Mine will be here Wednesday
Truthfully, maybe mine only sits on the bed rail barely.......I don't know enough about them to know if this is normal. I'm so used to fiberglass covers. But I looked at a lot of them, at work (parking lot) and a lot of my neighbors and they didn't seem to go onto the bed rail that far.....no more than an inch or so for bakflips and flexes. I'm not sure why the would go any further. I do know, but it rained for hours and hours and very hard and traffic was at a stand still on I95 and I40......and my bed was dry. That's enough for me.
Mine sits on the bracket that installs inside the bed/up against the bedrail and the only thing that really goes over the bedrail any "significant"distance is the gasket. I would go out and take a better look, but I don't want to start second guessing the fit......it looks normal and things were dry.
Decided to go with the Revolver X4. Should be here this week.
I was just about to order one - pls keep us posted on price and install....
I live in Canada so price isn't relevant but I'll let you know about the install.
Well the install didn’t go great.
The rails were gouging my tailgate plastic cap with the shims and without the shims it sits too high and doesn’t seal.
Also I can not get it to securely latch. No matter how much or little I move it either the right or left side pops up with a slight bit of force.
I fought with it for a couple of hours and just going to have a specialty place look at it tomorrow.
Installing the revolver x2 on my f150 was a 20 minute process no issue. (also with spray in bed liner). Not sure why this one is so difficult.
Thanks for that feedback. I really like the design of the revolver but reviews have been pretty hit or miss. You're sure they sent you the right part # for the 2019s?
Yeah definitely the right part number. I have a local shop looking at it today so I’ll update later.
I really think I give up on this. My new MX4 looked great on. Then it rained. Entire bed along the sides soaked. It looks like there was nothing stopping the water from coming in from the sides. Water everywhere. Going to be returning this too. Sigh....
