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.

GMC Owner: It's a 2018 GMC pickup.Peter: Okay.
GMC Owner: 5'9" or 5'8" bed.Peter: Okay. The short one. Got It. Was there a particular model you were looking at?
GMC Owner: Well, yeah, I'm looking at two here. The BAKflip MX4 and they're RetraxPRO MX.Peter: Okay, great. Yeah, the MX4 is my favorite folding cover and the RetraxPRO MX is the best retractable.
GMC Owner: Your pricing is about $300 cheaper than, what I've been seeing elsewhere.Peter: Yeah. We're known for our pricing here.
GMC Owner: Yeah. Let me ask you about that and that MX4 BAKflip is that, I mean that was pretty sturdy bed cover.
