The cover was easy and quick to install
June 13, 2017
The cover was easy and quick to install. The instructions were a little confusing especially when it came to the long weather strip. I also saw people on YouTube installing the cover a little different, mostly regarding which clamps to tighten first, how to properly align, etc.
Looks great on my 2016 Ram 1500 SLT. Doesn't flap around at high speeds. The best part is I've noticed no leakage, and I've checked multiple mornings after any sort of rain. Only leakage I noticed was after going through a car wash, which I'm assuming was due to the high powered fans. If I had to leave something in the bed of the pickup overnight with the cover on, I wouldn't worry about it getting wet.
Overall a great cover at an even better price and I couldn't be happier.
Excellent quality, heavy frame
April 28, 2017
Excellent quality, heavy frame, and vinyl covering. Quick installation on my 2014 Ram, 6' box. Quick delivery a plus also.
Good all around product, and service, both qualities missing so many places today. Shopping a positive experience...
Great with toolbox
January 29, 2016
I wanted a hard cover but I have a low profile toolbox that I wanted to be able to get into fairly easily. This cover was the answer. I love that with it closed you don't even know the toolbox is in the bed. Rolled up I can open the toolbox nearly all the way.
When I got the item it was missing the clamps but they shipped them out pretty quickly after letting them know.
Overall I'm pleased with the cover, it works well, and looks good.
I have this on a 2013 Ram 2500 crewcab.
Amazing top for 2014 Ram 2500 Mega Cab
October 11, 2015
Wow, easy to install and looks amazing. I have wanted one of these for years for my trucks and I am so glad I got this one. It looks great and keeps all moisture out of the bed. Fits my 2014 Ram 2500 mega cab perfectly. The only issue I have is that there is a gap at the head of the bad where the cover meets the top of the bed. Probably smaller than 1/4". I bought some foam and put it under there to keep that sealed. Other than that every other part of the bed is sealed completely. When you lock it down it is secure and keeps unwanted people from looking in the bed of your truck. I keep my fifth wheel back there and did not want anyone walking off with it! Obviously the sides are velcro'd shut so anyone could get into the bed that way but it would take a little work. Out of sight out of mind! Would recommend this cover for anyone looking to be able to cover their bed or uncover it easily and look professional.
Best cover for the price
June 9, 2014
If you are looking for a soft, roll-up tonneau cover, this is the one you should purchase. I had this equivalent on my previous truck and loved it. That was a couple years ago, and they have changed up the design a little bit for the better. Install was a breeze and only took about 30 minutes with a single 1/2" wrench (2014 Ram 1500, 6'4" bed). I like this over-the-bedrail version better than the low profile versions because I don't want to lose the 3+ inches on the inside of the bedrail. The new auto-tensioning system means this cover is really tight! We shall see over time how well it adjusts to cold/hot extremes, but looking at the construction of it, I'm not worried. The vinyl is of a good quality and the clamps hold the rails tight to the top of the bed. Because I have over-the-rail caps on the sides of the bedrails, there was an extra bit of weatherstripping required on the bulkhead, but this was supplied in the box, which was nice.
There are only 2 things that I could possibly complain about - neither of which is exclusive to this cover;
1) This covers the stake pockets. For me, that is not an issue - I don't have any plans to use the stake pockets. I wish there was a good soft roll up cover out there that was over the rail, but could also leave the stake pockets open, but I have not found it yet. To me, it is well worth it to give up the stake pockets to gain the extra inch+ in height when closed and extra 3+ inches across the bed when rolled up.
2) The shiny vinyl - this is a personal preference, so It isn't really that big of a deal. Back in the day, I had a mopar roll up cover that was vinyl covered with a nice waterproof canvas. this left a nice flat fabric finish that did not distract in sunny weather, and really set the truck apart (at least, I liked it). There really aren't many covers out there that utilize this set up, and definitely not in this price range, so I can live with a shiny cover to save a few hundred bucks.
Quick and easy installation
September 7, 2017
Advertised as 5 minute installation, and it took just under 10 minutes single handed. Perfect fit on 2005 Ford F150 STX. It can be removed by one person in under 2 minutes, and put back on in about the same amount of time. Don't know how it'll hold up to snow, but it seems pretty heavy duty and likely to last.
