Diamond Back Covers Product Evaluation

I have had the great pleasure of playing with one of Diamond Back Covers Premium new products. All I can say is WOW! This thing will support 1600lbs and look really nice while doing it.

The one I have been testing is the ATV Package and I will be posting the completed evaluation article soon. Here are a couple photos from the testing phase, many more to come so keep checking back here for the finished article!

Yes this thing really IS kid tough!



It will hold 2 ATV's and leave all that room underneath for the rest of your gear safely locked up!

That is a lousy photo, I have more and better shots that show the quality of this product. On a scale of 1-10 for product quality I would give it a 9.99 and that is with the idea that I may never know what a 10 would look like

Seriously, they use top quality components and manufacturing process to make a very nice product indeed. I have yet to find a fault of any kind in the product it self. I think a template could be added to the instructions to make it easier to drill the holes for the side rails, but the product it self is all top notch stuff.

As a matter of fact my first comment to my Wife after I put it on my truck was that it looked like a Diamond sitting on a turd Now I have to paint the truck, and put some nice step bars to match it.

My grandson, (the one dancing on it in that picture) said he liked it but I needed to get some new wheels to go with it Those pics don't show how shiny and pretty the polished aluminum is because of the cloud cover that day.

It REALLY looks a great deal better in person and I will be showing further pictures to prove it

I really wish this was available a few years ago when I got my Advance Folding Cover. This option of having carrying capacity on top of the lid is a real bonus. Can't wait for the review Larry, lucky dog.

It comes with a really STRONG set of ramps. Just like the top they are very high quality. I will include a picture of them soon.

My friend got one of these products and it looks completely amazing. He too, has the ATV package. It is really cool to see two ATV's, standing tall, on the top of a cover.

The cover certainly delivers on its promise to haul up to 1600 lbs on top. I would definitely look into it guys.

I can't wait for the full review. It is going to be cool.

Hey Top,
I want to see video of you riding the ATV up the ramp. Top gets dizzy on anything higher than his Lazy-Boy!
