This past weekend I installed a hard tonneau cover on my Nissan Frontier pick-up truck. I had been meaning to do it for quite some time, but choosing the right cover has been a challenge.
Nissan sells both a factory hard tonneau and a soft cover tonneau but neither is cheap nor easy to install and remove. The many independent hardware vendors sell hard and soft covers which never quite fit my needs.
After several fits of research over the years, I found a company called Lazer Lite that makes a nice hard aluminum cover which opens with the help of a pair of hydraulic struts. It also removes easily and doesn’t take up much room in the bed itself.
Cat ordered one for me as a surprise for my birthday, and although it took a while for Lazer Lite to build and ship, I’m pretty damn happy with the cover and the customer service we received.
If you’re in the market for a tonneau, I highly recommend Scott and the folks at Lazer Lite.
Here’s some before and after pics of the cover on my truck.
And if there were still any doubts about Mitsubishi’s products:
Joy. Today I made my final payment on my 2002 GMC Sierra. That sucker’s all mine now.
Just got back from my road trip to the Open Source Convention in San Diego. I drove from New York City 5,500 miles round trip in a total travel time of 123 hours, which includes sleep and stops for gas.
Included in that was a straight 19 hour drive across half the country in one sitting, 1,400 miles from Nebraska. More details later…
