Before buying the Ultra Truck Cap Seal I first checked with my local truck cap retailer for their input which was positive and then I had it put on by some pros who had done some other refurbishing work to my truck.
Prep work for a good final seal is most important. You must get all the old previous seal and adhesive cleaned off before applying the Ultra Seal. Your cap must come entirely off the bed and set aside to be properly worked on. This shop had their own particular hangers for that kind of work. For the home handyman you would want to use a couple of adjustable horses set up high enough to hang the cap on after removal from the bed. My Cap was a Leer, heavy enough that it took four guys to lift and remove it. So while it was on their hangers they had to lay on the ground to work on it. One problem they ran into was that the adhesive on the Ultra Seal wasn't strong enough to stick securely to the cap. It kept falling off from the cap to the extent that they removed it and re-enforced it all with double faced tape. Had the Cap been flipped upside-down onto a pad as some suggest, this lack of adhesion may not have been noticed, but would result in added frustration later on. On the corners they didn't attempt making any 45 degree cuts. But rather used their own sealer-gun to seal where the two pieces butted against each other.
One concern was that my truck had that black LINE-X sealer sprayed throughout the bed running partially over the rails. Since that is a rough crinkly material, one may not get the most positive seal as opposed to just the original smooth painted rails. Fortunately, in my case it didn't constitute any problem. The four clamps that fasten the Cap to the bed still seem to do the job, although the mechanics thought that perhaps another two would be better for compressing the Ultra Seal evenly all around. Since completing the job we've experienced a few heavy rainfalls and the Ultra Seal did the job of keeping my carpeted truck bed completely dry.
"I used it for my lift-off hard top on a street rod.It was easy to use and sealed my top to the body perfectly. Great product. "
I found the seal very easy to work with.
This product is much more substantial than the standard foam and seems to be very resilient. It fills the voids between the canopy and truck bed and has not leaked. It is easy to apply and seems to withstand canopy shifting while you're fitting it to the truck. I'd give it five stars but it's longevity has not been tested.
Product was used to seal cap to the bed rails of my truck. Was easy to install.
Great product, easy to apply and sealed my truck topper to the bed of my truck.
I thought it would be more like rubber, but it's more like foam rubber. Works great though.
I used this to replace the seal on my truck topper. It is far superior to the original seal on the topper. After I removed the old seal then cleaned and sanded the area I just unrolled the cap seal and removed the paper backing off the adhesive strip as I applied the seal to the topper. Around the corners it was easy to trim to make the turns and looks great! After putting the topper back on the
I ordered 25 feet of this for my fullsize Ram 2500 longbed and had about a foot leftover. My trucks shell seal was failing and letting water into the bed. I installed this in less than an hour and was 'lucky' enough to drive through a rainstorm the following day and there was no water at all in the bed. The shell is sealed very well to the truck now. The only downside is this is thicker than the previous seal so the shell sits up a tad higher, and my clamps barely fit, but it worked out fine.
