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.

Overview: Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers

Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers are a "best-of-both-worlds" cover. They are available in hard or soft folding styles, so you can get a cover that more accurately fits your needs. What is most unique about this style of tonneau cover is its fold-up 3-panel design. Because of the panel system, these covers are better sealed against weather and harder to break into than some other cover styles, as they have fewer weak points. 
The UnderCover Flex is one of the more popular tonneau covers on the market and is well known for its strength. Each panel is made of a high quality FRP composite material, which is stronger, lighter and more durable than aluminum.

Another unique feature of the UnderCover Flex is its water tight seal and drain tubes that funnel water away from and out of your truck bed. Its design makes it one of the most waterproof covers available, so you know your cargo will be protected. 
Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers generally have 3 locking positions: full coverage, 3/4 bed access and full bed access. Some covers, like the UnderCover Flex, can opened by one person from either end of the vehicle to provide easy access to the front or back of the truck box.
The panels automatically latch, ensuring full security and simple operation. To open or close most Tri-Fold Tonneau Covers, a latch or handle releases the locks for easy access, and once your tailgate is locked, your truck bed is secure.

When it Comes to Tonneau Covers, the BakFlip F1 is Best

Bakflip F1Tonneau covers are an important part of keeping your truck and your cargo safe. Without a cover, the items that you carry are visible to everybody, making them an easy target for sticky fingers. Furthermore, when uncovered, your items are not protected from exposure to the elements, and your truck bed can get damaged as well. You know that you need tonneau covers, but don’t just settle for any old cover. Instead, choose one that will last you for years to come and that can add a hint of style and sophistication to your automobile.

One such cover is definitely the BakFlip F1. It has an amazing, state-of the art tri-fold system, making it incredibly easy to use and also keeping all of your belongings fully safe from even the toughest natural elements. The cover is crafted from hard surfaced panels, which are then coated in epoxy for an even stronger, longer lasting product. In fact, the strength and durability of the BakFlip is what makes it stand out above other covers of its type. While most covers need to be replaced in just a few years, you can expect the BakFlip to last indefinitely.

You might expect to pay a small fortune for such a cover, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that this particular product is very affordable if you order it through Auto Truck Depot. With this retailer’s awesome “price matching promise,” you really can’t go wrong. The seller promises to have the lowest price for this exact product. If you find one cheaper elsewhere, then the store will beat that price by 5%. Don’t worry, this deal applies even if you’ve already made a purchase; just get it done in 30 days!
