  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. Zane & Josh Merva GM-Trucks.com March 12th - 16th, 2018 As attention starts to shift from the current generation of K2XX based Silverado and Sierra to the all new 2019 T1XX based trucks, it's all too easy to forget just how far we've come and how much General Motors has "perfected" these tools over their last generation. Case in point, the 2018 GMC Sierra Denali. It's the company's most luxurious pickup ever. (Well, at least for a few more months). When the opportunity to take this generation Sierra for one last spin presented itself we jumped at the chance. A week behind the wheel of a 2018 right before the 2019 models started to hit the ground sounded like a perfect refresher. Each day this week we'll share our time, photos, and thoughts about this range topping model. Being that it's a Denali, it has... well.. everything. From the high-powered 6.2L V8 to the rail-like magnetic ride control and the plush heated/ventilated seats, this Denali has all the goodies to compete with pure luxury sedans from the likes of BMW, Lexus, and Audi. Stay tuned all this week as we add our thoughts and a slew of images to this thread.

  23. GM-Trucks.com Reviews: Husky X-act Contour Floor Liners Written & photographed by: Zane & Josh Merva Product: X-act Contour Front and Back Floor Liners Manufacturer: Husky Liners What it is: Precisely cut floor liner that protects your truck from mud, water, and snow far better than the factory mats. What Husky says it does: “Protection with a flexible comfortable soft feel prevents stains & soiling of your carpeted areas. Increases your vehicle's resale value. Form-fit Edge™ patented design gives your floor liner a finished look while keeping damaging spills off your doorsill and carpet. Tough & Durable patented rubberized material is resistant to most chemicals and minimizes cargo shifting.” Cost: $99.95 each [front and rear sold separately] Tested On: 2014 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 2011 Sierra 1500 Extended Cab Introduction It’s inevitable, the dirtiest part of your truck’s interior is where you put your feet. Even if your truck came with carpeted floor mats or you splurged for factory rubber mats, they are never big enough and don’t provide enough protection. Do you really want to have to worry about getting your truck’s carpet dirty? Neither do we. So, we recently tried out a new set of exact fit Husky Floor Liners. The X-act Contour line is Husky's premium liner/floor mat replacement. Unlike floor mats, these liners are exactly cut to fit perfectly into your truck. Husky Liners manufactures the X-act Contour Floor Liner to offer the most protection possible for your truck’s footwell. They are custom fit and extend to cover a sizably larger area than stock mats. We test fit two complete sets of X-act Contour Floor Liners on both a brand new 2014 Silverado Crew Cab and our 2011 GMC Sierra Extended Cab. The stock rubber floor mats on a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado are rugged and durable but don’t cover as much carpeting as they should. New Hampshire winters bring lots and lots of snow, sand, and salt. Even with only 15,000 miles, the extra cost carpeted mats on our 2011 Project Sierra have gotten dirty quickly and are starting to look worn down. Unboxing Here’s how our X-act Contour liners arrived. Husky makes both front and rear floor liners. Each comes in their own box. Each generation of GM truck has their own custom set of liners so make sure to match up the right part number for your correct year, model, and cab size. The liners are packaged securely and are easy to quickly unbox. The cardboard box they came in reminded us of pizza boxes and kind of made us hungry. Now away from their packaging, this front and rear 2014 Crew Cab set is impressive. They have a high-quality look and feel. First impressions are that these liners are heavy duty, durable, and strong. Up close, we see the liners are made of a slightly smooth, non-stick like, rubber. It helps water, dirt, and snow to slide right off. The surface is slightly slick when wet as a result. Fitment in the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Installing these floor liners shouldn't require too much explanation. They fit perfectly into the new snap lock design, and cover a much larger area. No cutting or modification was required. A comparison shot in the 2014 Silverado shows just how much bigger the Husky liners are over the factory rubber mats.. The Husky Liners are nearly twice the size! Husky’s rear floor liners offer even more protection. The 2014 factory rubber mat, sitting on top, is small with no center protection. Fitment in the 2011 GMC Sierra We found the the fit in our 2011 wasn't quite as perfect as in the 2014 but we are still very happy with the result. The passenger side liner on our Sierra is large and built to hold a lot of stuff that may fall off your feet. Husky X-Act Contour Rear Liner protects your truck’s floor carpeting door to door, unlike the factory mats. Here’s our extended cab with the rear seat folded up. How well do they work? We found even if your feet are covered in snow,you don’t have to worry. The Husky Liners are large enough catch everything that fell off our boots. The channeled design holds and traps a lot of water, dirt, mud, and debris, even after it melts. We tried our hardest to knock off as much snow as wildly as we could but the Husky liners kept everything contained. We then tried to over-load our feet with slush and slop but the Husky’s caught it all, too. Conclusion If you never want to worry about tracking weather inside your truck again, the Husky X-Act Contour Liners are the answer. These high-quality floor liners offer the protection your truck deserves and are backed by a lifetime guarantee. We've tested these mats for the last month during the middle of winter in New Hampshire and they've done nothing but impress. Gone are the days of asking passengers to knock off their boots! Jumping into our truck has become a no worry situation, no matter how messy our feet have become. We would highly recommend Husky X-act fit liners.

