Bed Covers?

I have a 70 GMC LWB. I'm look for solid a bedcover, metal or fiberglass. Would also prefer a flush mount cover.

I've seen a few trucks here that have what I'm looking for. But haven't found anyone selling a bed cover for my 70 GMC.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Eric

Re: Bed Covers?

Not sure about a flush cover. There may be someone making one now, but you may have been seeing pictures of Checkmate covers that are no longer being made.

Re: Bed Covers?

I got rid of this cover 2 years ago. It's a Gaylord Lid. It was very well made, It just wasn't my style.

Nice truck!

That's pretty much what I'm looking for. Just a few questions.

Did Gaylords do the color matching paint?

How far over the bed does the cover's lip extend?

Thanks
Eric

It was already on the truck when I got it so I don't know about the paint.
It's a very snug fit all the way around. Enough where it rubbed a little of the paint off the bed corners.

I have a Gaylord too, let me know what details you want. It came in primer and body shop matched to the body.

Re: Bed Covers?

I had a Checkmate on my 52 for 15 years and I loved it. Great cover, great price. I hope someone picks up where they left off. My boss loves his Jackrabbit rollup and I'll admit it is handy:

Too pricey for my blood, I just ordered a Craftec with the Maxx vinyl and 2 extra bows to handle a snow load (had to ask for them). I can buy four for the price of one all metal roll up.

Re: Bed Covers?

Thanks everyone for the info. The Gaylord is looking very promising. I wish I had found this info sooner. My truck just got out of painting yesterday. It's been in body shop jail since last September.

Re: Bed Covers?

Here is link to the Gaylord website. They are one of the best out there and do color matching although they are pricey.

Thanks I found the website. Looked around on it, no pricing that I could find. That usually mean lots of $$$$s.

Mine was $1600 plus $150 shipping. Again, it came unpainted.

I got an email today from Charlie at Gaylord's. He quoted $1500 for a primed OG Series cover with $150 for shipping.

Thanks everyone for all the good information.
