FAQ — BAKFlip G2


What's the difference between the MX4 and the F1 for a 2019 Nissan Frontier?

Nissan Owner: Hi, Peter. You gave me a quote a couple of days ago on a BAKflip F1 tonneau cover.

Peter: Okay. What truck was it for?

Nissan Owner: It was for a 2019 Nissan Frontier.

Peter: Okay. Yep, and it's free shipping, and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

Nissan Owner: Yep. And that'll fit my six-foot bed, correct?

Peter: Yeah. What year was the Frontier?

Nissan Owner: 2019. Brand new.

Peter: Okay. Yep, I've got it here. Perfect fit.

Nissan Owner: Okay. Question for you. Now, I have a ... I got a guy that deals with covers locally and I went and talked to him and he's got an MX4.

Peter: Okay.

Nissan Owner: And he's pushing the G2 and the MX4.

Peter: Okay.

Nissan Owner: And I'm like, "What's the difference between the MX4 and the F1?" I mean, I want, like, one of the better covers. I don't want something that's going to fall apart in three or four years, you know?

Peter: So, the MX4 is a great cover, too. They're actually the same cover, except the F1 is made of the fiberglass reinforced polymer, which is their strongest material. So, it's going to hold up to denting things, stuff like that, better than the aluminum of the MX4.

Nissan Owner: Right, but is the polymer, is it just as strong as the aluminum and will it outlast everything?

Peter: It's stronger than the aluminum. Yeah.

Nissan Owner: Is it? Okay. Okay. Yeah, okay. I've seen some good reviews about you online. I'd like to order that F1 for myself, please.

Peter: Sure. Yeah. I'll get you going here. You'll get an email confirmation here in just a second, and then allow about five to seven days at the most for delivery on this.

Toyota Owner: It's a 2006 Toyota Tundra, four-door.

Peter: What's the bed length?

Toyota Owner: 6'2" bed.

Peter: Okay. And which cover were we talking about?

Toyota Owner: I think you had quoted me on the G2 Cover. How long are your quotes on tonneau covers good for?

Peter: Yep. Generally our quotes only last for 10 days, but I'll still honor this price along with the free shipping, and there's no sales tax.

Toyota Owner: Okay. Yeah, I think I'd like to go and get it.

Peter: Okay. Allow about five days for delivery on this. You're going to receive a payment confirmation here in just a second. There we go. All right. And you're all set, you're good to go.

Does the BAKFlip G2 for a 2015 Ford F250 Crew Cab Come With a Lock?

F250 Owner: Okay. I just received an email about the BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover.

Sean: Okay. Do you want to place an order for one of those?

F250 Owner: Well, I had some questions about the cover first.

Sean: Whatcha got?

F250 Owner: What type of key and lock comes with that? Is it a hardened lock?

Sean: There are no locks on the covers, but you can't open the cover with your tailgate locked, so as long as you have a tailgate lock, you are good to go.

F250 Owner: Okay. Does this come with the dust cover, between the Tonneau Cover and the tailgate?

Sean: Sure, I can throw a tailgate seal in there for you.

F250 Owner: Okay. You quoted me free shipping. Is that still available?

Sean: Yes sir. What kind of truck is it?

F250 Owner: It's a 2015 Ford F250 Crew Cab six foot nine box. Can I order a little later today?

Sean: Well here's what I'll do. I'm going to e-mail you with a form and should you want to do it yourself you'll have that option, and if you want to call us back I can help you that way too.

What is the Most Popular Hard Folding Cover for a 2017 Ford F-250 with a 6'9 Bed?

F-250 Owner: Hey, I got your message here. I was looking at a bed cover for a 2017 Ford F-250 with a 6'9 bed.

Peter: Okay, got it. And which cover were we looking at?

F-250 Owner: I kind of like the BAKFlips.

Peter: Okay. Do you know which model?

F-250 Owner: The hard folding one, I know that. I don't remember what model it is, but I do know I want it to be a hard cover that folds for sure.

Peter: Yeah, they make a few of those, but the most popular hard folding cover is going to be the BAKFlip MX4. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

F-250 Owner: Okay. Yeah, cause you have been emailing me a little bit back on them, and you quoted me a price already. But that's just probably a little more than I want to spend right now on a one.

Peter: Okay. The BAKFlip G2 is a little bit less expensive. I will send you a price quote right now.

F-250 Owner: Okay. Yeah. What's your best price you can do on both of those covers?

