I purchased a PE cover for my 2006 Chevy Silverado the first time in April of 2006. I had someone install it for me since I had heard so many problems with the instructions and everything. The product worked well and after 114,000 miles on the truck and someone trying to break into it I ended up replacing the cover. Along the 6 years the cord to pull the cover closed broke, the lock broke, 2 panels of aluminum broke, however the cover did perform well for what I wanted which was simply a cover for my truck bed. This time I had my son help me with the install as he was in state visiting for a few short days. We opened the package and the rails had dents in them and scratches. I had removed the old cover earlier that morning and that part was a breeze! The new cover instructions were a bit sketchy and we ended up taking the cover on and off a couple of times to get it done right. Finally we tried to close the cover and it would not close! I called PE, they told me the only solution was to remove the cover and feed the fabric into the track then re-install the entire process again. I had an issue with the old cover a couple of months ago slipping into the canister, so I used a piece of 7/16th waferboard to slip past into the canister and press up slightly allowing the cover clearance to feed onto the track. This worked and saved us at least 2 hours of work! The product is great, but please improve the instructions! A video of the install would be very helpful!
