Are these new "knob brackets" something you can buy and use to replace the old style setup using the split ring? I have an undercover on my 08( 4th truck to use one )and I love the product.Originally posted by BigBlock: The good news is that ALL the Undercover models now have the most recent knob brackets, they no longer have the little rings that you had to remove to remove the cover.
The cover itself should never touch the paint if it is installed properly as others have said. There is supposed to be a gap on each side and at the tailgate( it does not hang down over the front - only the weatherstrip seal does ). Approx 3/16 +/- on my truck all around. If the cover is eating paint off the tailgate then it is set too far forward.Originally posted by "RANCHER":
Nice cover! I have seen some eat the paint off the end of the bed though.
Interesting.Originally posted by BigBlock:
Armor Lid is an import from China. It does not fit trucks as well as Undercover and the hardware is not as durable.
Undercover is made in the U.S. and it's patented design seen beneath the cover makes it very strong.
Just my opinion: Spend the extra money and get an Undercover.
