How Can I Get an Extang Encore Shipped Quickly For My 2017 Ford F-250?

F-250 Owner: Yeah, I'm calling about an Extang Encore tonneau cover.

Peter: Okay. What truck is it for?

F-250 Owner: A 2017 Ford F-250.

Peter: What's the bed like?

F-250 Owner: It measures 80 inches inside the bed. It's not a long bed.

Peter: Got you, okay. Yup, so I've got that here. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

F-250 Owner: How long until the cover arrives?

Peter: It would be about five days.

F-250 Owner: What's it shipping by?

Peter: It's FedEx, but it comes directly from the manufacturer. So typically, it can take two days to ship from the time you order and then you'd receive it about three days after that.

F-250 Owner: Okay, so that's shipping out of Michigan. That's where they make that stuff.

Peter: Yes.

F-250 Owner: So let's see, what's today, is Wednesday. You're saying that I should have it by next Tuesday. That's kind of lengthy for me.

Peter: Okay. Do you need it sooner than that? We do have other options. Let me just double check if it'll work in this case. Give me just a second. I could get it shipped out of Jasper warehouse, Indiana today or tomorrow morning, which would mean you'd have it Friday, Saturday, or Monday at the latest.

F-250 Owner: Friday, Saturday, or Monday?

Peter: Yeah, well, it's because if FedEx delivers in your neck of the woods on Saturday, then you'd probably have it Saturday at the latest. If not, it would be Monday at the latest.

F-250 Owner: What was the earliest? Friday?

Peter: Okay, yeah, I think you could probably have it by Friday because I can get it shipped today from Jasper.

F-250 Owner: All right, well, let's try it.

Peter: Okay, I will get this moving right now. You're going to get a confirmation email here. Here we go, and you are all set.

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.

Can I Use I The Track Rack From My Old F-150 on a New F-250 With a Retrax Pro XR?

F250 Owner: Hi, I was calling about a cover.

Sean: Okay. What kind of cover are you looking at?

F250 Owner: The Retrax Pro for a 2019 Ford F250

Sean: Okay. So the Pro MX has the matte black finish. That's the one you were looking for, right?

F250 Owner: I think so. I do like the matte finish

Sean: For an extra 100 bucks you can get the Retrax Pro XR which has the T channel side rails. And right now, they're doing a promotion, where if you buy that cover, you get Yakima Jet Stream load bars for free, which is about $500 worth of load bars. So you could add bike racks, kayak racks, snowboard racks, whatever you want. Yakima, Thule liner rack.

F250 Owner: Do they have a lumber rack kind of thing for that?

Sean: Yeah, they do. I definitely think you would want to go with something other than the racks they're giving to you for free, but yeah, you can buy a set, and they range depending on which brand you want, but anywhere from $500 to $900. So they've got Yakima and Thule, but as long as they have that T-slot, you can swap it out with whatever you want.

F250 Owner: The difference between the matte finish and the shiny finish, is there any difference other than the finish on that one?

Sean: No, just the finish. And the shiny one is actually about $50 more than the matte black.

F250 Owner: Had that one on a pretty big truck. And the built in rail things, are they similar to the track rack things?

Sean: Yeah, yeah like the track rack

F250 Owner: Like they can slide off and on?

Sean: Right, correct.

F250 Owner: I actually have the whole track rack, the rails and the rack, on my old truck already so I don't even need that

Sean: Got ya

F250 Owner: It's probably the equivalent of those racks.

Sean: Yeah, between there. I'd have to look it up, let me look here. Thule SR. So what do you have, the track rack SR?

F250 Owner: Yeah, the track rack whatever. I don't know what they are

Sean: It comes with two rails that sits inside your track pockets, or your stick pockets?

F250 Owner: They sit on top. I actually had them installed in the previous truck.

Sean: What truck did you have?

F250 Owner: It was an F150 that I had bolted those on.

Sean: Okay well if you wanted to do that

F250 Owner: Well these new rails are built right into the, my engine's on the track racks?

Sean: Correct.

F250 Owner: And that price includes shipping for the cover, or shipping is extra?

Sean: No, shipping is included.

F250 Owner: Okay. Can you email that to me?

Sean: Yeah, one second.

F250 Owner: Standard price?

Sean: No, that's the sale price, so. Let me see here, though. You will be good on that for, I mean you're good, I'm not gonna take it back from ya so whenever you're ready, just let me know. I will still honor that promotion. 

F250 Owner: Okay, send that to me so when I get home I can look at it, I wasn't considering that other rack system, I already have it but if it looks like something worth it, maybe I'll do it.

