If you have a truck, you probably have experienced getting the stuff in the bed wet when the rains came as you drove home from the grocery store. Or you're at a swap meet, and you're tired of carrying that Road Runner quarter-panel around. If you throw it in the back of your truck, and go back to the swap meet, sorry to say, your quarter-panel may be gone when you get back to the truck.

We know there are a plethora of different makers of tonneau covers, but when we saw the Roll*N* Lock unit, we were sold. Roll*N* Lock was established in 1992, and their product is one of the best built retractable tonneau covers in America. They have been building covers for older Dodge trucks for quite some time, and recently designed and built a system to cover the bed of '02-'05 Dodge Ram pickups. As with any retractable cover, the Roll*N*Lock is not completely water tight, but with proper installation, very little water will enter the bed.

So how do you get one of these covers, and what's involved for an installation? Check out their web site, www.rollnlock.com, for a list of available dealers, and read the rest of this article to find out how to install it. Hey, if goof-offs like us can do it, anyone can, so what are you waiting for, your stuff to get wet again?
