FAQ — 2018 Ford F150


What's the Difference Between the Revolver X2 and X4 for a 2018 Ford F150 SOP SuperCrew?

F150 Owner: You sent me an email and said that you have a good price on a tonneau cover for me, so I thought well let's take a look.

Tonneau Covered Agent: Okay what truck is it for?

F150 Owner: It's a 2018 Ford F150 SOP SuperCrew.

Tonneau Covered Agent: Okay, and which cover are you looking at?

F150 Owner: The Revolver X2 I think it was. I'm kind of torn between the X4 and the X2.

Tonneau Covered Agent: Okay. The X4 is only $20 more. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

F150 Owner: Okay. What's the difference between the X2 and X4?

Tonneau Covered Agent: Just the finish on top. The X2 is shiny . The X4 is a matte, black finish on top.

F150 Owner: So the X2 it kind has a soft, leathery look?

Tonneau Covered Agent: Right.

F150 Owner: Okay. Is the X4 soft or is it a hard?

Tonneau Covered Agent: Yeah, it's soft. I mean it's got the aluminum slating underneath, but it's soft on the top. It's just more of a dull, matte black.

F150 Owner: Oh, but other than that they're pretty much the same huh?

Tonneau Covered Agent: Right.

F150 Owner: Okay. But one's not going to hold up better than the other?

Tonneau Covered Agent: No, they're going to hold up the same.

F150 Owner: Okay. Yeah, I'd kind of looked at both of the covers. Alright, cool. I'm just going to think about it a little longer.

Tonneau Covered Agent: Okay. No problem.

What is The Best Bed Liner or Bed Mat for My 2018 Ford F150 Super Crew?

Ford F-150 Owner: Hi, I was pinging you back and forth here for a while on the tonneau cover for a Ford, the BAKFlip MX4, and I wanted to get the order placed.

Peter: What truck was it for again?

Ford F-150 Owner: It's a 2018 Ford F150 Super Crew, short bed.

Peter: Okay, got it. I can still honor the original offer I sent you plus free shipping, and no sales tax.

Ford F-150 Owner: Cool. I was thinking about adding the bug screen for the front. Are those worth it?

Peter: Yeah, I don't know. Some guys just like the look of them. I think if it serves some purpose and they like the look, they get it, but I don't think it does a whole lot.

Ford F-150 Owner: That's where I'm leaning. Then the other thought that I had was what would it cost me to adding a bed liner.

Peter: What kind?

Ford F-150 Owner: It's already got that spray coating on it, that black stuff, but it's rough, so just like a pad or something.

Peter: A popular option is the Dee Zee Heavyweight Mat. It's a rubber mat that's a little bit thicker than your average mat.

Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. Let's do that and a cover.

Peter: Okay. Then I'm going to get this shipped out for you.

Ford F-150 Owner: Awesome. Thank you for your help.

Should I Pick a BAK or EXTANG Tonneau Cover for a 2018 Ford F150?

F-150 Owner: I was calling in and looking into a tonneau cover.

Shawn: What kind of tonneau cover are you looking at?

F-150 Owner: Well I was looking at that BAKFlip, the four segment one. Forgot what it was called. The matte black one. 

Shawn: Okay, what kind of truck do you have?

F-150 Owner: I have a 2018 Ford F150. 5 foot 7 bed.

Shawn: Did you want to go ahead and place an order with me today on it?

F-150 Owner: Well, I was kind of looking. You guys have an elephant or one listed that you guys have just come out with?

Shawn: You know it didn't last very long.

F-150 Owner: Got you. Okay, yeah, because I was kind of poking around. The BAKFlips are, every review I looked at, the BAKFlip was up there, but I kept reading that they leak. And I was wondering if there's another one out there that would be comparable that doesn't leak or is that just inherent in that style.

Shawn: Well to prevent leaking you have to have the tonneau cover installed correctly and have all the seals laying like they should. You also will have the drain tubes. Just don't expect there to be no water whatsoever because it's not weather proof, it's weather resistant. If you wan't something that will stay drier, you're going to have to go with on top of the rails and I would suggest the extang that's Extang Solid Fold 2.0. It sits on top of the rails.

F-150 Owner: Okay. Well, that sounds good. Let me keep looking around at some other tonneau covers

Shawn: Alright man, check that out. Look at that solid fold. They are both really popular, they're owned by the same company. Kind of got to go with what you want in look and then what you want in functionality. That's just the honest opinion I have for you on those two.

F-150 Owner: You just said that. Okay, let me take a look at them and I'll give you a holler back.
