#1 of 122 Tonneau Cover Hard Folding from Chevrolet
Feb 20, 2002 (2:29 pm)
Anyone have the hard tonneau that is offered by Chevrolet? What do you think of it and how much are dealers charging? Are there any sources for OEM Chevrolet accessories with good prices on the internet?

when I was purchasing my s-10 the dealer offered me the cover for $569.00..to rich for my blood. I found a soft cover locally for $360. I am going that way.
#3 of 122 rhino Linings vs Line-X
Feb 21, 2002 (10:04 am)

#4 of 122 Spray-In vs. drop in liner
Feb 21, 2002 (10:40 am)
Had a spray in liner in my Nissan and now have a drop-in with my S-10. Both line-X and rhino are good, the rhino is usally applied a little thicker. Reason I chose the srayed liner on my Nissan was that I needed rust repaired and also had a lot of scratches to my rails and it was less expensive to have liner spayed than it was for paint. The biggest complaint with drop-in liners is that they wear away paint. Kind of wondering why I even worry about the way the inside of the bed looks? Planning on keeping the factory liner that came with crew cab.
The spray-in are said to be better because they hold loads better, will not crack, split or warp, and have a watertight seal to prevent rust and corrosion.
I have had good experience with both drop-in and spray-in liners, they are not worth the money in benifits that they offer, but they are worth the money to me because I like my trucks more with a bed liner.
#5 of 122 S10-Bug shields

I just got a new S10 and went to put a bug shield
on it and found out there aren't any predrilled holes?
Does anyone know of a clip on bug shield?
If you've put a bug shield on what name brand did
I couldn't be happier with my S10 so far.
#6 of 122 Clip on Bug Shield

I have used the GTO Sportguard wrap around bud shield on both my 2001 S-10 and my 95 Sonoma. I have been very happy with them.
#7 of 122 Line-X vs Rhino
Aug 04, 2002 (8:01 pm)
We chose the Rhino over the Line-X, purely because the Rhino was rubberized. The Line-X is much like a bed liner as when you put something in the back it tends to slide all around. However, the Rhino Liner has a rubberized coating so when things are put in the back they stay put. I've had no regrets with the Rhino Liner verses a bed liner. Assuming the reason you would choose a bed liner is because it is removable, why would I be removing my bed liner?
#8 of 122 "Recovery Tow Hooks"
Aug 17, 2002 (6:18 pm)
Does anyone know if these can be installed on an S-10 that's not 4WD? These are the loop hooks that fit in the front bumper area. The one young dealer service guy I asked didn't think so. The parts guy couldn't find a number for them. When I messed around on the Chevy site before I got my truck, it looked like they were an option.
#9 of 122 Rhino liner Rules!
Sep 19, 2002 (9:34 am)
My fiance has a Rhino liner in his Z-71 and he says there is no better liner. He is in the collision repair business and knows this sort of thing inside and out. The Rhino liner is much more thick than other spray-in liners and therefore tougher. Far as the liners which are removeable, they scratch up the paint. Lift up one at the tailgate. See scratches?
I just purchased my very first truck yesterday! It's a 1999 S-10 4X4 V-6 vortec extended cab! We will be replacing the current bedliner with the Rhino soon! I am glad to join you!
#10 of 122 Tonneau covers
Oct 26, 2002 (4:12 pm)
I know a question was already posted about this before, but has anyone bought the hard, locking tonneau cover from GM? I have an S-10 crew cab with the tiny pick up bed. The only info about it I've found is in the S-10 brochure from the dealership. All I know is that a picture shows that it is foldable, consisting of 4 sections.
Has anyone had any experiences with it, good or bad? Is it hard to remove if the need arises? Has anyone used any of the other snapless covers like those roll-n-lock type covers or the Access cover with the ribs built into the cover?
