The Equator is the same as a Nisson Frontier extended cab with a 6 ft. bed.
I Received my G2 from AutoAnything. Shipping was FAST and it arrived well packed and free of any damage. I placed the order over the phone with sales rep, Mike. He was very courteous and informative. Got my order right and gave me a great price along with a Fathers Day discount!
A factory tag on the G2 showed that a fella by the name of Jose built my tonneau cover. Good job Jose!
I had my son help me lift and position the cover onto the truck's bed but I could have done the job myself. Took us about 40 minutes (10 minutes just to un-pack it) and if I were to install another, I could do it in half the time! Watch the U-Tube video. Its of great help along with reading the enclosed instructions.
The G2 looks great and it secures all my gear with the locking tailgate that is standard on the Equator. Water proof? No! That is if the truck's cab is parked slightly elevated higher than the bed. Besides supporting the tonneau cover the inside rails act as rain gutters. They are about a inch too short in length along the bed rails of the truck's bed. Water drips down from these rails the depth of the bed and splatters onto the truck's bed, then runs where it may. If the rails were a inch longer, the water would find its way out better between the bed and tailgate without getting anything wet inside. It is easy to fold up and down by myself. I would have liked to have had a longer warranty because I usually keep a truck for 8 to 10 years. We'll see how long it lasts and I will write another review in a few years. For those interested in buying this same tonneau cover, my ratings of the G2 are fair to the manufacturer and honest to future purchasers.
