PowerBoard NX: Where to Put the Magnets and Sensors

The PowerBoard NX uses wireless sensors and magnetic switches to signal the boards to deploy. This means you don't need to hook into your factory wiring harness, and that's a very good thing.

But it does mean you need to get those magnets aligned properly. That's a little thing, but we're still going to show you exactly what's up with that.

If you're at all unsure where the sensors and magnets go, this video should answer every question.

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.
