As the lines continue to blur between “weekend rig” and “daily driver,” products like UnderCover’s Ridgelander don’t just rise in popularity, they rise in necessity. If that truck is going to stand up to the demands of a 9-5 grind and still perform on hunting trips, outdoor excursions, and off-road adventures then it needs something more than a traditional tonneau cover.
But organizing and protecting the space inside in a pickup bed isn’t gonna cut it. You need more. Something versatile, that can optimize your carrying capacity with or without the cover. Something durable, to endure the elements and your active lifestyle. Lucky for you, the Ridgelander stands at-the-ready with its completely customizable design and heavy-duty construction.
Since we’ve touted this “go anywhere, do anything truck bed cover” before, we wanted to do a follow-up on the variety of accessories and kits offered by UnderCover. From traditional baskets and trays to unique kayak haulers and dome awnings, UnderCover’s got an accessory for your needs—no matter what your pastime of choice is. And since the Ridgelander plays so well with other aftermarket products, including accessories from Yakima, Thule, and Rhino Rack, the possibilities for your gear are just about endless.
But first, what makes the Ridgelander so special?
Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum and designed to withstand 250-lbs of cargo, the Ridgelander is the ultimate truck bed cover on the market. This is because it is so much more than a traditional tonneau cover. The Ridgelander features a unique built-in Tango Track System that sits on top of the bed cover to allow for easy mounting of bulky cargo. This virtually doubles your truck bed’s carrying capacity, all while keeping the trailer hitch free to pull more toys. Its no-drill installation makes it easy to set up and easy to remove; although with such a useful, sturdy, and weather-resistant design we doubt you’ll be taking it off anytime soon.
Best yet, the Ridgelander is manufactured in the USA and is covered by a competitive 3-year warranty from UnderCover.
While UnderCover offers a variety of accessory upgrades, like super tough UV-treated luggage bags, handy combo brackets to store Hi-lift jacks and shovels, and clever quick-mounting bike carriers, the company also simplifies the shopping experience by offering thoughtfully packaged, well-priced accessory kits.
Customers can choose from four combo kits, designed with enthusiast lifestyles in mind.
UnderCover addresses both the essentials and the conveniences with its Ridgelander Camping Accessory Kit. A large XTray made of powder-coated steel mounts directly to the RidgeLander Vortex Bars, providing versatile and stylish extra space on top of the cover. This allows you to keep your delicate gear out of the elements and tucked safely under the tonneau.
A 71” Cable Core Lockdown, made of plastic-sheathed steel intertwined cords safely secures items on the XTray. And the crowning jewel, a rip-stop polycotton Sunseeker Dome Awning provides a handy shade awning that pops up when the cover is open and stores in a discreet canvas pouch mounted to the back of the Ridgelander cover.
For those looking to ditch the campground and get further off the grid, the Ridgelander Overland Accessory Kit maximizes cargo storage capabilities. A 58” x 46” Pioneer Platform Tray makes storing and loading gear a breeze, leaving space under the tonneau for the items you wish to keep out of the elements.
Its versatile surface plays friendly with other accessories, and the kit-included Pioneer Eye Bolts and Sportz Ratchet Grabs will ensure no-hassle attachment. Also included are combo brackets and a shovel holder, so you can store your essential Hi-lift jack and tools outside the bed, saving space and clean-up.
Outdoor adventurers will love the RidgeLander Fish or Ski Accessory Kit. The large XTray provides safe and sturdy cargo storage above-bed, while the lockable Ski/Snowboard Carrier holds up to four pairs of skis, two snowboards, or multiple fishing rods.
Perfect for those weekend fishing trips and snow-bound holidays.
Cyclists in search of that deep woods trail or travelers who like to haul their two-wheels on the 4×4, the Ridgelander Biking Accessory Kit provides unique tonneau-top bike mounting.
The large XTray offers versatile storage for accessories and safety gear, while the multiple-locking Hybrid Bike Carrier ensures safe and secure transport for a range of bike styles.
