Fleeced Satin Car Cover Fabric from Covercraft Industries

Our newest fabric for indoor storage, Fleeced Satin features a woven polyester outer shell with a super soft white nylon fleece finish underside to provide a gentle touch to fine car finishes.

Fleeced Satin fabric has a slight stretch for a more contoured fit (but not the body-hugging stretch of our Form-Fit® covers). At 4.7 osy (that's ounces per square yard) Fleeced Satin is a bit lighter than Form-Fit's 7.4 osy. The result is a very nice mid-weight custom cover!

An excellent value for indoor use (and limited outdoor use - like at a weekend car show), Fleeced Satin is offered in three colors - RED, GRAY or BLACK.

NOAH® Block-It Fabric Car Covers from Covercraft Industries

The high performance non-woven fabric with the film barrier edge for maximum dirt/dust and moisture resistance...and you still get the ding protection of multi-layer construction.

High Performance Non-Woven Fabric

Dual Protective Outer Layers -- Two outer layers of bi-component spunbond, utilizing side-by-side spinning technology. Each individual fiber is a balance of polypropylene and polyethylene that delivers both strength and softness. The light gray color does not attract heat and the dual layers are treated with UV inhibitors for extended outdoor use.

Microporous Film Middle Layer -- The barrier layer is breathable film, a proprietary stretch-film technology developed exclusively for Kimberly-Clark. The film is stretched and then subjected to a chemical process that creates microscopic holes smaller than droplets of water or dust, yet large enough to allow moisture vapor and heat to escape. This helps reduce the bulk of the nonwoven fabric, while providing an almost solid barrier against the elements.

Soft, Paint-Protecting Inner Layer -- A single, heavier layer of bi-component spunbond, utilizing side-by-side spinning technology. This heavier, single layer (as compared to a single outer layer) provides the "soft touch" necessary for today's water-based paint finishes.

4 Year Warranty

Outdoor or Indoor Use

Dustop™ Fabric Car Covers from Covercraft Industries

Dustop™ - Maximum Protection Against Dust

If you want a car to be as clean when it's uncovered as it was when covered, this is the fabric to use. Non-woven fibers make it almost impossible for dust to penetrate and the multi-layer construction helps prevent dings and dents...

High Performance Indoor Fabric

Soft But Strong Outer Layers - The two top layers are constructed of a polypropylene / polyethylene composite spunbond. These layers take advantage of the best features of both polymers: the superior softness of polyethylene, with the strength and stability of polypropylene.

Dust Barrier - A melt-blown polypropylene layer serves as a barrier to most dust, dirt and pollution. Dustop's multi-layer construction provides substantially better dust protection when compared to traditional woven, single layer fabrics.

Softest Paint Protecting Inner Layer - The high-loft polypropylene / polyethylene inner layer pampers and protects the vehicle's finish.

Year Warranty
Indoor Use Only

Softest against fine paint finishes and almost totally dustproof. The top two layers are polypropylene / polyethylene spunbond with a meltblown polypropylene middle layer to provide a superior barrier against dust. Soft, high-loft composite spunbond inner layer pampers and protects the vehicle's finish. Multi-layer construction provides substantially better dust protection compared to traditional woven material.

Skyjacker Suspensions - Proven Compliant with FMVSS 126 Safety Standards

We have tested the new 2014 GM with our 6-7" lift to prove compliance with the FMVSS 126 mandate. Through SEMA and the advanced testing by Link Engineering that involves robotic steering and outrigger equipment we have demonstrated our compliance with this safety standard and are proud to announce we have passed the rigorous FMVSS 126 physical testing.

A series of tests were done to measure the vehicles stability during the FMVSS 126 test. The sensors and monitors kept track of all the vehicles movements and dynamics as it passed down the track. These tests measure with great accuracy how the vehicle reacts after modification and was done to ensure Skyjacker products work in harmony with the Electronic Stability Control (ESC). The ESC is an active control system that affects both vehicle performance and safety to reduce rollovers. By applying individual brakes and modulating engine torque, this system has been shown to significantly reduce vehicle accident rates and fatalities. With this trend repeatedly being documented worldwide, NHTSA established FMVSS 126, mandating ESC on all production vehicles with a GVW rating of 10,000 lbs or less by September, 2011. Further, it requires vehicles modified by the aftermarket to still meet the performance requirements of the regulation after September, 2012. This regulation provides an opportunity for aftermarket parts manufacturers to take advantage of a program which provides access to the engineering analysis necessary for demonstrating FMVSS No. 126 compatibility.

Our commitment to cutting-edge technology has been a huge focus for the company over our 40 years in business. We have always done testing in-house and built our products to surpass quality standards. We are enthusiasts and also get out and test our products in real world settings. Lonnie McCurry JR said of the test "We feel by taking this additional step and having this third party testing done to show our lifts to be compatible with the ESC equipment is just another way to ensure that our customers know we go above and beyond to give them a quality product". Through the efforts of SEMA we have access to the standards and test procedures needed to self-certify and prove compliance with this new standard.

