Angry PERAGON Bed Cover "SUCKS"

Anyone ready to order a new PERAGON Bed Cover for their Tundra. They really look and sound great on their web site. I ordered one after seeing it on their wed site and I have to say after receiving it I’m NOT near as impressed as I was after seeing it operate on the PERAGON web site. Before you make your purchase check out this review. ~ www.geocities.com/peragon_cover_review/index.html ~ The review is a little exaggerated but you’ll get the idea. ~ My cover was delivered promptly by FedEx ( In less then 2 Weeks ) and I installed it by myself in about 4 hours and I took my time reading all the directions so I would have as few “Do Over’s” as possible. Two guys (in review) taking 6 hours would require a lot of Beer time. Maybe that explains them using more tools and the stripped threads. I found the hardware to be all there and usable. I was also able to install the cover with the tool suggested, although I didn’t have to use the Electric drill for anything. I did call the PERAGON Tech line once with a question. I did have to leave a message but they called me back within about 10 min. and was very helpful. ~ WITH ALL THAT SAID ~ after I got it installed I found a major problem. With the cover open and folded up in front of the truck bed it takes up a lot more space then PERAGON suggested. You will lose about 2 foot of your bed and that’s a big problem with a short bed double cab. ( It Really SUCKS ) I would look else where for a cover if I were making the same purchase again. BUT if any of you still think you would like the PERAGON cover I can sell you one CHEAP! :smokin:

Thanks for the information. I have been looking at those myself. I guess I will look elsewhere.

Truxedo.

07 DC SR5 TRD 4x4 5.7 TRD exhaust, 85K miles. Truxedo Lo-Pro with deck rails. Front Susp: Stock coilovers, 4" lift (

), swapped extra spacers for Bilstein 5100s on lowest setting, wheel well height still 41.5." Rear Susp: ProComp ES3000 #326510 (2.25" taller than stock), 1.25" blocks plus PRG mini-pack (

) gives 2.25" total lift, parking brake cable bracket spacers, wheel well height 43." Front diff and rear ds drop; trailer hitch electrical harness tucked up above bumper. After 21K miles swapped 305/65/18 BFG AT for 285/75/18 Toyo AT, still on stock 18x8x60 offset TRD wheels, about 1/8" clearance to sway bar. Like the extra height but miss the width. Added 5th 285/75/18 Toyo AT as spare. 75K went to new 285/75/18 Toyo AT II. Bed Bounce: Stiffer E-tires are worse than stock P-metric; biggest improvement from PRG mini-pack, slight improvement from shocks. Still a stiff ride but tolerable now. Best things about this truck: 5.7 and transmission, interior size and comfort, very quiet at high speed. Worst things about this truck: bed bounce, no VSC in 4wd, mileage sucks above 70. SOLD 8/2013

If you want to know when the last time someone was on here click on their name then View Public Profile. The page that opens will show you a persons last activity. In this case the op, Blackstar, hasn't been on here since December of 2008. Like Johnny said, he probably wont be responding.

2012 Crewmax TRD 5.7, 4x4, 15% tint all around plus sunstrip. Ionic Gladiator running boards. Weathertechs front and rear. Line X, AVS vent visors. Viper 5301 2 way remote start, MBRP S5316304 cat back exhaust. Bakflip Fibermax tonneau cover.
Traded in my 05 4x4 DC, AFE CAI, Magnaflow Catback15820, Line X bedliner, Rampage Patriot running boards.