  24. Zane & Josh, The Merva Brothers Co-Founders, GM-Trucks.com October 2018 Pickup utility racks have been an option for anyone looking to haul around longer objects for decades. They've gotten the job done when stuff like ladders, wood, and canoes needed moved from one place to another. With the options of bed sizes shrinking over the past few years, a stylish and functional utility rack can add, well , a lot of utility to your full size or midsize truck. Unfortunately, not many racks look as good as they function and take away from the aesthetics of our vehicle. So, when we found a new aluminum utility rack that looked as professional as our truck, we wanted to try it out. In an effort to find a stylish utility rack we're reviewing the Agri-Cover ADARAC Aluminum Series. What is it? Agri-Cover ADARAC Aluminum Series Model Number 4001238 For 2007-2013 Silverado/Sierra 1500 with 6' 6" bed MSRP: $491.30 / $578 MSRP (as of October 2018) Manufacturer Website: https://www.agricover.com/truck-bed-racks/ Installation Time: 1-hour Installation Difficulty: Easy with basic mechanical skills and a helping hand Main Features Rust resistant aluminum construction No drill installation Compact and narrow upright designs Four load dividers included Compatable with Access-Cover bed covers What We Like Modern and stylish brushed aluminum design Thick stamped upright supports are super staunch Modular attachment points and accessories Uprights can be removed or installed with one person 500-lb capacity What We Don’t Like Stamped parts have sharp edges out of the box Can't re-position uprights without tools Rack as a whole can restrict what you put in the bed unless removed Tie-down holes are only barely bigger than a standard hook ADARAC Aluminum Series Unboxing The ADARAC came securely shipped in a long and moderately heavy box. One person can move the packaging around but two would be easier. We started out by unpacking our rack, laying out all of the parts and reading the manual. We found hardware packaging was excellent with no missing parts. The manual was clear and easy to understand. Nothing was scratched or damaged. The stamped aluminum uprights came covered in a protective sheeting/fabric and looking as if they were straight out of the forming machine. We almost cut ourselves on the uprights because no clean up work had been done to remove burrs or sharp edges. A smooth edge would have been a lot better and easier to handle. Once everything was organized and we had familiarized ourselves with the installation manual, we started to get to work. ADARAC Aluminum Series Installation We installed this rack at the same time as our Access-Cover Lorado Roll Up Cover. If you're doing something similar, don't make the same mistake we did and try to install the rack before the cover. It won't work, as the ADARAC blocks the bed-stake holes when installed. The same stake holes you need access to for installing the Lorado, so install your bed cover first. Speaking of...check our our full review of the Access-Cover Lorado here After getting ahead of ourselves, we detoured and installed our cover before coming back to the ADARAC. The first step was to lay down the side rails and secure them to the stake pockets on the bed using compression style fittings. The attachment method is slick, requiring no drilling or cutting. It's also fully reversible and doesn't damage your bed. Best of all, the rails are never going to move. The first step is to drop the compression plates into the stake holds and tighten down the rails with two clamps/bolts per rail. Then we measured the distance between the installed rails on the bed and set the uprights at the same distance on the floor. We used some old shop towels to prevent scratching the pretty aluminum. Next, we attached the crossbars at the measured width making sure to center everything up. We then tightened the assembled front and back racks on the ground before lifting them up to the truck bed. A few bolts and adjustments later... our racks are on the truck. The best part about aluminum racks is that the front and rear sections are light enough for one person to install or remove them without help. The rear upright mounting bolts are in a tight space when installed with a bed cover and we couldn't use a socket wrench to tighten them down. And before we knew it, our Sierra had a new utility rack and bed cover. Total installation time took right around one hour and was easy enough to do with one person but would be quicker with two. ADARAC Aluminum Series Final Thoughts An entire summer has gone by since we first installed our ADARAC Aluminum Series Utility Rack and we've been extremely glad we've had it as a tool on our GMC. We've used the ADARAC to help build a new bathroom, take our canoe to the local lake for a relaxing afternoon, and moved our ladder around to help with projects at home and work. The ADARAC has conquered every task we've thrown at it. It's never bent, felt flimsy, or failed to hold our cargo firmly in place. Basically... exactly what you want from a utility rack. The brushed aluminum finish and sleek stamped uprights also look good too. If the $500 price tag is too much, Agri-Cover offers the standard version of the ADARAC which is constructed with steel instead but uses the same basic design. Or, if you need a little wider load, the ADARAC Aluminum Pro Series is designed for larger objects and capacities. If you're in the market for a good looking, well functioning and indestructible utility rack for your truck, we recommend you look at the Agri-Cover ADARAC Utility Rack.

    Pickup utility racks have been an option for anyone looking to haul around longer objects for decades. They've gotten the job done when stuff like ladders, wood, and canoes needed moved from one place to another. With the options of bed sizes shrinking over the past few years, a stylish and functional utility rack can add, well , a lot of utility to your full size or midsize truck.
