Hard Painted Tonneau Cover by UnderCover
Since trading for our new Ford F-150 Platinum EcoBoost, I've been trying to decide on a bed cover. Do you get the standard black or one that matches the paint color? These are the questions that try men's souls.
Painted or unpainted, UnderCover bed covers look great and do an excellent job of protecting items stored in the bed from the elements. They also allow truck owners to lock the cover and tailgate for trunk like storage. Both styles have the same LED lights and locks so the tough part of the decision is basically cost difference and how it looks on the truck.
On our Toyota Tundra, we opted for the black, unpainted cover and while it looked great with the dark graphite paint, I remained curious how the painted version might have looked.
The color of our new F-150 Platinum EcoBoost is Ingot Silver Metallic. It's a beautiful truck and the lighter silver looks fabulous with our shiny silver Airstream. While getting my first oil change in the F-150, I spoke with a most helpful lady in the Ford dealer Accesories Department and explained my color dilemma to her. She assured me they could have either one in 24 hours and made a strong case that the painted version would look best on a Platinum model F-150 pickup. I bit the bullet and ordered the Hard Painted Tonneau Cover by UnderCover in Ingot Silver Metallic to match the truck.
As promised, the Ford dealer called back the next day to schedule the installation appointment. The installation took about 45 minutes and the moment they pulled the truck out of the Accessories area I knew I had made the right decision. It's a keeper.
The Ingot Silver Metallic paint matches the F-150 perfectly and looks fantastic. The design of the Hard Painted Tonneau Cover by UnderCover mimics the lines and contours of the hood and top of the truck to give it a factory look. It also included a Ford logo on both sides at the front edge of the cover. Very nice touch, Ford. In short, it gives the already beautiful F-150 Platinum EcoBoost a more finished look.
Color me happy.
