1. Lay out all of your parts and organize them

2. Take the rail that will go along the front of the bed near the cab and remove on of the ends. The rails should be clearly labeled as to where they go.

3. Take the cover and slide the appropriate end that is supposed to be at the front of the bed into the groove (sorry about this crappy pic :()

4. Put the cap back on that you removed. This is what you should have now.

5. Put the rest of the frame together. Each end should clip into the other

6. Place the frame up on the bed. NOTE: It's MUCH easier if you have a second person to help with this step.

7. The sides of the frame will be labeled with where the clamps should go. Place the clamps into the groves of the rail

8. Take the screws and screw in the other part of the clamp. This will secure the clamp to the bed

You can use this tool or another Allen wrench to tight this down.

9. For the long bed you will have 4 clamps per side. DO NOT tighten them down until all 8 clamps are in place and the frame is where you want it to be.

10. Once everything is tighetened down it's time to put in the cross rails. These, too, will be labeled with where they should go. One is in spring loaded so press this end in first...

...then place the other end in...

...for a long bed you will have 4 of these cross rails.

11. Once all the cross rails are in go ahead and fasten the cover down and here is what you'll get

Looks like quality built parts for that kit.

I am a little confused about the front rail that attaches to the cover first. Does that mean the cover is on there permanent and you just roll it up behind the cab and Velro it up?

Also is there anything between the frame and the bed to protect the paint from getting scratched?

Yes the cover is on there "permanent" until you go to disassemble the unit which can be done in about 15 minutes. You can take the whole thing off and put it back in it's box if you wanted very quickly. I'll try and take better close up pics of that part for ya http://northporttroller.b1.jcink.com/smile.gif

There is foam underneath each rail of the frame so that the aluminum is not directly on the bed of the truck. obviously, my bed liner goes over the rail so I was not worry about that anyway but it is there for those that don't have that. It serves a couple of purpose. It's suppose to be a seal to help prevent water from getting in as well as acting a protectant between the bed and the aluminum rails.