Best Pickup Trucks of 2013

The modern pickup is more than just a practical performance vehicle. They're now both powerful and luxurious. If you're shopping for a truck you can use for work and for exciting weekend adventures, you should consider these best trucks of 2013, as chosen by US News:

1. 2013 Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 is a great-performing truck, with several engine options. There's a powerful 5.7 liter Hemi V8, and an optional 8-speed automatic transmission. The rear suspension gives it a very comfortable ride, and decent handling. And there are many excellent options.

However, the Ram 150 has a below-average reliability score.

Fuel economy: 17/25 mpg city/highway (V6)

Standard features:

• 6-speed automatic transmission
• 6-speaker stereo with USB port

2. 2013 Ford F-150

There are an excellent range of engines, body styles, and equipment levels with the F-150. There are four engine options. It's practical, with a strong towing capacity and spacious, comfortable seats. It even has a business-ready onboard computer.

The F-150 got an above-average safety score.

Fuel economy: 15/21 mpg city/highway (5.0-liter V8)

Standard features:

• 6-speed automatic transmission
• Manual windows and mirrors
• Air conditioning
• Cruise control
• AM/FM radio
• MyFord touch infotainment

3. 2013 GMC Sierra 1500

The Sierra 1500's V8 options have plenty of power for towing. The two larger V8s have six-speed automatic transmissions. The Sierra has powertrain grade breaking even in normal transmission mode.

This truck has a large turning radius, which can make it hard to maneuver. And the safety score is below-average safety score.

Fuel economy: 15/21 mpg city/highway (5.3 liter V8)

Standard features:

• Manual windows and mirrors
• Air conditioning

4. 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The Silverado 1500 has good towing and hauling capabilities, four engine options, and a comfortable ride. The base V6 is mediocre, but the V8s are great. The Silverado has powertrain grade braking. Its strong chassis gives it one of the highest towing capacities in its class.

The design is a bit aged, though. And the Silverado 1500 got a below-average safety score.

Fuel economy: 15/21 mpg city/highway (5.3 liter V8)

Standard features:

• Manual windows and mirrors
• Air conditioning
• AM/FM radio

5. 2013 Toyota Tundra

The Tundra has strong engines, with good options. Customers have three engine choices, including a powerful 5.7 liter V8.

The interior is spacious, though the plastics seem a bit low-rent. But everything is easy to operate. It has a better than average safety score.

Fuel economy: 16/20 mpg city/highway (two-wheel drive, V6)

Standard features:

• Dual-zone climate control
• Cloth seats
• Power windows
• Auxiliary input jack

The Three Main Styles of Tonneau Covers

If improved aerodynamics aside from style and safety is what you want for your truck, then installing tonneau covers is the way to go. This truck accessory comes in various styles.

The different styles are each designed to transform your truck and make it work better. You can choose among three main styles - hard, soft and retractable.

Soft - such style would consist typical of a soft top cover or tarp supported by a framework. The tarp is usually made of vinyl or leather, which can be pulled over from an aluminum-made framework. The aluminum framework of the tonneau is fixed to the tailgate and bedside of the truck. The tarp is then fastened down using slide rails or snaps. Some of this style of truck covers are usually flat and laid out across the truck bed. This is the case with brands like the Truxedo Truxport. Meanwhile, frame brows are being used for other styles so that it arcs across the center. This is the case with the Extang Black Max Tonneau. Such style usually helps to channel away the snow or water from the truck bed.

Generally, soft tonneaus are quite affordable but in terms of security, such are least to be depended upon. Many soft styles cannot be locked. Furthermore, because of the materials used, such styles are the fastest to show signs of wear and tear, as compared to the hard cover styles. There are manufacturing companies that have used the look of soft truck bed covers and adapted it into a foldable framework. Such allows for access abilities and versatility that is provided by retractable styles, but relatively cheaper. Similar soft styles are also produced to work well with truck bed mounted with toolboxes.

Hard - these styles are typically made using fiberglass and such can cover the whole truck bed with several folding panels or just a large sheet. Extang Solid Fold is one hard tonneau cover model that offers easier access. One-piece cover units, however, usually cater to customization like paintings that would match the entire truck design. The weight and price of such style is its downside, though. Hard truck bed covers are usually a bit more expensive compared to the soft styles. In addition, the entire constructions of the cover and its strut systems and hinges that will support it into an open position considerable add more weight to the truck.

Retractable - this is undoubtedly the style which is most advanced and typically, the most costly. Construction materials for this style vary. The cover is usually composed of panels with hinged system that rides on a track system mounted on the bed. The cover then rolls out into a sort of spool that is mounted at the front of the truck bed. Many of such styles allows the user to lock the tonneau tightly, but sometimes, during intervals, also allows various amounts of the truck bed to be left open especially when one has to haul bigger, taller things.

If you are a truck owner who is a stickler for efficient storage and security there are models that integrate your retractable truck bed cover into your truck toolbox for more effective storage and security.

