I purchased a Revolver X2 online from tonneaucovers.com for my 2016 Tundra CM with the factory rail system.




FIT: 9/10

The cover fits great the sides are even & secure & the tailgate portion is perfect. It hard to get it 100% square because you have to roll the cover up after alignment. A second pair of hands would be helpful here.

INSTALLATION: 10/10

The cover is super easy to install. In fact having the factory rail system makes the install even better. Instead of 3 clamps, you replace the rail system with 5 new brackets that hold the cover rails and lower the factory rails. IMHO this is a much more legit install vs. the 3 clamps.

One problem I had, was one of the T30 bolts on the factory rail system was stripped. It took a bolt extractor to remove it.

Install took about 2 hours (with 1 hour spent on that stripped bolt)

USABILITY: 9/10
Super easy to use, but when new and cold the cover doesn't want to roll as tight as it could.

LOOKS: 10/10
Love the look of the vinyl cover, flush mount!

SECURITY: 10/10
Security looks to be very strong, you would have to destroy the cover and even then I'm not sure you would get what you want.

WATERPROOF: Pending
It's only 11F here, I have not a chance to test and really know what level of waterproofing was achieved. Seals look good, coverage looks good.

Here's a close up of the bracket that goes into the factory rail mounting hole. Revolver rail connects above and factory rail connects below. Strap connects inside the factory rail.

I try to get a wider angle shot tomorrow.

That's a good looking cover. I have been thinking about getting one. When it's rolled up, how far does it stick out from the front bed wall? The reason I ask is I use bicycle mounts in the front deck rail, and I'm wondering if I'd have to find a different setup.

Hey how's the cover in the rain? I live in the NE and have to deal with rain, snow ice half the year. My Encore has held up well but I'm getting a 2016 tundra crewmax and looking for a new cover since I currently have a double cab.

Looks great! How much does it lower the OEM rails? Do you think the rails are to low to use the OEM cargo divider?

I am looking at getting this for my new F-150. I've had the G2 and Fibermax and liked them but they have always leaked, at least a little. My coworker just got one for his F-150 I am curious to see if he has any leaks. I think the design in theory should mean less chance for leaks.

Just an FYI it doesn't leak in rain. I've had mine on for almost a month now. Through a power wash it leaked very minimally, not enough to get anything inside of the bed wet, but there was a little water near the tailgate. When you lock your tailgate, there is no way someone is getting in this cover without completely destroying the cover. There is no Velcro and it actually locks all the way down the rail (which most covers do not). I found a place online that sells these for quite a bit less than $800. If you're interested shoot me a pm and I'll send you guys their info. Several others have ordered from them as well. I get no kickbacks or anything else. Actually found them on another forum when I was looking for my cover at the lowest price possible.

Installed one of these yesterday - here's my pro tip.

Make sure you have the same amount of space at the end of each rail against the tailgate - mine was approximately 1/2" away from the edge. I spent about an hour messing with the cover to get it to roll square and land on the edge of the tailgate but still be able to lock.

Here is a picture



see where the black plastic on the rail is about 1/2" back from the edge of the truck plastic? That was the result of me moving the rail three times, which requires it all to be unscrewed.

Hope this helps someone in the future.

I've only had mine a month but I am happy with it. No cutting or drilling, no real leaks, if you follow my instructions on the post up there the install should be much smoother than I went through.

The only con I have is that it gets SUPER hot in the sun and that its a bit bulky when rolled up against the window for the view behind.

Otherwise i highly recommend!

Thanks. yeah it looks bulky, but definitely better than full covering fold up ones. time will tell I guess :) Can you roll it from the back to front for rear access?
