Installation Process

Both covers can be easily installed within 20 minutes without drilling. However, there is a slight difference in the installation of both.

TruXport can be installed as follows:

  1. Install the bulkhead seal over the bed cap.
  2. Attach end cap seals to the end of the rails.
  3. Place the rails over the sides of the bed and the cover over the bed cap.  
  4. Attach the cover to the side rails with the help of end caps.
  5. Fix with side rails by using clamps.
  6. Roll the cover towards the tailgate and at its latching end attach the foam seals so that it locks in position over the side rails.

Edge’s installation requires the following steps:

  1. Attach the bulkhead seal over the bed cap.
  2. Fix the side rails with the help of clamps.
  3. This cover has a header rail provided with two bolts which slide into the holes on the front ends of the side rails.
  4. Fix the header rail with the side rails by nut tightening the bolts passed through the holes on the side rails.
  5. Roll the cover towards the tailgate where it locks with side rails with a slight push.

TruXport is easier to install as compared to its opponent. Its installation does not require bolting as its side rails have end caps which serve as the attachment sites for the cover with the rails.