April 7, 2017
I have always had a camper shell on my trucks, of which I've had over a dozen, so I can utilize the bed space on a regular basis. I decided to try a Tonneau cover so I could still utilize my bed space, but not have the big shell behind me whenever I look out the back window. This cover has performed flawlessly! It fit's my 2012 F150 Crew Cab perfectly and took all of 3-4 mins to install. It has a water tight seal where I have taken it through a standard car wash many time with no damage or leakage. I for see this cover lasting for quite some time and will purchase another when this one wears out......but that may be a while!
This made my truck look better.
September 22, 2016
It installed quickly.It seams to work fine.It made my truck look a lot neater. No more looking at my junk I haul around.*A bonus is I no longer have to deal with random people throwing trash in the bed of my truck.
So good I bought it again!
December 2, 2015
This is the second one of these I have purchased, the first in 2010 and then again recently. The first top held up until the day a freak tree limb landed on it and broke a support spanner bar. Until that point, after 5 years, it was still just as weather-tight as on day 1. I use this top everyday and never have water in the the truck bed, even in Florida gully-washers. I will likely keep buying trucks as long as I can put this top on them.
Great Cover - Fast & Easy Installation
April 17, 2015
This is a great cover. Super fast and easy to install. The bows are arched to shed water and snow. The fabric is rugged and the stitching is very nicely done. The cam mechanisms that lock it down to the bed rails are very clever in their design. It looks good, works great, and is super easy to install, open, & remove. I have another brand of tonneau cover on one of my other trucks. It's a nice cover too, but I like this one better.
Great Design. Perfect If You're In And Out Of Your Bed Frequently.
September 25, 2014
Just installed this on a new (for me) F150. Had one on an older truck for the past 8 years and love it. My new truck came with a spotless $500 Truxedo cover which I immediately sold (for more than the cost of the Lund) and replaced with this one. I'm in my bed countless times every day, and the tri-fold is the ONLY way to go. With the really slick latching design, this one pops off in a minute if you need the full bed space, and can be reinstalled just as quickly. The Lund design team should get some award that only engineers know about for this design - it's really good. The only minus is that I'd say it doesn't seal quite as well as the Velcro roll-ups. Periodic re-taping with fresh camper seal keeps this to a minimum.
Four Star Reviews:
October 5, 2016
Cover appears to be good quality and feels sturdy. Like others have mentioned this could be about a little longer but it does cover both ends. Very easy and fast to roll up for full bed use. I would buy this again even though it is a touch short and would be nice if it had manual tension. Can't expect perfection at this price. Trucks with factory plastic bed rail covers will need extra weather stripping along the front of box to raise it to the same level, topper tape works great.
Good so far...
November 10, 2015
Got this for my new 2015 Ram 2500. Fits pretty good, I do wish it was a inch of so longer... Had it out in the rain a few times and so far no water in the box. I did have to use the included foam gap filler for the front of the box. And the rubber seal at the back just catches the tail gate (hence wanting it a little longer). Also please note the description on amazon is not correct. This cover has the self adjusting tension on the latches. Here is the link to the product on TruXedo site: http://www.truxedo.com/truxport/land.php
For the price and how easy it is to install, so far I'm happy... Now only time will tell how long it will last, and its first winter will soon be here, the truck sits outside and we get snow... That will be the real test.
Nice cover! Latches needed tweaking.
July 8, 2015
Had this for more than a year and we still love it! Handy to use and really keeps the contents dry. I was having a problem with the latches popping open while driving. I carefully bent the latch hooks a little more and it has been fine since. I still make sure the latches are fully seated before closing the tailgate. This is on a 2012 Ram 1500 Quad Cab.
Decent cover for my 2014 Ram 1500 Quad Cab, but buyer beware that Amazon's ad is incorrect!
February 4, 2015
This is a decent cover, went on easy and looks good but buyers beware, Amazon's ad for this product is incorrect. While the ad depicts manual adjustment for the tension on this cover, the latch tension is preset from the factory. This means you are at the mercy of the expanding fabric and the person who set it up at the factory. All in all not a bad cover for the price, but had I realized that I couldn’t manually adjust the tension I would of spent more money on another cover that has the ability to be adjusted.
So far, so good
November 23, 2014
I just put this on my 2014 ram 1500 crew (6.4' bed) and I was a little skeptical when I read online the ease for installation but it really was EZ to install.
The weather strip it came with was the perfect length and the clamps have teeth that fit perfectly with the rails. I thought the clamps would be tilting when installed but they won't move when installed right. So it will look great when you have it rolled up too.
Of course I just put it on, so only time will tell on the durability. It looks like a fantastic value though and anybody that buys it will be pleased with the finished results.
