How Difficult is a BAKFlip Tonneau Cover to Install on a 2019 Tacoma?

Tacoma Owner: You sent me an email, I think it was yesterday, concerning a BAKFlip for my 2019 Tacoma.

Peter: Okay.

Tacoma Owner: And I just... I got a couple questions if you don't mind answering.

Peter: Sure.

Tacoma Owner: So I had a Tundra before, and I had one of those hard traditional Tonneau covers, like paint to match type thing.

Peter: Yeah.

Tacoma Owner: And I know... It was kind of just a pain to take off. You needed another person and stuff.

Peter: Yeah.

Tacoma Owner: And I've seen these low profile ones like the BAKFlip. So I'm pretty certain that's what I want, but I don't want anything super glossy or anything. Kind of like that matte finish. And from what I've seen, I think the BAKFlip is what I want. I just don't know which one.

Peter: So you don't like the glossy finish. You want a matte finish.

Tacoma Owner: Right.

Peter: Okay.

Tacoma Owner: And I understand no Tonneau cover is going to be totally waterproof, and my other one wasn't. You had weatherstripping on it and stuff, but... to block out water for the most part. Are these things secure?

Peter: They are. Yeah. When the tailgate is locked, the cover is locked and secure, and they're extremely water resistant. You're going to want to go with the BAKFlip MX4. 

Tacoma Owner: Okay.

Peter: The most popular, the best reviewed, and it has that nice textured matte black finish that looks really good.

Tacoma Owner: Okay. And how difficult are these things to install?

Peter: Not Difficult at all. It's probably 30 minutes or less. They just clamp on. And then you install the drain tubes, and you're done. It's pretty simple.

Tacoma Owner: So I have the BAK rail system on that. Does that work with that?

Peter: It does.

Tacoma Owner: I'll be calling you back a bit later to place an order.

Peter: Okay. Sounds good!

What's the Best Tonneau Cover for Heavy Snow and Hail for a 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro?

Tacoma Owner: I would like to order a couple things through you guys if I can, please.

Peter: Sure, I can get you going here. What truck is it for?

Tacoma Owner: This is for a 2019 Tacoma TRD Pro, 5.2 inch bed.

Peter: Okay. What's the first item?

Tacoma Owner: Well, I'd like to get a Bedrug for that vehicle, and that would be the complete Bedrug; I think it's BRY19DCK.

Peter: I'll pull that up here.

Tacoma Owner: Okay. Just to make sure it fits, and that it's the right one.

Peter: Okay the full liner, I've got it here. What's the next item?

Tacoma Owner: Well, this is where I need a little bit of professional advice, okay?

Peter: Okay, sure.

Tacoma Owner: I'm looking at particularly the BakFlip F1, and I don't know if I want to go with the F1 or if I want to do the Undercover Ultra Flex. What is your opinion? We get heavy snow here, we get a lot of hail.

Peter: I would definitely go with the F1. I really, I like the Ultra Flex cover, but it's aluminum, and when you're dealing with hail, it will dent. You'll get those little dimples. And the F1 holds up to hail so much better than the aluminum covers. So I think you're right where you want to be with the F1. And I can do that one with free shipping on everything, and there's no sales tax.

Tacoma Owner: Oh, that's fantastic. That is fantastic, thank you.
