Protect your pickup’s bed in style with the UnderCover® Elite LX Tonneau Cover—a high-end one-piece bed cover offering a sleek paint-matched aesthetic, durable composite construction, and various accessories to warrant the premium price tag.

The UnderCover Elite LX Tonneau Cover offers all the features of the company’s traditional Elite truck bed cover, including durable ABS composite construction, an integrated lock mechanism for added security, and unmatched styling. Where the LX differs is its premium options, including a color-matched, automotive-grade paint job and a soft-touch carpet headliner.

With its robust ABS construction, the UnderCover Elite LX is far lighter than comparable fiberglass tonneau covers. While ABS doesn’t typically have the load-bearing strength of fiberglass, UnderCover solves this problem with its patented X-Effect infrastructure, which utilizes molded X-pattern bracing on the underside of the cover to improve rigidity and overall strength.

This tonneau cover comes painted in your vehicle’s exact color code, ensuring a flawless match to the existing body panels. UnderCover’s state-of-the-art painting facility handles all paint-matching in-house, offering a durable, factory-grade finish.

The UnderCover Elite LX Tonneau Cover is highly theft-resistant and weather-resistant, safeguarding your cargo in every situation. Whether caught in a rainstorm or the presence of would-be thieves, the cover’s EPDM rubber double bulb seals and key-locking latch keep your cargo safe and sound.

With a name like “Elite,” UnderCover fitted this tonneau cover with several unique features and accessories. UnderCover finishes the underside of every Elite LX with a premium carpet liner, reminiscent of your pickup’s interior headliner! The Elite LX also features an integrated cargo lanyard to reach items near the bulkhead and a removable LED cargo light, illuminating your pickup’s bed.

This product offers a simple no-drill installation, mounting to your pickup’s bed using the included clamps and vehicle-specific hardware. UnderCover also includes sturdy wall mounts, allowing you to hang to cover in your garage, shop, or shed. Operation is just as effortless—simply insert and twist the key, turn the integrated thumb lock, and rotate the handle for an effortless one-handed operation.