Peter: Those are my best prices.

F-250 Owner: Do they still make the VP?

Peter: They might still make it, but we do not sell it anymore. They were having some issues with it, so we stopped selling it.

F-250 Owner: All right. Let me give this some thought. Like I said, I'm not sure what I have to spend on one right now.

Peter: Okay. Yeah. Let me know.

Is the BAKFlip MX4 Available for My 2006 Toyota Tundra?

Toyota Tundra Owner: Hey Peter, I got your email about a vinyl cover.

Peter: Okay. Which cover were we talking about?

Toyota Tundra Owner: You said you sent me a quote. I never saw the quote, but I did see your pricing in your email, your followup email. So I've got a 2006 Toyota Tundra. It's a four-door.

Peter: Okay. Which cover were we talking about?

Toyota Tundra Owner: Well, I was looking at two, and that's one of the things I wanted to talk about is, either the MX4, or they have a less expensive model.

Peter: Yes. The G2.

Toyota Tundra Owner: And what's the difference between the BAKFlip MX4 and the G2 for my truck?

Peter: I'm just looking up your truck real quick. It's a 2006 Tundra. What's the bed like?

Toyota Tundra Owner: Right. Well, that's what I'm going to go measure right now and I'm wondering, I've got a bed liner in it, so it's got the factory liner in it.

Peter: Okay. So they actually do not make the MX4 for your truck. So that might narrow it down. Let me double-check on the G2. So it's an '06 Tundra. What's the bed length?

Toyota Tundra Owner: It looks like 6'2 bed.

Peter: Okay. So they do have the G2. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Let me make a note on this. I got to see if I can afford this guy. Now, do I call, are you with the actual manufacturer?

Peter: I'm not. Our company is separate, but we work directly with the manufacturer. That's where the cover will be coming from.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay. I haven't done a ton of research, so let me see. What is the lead time to get it and how does it ship?

Peter: It's about five to seven days and it comes FedEx.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay. All right. Let me see what I can work up here and I'll give you a shout. Oh, are there any other covers that you might recommend? I mean, you guys carry a lot of brands?

Peter: We do. I actually liked the BAKFlips the best. They're the highest reviewed cover out there. They hold up so well over time and they very rarely have warranty issues. Plus they look really nice. So I think you're probably right where you want to be with the G2.

How Does The BAKFlip MX4 Compare To The Extang Encore?

Toyota Tundra Owner: You and I communicated by email regarding possible Tonneau cover for my 2019 Toyota Tundra.

Peter: Okay.

Toyota Tundra Owner: I've been going back and forth between the BAKflip MX4 and ... what's the other brand that has the cover that can flip from the front as well and has kind of a little lock there?

Peter: That's Extang. The Extang Encore.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Yeah ... Help me out, what are some of the differences, advantages of one or the other. Basically, how does the BAKFlip MX4 compare to the Extang Encore?

Peter: The MX4 can fold all the way up and secure behind the cab so you have full use of your bed when you need to. The Extang doesn't do that. The MX4 sits flush inside the bedrail, so it's super low profile.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay. And the Encore?

Peter: The Encore sits up on top, so it's a higher profile cover. Obviously the main difference that you just mentioned, that you can open it from right behind the cab. The MX4 can't do that. I mean, they're both really well reviewed. It just kind of depends on what you're using it for.

Toyota Tundra Owner: I had a BAKFlip before on my other truck. I had a G2, I guess it was, several years ago. I had an 02 Tundra and I think I got that probably 2008 or 9, something like that. Really loved it.

Peter: Yeah.

Toyota Tundra Owner: I understand that the MX4 is probably a little lighter perhaps. I think that the G2, it could get difficult, you know, sometimes trying to flip those things open. So, I'd be leaning toward the MX4 then. I know you emailed me a quote. Where are we at with the MX4 vs the Encore for pricing at this point?

Peter: So, you have a 2019 Tundra? What's the bed length?

Toyota Tundra Owner: Correct. 2019 Toyota Tundra and it's five and a half foot bed.

Peter: Do you have the Deck Rail System in the bed?

Toyota Tundra Owner: No, I don't have a Deck Rail System.

Peter: That quote I sent you for the MX4 is still valid. The Encore would only be $30 more than the MX4. It's free shipping on both and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

Toyota Tundra Owner: Yeah, I think I want to go with the MX4.

Peter: Okay, I'll get you all set up for shipping, and then you're good to go!
