DiamondBack Cover Comparison
Regret Buying a DiamondBack Cover?
If you’ve already bought a DiamondBack Cover, we’re sorry. Mistakes have been made. It’s not that it’s a bad cover, it’s just that there’s a better one out there. Ready for the DiamondBack cover comparison?
What do DiamondBack and Renegade Covers have in Common?
When you’re shopping for a new truck bed cover, it can be an overwhelming experience. Obviously everyone thinks their own cover is best, but let’s face it, someone is lying to themselves. Surely there is one that rises above the rest.
Rather than comparing all the covers out there, we’ve decided to take a simple approach and compare just DiamondBack and Renegade: two American-made, heavy-duty, high weight-bearing truck bed covers.
The basic facts are as follows. Renegade can bear 2,000 pounds, while DiamondBack can only hold 1,600lbs. The former is made of military-grade aluminum, and the latter is made from a strong yet mysterious aluminum alloy. Both covers are weather-tight, so there’s no worries there. Both covers also work with a variety of accessories, including racks, bars, headache racks, and more.
How are DiamondBack and Renegade Covers Different?
This brings us to functionality, which is where the two covers set themselves apart. To begin with, DiamondBack Covers feature permanent tie-down cleats, which are reminiscent of tying a boat to a dock. Renegade Covers, on the other hand, have the unique L-track system which allows for limitless tie-down points thanks to quick-release anchors (which are much more secure).
Plus, DiamondBack’s rugged deadbolt locks across the surface of the cover may look cool, but it limits your ability to evenly place or slide items on top (like you can on a Renegade). That’s also one more key for you to misplace, which is annoying when compared to Renegade’s keyless design.
What’s more, the Renegade Cover is a tri-fold cover that can even be open when driving (without blocking your rearview). This means you can tow a 5th Wheel without removing your Renegade Cover, open just the tailgate in a storm, and so much more. DiamondBack’s trunk-style design doesn’t just limit its functionality, it exposes whatever you’re stowing underneath to the elements.
Which is better: DiamondBack Cover or Renegade Cover?
This is just a start of the DiamondBack cover comparison and differences between these two truck bed covers. But at the end of the day, all we want is for you to be thrilled with your new truck bed cover. If that’s going to be DiamondBack, then that’s great! But we made the Renegade Cover because we weren’t satisfied with any of the other options on the market, and you shouldn’t be either.