Installed on 2006 Ford F150 Supercab
June 27, 2016
Bought for 2006 Ford F150 Supercab. The rails on styleside beds on these trucks are a little wider at the back of the cab than the tailgate and this cover is square so the cover doesn't follow the contour of the bed. Decent cover for the money.
October 17, 2015
Excellent cover for the truck. It installed in under 5 minutes. I've used it on two cross country trips and it has worked well. Having the ability to keep luggage and other items securely in the bed while on the road is great. It does a good job of keeping water out. Water only entered during a record rainfall we recently had. I rated it 4 of 5 stars only because the shape of the cover does not follow the contour lines of the truck body, but it does completely cover the bed. I would recommend this to a friend.
WHERE DO I FIND REPLACEMENT PARTS?
January 25, 2014
I purchased the Lund 95073 Genesis Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover for my F150. It is a great cover even though it leaks water into the bed. My problem is that the joints/hinges in the fold broke. I also need the rivets that are holding the hinge.Help. Where do I purchase this part???I recommend this tri-fold cover but make sure you measure the bed before you purchase so you can receive the right size.Slim-Jim
Couple of minor problems
May 4, 2012
Arrived in one day and quality was decent for the price. Couple of minor problems with installation. Front of the cover sits about a 1/4" above the rail. Like another reviewer said a weather strip corrected this problem. Once the front was fasten I had to twist the rear a little to get it to sit square on the bed. Don't know if it was due to the plastic rails that Ford has installed on the bed or what, but it looks good now. All in all I'm pleased with the purchase and cover. I did notice that when its folded up the latches don't recede enough to stop the latches from resting on the tarp. Only time will tell if they will wear through and damage the tarp.
Nice cover, nice price
September 13, 2010
Nice cover and fits well on my 2006 F150 with a few easily fixed issues.First, as another reviewer commented, if you have the plastic bed rails, the clamps put stress on them. I simply used my dremel tool and cut out the 1/4" needed so the clamps hit the metal beneath the plastic bed rail covers. Took about 15 minutes...or one beer.Second, if you have the plastic bed rails, there will be a gap, about 3/8", at the front of the bed. My kit came with a piece of weather stripping to put on the cover in the front to fill this gap. However, it was a bit small and I still had a gap. Easy fix with some thicker weather stripping.Other than these 2 small issues, so far the cover fits well and looks nice also. It's the perfect cover for my needs and easily removes and installs back in a few minutes. I'd recommend it, especially at this price!Update, 3 years later, and last winter one of the hinges broke. I wrote to Lund and they sent me 4 brand new hinges at no cost and no questions asked! Great customer service and I'm still very happy with the cover.
Good Price, the fit could be better.
April 13, 2010
I bought this item from Warehouse Deals. Which is amazon.com's open box and used product company. I paid two hundred and six dollars for this tonneau with PRIME shipping. For the price, I couldn't go wrong. I strongly suggest people looking at this cover buy it used from amazon.com warehouse deals. The package you can tell had been opened, but it appears it was a customer that bought it and it didn't fit, so he returned it. It is in great shape with some minor dirt marks, but no physical harm was an issue.Now as far as the product itself. It's a good tonneau cover, but it doesn't fit the way I would like it too. It should be an inch wider on both sides, and two inches longer from cab to tailgate. This model was sold for Ford F150 2004-2008. So I am not sure if they just said let's sell this for 09-10 models also. I have a 2010 Ford F150 SuperCab XLT. It has a good look but is kind of small. I will keep the product because it does look good, and had an excellent price.I previously had an Extang Trifecta for my Chevrolet Silverado 1500. It was perfect from fit to finish. I would have gone with the Extang Trifecta again but Amazon didn't have the model for my truck on it's website. Other places in the net had it for $385. I bought this Lund because of the price. If I wanted to wait and save a few bucks to buy it, I would have gotten the Extang Trifecta 44410. The Extang has a better system for it's latches IMO.You won't go wrong for the price of the Tonneau. Like I said, it's not a perfect fit but for the price and quality, it's worth it.

Good, but could be better.
July 19, 2016
It did not take long to install, about 30 minutes and is engineered to install well. The clamps are quite good.
As others have said, this cover does not have easily adjustable tension. The Amazon description is wrong.
And it works, but I believe an inch longer would be better. 1/2" in front and 1/2 in back. Mostly because of the design of
the tailgate. That costs it 1 star.
