Toyota Tacoma-Bad Cover Installation
Toyota Tacoma Bed Cover FAQ
Perform cleaning in a shady area so the detergent doesn’t dry out on the surface. You can remove the cover before cleaning or leave it on your vehicle.
1. Rinse your bed cover with water.
2. Make sure that the car washing solution you are going to use is safe for your type of bed cover and apply it to the surface. If not, you will have to use a specific cleaner (vinyl cleaner, tonneau cover cleaner, etc.).
3. You can use a microfiber cleaning cloth or brush with a long handle to clean up the cover. Spread the remedy over the surface from the center to the edges without applying excessive pressure.
4. Scrub the especially dirty areas particularly if necessary.
5. Once the cleaning is done, rinse the cover with water and leave it to dry.
To get the proper Toyota Tacoma bed cover, for example, or any bed cover, you must measure your truck bed and find out your truck style. There are four main types: side step, regular cab, extended cab, and 4-door crew cab. Next, you should measure the bed length. It’s determined by the distance between the inside of the rear door and the inside of the bulkhead. Don’t worry if you can’t find the cover length that matches the length of your truck bed: it rounds off to the nearest half-foot. This way, if your truck bed measures 76 inches, you should look for a 6.5-foot bed cover size.

My name is Brandon, and I’ve been interested in cars since I was a kid. I got a bachelor’s degree in Automotive Technology and worked in a private car workshop. I have two cars that have been completely upgraded with my own hands. So I successfully put all my knowledge into practice.
