For the fiberglass lid I recommend snugtop. I think they look the best on
Ford trucks.
You can look at them at there web site

www.snugtop.com

Thanks

Don,

I have been eyeing a fiberglass tonneau cover called the "Trader Top" in
Trader Trucking's catalog. Malibu Sport Truck is selling the same top
under the Stockland name. The cost is $620 for short bed F150, an extra
$80 for headliner, and $100 to ship (From Malibu Sport Truck). Stockland,
the manufacturer, is sending me there pricing in the mail. Here is the
text describing the tonneau straight from Stockland's website
www.stockland.com:
"Our fiberglass Tonneau cover is the newest addition to our
family of products. This low profile design and trimless
finished edge gives a clean close fit to the bed of your
truck for a sleek automotive appearance. Our state of the
art "quick mount system" with hidden hinge allows for easy
installation and removal. We use only heavy duty gas
props for durability, ease of operation and total
accessibility to your cargo. Dual stainless steel automotive
style locks offer the ultimate in security and protection for
your valuable tools and equipment. For strength we use a
unibody fiberglass composite construction utalizing a 1"
honeycomb with reinforcement in all stress areas. A triple
weather tight sealing system protects your cargo and an
automotive polyurethane basecoat-clearcoat paint finish
tops off this outstanding product. For the consumers
peace of mind the Stockland Tonneau cover carries a
lifetime warranty on structure and paint surface."

The top has a great look. You can see pictures on there website or in the
latest Malibu Sport Truck ad in Sport Truck or Truckin' magazine. I hope
this info helps. Let me know what you find.

You want the white wire with the pink stripe found in the
large wiring harness going thru the firewall near the pedals.
The shop manual shows this wire going to a connector on the back of the
instrument panel, still being a white wire with pink stripe. I haven't
added my tach yet so I can't tell you how hard it is to locate.
