Diamondback-X HD Tonneau Cover

Just put the Diamondback-X HD on my truck. Took some pics to show a friend, figured I just post them up here.

I have the SE version. Do you have daylight above the weather stripping in the corners as I do. YOU have to compress the stripping to get a good seal in the corners.
How are you going to get a seal on the top of the tail gate when shut? Big gap there.

It seems to be touching all around when I look at it. The back panel does look like it's sitting too high, especially on the right side. The "gasket" is touching, but probably not compressed enough. Working today and off tomorrow, I'll try fine tune adjusting it tomorrow.

The pipes on the back are for ATV Ramps. They slip over the pipes. The ramps are 12 foot long and you can see them folded up in the bed in the earlier pictures.

Here's some more pics, but it's all dirty and covered in morning dew now. Had one of my ATVs up on top last night...

I have a 4x2 and a 4x4 ATV. The 4x2 is not easy to load, have to get a running start to get it up on top. The 4x4 can just put it in low range, and it'll climb up there, np.

Back Seal Pictures:





Front Seal Pictures (had to add the extra weather stripping included with the cover because wasn't a good seal before because sides of bed are higher than the front lip of bed):




Picture of the "gap" (that's not sealed):


I see what you mean from other thread about weather stripping not going to close that huge of a gap.

Looking at that pic, DiamondBack should have re-designed the rear section to be extended.
