Diesel Tech Roundup

Put It To Bed

Published in the July 2018 Issue July 2018 Products

 We all buy trucks so we can carry stuff in the bed of the truck. However, sometimes the stuff we carry is stuff we want to keep safe and secure. So it’s nice to be able to cover up our stuff, and cover up our truck bed. This month Diesel Tech has put together some popular and practical ways to keep your stuff secure.

 ArmorFlex Truck Bed Cover

UnderCover has released its most rugged cover yet—the ArmorFlex. The ArmorFlex is a hard, tri-folding cover that features heavy-duty aluminum panels with an innovative Line-X specialty-automotive coating, providing superior dent, scuff, ding and UV protection. Made in the USA, the ArmorFlex has automatic latching panels ensuring ultimate protection against the harshest environments, and a dual-action tailgate seal, making opening and closing the tailgate an option with the last panel of the cover up or down. The ArmorFlex’s low-profile design and stylish matte black appearance enhance the look of a truck, providing a finished appearance. The UnderCover ArmorFlex is backed by a limited five-year warranty.
