Engine bay got you down...Clean it up with a new cover.

Recommended Posts

Still working on an emblem plan to do in the middle circle over the throttle body but it looks a bit nicer in the engine bay for now. This is on my 2014 Silverado LTZ Z71 with a 5.3L

Here is the logo that I made to hold me over for now. 3.5" is the diameter of the emblem that was there before.

Any suggestions let me know.

But yours came with a cover. 14 silverados didn't come with one. The 6.2 covers from caddilac fit the 5.3 and the 6.2 in the 14 silverados. Just have to peel the badge.

 

If anyone wants the pn let me know but it will come with a caddy emblem.

I can hear that high pitched scream now... Very nice.

 

 

OP, great mod. Might as well add the p/n to the original. Looks right at home.

Part number added to original post.

 

If I could afford the supercharger right now I would be without covers too.

 

Keep in mind peeps that the part comes with a caddy emblem on it. Takes some removal and cleaning to get it off. I'll update later when I figure out a better solution. My brother and I are always looking.

That really does look great! Really dresses up the engine bay in a very "clean" way.

      This may have already been posted, but I couldn't find it...
       
      From 04-19 the bed size of the Chevy Silverados are very similar. Less than 1.3" in either direction for the 5'8" Crew Cab beds. We have purchased 14-18 covers that fit perfectly on 2019's. With a measurement, I could determine if I should purchase two of the 04-06 covers for our other 2019 trucks. 
       
      Here's the inside dimensions I have found online for the trucks:
      04-06: 68.13" x 63.19"
      07-13: 68" x 63.63"
      14-18: 69.33" x 62.33"
       
      All of the covers that I have purchased will overlap the side rails by about 2" and tailgate by a little more, which in theory would mean that they would fit various trucks just fine. The problem is that none of the sellers post the exact dimensions, nor will they give that information when asked.
       
      I suppose this is so that buyers will have to buy the more expensive covers for the newer year trucks. The same covers, made from the exact same materials vary in price from $299 to nearly $900 from vendor to vendor and year to year. I understand supply and demand, but this simply feels like price gouging. 
       
      Anyone have any experience with this? I have put the 14-18 covers on 2019 trucks, and they fit just fine. Just wondering if the plethora of 04-06 $299 covers are of similar size.
      Anyone know?

      Hi. I have a 2018 Sierra crew cab with the shortest box.   Looking to buy a tonneau cover.  I’m down to the two I like. 
       
      Access limited cover.   Or the OEM gm accessories soft Tri-Fold.  Or hard tri-fold. 
       
      Anybody have either?  Can you comment on how they seal, do they last, or any complaints/regrets?     I’m in Canada. Snow, ice, and crap winters.  Lol.  
       
      thanks gents!

      Hey everyone,
       
      First time poster, long time lurker. I have a 2016 Silverado 5.3 LTZ with the short bed (I assume 5' 8" bed) that came from the factory with optional tri-fold  tonneau cover. I thoroughly enjoy this driving this truck and have only had a minor electrical driver seat issue when it has rained excessively but that is not the point here. I recently purchased a low profile toolbox and, as such, I cannot use the cover that came with the truck any longer. My plan is to sell it and purchase a shorter cover that is made to cover a bed with a toolbox. I have read several threads on this site vendors that sell them but my issue is how to sell the current cover? Advertise locally on CraigsList or what? 
       
      Seeing as though it was $920 accessory from the factory, I don't plan on giving it away but I know I won't get anywhere near that price for it nor do I expect to. It has the normal wear from the elements and I do plan to clean it and take pictures when I get ready to sell. Currently stored in my workshop.  
       
      JUst throwing feelers out there to see what my options are at this point.

      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.
