Craig's List Score !

Everyday, for years, when I first go online daily, I do a Craiglist search of all of the NJ sub-sites. I type in 2 search words in the auto parts section. 1-Dodge, 2-Seats. Mainly because I want to find any parts for either of my trucks(dodge search) and because my Ram desperately needs new seats. Driver's side is worn out.

Well, what pops up yesterday ? This little gem right here. Brand new and for only $150. This is especially nice because my truck used to have an Extang Full-Tilt tonneau on it. But, some idiot stole it when I was parked at the mall a few months back. I mean really, who/how/wtf, who steals a tonneau in broad daylight ? Joke was on them though, that cover is non-functional/mountable without the bed mount frame. idiots left that behind. LOL, it's so stupid you have to laugh. Thing was on 3 different trucks, 10+ years old, and really starting to look crappy anyway. Got my money's worth for sure.

I like a tonneau that hinges/lifts up, so you don't have to undo them to get inside. Well this doesn't hinge up. It does fold neatly 3 times into a compact piece that stays up by the cab. It then has these little quick release straps to hold it secure. I figured it was just the flat clamp down type. Close enough for me. If you need to, you can literally take it off in under 2 minutes with no tools and one person. I thought I'd buy this to hold me over until I had the coin for a new Extang ($450+). This is close enough that my needs are filled. Scratch another mod off the list. All those Craig's list searches have paid off with a cool little find.