Sean: Okay, I'll get those things over there to you. I'll actually send you both quotes, I'll send you a quote for the XR and then I'll send you a quote for the regular MX.

F250 Owner: And would you say that built in system that they have now is like equivalent to the track rack now and stuff?

Sean: Yeah, yeah they actually make it's called a Yakima HD Rack, which looks almost identical to the track rack, but it works with the t-slot.

F250 Owner: So the slot part's different, so I could use my rack?

Sean: I don't think you're gonna be able to. Or would you make that notch yourself? Cause it covers part of it with the Retrax, unless you get the cutouts.

F250 Owner: I might, my old one didn't have to have the stake pocket anything.

Sean: Really? Okay.

F250 Owner: Yeah, it just bolted across the top and then I kind of bolted the track rack rails on top of that rail for that site, laying just apart.

Sean: Okay, got ya. The second one you receive is actually going to be the one that is the standard Retrax Pro, it's probably like what you had before except for being the matte black instead of the shiny finish. 

F250 Owner: Okay, I already got the first one perfectly

F250 Owner: Alright, I'll update that on my side too, so should you decide what one you want to go with, you can complete your purchase through the links, or just give us a call back and we can help you.

F250 Owner: Okay. What's the shipping time on those?

F250 Owner: The Retrax, they do bill-to-order. They usually take two to three days to ship, and then depending on where you're at, it's another three to four day transit.

F250 Owner: Alright, thank you very much. I'll check it out.

Best Floor Mats and Retrax Cover for my 2019 Ford F-250 Super Duty

F-250 Owner: I have been looking at a Tonneau Cover with you all for a few days now and I think I've come to the decision on what I want.

Shawn: Okay.

F-250 Owner: It's the Retrax, what is it the X, the aluminum one? I believe it's called the Pro MX.

Shawn: Okay. You know they have a special right now on the XR, which is the one that has the rails that you can add racks and stuff to.

F-250 Owner: Okay, with the bars on top, they go across the bed then? And then with the bike racks you have to attach them to those?

Shawn: Correct the rails for the XR come with a little what they call T-slot. Then you can actually add things like bike racks, luggage baskets, all sorts of stuff. And right now Retrax is actually doing a deal, if you buy one of those covers, they have a mail in rebate where they send you the load bars for free. So essentially, you can have your cover and you're going to have stuff underneath your cover, obviously. What was your truck again?

F-250 Owner: 2019 Ford F-250 Super duty four wheel drive, 6'9 bed. It would help compared to having to roll them up shoving the stuff in the back for bikes. And what kind of racks do you have? Do you have the racks available online that you get with it?

Shawn: We don't personally have them on our website, but anything that you find, if you come back to us with the description or the SKU I can look them up and I'm sure I can get it. Anything will work on it. I don't know if you have ever heard of Yakima, Thule, Rhino Rack, all that stuff will work on it because it is all T-slot.

F-250 Owner: Okay. So they come and I send the rebate in to get the bars that fit into the T-slots and then all I will have to do is the adapters that I want to put on there like bike racks and such.

Shawn: Correct. Boogie board racks, whatever you do.

F-250 Owner: Now, one more question on this. With that are they strong enough to put ladder racks on those?

Shawn: The one you would be getting is the short rack, but then Yakima makes another rack you could get that has the T-slots in it as well. It's a taller rack.

F-250 Owner: I'm trying to find this on your website which cover is. Do you have it on the website right now?

Shawn: Yes, it should be on our website.

F-250 Owner: I see the MX, but I don't see XR. It's pretty much the same thing, except it's powered then.

Shawn: Yeah the Retrax Pro XR between that and the MX is just the slots and rails. They look the same, they sit at the same height.

F-250 Owner: Okay I see where they just pick up the slots and slide them forward or out. And then you can add the other stuff on top of that from there. And see you can take them off and then not use it again.

Shawn: Right, absolutely. Yeah you can take accessories off. You are aways gonna have the slots in the railing, but you can take the accessories off.

F-250 Owner: See I kinda like that because I can put stuff in the back to keep it dry, other stuff, bicycles, or whatever, cargo, or boards on the backside.

Shawn: Right, exactly.

F-250 Owner: it says that I should get the tailgate seal kit for free.

Shawn: Yes, absolutely

F-250 Owner: Do you have the floor mats? What kind of floor mats of you have that you would recommend?

Shawn: For you, lets see here, I have Husky, WeatherTech, I like WeatherTech but at the same time the hard rubber is kinda a little more slick, at least, in my opinion than what the rubbery, more or a rubber than a plastic if that makes sense.

F-250 Owner: Which one is that the WeatherTech or the Husky?

