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.
