There are so many reasons to get an aftermarket hardcover for your Colorado truck. You can do it for the sake of creating a double compartment that allows you carry even more stuff, because you’re tired of water flooding the back of your truck when it rains or simply because you store items that need to be protected from the rain.
Whatever the reason, you’ll agree that having the market’s flooded with hard covers, so how do you decide which one to get. It’s not like they look all that distinctive from an amateur’s perspective anyways. We’re here to tell you that whatever you think of hard covers, there are some with better features that others, so learning how to pick a holden colorado hard cover is worth spending a few minutes of your time on.
Choosing a Holden Colorado Hard Cover
- Sportsbar: first, you need to decide whether you want a sportsbar on your cover or not. You’ll find a ton of hardcovers that come without, so it’s not always a mandatory feature even though it may seem like it. Note that hardcovers that come with sportsbars allow you open and close up the lid at different angles – say 40 degree angles. Meaning you would be able to pop it open like you would the trunk of a regular vehicle. You can always get an extra sportsbar installed even if you buy a lid without one. We’re just stating this so you know your options.
- Shutter/Roller Over: believe it or not, you don’t have to open ALL of the cover to access the storage space beneath the hard cover. Shutter lids give you the option of partially openning, which is helpful when you’ve stacked a ton of things on some part of the lid.
- Ease of Installation and maintenance: hard cover prices range from low end to ridiculously expensive for just lids. Regardless of what you spend, the last thing you want to do is have to take it for maintenance every single month. So if its a hardcover that needs to be oiled every now and then, check that it’s something you can do yourself.
