Is There a Price Difference Between the BAKFlip F1 and the MX4?
Ram Owner: I talked to you earlier and you mentioned that BAKflip tonneau cover. I was looking at that MX4. What's the difference between the MX4 and F1? I have a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500.Peter: It's just the material they're made of. So the MX4 is aluminum and the F1 is a fiberglass reinforced polymer. So it, in theory, can stand up to denting a little bit better than the aluminum.
Ram Owner: Is there a price difference between the F1 and the MX4?Peter: Yeah about a $10 difference.
Ram Owner: Is that like a matte black finish or is that a shiny black finish?Peter: It's kind of in-between. I wouldn't call it a high gloss and it's not a matte. It's kind of in-between.
Ram Owner: Okay. Alrighty. Well, I'm going to try to go home tonight and I'm going to measure my truck bed. I think that's the route I'm going to go. I think I also want that Bed Tread Impact Mat. Unless there was another one there that you can tell me is any different or any better there.
Peter: I really like that one. I've sold a lot of them recently. I've had customers review it very highly, so I've got a lot of confidence in that one.
Ram Owner: Okay. So then I'm not really worried about the sides. I think it had like a carpet for the sides on one of them, but not really concerned about that. Just worried about the bed bottom there.Peter: Sure.
Ram Owner: Okay. Well, once again, I'll probably be getting back with you. You've been very helpful and explaining this stuff to me.Peter: Yeah, no problem.
What Material is the Bedrug Made Out Of?
Ram Owner: I spoke with you earlier about the 2017 Ram 1500. You had mentioned you could get a mat from Bedrug. Which particular mat is it that you can get?Peter: I carry their whole line.
Ram Owner: Oh, really? Okay. I'm looking at here, it's called a Bedrug or Bed Tread Impact Bed Mat.Peter: Okay. Let's see. Did you just want the mat or do you want to cover the tailgate too?
Ram Owner: Yeah, well I guess this one comes with the tailgate also.Peter: Actually, yeah. I think you're right. Yeah. Yes it does. Okay. Yeah, I've got that one.
Ram Owner: What is that material that the Bedrug is made out of?Peter: It's like a anti-skid TPO composite. It's probably like a really kind of durable mix of rubber and plastic. But yeah, this is a newer product, but it's starting to really grow in popularity as it gets more reviews.
Ram Owner: Okay. And can you tell if that mat or the divider there for the tailgate, does that always stay in place?
Peter: It does.
Ram Owner: Okay. Okay. So I've got to check my bed length. I think it is a five seven but I want to make sure.
Peter: Okay. Sounds good. Feel free to give me a call back later on.
Are There Any Issues When Cleaning a Soft Tonneau Cover?
Ford F250 Owner: I put in some information yesterday regarding a Tonneau Cover, received an email with a price on it. I wanted to go ahead and order that, but how do I make sure I get that price?Sean: What kind of Tonneau Cover was it?
Ford F250 Owner: It's a TuXedo Lo Pro Qt.Sean: What's the vehicle?
Ford F250 Owner: 2019 Ford F-250Sean: All right, I see the quote here, so I'm going to send you an email. Basically what you'll do is you will click complete purchase. It'll run you through the steps to put your shipping and billing address in, and then it'll ask for payment, and you'll go ahead and make payment through there.
Ford F250 Owner: Just one question, just before I complete this one. They make another one called an X... It's called an XXT or something like that? It's basically the same Tonneau Cover with like a soft top on it instead of a vinyl. I don't know if you're familiar with that. X15 it's called.Sean: Yeah, the Pro X15?
Ford F250 Owner: Yeah. Is that just a $30 difference?Sean: Correct.
Ford F250 Owner: I don't suppose you have any inside as to whether people have had issues with cleaning that soft cover or anything like that would you?Sean: No. The Lo Pros... Which one are you talking about? The Pro X or the Lo Pro?
Ford F250 Owner: The Pro X. I had the Lo Pro before on another truck and I had no problem, but it was a vinyl cover, you know? This other one is like... It's vinyl with cloth over the top of it.Sean: Right. Yeah, it's fabric. I've not heard of any issues cleaning it or anything like that, but it's not going to be as easy to clean as the vinyl cover for sure.
Ford F250 Owner: I think I'm just going to stick with this one. I know it works. I've had one before.Sean: Okay. Well great, man. Like I said, if you find anything else you need, or if you have any other questions, give us a call. We'll take care of you.

F250 Owner: I have to look it up. They're the ones for the '17s, you take the tail light off and then they bolt through, because it's an aluminum truck bed.Peter: Right.
F250 Owner: So you don't have to drill any holes. The self tapping screws I guess that they install the other ones with.Peter: Right.
F250 Owner: I'll have to look it up and give you a call back I guess.Peter: Yeah, just let me know. Like I said, I probably carry it and I'll get you a good deal.
