Ford Ranger Tonneau Cover

How Do You Maintain Your Ford Ranger Tonneau Cover

The Ford Ranger has been the Blue Oval's compact pick-up truck for years now. And much like the bigger Ford truck models, its utility has been widely appreciated all around the world. Its bed allows you to carry different kinds of equipment and load. However, you will soon realize that your truck could use an extra protection for the things placed on the bed. This is where the Ford Ranger tonneau cover comes to play. The panel protects the inside of the bed from the elements without affecting the form of the truck that owners love. While it may not be as spacious as a camper shell, the tonneau cover is still a practical accessory that can be used for protection and aesthetic purposes. Here are a few tips on how to maintain your Ford Ranger tonneau cover.

  • Regularly look after the mounts and sealants, and address related issues.

Since your Ford Ranger tonneau cover is an aftermarket accessory, it has been designed to be mounted by drilling holes and using bolts to hold it. Likewise, sealant is used to prevent particles from going through the spaces in between the bed liner and tonneau cover. You might want to check if these areas still hold up. Retighten the bolts and add a new layer of sealant if needed.

  • Wash your tonneau cover to rinse off dirt and loose particles.

When you drive out wherever, dust and other particles come in contact with your Ford Ranger. This is an inevitable situation. However, you can get rid of that light layer on your tonneau cover by spraying water on it. The pressure and the flow should be enough to shake off the loose materials from the surface. Don't forget to dry it after rinsing.

  • Scrub the surface of your tonneau cover to get rid of stubborn dirt.

If you can't get rid of the dirt by just water alone, you should do some scrubbing. Get your favorite sponge or wash mitt and soak it in your car shampoo solution. Wring the excess liquid before you begin scrubbing. As you go about the tonneau, gently give it a scrub to clean the entire surface.

  • Tips on Installing the Ford Ranger Tonneau Cover

    Welcome. You have been assimilated into the circle of Ford Ranger owners. One of the benefits of owning this compact American truck is having an efficient mover of your stuff. Its bed is big enough to carry your equipment while its smaller engine provides ample power without the V8 kind of thirst. However, we believe that adding aftermarket accessories can also help you carry out your duties with your truck. If you have decided to invest in parts like the Ford Ranger tonneau cover, then you should have an idea how to mount it to your Ford truck. Here are some tips on installing the Ford Ranger tonneau cover.

    Tip #1: Note the different tasks that you require of your truck.

    There are different types of tonneau covers: the folding, roll type, and the one with the hinge. Take note of these types and try to match each type with the tasks you will be subjecting your Ford Ranger into. By matching them together, you will be able to maximize the features of the tonneau cover. If you accomplish that, you can say you got the right bang for your buck.

    Tip #2: Check for the compatibility of the tonneau cover and your truck.

    Your aim should be to pick from a roster of tonneau covers that are compatible to your truck. This will allow you to fit the tonneau cover snuggly over your bed. Once the cover properly fits the dimensions of your bed, there will be no existing gaps. Therefore, the contents of your truck's bed should remain dry when the rain begins to set in.

    Tip #3: Consult the manual for recommended mounting points and other requirements.

    Always read the manual before pulling off an installation job. No matter how confident you are with your DIY skills, don't leave out this piece of literature. The manual is your best friend. This usually contains an inventory list, guide, and some dos and don'ts.

    Tip #4: Do a test fit of the tonneau cover before you begin drilling holes on your truck.

    Installing a tonneau cover might require you to drill a few holes to secure it in place on the bed of your truck. Before you do so, do a test fit on your bed and take careful measurements.
