Review & Install Video
Hey, what's going on guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com, and today I'm bringing you a detailed review of the TruXmart Quattro Tonneau Cover fitting all 2015 and newer F-150s with a five-and-a-half foot bed. If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're looking for an extremely easy and convenient way to protect all the cargo in the bed of your truck while also getting accessibility to all aspects of your bed, you might be interested in the TruXmart Quattro Tonneau Cover.
For you guys unfamiliar with what a tonneau cover is and what it does, it's basically a large tarp of some sort that you put over the bed of your truck to make sure you're keeping out all of the outside elements. All of the dirt and soil, rain, snow, sleet, and hail from all of the cargo that you may be hauling in the bed of your truck. It'll also open up in some way to give you accessibility to that cargo very conveniently and very easily.
This particular tonneau cover I have here today is a quattro-fold tonneau cover. Basically what that means is there are four points at which this cover will fold over. Some tonneau covers roll up. Some of them fold up. Some of them have a tri-fold. This one gives you a little more accessibility with four different areas of folding to give you accessibility to the entire truck's bed very easily.
Opening up the tonneau cover from TruXmart with the quattro-fold is extremely simple. The first fold, all you're going to have to do is unlatch a latch on each side of the tailgate, allowing you to fold it over one time. For the second, third and fourth, all you'll have to do is fold the cable directly in the middle, releasing a latch on each side of the tonneau cover. From there, when you get back to the windshield, there will be a strut on each side, allowing you to prop it up against the windshield and tie it down.
The quattro-fold tonneau cover is a 24-ounce UV-protected vinyl top that'll already come preassembled with an aluminum black powder coated subframe, so it's ready to go right on your truck out of the box.
At this point, I do want to point out that if you're not really interested in the quattro-fold version of the tonneau cover, there are other options on the site from TruXmart. There's also a tri-fold cover, obviously three folds. There's a smart fold cover and a smart roll cover. The smart systems basically utilize, instead of the latching system on your first roll, it'll utilize that cabling system like we have here. If you're interested in those or the quattro cover, it's all available on americanmuscle.com as well.
Speaking of the other options, for the price range of some of those options, you can expect to be spending anywhere from $200 to about $500. This particular quattro-fold option is about $370, which is definitely to be expected when you're getting that extra quattro-fold as opposed to some of the tri-fold options, but it'll really come down to ultimately what you need for accessibility and what you expect out of a tonneau cover.
The installation, like I mentioned before, is going to be extremely straightforward and as I mentioned, does include everything you need to get the job done. The vinyl comes already preassembled on the aluminum subframe. You're also going to get brackets, clamps, and bolts, everything you need to get this done.
Included in the kit is also an extra gift, which will be a bed light, something that you can mount in the bed of your truck just to get some added visibility at night or really wherever you need it.
The first thing you want to do is clean up the end of the bed closest to the windshield before applying the bed seals. Once you have it cleaned up, you can cut the bed seals to length, place it on the end of the bed closest to that windshield, and place the tonneau cover as it's folded up onto the bed, placing the brackets onto the edges of the tonneau cover.
Next, what you're going to do is use the bed rail supplied in the kit to hold up the tonneau cover. You're going to be installing those on the sides of the bed using the clamps provided to hold it in place while you level it and get the brackets in place. You'll put one bracket on each end of the bed rail and one directly in the middle, repeating the process for the other side of the bed. Once you get the bed rails in place and all installed correctly, you can unfold the tonneau cover completely back to the tailgate and latch everything down. You want to test out each of the folds, folding all the way back to the windshield and prop up the struts provided as well to make sure you have it clamped back to the windshield.
It's not a difficult install after all. I would definitely say you could get this done in about an hour's time in your driveway at home. I would definitely give this a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.
