32 The Shop November 2015 ReSTyling/AfTeRmARkeT AcceSSoRieS UnderCover offers a variety of covers, available in textured ABS black, painted to match, or hard folding. Our covers span almost all makes and models, covering the majority of trucks years 2002 and up. Our Classic, SE, and Elite tonneau covers come standard with a black textured finish. This finish allows these covers to withstand heavy-duty load bearing tolerance, endure extreme seasonal weather conditions, and provide maximum security and protection for anything stored in the bed of the truck. These covers also have built-in lighting and other utilitarian features. Our Flex is also designed for heavy-duty workloads. The Flex offers three riding posi- tion; one of those riding positions giving the owner full access to their bed without having to remove the cover. All one-piece UnderCovers are made from lightweight composite ABS materials, and engineered with our patented X-effect, giving them unparalleled strength. Our folding covers are made of high-density FRP material, which is stronger, lighter, and more dent-resistant than aluminum. While our "light-duty" covers are still being made from strong and durable ABS, they are painted to match the factory color of the truck. Our LUX and Elite LX are styled, low profile, lightweight, and easy to remove, but since they have a flawless painted finish we do not recommend using them for "heavy-duty" purposes. All one-piece covers come standard with built-in LED lights, secure locking features, and an easy-down pull strap and gas struts that make our covers easy to operate. Our newer model Elite covers have a brighter removable LED light and a built-in lanyard for cargo retrieval. All UnderCovers require no-drill instal- lation and are light enough for one person to manipulate. Bestop offers three soft t o n n e a u s : E Z F o l d , EZRoll and ZipRail. Each is available for mid-size and full-size pickups all the way back to the late 1980s. EZFold has a three- panel folding design with integrated mounting system; EZRoll uses a hook-and-loop closure system with integrated crossbows and two-corner latch system at the tail- gate; ZipRail is a seal-n-peel-style tonneau with integrated crossbows and Bestop's original Belt-Rail attach- ment system. All Bestop tonneaus perform well in a variety of uses, including medium-duty farm/ranch/commer- cial, as well as regular light-duty use. Supertop for Truck is a cap designed for light-duty use, such as camping or outdoor activities. It is a fabric soft top for pickup truck beds that can be folded back to the cab for full access to the bed, and then redeployed to cover the whole bed. It's a convertible top for truck beds. It has a folding hardware frame with durable fabric deck and includes removable side window panels, and removable rear curtain. EZFold Tonneau features very fast, very easy installation in less than five minutes; completely removes even faster. EZRoll Tonneau has quick- release latches at either corner for convenience, rolls to the front of the bed for full access; ZipRail Ton- neau has integrated crossbows and Belt-Rail attachment system for a complete seal along the bed rails, and allows full access to the bed. Additionally, no tools are needed to install any Bestop soft tonneau cover; Supertop for Truck mounts with adjustable clamps, which attach to the bed rails. TRUCk STyLIng vs. Retrax offers many different series of retractable covers constructed of different types of material. All of these are available for almost all domestic trucks and most international models. These include: RetraxOnE, PowertraxOnE, RetraxOnE MX, PowertraxOnE MX, RetraxPRO, PowertraxPRO, RetraxPRO MX, and Pow- ertraxPRO MX. All Retrax covers are made to endure the utmost abuse. However, for the ultimate in security, dura- bility and strength, the RetraxPRO MX is the cover to choose. The "OnE" series is constructed of polycar- bonate with aluminum I-beams that run through it, whereas the "PRO" series is constructed of heavy-duty aluminum extrusions. All Retrax covers feature sealed ball bearings, a pat- ented flush front cover for a streamlined appearance, the ability to be key-locked in any position and easy one-handed operation of the cover. Only a Philips screwdriver and a 9/16-inch wrench is needed to install a Retrax cover.