Tonneau Covers: Past and Present

When you have a pickup truck, it is much more than a set of wheels to travel in. In fact, it is often viewed as both transportation and a tool with which to get a job done. However, as a "tool" your pickup truck bed frequently takes a bit of abuse. But, thanks to products like tonneau covers, you can protect your truck bed. But have you ever given thought to how the tonneau covers came to be? After all, it's not as if they have always been in use! Here is a brief history of tonneau covers.

Tonneau is actually a French word meaning barrel, cask or container. They were originally designed to serve as a protective cover for unoccupied passenger seats in convertibles, roadsters or pickup trucks. It was an optional element that allowed the vehicle's owner to use or remove at their convenience. They were first used in Europe, but were eventually manufactured in the US by Cadillac in 1910. Like today, the covers came in both a soft or hard version and opened using a hinging mechanism or by rolling up. Of course, as time has moved on, so have the tonneau covers and today they are used primarily for pickup trucks.

With time, it was found that covers offer more than just a protective covering for one's vehicle, although this is certainly a great reason to have a tonneau cover installed in your truck. Tests have discovered that a vehicle with a tonneau cover has minimal buffering, the turbulence caused when wind/air passes over the windshield, regardless of the speed at which one is traveling. In addition, some tonneau covers, in particular those that help insulate the cab of the truck, are capable of helping to retain heat and some are even designed so that they help reduce the amount of UV exposure the driver receives.

Tonneau covers come in a variety of styles and materials. The most commonly found are those made from cloth or vinyl that is stretch tautly then either snapped into place or held in place using a rolling system. A retractable cover is also made that is designed to be mounted to the truck and then retracts from the tailgate to the back of the cab. The retractable system is considered by many to be the most convenient, especially if you are not always concerned about covering the truck bed. For a heavy-duty tonneau, one will want a cover made from fiberglass or hard plastic. These heavier covers like the retractable ones, can be locked, but added bonuses, are that the hard tonneau covers can be designed to match the truck, can be designed to rise vertically or even to have multiple compartments.

Extang Solid Fold Tonneau Cover Video

The Extang Solid Fold tonneau cover installs and removes faster and easier than any hard tonneau cover on the market, so if you are looking for a tonno that will install in no time flat, this is the right product. It comes completely pre-assembled in one box. There are neither drain tubes nor rails to install. What you have to do is center the cover on the truck bed and engage four clamps. All in all, it'll take you around 5 minutes to finish the process. You'll need no tools and there will be no drilling involved. And when the cover is not needed, you can either fold it at the cab and secure with the built-in straps or remove it.

Another advantage of this cover is that it's designed to fit your truck bed even if you already have a toolbox installed. It can accommodate any standard toolbox (18'' -- 20'' wide) no matter what brand, and the L-Channel sealing will provide a water-tight seal against the toolbox. The anodized L-shaped rail incorporates a box rail on the underside for rigidity and a closed-cell d-lip seal to seal the gap between the cover and the toolbox. You simply center the L-rail on the truck bed and tighten the T-handle clamp.

This cover has a tri-fold design that allows for easy loading and quick cargo access. The frame and 1'' thick panels are crafted from the anodized aircraft-grade aluminum and come in black textured poly-tex paint finish that protects the cover from the harmful UV rays and fading. Even though the cover is ultra-strong and built to handle any weather, it is really lightweight: the construction weights approximately 50 lbs. The improved flexible hinge system is water-resistant and ultra-strong to provide superior performance.

Extang Revolution Tonneau Cover Video

Please welcome the new generation of roll-up tonneau covers! Extang's Revolution tonno puts an end to all the hassle we usually have with the traditional roll-ups. This cover is the industry's first roll-up tonno that uses absolutely no snaps and no velcro. An integrated four-way tension system provides instant fastening, allows you to quickly close the cover, and keeps the tarp tight without having to make any additional adjustments. The spring-loaded double-latch system located at the tailgate makes the cover extremely easy to open and close. To open, you simply drop the tailgate and release the latches, while to close, you only have to click the tonno in place.

The cover comes with the pre-drilled aluminum rails to ensure quick clamp placement and fast no-drill installation. Thanks to the unique side rail design, the cover boasts ultra low profile that gives a near-flush fit. The low profile construction mixed with the black vinyl tarp gives your truck a sleek look while the cover is closed, and because all the rails and bows come black too, the truck bed will look great even when the tonno is rolled up to the cab. Talking about the bows, they provide horizontal tarp tension and conveniently roll up with the cover, so there will be no loose parts to store. The bows are spring-loaded and made of aluminum.

K&N Extreme Filter Testing

The secret of the K&N high-flow filters lies in the unique filtering media, which doesn't restrict the air flow. It consists of four to six layers of cotton gauze, oiled to improve the filtering capabilities, and sandwiched between pleated aluminum media to retain even more dirt. The crisscrossed cotton fibers capture the dirt particles, providing high air flow even when the filter is clogged. With this, the K&N filters are washable, which means lifelong use, no additional expenses, and no waste. You won't have to clean a K&N filter too often as it can last up to 50,000 miles before a cleaning is required. Each filter is guaranteed to one million miles, so be sure, a K&N filter will serve you for a really long time. Let K&N filters help your vehicle breathe and run easier.
