Elizabethtown but would drive to meet someone if they dont mind splitting the gas. I currently have the Fibermax on my truck, its been on for a year if anyone would rather have that than the above listed I will sell it and keep whichever one I have left. Fibermax would be 600. Pics to follow
  9. I had this cover installed on my 2014 dbl cab silverado. I traded my double cab for a crew cab. Now the cover wont work for the crew due to shorter bed. I need to sell this one so i can get another for my double cab. Asking 600 pick up. I will do 600 plus half of shipping if i need to ship. Im in alabama.
