Products from ATC that won’t break your bank or your back
There was a time when trucks were one size fits all—you got a big, empty bed, and it was used for whatever you required of your truck. But today’s rigs can be purpose-built for all types of uses, and you can bet there are components to build out that simple bed to accommodate all your needs. This is nothing new for the experts at ATC Truck Covers, who have been in the business of building fiberglass truck bed products for 20 years. ATC offers various cargo management bed systems and top-notch truck caps and lids to choose from, so we were happy to work with the company for our ’15 Ford F-150’s load/hauling necessities.
To handle the cargo management, we visited with the guys at County Toppers and Truck Accessories to choose the best option for our needs. They immediately steered us in the direction of ATC’s Load Master CP setup. The all-fiberglass composite deck is coated in a spray-on bedliner material that provides a strong platform to handle anything we plan to load into the truck.
We were searching for a high-end truck cap that provides ultimate protection from weather and intrusion, and the
ATC LEX cap fit the bill. The contoured crown flows into an aerodynamic design for great fuel savings and even better looks. A built-in LED brake light, large all-glass rear door, and convenient center lock make this cap a perfect complement to our F-150. Once the ATC products were in hand, we spent a few hours back at County Toppers in Olathe, Kansas, and soon our empty bed was built out to provide us with more than enough good-looking and secure storage.

2. Next, we removed both front bed tie-down mounts with a #T30 torque bit. 2.
