Q: When did Extang open for business?

Extang began manufacturing tonneaus in 1982.

Q: Where are Extang covers made?

All Extang covers are made in the USAâ?¦. manufactured at our Ann Arbor, Michigan facility.

Q: Are all tonneau covers made in the USA?

No, quite a few companies produce their covers in China, and some of the US companies use foreign made components.

Q: Can I order products directly from Extang?

You may purchase direct from Extang, however we maintain a slightly higher price to support the dealers/resellers selling our product. We prefer to refer you to their doors. Extang products are mostly sold through our resellers within your local area. Click here to find one near you.

Q: How can I be assured that I am buying a quality product?

Extang supports all of our products, 100%, with the industryâ??s strongest warranty: the Maximum Strength Warranty. In addition, we are a certified ISO9001:2008 facility for quality standards.

Q: Will a tonneau cover improve my gas mileage?

Installing a tonneau cover to your vehicle will help reduce aerodynamic drag and therefore improve MPG. Industry testing has shown gas mileage improvements of up to 10%, which means that Extang tonneau covers essentially pay for themselves!

Q: I have an older truck and I don't see the year in the application guide. Can I still get an Extang cover for my truck?

We are not currently producing any custom tonneau covers. Please call us to inquire about future availability of your application.

Q: How can I locate the part number of my tonneau?

The part number is typically 10-11 digits, stamped along the underside of the cover, typically located at the driver side cab corner.

Q: Can I still open my tailgate with an Extang tonneau on my truck?

Yes, Extang tonneau covers do not restrict the tailgate in any way.

Q: How far above or below the rail does the tonneau sit?

Most Extang tonneaus sit about an inch above the rail.

Q: How do I care for my vinyl tonneau cover?

Extang recommends that our vinyl tarps be cleaned with a mild soap, water and a medium bristle brush. If you choose to use a vinyl conditioner, be sure to use our TONNO TONIC�. Many other vinyl conditioners (such as Armor All®) contain chemicals that can actually damage your tarp. TONNO TONIC� bonds molecularly to your Extang Tonno to give it that brand new look day after day. TONNO TONICTM will not attract dust nor will it coat or seal your cover. TONNO TONICTM allows your tonno to breathe naturally, while enhancing the appearance and providing additional UV protection.

Q: Can I drive through a car wash with an Extang tonneau cover installed?

Yes, automatic car washes are safe, however you will not want to select any type of wax treatment as the ingredients within the wax treatment could potentially harm the finish built into the cover.

Q: How do I care for my Signature Series tonneau?

We recommend RaggTop made by Wolfsteinâ??s Pro Series to treat the Signature Series material.

Q: How do I care for my hard trifold?

Extang recommends that our hard folding covers be cleaned with soap, water and a medium bristle brush. You may use a product like Meguire's Quick Detailer to protect and preserve the finish of your tonneau without streaking.

Q: If I am missing a part for my tonneau cover, what do I do?

If you were missing parts when you received your cover, call Extang immediately, please do not return product to the retailer. Our Customer Service Department will be able to assist you in an expedient manner.

We can accept an order over the phone using any major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Amex or Discover) or you can send in a check or money order prior to placing your order.

Q: What are the costs of replacement parts (snaps, corners, etc.)?

Q: When can I contact Extang customer service with my questions?

Our customer service team is available Monday - Friday, 8:30 to 5:00 Eastern Time at 1-800-877-2588 or you may email us at anytime.

Q: Are your covers waterproof?

There aren't any tonneau covers on the market today that are 100% waterproof. We consider our covers weather tight and use application specific rubber seals to create superior sealing against water and dust. Our tonneaus are built to be weather tight against normal rain and car washing situations.

Q: I don't have my installation sheet, how can I get one?

To obtain an installation sheet, click here or contact Extang Customer Service. In order to provide the correct installation instructions for your needs, our team will need to know the style of tonneau you have, as well as your truck's year, make and model. The installation instructions can be faxed, emailed, or mailed to you directly. Customer Service can be reached at (800) 877-2588, or click here to send an email request.

Q: Are Extang tonneau covers difficult to install?

No, the average installation for a retail customer usually takes 30 to 40 minutes or less (professional installation will take 10-15 minutes). No drilling or tools are required except for an Allen wrench on some applications or a ½ inch socket wrench on Encore. Anything you will need to perform the installation is included in the box.

Q: How do Extang tonneau covers attach to the truck?

All Extang tonneaus are no damage, no drilling, clamp-on, top mount designs. There are clamps along each side of the tonneau, which grab the lip of your truck bed. Our clamps and rails are produced with seals along the parameter of the rail, so there is no metal-to-metal contact. Completely padded so that there is no damage to the truck.

Q: Do Extang tonneaus work with bedliners?

Yes, however there are a few additional steps needed to make our tonneaus compatible with them. If you have an under-the-rail liner, you may need small rubber shims to help lift our tonneau cover over your tailgate protector. If you have an over- the-rail bedliner, you will need to notch your bed liner so our clamps can go through the liner and wrap around the lip of your truck bed. Detailed instructions are included with every kit.
