So I finally got my tonneau back from the body shop.
It is the Undercover SE Smooth, yes the one that needs to be painted.
I am very happy with it. Install was a breeze. It actually was identical to the pictures in the manual, and no adjustments were needed. Measurements were exact too.
I know several of you have the SE and are happy with it, but I wanted to add my 2 cents on the Smooth as well. One has to factor in paint costs which run between 3-400 dollars depending on the shop.
The only irregularity was the main brackets on the cab side were actually shaped different than the instructions showed. No big deal as everything still fit fine. The locking mechanism works great.
One downside is that you can only use the rail tie downs cab side of the piston bracket. Towards the rear side rails they hit the piston and it won't close. That was the only real downside as most people suggested the tie downs will work after install (technically they do I guess, just not over the entire rail system).
I would really recommend this cover. To me having a paint match was important so it was worth the extra money. Post install pics...
The open pictures are obviously when I got it home, dirty because of the initial drive. Once it was cleaned up it looked great. The jumper cables were just thrown in there to test the rail tie downs.
