Hey, guys. It's Sara with extremeterrain.com. And today, we have a review and install of the Low Profile Hard Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover, fitting your '05 to '15 Toyota Tacoma. This is perfect for the Tacoma owner who's looking for the security of a hardcover and wants a low-profile option that gives their truck a sleek appearance. This hard tri-fold style tonneau cover features a low-profile design and an easy to use fastening system. This tonneau features an aluminum construction with a black finish to add a sleek look to your truck. This tonneau provides cargo protection and security when it's closed, thanks to its locking system. And when it's open, secures with a buckle and strap to allow you to operate it in the open position.So as far as price goes, this tonneau comes in at around $825, putting it about middle-of-the-road, price wise, when compared to other options. And for your money, you are getting the security of a hardcover with its low-profile sleek appearance. I'm giving this install a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It does require some drilling to open up a hole for your drain tube, but all in all, can be done within 30 minutes. So with that said, let's check out our install.For this install, we used an impact gun, but a ratchet will work just fine, and you also need a 13-millimeter socket. You will also need a drill and I recommend a stepped drill bit.All right. So the first step in our install is we need to remove the cap off of the end of the utility rail that's on the Tacoma. To do this, all you do is press down and slide it out. Next up, we're gonna line up the brackets and slide them in. We're gonna be installing three of these, one at the front, one at the center, and one at the rear. They line up and slide right into your rail. Once you've installed three, replace the cap on the end of the utility rail.Now we can install the drain tube onto our rail. Press it in and twist it into place. Now we can install the rail on the truck. Once the rail is lined up to the bed of your truck, slide the clamp to where it's marked on the rail. Line up the other half of your clamp over top of the spacer, make sure both of those are still lined it up with the marked clamp on top of your rail. Grab a 13-millimeter socket and tighten it down. Line up your clamp and install the next one at the back the exact same way you install the center one. Grab your 13-millimeter socket and tighten it down. And repeat that for the backside as well.All right. At this point, we would install our drain tube. Now, if you don't have a large enough opening on your truck like ours, what you can do is find a small hole towards the front of your bed. Grab a stepped drill bit, and then drill it out to the size of your drain tube. We're not gonna be drilling into our truck today, but this is the point where you would install the drain tube through your bed.All right. Once you've installed this rail, you want to repeat the process for the other rail. And now we can install our tonneau. We're gonna grab a friend for the step just to help us line it up on each side individually. So grab your tonneau, line it up on each of your rails. Make sure the weatherstripping is lined up over top of the end of your bed. And now we can clamp it down. At this point, you can install your clamps, slide them in the openings underneath your cover, and then line them up with the sides of the rails. Once they're in position, you can spin the knob to tighten them down. Repeat that for the clamp this right in front of the one that we just installed. Same process, line it up with the edge of the rail. Repeat that on the other side.At this point, we can fold out our tonneau, unclip it from each side of the buckle. Start to fold it out and clamp it in place. Now to operate your tonneau with your tailgate down, go ahead and grab the cable to release each side. Because it locks in this position as well, you'll grab the cable again. And since it's folded all the way back up, attach the buckles to secure it. So at this point, you can unclip each of these buckles on each side. Start to fold out your tonneau. It will click into place at each section. And go ahead and shut your tailgate. And then that's gonna do it for the review and install of this tonneau cover. And remember for all things Tacoma, keep it at extremeterrain.com.
