Exactly what was expected
My wife and I installed this cover in about an hour on our 1997 chevy CK 1500 ExCab.frame work is good as well as the cover and I also like the fact that the frame is black and blends in with the cover very nice, our old cover was aluminum colored and was very visible ( not atractive )and it was not an Extang BlackMax.. We are very picking with our truck, bought new, still looks it,this cover is a big + for the looks. I would recommend this to anyone.
this is my second extang tonneau cover,the first was on a ZR-2. this one is now on a 1988 chev.cheyenne short box 4wd. the blackmax offers a more convenient access to the front of the box, a big plus in that regard. the last snap was a pain in the corner as the temp. was lower than the optimum 65 plus needed for ease of installation, a minor glitch that could have been avoided had i not waited so long to install the cover. that aside the cover is exactly what i expected i'd buy another. j.r.b.
