Well, I finally received my cover from Extang. However, after receiving it I am a little less than thrilled. My first cover had a small dent in it, the center panel was not properly glued to the inner structure, and it leaked pretty bad through the seams in the top of the cover where it folds. One call to Extang, & I had a replacement cover on the way.
Upon receiving the replacement cover, I immediately noticed several issues with it. First there was touch up paint in several places.
Second the tailgate seal was improperly put on.
Third there were nicks and scratches on the cover.
This cover also leaked fairly substantially, around the edges of the the cover and through the seams in the top of the cover where it folds. It honestly looked like this was a refurbished cover or a factory second.
Called Extang again and received a replacement cover for my replacement. The first thing I see is a dent in the cover (probably due to shipping)
I also notice some nicks along the top.
And also some excess glue out of one of the seams on the top part of the panel
I haven't been able to test this one's waterproofness yet. It seems like one of the better one's that I've received
My question is to Tacomaworld, am I being too OCD about the cover that I am receiving? Should I expect a near perfect product, for the amount of money that I spent on this? It shouldn't leak a drop of water through the folding seams on the topside of the cover? Right?
As a side note Extang's customer service has been fantastic to deal throughout this whole experience (Very understanding, apologetic, and eager to help)
