It's the cover that Joeykunz posted a link to, the Checkmate FX. I did install it myself but you will need the help of some friends when moving it around and mounting it. It's also very light, I'm not sure on the exact weight though. I got it with the piano hinges instead of the quick release since the wing is in the way for opening it and I never intend to use the bed for "hauling" anyway. The hinges are screwed to the bed. You will need to install some sort of foam around the cover where it was modified for the wing to keep the water out. I would guess that it is about 95% water tight once you seal round the wing. The only water my truck sees is when I wash it.

I see what your saying about keeping it water tight. I can work around that. Where it goes around the wing was that already modified like that or did you have to trim it?

Attached are some photos of the Checkmate soft flush mount tonneay. I shimmed the rear attacment studs about 1/4" so the spoiler would fit on top of the tonneau. Joe
Nice :) Looks real good

Well,Just got back from Benton KY.Got my tonneau cover put on,modded and all for FREE.

They are really a bunch of nice folks at the factory.Just like 14 people work there ,a Mom and Pop kinda place.

Left at 0345 this AM and got back 1615. It was 650 miles round trip and 2 hours to put on the cover ,tailgate lock and seal where they modified the back under the wing.

I recommend them if you are within a few hours of Western KY. :)
Post some pics if you can. I sure would like to see how they sealed it around the wing..
:D

So you have witnessed this? On what brand cover? I hightly doubt the fx cover (which is a hard cover) would collapse. Heck, even my checkmate soft cover didnt collapse and I had that up to 105.

I call bs.
