A Project Desert Dragger Update

Lance MartzDec 13, 2002
There are typically two classifications for mini-trucks besides their brand name: open bed and closed bed. The only difference between the two is the existence or absence of a pickup shell on the bed area. Those trucks that run bedcovers, also known as tonneau covers, are classified in the category called open bed.
To get our SEMA-bound project truck closer to being ready for the show, we pulled off the factory bedcover that wouldn't work with a shaved tailgate and installed a flush-mounted fiberglass bedcover from Checker Products in Benton, Kentucky.
In only about 15-20 minutes with basic tools, we had a trim, awesome-fitting bedcover on the truck. We were then ready to get the truck to its next destination for bodywork and paint.
