Preparing to Install your Truck Bed Cover

The most important consideration before you install your Renegade Cover on your RAM is if it’s a 2015 or newer. If you have a 2014 or older model, the install instructions for RAM may be slightly different and it’s important to reach out to our team for additional information. Otherwise, carry on. 

In general, when installing a Renegade Cover, you’ll want to have the following on hand:

  • Measuring Tape
  • Box Cutter Knife
  • Ratchet
  • 3/4” Open End Socket Wrench
  • Another 3/4” Open End Socket Wrench, or a Crescent Wrench
  • Work Light
  • Blue Loctite

In addition to the above, to install the Renegade Cover on your RAM Truck, you’ll also need the following tools: 

  • 1⁄2” Socket Wrench
  • 1⁄2” Deep Socket Wrench
  • 3⁄4” Open End Wrench
  • 1/8” Allen Wrench
  • Needle nose pliers

With the right tools gathered, it’s important to next familiarize yourself with the different parts of the Renegade Cover, like the Slide Latch, Spring Plunger, and Latch Post. The best way to do this is reading through all the instructions once, before beginning any work. While this is a lot to ask, it’s worth it in the long run, we promise. 

Maintaining your Renegade Cover 

Fast-forward to when you’re Renegade Cover is installed and you’re caught up enjoying all its perks. Make a mental note now that it’s important to care for it regularly, just like your beloved RAM truck. 

For example, if you start to notice the bed liner coating is fading, use a roller to roll on Armor-All protectant to make it look like new! Also, if the Slide Latches begin to increase in resistance, it’s probably just time to spray garage door lubricant into all of the openings inside the Latch and cycle the Latch. This may simply be a part of your annual maintenance, but if you’re often in dusty or dirty conditions it’s a good idea to do it more often.
