FAQ — BAKFlip F1 Rolling Tonneau Cover


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.

How Durable is the BAKFlip F1 Rolling Tonneau Cover for a 2015 Toyota Tundra?

Toyota Tundra Owner: I sent you a request for the Bakflip F1 tonneau cover and you sent me an email.

Peter: Did you want to place an order?

Toyota Tundra Owner: Yeah, I'm thinking about it. So, it's got the three year warranty, so it's all by the BAK manufacturer, you're an authorized dealer, right?

Peter: Absolutely, we actually work directly with the manufacturer.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay. So, I guess if I ordered it today when would I expect to see it?

Peter: About five to seven days, so be on the safe side. It could be sooner, but that's average.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Are you able to honor the quoted price with the free shipping?

Peter: That's right.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay. And so that's the most heavy duty, top of the line BAKFlip model they have?

Peter: Yes, BAK makes very high quality tonneau covers.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay. Have you seen or handled that roll up version? I'm a little concerned about that. About it not lasting as long.

Peter: I like the hard folding covers quote a bit. What truck is it for?

Toyota Tundra Owner: It's a 2015 Toyota Tundra. I have a question. So I have the bed tie-downs that run down the side of the truck. But the adapters that came with the last cover I owned weren't good. If I hooked anything up to their tie-downs it would just bend out because they're just like flat pieces of eighth inch steel or something like that. Did I notice that in the picture it's the same part that sort of clamps onto the truck is what holds those rails now in this system?

Peter: Yeah, but you're not going to have an issue there.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay, so I could strap something to it, it's not going to bend in towards the truck?

Peter: Yeah, that will be just fine. What's the bed length of your truck?

Toyota Tundra Owner: Six foot seven inches.
