Sure I will take a pic tomorrow in the daytime for you. The two discs are in the mounting hardware bag on a piece of white backing marked "mylar paint protection" would be very easy to misplace them amongst the instructions.

My locks have been freezing up these past few days. Anyone have any ideas on how to prevent it? I sprayed some fluid film in the locks hoping to prevent it but it didn't work.

On a regular basis, I open the covers on the locks and drive around with them like that. I also leave the covers open on a sunny day to allow the moisture inside the locks to evaporate. If there's no moisture inside, they can't freeze, right?

Holy crap - I just got a quote from a local dealer on an Undercover for $830 plus $70 to install. They don't even have one on display, so I can't even check it out first. I'd be going on blind faith that I will like it.

Can't see how that can be price can be justified....

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I have a couple questions...

I am buying a used Undercover, and I have to drive a couple hours to pick it up. What tools will I need to install thins in the guys driveway?

Also, I have a 2012... Am I correct in assuming all covers 2005-2012 will fit?

Thanks

Standard socket wrench set will work to install it. It mounts to the cargo rails inside the bed. Not sure if it will fit your Tacoma or not. Check the Undercover website and see if the model numbers are the same for the 2011 and 2012 Tacoma.

You will need a 10mm socket/ratchet or a wrench for the rear 4 bolts near the tailgate.

You will also need a 1/2" socket or wrench.

The manual states a 3/8" is needed but your truck is metric and the bolts in the back are reused factory bolts which are 10mm.

A tape measure is helpful as well.

All you need to bolt up is the front hinge brackets and then the top will be on. At least then you can leave the transaction with the stranger and adjust it to your liking when you get home.

Here is the install manual

http://www.sportcompactonly.com/manu...oma_4050_d.pdf

I just picked up a used one as well a few weeks back and it was a easy install. Do not tighten the 10mm overly tight, they can snap easy.

05-12 are all the same bed so the cover will fit correctly.

My local dealer sells them for $775 + $25 installation. I was looking at one on AnythingAuto.com. Sells for $667 + S&H. It was on sale recently for under $600. They have a coupon for 10% off of anything over $300.

Hey,

I'm about to purchase an undercover tonneau cover for my 03' TRD (standard cab). I currently have a bed liner that covers the rails and was told I'll have to trim that. Does anybody have one of these installed and know which parts I will need to trim? All the way around including tailgate? Just the sides? Only a the middle of the sides? etc... I'm just trying to salvage as much of the bed liner.

Thanks!
Joey

Yes I have this same issue. It's my only complaint about mine. except of course I want much stronger struts or a hood holder type bar for when I have four bikes mounted to the track system I have on the undercover. It's just too much weight for to hold the cover up when I want to get something out. But I have to say to have 4 bike mounted and still be able to lift the cover and access the bed is pretty damn cool and I get some funny looks in parking lots when I do it. Long bed of course so I set the towers/cross bars and bike tracks back just enough so I could lift the cover with out a tire hitting the back of the cab.
Anyway YES other than a small cut off handled broom behind the back seat to sweep off the water before opening, I don't know of a way to solve that issue either

Is the water collecting on the top of the cover still an issue or has it been corrected with newer models?
Thanks,

I had a backflip cover on my 09 and liked it a lot except for the water leaks it had. I have a 13 now and bought a new toolbox for it.

I am searching for a used undercover now so that I can get rid of the toolbox. Once you have a cover on your bed you cannot do without one.

Hope this hasn't already been answered.
I have a new 2014 with the rail system. Does the Undercover come with different brackets for installing on the rail system.
I had one on my Ford Ranger with the tabs that lock on with stainless rings. I like the idea of the newer version with the rail brackets.
