Tray Covers and Cargo Management

Postby *Phoenix* » July 18th, 2010, 3:11 pm

So many different products out there like "Roll N Lock & JackRabbit Etc" but we dont know enough... What are the Pros and Cons with them....

"To many of us have been victims of a shattered window because some bandit likes what he saw on the back seat or on the floor." :evil:

"Too many times we have to pack the groceries on the back seat because its gonna rain."


So I propose we use this thread to discuss and analyse the different products available and perhaps help others make an informed decision when buying a Tray cover or getting some sort of cargo management system for their Pick-up.

:wink:

INFO on all products and Systems are welcomed...

dont forget fiberglass alternative - the Jackrabbit have a drainage system builtin to prevent water from entering the main tray area - you might still get water seepage along the edges of it. The Fiberglass one supposed to be completely sealed - nice thing about these two options is that when it is locked - the tray is locked too.

we've been in this business for the last 3 years, the jackrabbit is the best tray cover on the market in terms of security, durability and style .
see the following link : http://www.pace-edwards.com/images/PE_P ... 1_Only.pdf

the fiberglass covers looks great, but alot of problems and your limited to cargo space .

Good thread *phoenix

I've been to 4x4trinidad's showroom to check out the Jackrabbit cover by Pace Edwards. It looks pretty sturdy and rugged, and comes with a 3-year warranty. It supposedly can hold up to 90lbs weight on top of it (eg. a small child crawling on it) while closed too.

The advantage the Jackrabbit has over the Roll N'Lock is the Jackrabbit comes with an actuator that also closed & locks the tailgate along with the cover. The roll n' lock only locks the rolling cover - your tailgate remains unlocked. So the Jackrabbit has a bit of an edge in security.

Once I get my truck I'll probably get the Jackrabbit installed. It works with Rollbars installed, as well as with bedliners - both plastic and spray-on types. There aren't any holes to drill and there's no body modification. Looks like a pretty good buy, though it's a bit pricey it's still worth the money.

Good info there...
I never know that the Roll N Lock doesn't lock the tailgate. Yikes...

Can someone lay down some expected prices on either one..

Also 3 years warranty with the JackRabbit huh... Biggy told me that the Roll N Lock is covered by a lifetime warranty. Perhaps someone can offer some more info.

4x4trinidad sells the Jackrabbit for $9000 installed, w/3yr warranty.

Takes about 2 hours total to install.

They also do the Scorpion bedlining, can't remember how much.
Shaw's does the rough-surface Durabak liner for $3200.

There's a guy in Morvant who sells Roll N' Lock - asked a dude in long circular with a ranger equipped with a R&L and he said he got it from Morvant.

No other info unfortunately :(

Thats good news 4x4trinidad.
So we can be certain that you have first hand information on the two systems...
So what would your reviews on either one be?

Can you give us the current cost on both also?

O RLY? :?

the RNL locks INTO the tailgate in not 1 but 2 places. therefore, even if you unlatch your tailgate via the handle, you CANNOT lower the tailgate cos it is STILL ATTACHED TO THE RNL

Jason 683-1101 and it's approx $12 000. I tried bringing in one from the USA but wasn't allowed to buy direct, had to buy it through the local dealer (Jason).

Couldn't afford that (nor justify the cost) .... ended up pay $1400 (Jamal - Cipero St.) and putting on one of those regular button down leatherette cover. Jamal did a pretty good job.

That's Roller Up (cheaper version of Roll N Lock) - Kazim sells this, he works N&M and has a place on Fernandes Compound if I remembered correctly.

Yes but remember the Jackrabbit come with an actuator to lock both the Cover + the tray tailgate.

Worth the $$, IMO.

Good thread. However to avoid info being lost I suggest that Mr. Phoenix compilate the information at the end and summarize.

Hey guys don't forget that the tray has a slot where you can fit a 2x4 plank and thus section off your tray.
Our frontier has the slot located close to the tail-gate, and a 2x4 plank would section it off 3:1 with the short-section close to the tailgate.

This would be handy if I had a tonneau cover and just had to open the tail-gate only to put groceries into the tray. The 2x4 plank would leave me with a nice small area just big enough for groceries.

^^ Right, so then can you open the tailgate when the RNL cover is extended & locked? How will you load stuff like groceries, cargo, dead-bodies, etc. into the tray then? :) :) You'd have to unlock the RNL, roll it up half-way and then you'd have access to the tailgate, right?

The Jackrabbit does have a lock for both the cover & tailgate, but I'm pretty sure it lets you open the tailgate even when the cover is extended & locked. If the RNL does this too and I was mistaken in my proclamation, then whoops to me :( :roll: :roll:


Perhaps 4x4trinidad can clarify this?
