How To: Measuring Your Truck Bed for a Tonneau Cover

Before purchasing a tonneau cover or other truck bed accessories, it's extremely important to know the size of your truck bed. It's not as straight forward as checking the advertised length, though. The process of finding the actual bed size of your truck is a commonly asked question, so today I will be giving you the information necessary to get the right number.
When measuring your truck bed, you must measure from the bulkhead to the inside of the tailgate. Measure flush against the inside walls of your truck bed straight across from the bulkhead to the tailgate. Note that it is from inside to inside. *See image for example.

Note: Keep in mind that the advertised truck bed length is rounded from the actual measurement and may be off slightly. This example table shows the actual size in inches compared to the advertised length in feet/inches.

UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover

Tonneau covers are one of the best ways to enhance your truck bed. They provide security for your cargo while protecting it from the elements, and make truck bed storage more useful. If you are thinking about adding a Tonneau Cover to your truck, the UnderCover Flex is a product you must consider.

The UnderCover Flex exceeds the competition with durability, functionality, and security. This cover is made for simplicity. There is absolutely no drilling necessary for installation, and once installed, removing it is easy. Unlike most other tonneau covers, the UnderCover Flex is made of a high quality FRP composite material that is lighter, stronger, and even more dent resistant than aluminum. If security is a consideration, this product has it.

The flex panels automatically latch to the cover's mounting rails and the slam latch system secures your belongings when the tailgate is locked. The UnderCover Flex sits inside the bed rails, which include a rubber seal and drain tubes that carry water away from, and out of the truck bed--making this the most water resistant cover yet, and ensuring your cargo stays dry and protected.


Slam latches ensure your cargo is secure, and also allows for easy access from either side of your truck bed. The UnderCover Flex has three riding positions: full coverage, 3/4 coverage, and full bed access, and with the unique design of the prop rods, the cover can be safely propped in either of these positions, even while driving, for maximum storage and functionality.
