Will Installing a Tonneau Cover Violate my Truck's Lease?

A common question asked by those looking to purchase a tonneau cover for their leased vehicle is, will installing a tonneau cover violate my lease agreement? The easy answer is no, and this is because most tonneau covers can be easily installed without making any permanent modifications or changes to the vehicle.

There are various reasons why someone may choose to lease over finance a pickup, and one of the primary reasons is that the monthly lease payments are less than monthly loan payments. Preet Benerjee explains in her article, "Lease or buy a car: What's the better option?" that, "instead of of borrowing the full purchase price of the [vehicle], you are only borrowing the amount the [vehicle] will depreciate over the term of your lease" (Benerjee). A leased vehicle can be traded in every 2-3 years for a newer model, which lets drivers abandon older vehicles and the problems they may accumulate, especially if used for work purposes once the lease term ends. 
The leasing company is the actual owner of the vehicle, so there are certain restrictions to what can be done to a leased vehicle without violating a lease agreement. Types of changes that may violate a lease agreement include any alterations in suspension or any type of modification that will permanently alter the vehicle. This includes drilling or cutting of any kind.
When choosing accessories for your leased truck, it is important to choose ones that can be installed and removed without making any permanent changes. In the article, "Can I put a tonneau cover on a leased truck? Yes. Here's why", Logan Adams explains, "Roll-Up [Access Tonneau] Covers do not require any permanent modification of a truck. They attach to a truck's bed rails using TITE BITE™ clamps that attach to the bed without drilling and maintain a superior grip between the truck bed cover and the bed" (Adams).
Check out this installation video from Access to see the process.

The majority of tonneau covers, like the Extang Solid Fold 2.0, can be installed and removed without any modification, and even used on the next truck. The best thing you can do is check that the tonneau cover you are thinking about purchasing does not require any type of drilling or vehicle modification to install. This can be done by reviewing the product's installation manuals, and if you still have some uncertainty, the best thing you can do is contact the leasing company to find out.

Hottest Tonneau Cover


Are you looking for the mother of all tonneau covers? If so, then it’s time to step up to the Bakflip G2, the newest innovation in these protective covers. Like no other cover, this model can protect your precious cargo from everything Mother Nature can throw at it. Sun damage, rain and other precipitation, and even the heaviest winds don’t stand a chance with this cover blocking them. Your cargo will also be protected from collisions and impact and from sticky fingers when your cargo is left unattended!

The Bak Bakflip G2 is constructed entirely of metal, meaning nothing is getting through this cover! Unlike covers made from soft materials, you don’t have to worry about moisture seeping through and damaging your goods. Plus, the panels on this cover move easily, allowing you to access your cargo without hassle and, when you don’t want to use the cover, you simply move the panels to expose the bed. There’s really no need to take this cover off—ever. Use it when you want and forget about it when you don’t! Installation is incredibly simple as well, and you don’t need a professional to do it in most cases.

You can find this and other great, innovative new covers at Auto Truck Depot. Just make sure that you choose a cover designed to work with your specific truck. Have the make, model, year, and other important information close by as you browse. That way, picking the right cover will be a breeze. Once you place your order, your package should arrive shortly, and you can install your cover and start enjoying it right away!
