A client from Petersburg called our Midlothian location recently, looking to add a retractable bed cover and bed slide to his 2017 F-150 Crew Cab. He’d been doing quite a bit of research and was really sold on the Retrax Pro bed cover and Bed Slide 1000 series.
Retrax offers a line of bed covers that retract into a compartment near the front of the bed. Varying from polycarbonate material to aluminum, they offer a sleek look that fits the style of all varieties of trucks. He knew he was interested in the Pro series, which has the high-gloss aluminum slats, and was really torn between getting the power version that retracts on its own using a remote control or the manual version. After some time mulling it over, he decided manual would do the job, since he probably would not be opening it all that often, due to the bed slide.
BEDSLIDE is the brand name of, you guessed it, bed slides. The 1000 series BEDSLIDE is exactly what you’d think: a sliding tray system that allows you to load up to 1,000 lbs of items in the bed of your truck, and easily get to all of it without having to climb in and out of the truck. We added the GRK50 Rail Kit, which helps keep items from sliding off the side when going around curves. We also added a HALUMKIT, which re-enforces the aluminum bed of the F-150 when the bed slide is pulled all the way out. Check out the video below from BEDSLIDE for more details.
