Do a search of some of my old posts. I have written extensively on the topic and lots of pics...."Everything you want tonneau about the tonneau" is one of my epics. The tonneaus are not made anymore so if you want to go this route I would grab it. They are almost impossible to find now. It is one of my favorite mods and looks awesome!

I use mine whenever there's going to be a stretch of rain-free days. It's great for those times you want the top down, but also need to carry something in the passenger side that wouldn't like the wind.

Unfortunately, I think what will happen when you try to purchase from these sites is that it will be "out of stock". They will explain that the need to update their website. Definetly worth trying though!

I did not try to purchase so I can not confirm.

I have had the GM tonneau for several years and love the look of it, either full on or drivers side open. The only thing I don't like is that the seats have to be all the way back and down to get the head rests to fit into their pockets. I drive with my power drivers seat raised and not quite all the way back, so I have to adjust the seat each time I use the cover.

With any used cover, make sure you get the plastic clip that holds the front bar to the dash.
