Model Y Performance. Diesel JT hopefully soon
Can this be fixed half way between bed/extension ie above the bed if need be? I occasionally scoop up panels as the shop and for me to carry them properly they need to lay flat like plywood

I’ve propped it up then slid stuff under and then put it down either in or extended. Hope that helps.

Jumped on one with the BF sale as well.
@ACE Engineering
Can you share instructions for install?
Also please confirm what sized nutsert/rivet tool mandrel we need for the included nutserts.
Thanks.

Finally got mine installed, had to order the 33/64 drill bit. Not too hard but definitely a measure thrice drill once. Moving up in bit size gradually helps.

One KEY note, for those with BAK X4 hard rolling tonneau cover, this won't work for you very well, and I wouldn't recommend getting it. The issue is that the bed cover has locking latches that stick out in towards the bed at the tailgate to actuate the locking mechanism when you roll the cover out flat. They stick in far enough that you can't flip this thing on the hinge, instead having to remove it to flip it. I'm going to see if I can either get the custom made so that they fold out of the way, or move up my timeline for going with a topper instead of tonneau cover which is why I still went ahead with the install. Here are some pics showing it installed as well as the problem I described.

Too bad the price was increased nearly $100 from when it launched. $472 is just way too much for me right now...
Completely agree. Price goes up $100 In a few months. Just in time for Black Friday. I’m calling bullshit.

Give me 25% off the original price of $375 from only 4 months ago, I’ll buy it right now. Otherwise, no thanks.

When I got mine, the launch price was 375 and that was at a discount. Oh well, you get what you pay for.