I wrote to TruXedo about this cover not having the manual tensioning device. Their advice was for me to buy a different product if I wanted that. But their description says it has the device so how would I know what to order?
For that response I am reducing the stars. Very disingenuous on the part of TruXedo.
Plastic parts don't seem to hold up.
July 13, 2016
The very back brace broke after 7 months of usage. The plastic inserts snapped. Now I will see how good their customer service is at fixing a problem. I loved it until the breakdown.
Looks great and serves its purpose well
December 29, 2015
Looks great and serves its purpose well. But the plastic hinge between panels two and three broke within a month. I'm hoping it is covered under warranty.
This is for 6ft bed
December 17, 2013
This is for 6ft bed. NOT short 5ft bed. I didn't like material. I am going to buy either bakflib fibermax or foldacover g4 elite. I like the way bakflip looks because my neighbor has it and it looks flushed but g4 elite has some good fearures.
Just okay, but good customer service!

I've owned a similar cover from RUGGED (brand name), and the quality of the cover and the latches seemed better than this one. I bought this one because the Lund brand is a respected name. I had water penetrate under the foam seal (but not past it). I was surprised to find that the water froze and the cover stuck a bit (not a big deal, the cover still came off). I don't recall the RUGGED brand cover doing that. the cover material also seems like a cheaper grade vinyl.I will have to see if the hinges will hold with time, because they are made of plastic. It broke off on my RUGGED cover (which they replaced free of charge, admitting to a design flaw). I mention this because these covers are practically the same in design.But it's a cover, and it stays on most of the time. For the same price, see if you find the RUGGED brand. I have some regrets (but couldn't find it for sale on Amazon). still, this Lund cover gets 3 stars because it fits well on my truck and does the job.Update - 1/5/12:Just as I feared, the rear hinges broke after a year's use. It was a really cold night (about 10F), and as I unfolded it and lowered the second third fold, the plastic hinges broke. I guess the cold made it too brittle to handle the impact of being dropped the last few inches.I called customer service and they are shipping warranty replacement hinges to me free of charge. Very friendly top-notch service! Always good to see a company stand by their product.Otherwise, the cover has held up well to the weather. Still getting some water seepage into the bed after heavy rain, so don't expect a weather-tight seal.

Like it was sitting on a shelf in a box for years, Was stuck together. Seals were all out of alignment from sitting. Latches when folded open position dig into top of cover cause they do not stay clipped down. Luckily I'm mechanical and was able to fix alot of its shortcomings with the seals. But no where near the Quality of the extang one I had on my last truck.
Does not last; cheaply made; buy another brand
November 22, 2015
I use to think Lund was a good brand befor I bought this thing. It seemed ok when I took it out of the box and then I noticed that the latches are plastic and the joints that hold it together are also plastic. The cover fits loose on the frame so it flaps bad even when grieving down a city road, on the highway it looks like it's going to rip off at any second. After 3 months of use the frail seems to be doing fine (them again it just sits there) but the cover is sagging like I tied a tarp over some nailed together 1X1. I have had other soft tonneau coves on my trucks in the past and the quality of this one is no wear closed to the other ones; I will never buy a Lund again after owning this thing.

JUNK!!! Lasted just over a year and went completely downhill. Replaced with another brand. This cover sucks
Lasted less than one year.
May 11, 2017
I purchased this product a little under a year ago. I only used it on a couple occasions, mainly for when we drive down to the Outer Banks so that my luggage does not get wet or stolen while staying at a hotel on the long drive down. The cover does not stay on my truck, and when is not in use, went back right into the original box that it came in. This week, less than one year after owning this product, one of the latches that secures the cover to the truck snapped and caught wind, causing the entire cover to fly off of my truck and causing damage to the trim on my pickup bed. I am extremely unsatisfied that this cover only lasted for less than 5 uses and now I have damage to my truck.This cover was attached correctly and we followed all directions in order to ensure the security of the cover, however their cheap plastic latches did not last. Would not reccomend this product if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to the multitude of expensive tonneau covers offered on amazon.

I got one for a gift for someone and the Amazon web site said it fit the truck. Well, after getting it and giving it as a gift, it was the wrong one. Now, it's past 30 days and they will not take it back. I look stupid. My friend don't get the correct gift and they have my money on their Amazon card and I'm stuck with this item I do not need and at 22% interest. The rich keep getting richer one way or another. Thanks Amazon Morons.
