Extang is a name not unknown to many in the automotive industry. Having pioneered various tonneau styles and features since its founding in 1982, Extang is now the acknowledged leader in tonneau cover manufacturing. Tonneau covers are coverings usually put at the back of the pick-up to protect loaded cargo from rain and all kinds of damaging components. The Extang Tonneau is one kind of tonneau cover that is truly designed to last. Made of premium sewn, commercial grade tarp, the Extang Tonneau fits the sideways stake of virtually all kinds of side rails, fitting whatever pick-up type you have.

There are many reasons why the Extang Tonneau truly benefits any pick-up owner. For one, it enhances the look of any pick-up. Most pick-ups do so much heavy duty work and off-road applications, and it's easy to look battered and dirty. However, making it look refined and still gleaming is possible if you cover it at the back with the Extang Tonneau. Of course, more than the looks, function is what the Extang Tonneau perfectly delivers. It puts the lid on the luggage, tools, groceries, sports equipment, gears and everything else that you put on the truck bed. Since a pick-up's compartment is open, wind can drag away whatever is stacked at the back of the pick-up, even with a tonneau cover. Rain, snow, and excessive exposure to sunlight can damage the cargo as well and the tonneau cover ensures that the cargo is protected from the elements and bad weather. However, you have no problems with the Extang Tonneau as it was built especially to handle tough weather situations. Furthermore, the Extang Tonneau works as security for your cargo, preventing any would be thief from stealing any valuables while you're away from your truck.

As if all this is not enough, installing an Extang Tonneau has one other benefit that is not as obvious. The front of your truck is built as aerodynamic as it can be but when the wind reaches the open truck bed, it becomes trapped on the tailgate and causes a big drag. Pick up trucks consume a lot of gas because of their size but when you compute the extra gas mileage lost due to the drag, the cost of gas you pay for can really add up. Indeed, with the Extang Tonneau, you get much more than your money's worth. Installation is not a problem as each set of the Extang Tonneau comes complete with all the tools needed to finish the job. You don't have to drill new holes and damage your truck because it has clamps that let you install it in no time. You can even use the tie-down cleats at each clamp position to fasten ropes and attach hooks to secure the cargo and prevent it from moving around the truck bed. The locking rear tail rail further locks your baggage in, and releasing it is a snap with its one-finger release function.