Shawn: The Husky is more rubbery rather than the hard plastic that WeatherTech has, which I have found can be kinda slick. What color is your interior on you Super Duty?

F-250 Owner: I have black carpets.

Shawn: Black okay, yeah I think I can get you a full set.

F-250 Owner: And it's got the center console because in the middle between the driver and passenger all the way up. It's got a big 2-piece in front and 1-piece in rear. It's got the full 4-door cab on it. Would it snap into locator buttons on the floor for the original floor mats?

Shawn: Yes, they are called the X-Act Contour is what it's actually called. And let me see what I can get you on the price on the full set ... Crew cab right? Crew cab or Super Cab?

F-250 Owner: Super Cab it's got the full 4 doors on that thing, it's huge.

Shawn: I think I'm looking at the wrong one. I think it's actually crew and they call it. Because the Super cab I think what they refer to as, do you have a factory storage box under your rear seat?

F-250 Owner: Yes, it folds up and down and stuff.

Shawn: And your center console is covered, you don't need a hump cover.

F-250 Owner: Yeah in the front. I will give the Husky liners a shot. If I don't like them I can return them.

Shawn: I'm sure you will love them. I actually have them in my Challenger and in my Chrysler 300.

F-250 Owner: Back to Retrax, correct me if I'm wrong, I can lock it in any position on the way open that I want. It's not like every 12 inches like a lot of them are.

Shawn: Correct.

F-250 Owner: Okay that is what I thought. Because that is what I wanted so I can lock it wherever I want. T-slot sounds good too.

Shawn: Yeah it's a great deal. Especially since they are giving away those pieces right now, those extra racks. It makes it a lot more enticing.

F-250 Owner: And you will send the rebate to me or how will that come to me?

Shawn: I can definitely help you with that. The way that it happens is you just go to their site and fill out a few pieces of information and they send it to you. You fill it out, send it in to them, and then they will send you your part. Alright you should get an email from them. You should already have a couple from me. And then I'm getting ready to finish your order here.

F-250 Owner: One more thing. On the rocker seals do they make covers that can go on those to keep those from getting scratched up when you are getting in and out of the vehicle?

Shawn: Yes they do, let me see. Kick panels, Feldco has come really nice ones. Alright here is what I'm thinking about these doors seals. They have some that are black platinum. I'm just trying to make sure my supplier has them before I get you pumped up. But they would say either Super Duty or Ford on them.

F-250 Owner: Those aren't black, the color of the truck is not black, just the carpet is black but that's fine.

Shawn: They have stainless as well. So it's up to you stainless is cheaper by $30. There are black platinum ones as well.

F-250 Owner: Black platinum ones sound cool. Thanks a lot!

Shawn: Not a problem man. You should receive a confirmation email for you order. Give us a call if you need anything else.

What's the Difference Between a Retrax Pro and a Retrax Pro XR for a 2019 Ford F-250 with an 8 foot bed?

Ford F250 Owner: Yeah, I'd like to discuss a Tonneau Cover.

Shawn: What kind of Tonneau Cover are you looking at?

Ford F250 Owner: The Retrax Pro.

Shawn: What kind of truck is it?

Ford F250 Owner: It's a 2019 Ford F-250 with an 8 foot bed.

Shawn: Okay, let's see here. So for the Pro MX in the Matte black, for the 8 foot bed ... Standard rails, or do you want the stake pocket cut outs?

Ford F250 Owner: Are the stake pocket cutouts the little holes in the truck?

Shawn: Yeah.

Ford F250 Owner: Yeah, let's do it with the cut outs.

Shawn: Okay. There's no tax outside of Arizona, and shipping is free.

Ford F250 Owner: Is there a cover that has rails on it, to where you can put bars on top?

Shawn: Yes, but the one I just quoted is not the one. I can get you the info on that one if you like.

Ford F250 Owner: I don't need the rails right now. I'm thinking that I may just want the one that has the ability to put the bars on there.

Shawn: Well, the cool thing is ... I think it's like $100 more and you get the rails, but right now they're running a promotion where you actually get the rails for free. But you won't have those cut outs, and it's called the Retrax Pro XR.

Ford F250 Owner: But it's the same color and all that?

Shawn: Correct.

Ford F250 Owner: The matte black aluminum supports the weight and all that? But it doesn't have cut outs. Why doesn't it have cut outs?

Shawn: Well, because of those rails. That T channel goes through the whole length of the rail, pretty much right where those cut outs would be. And you can't alter that. And the purpose for the cut outs, really, is for racks and things like that, so you're kind of replacing that with this.

Ford F250 Owner: Yeah. Okay. That's what I need to know. I appreciate it.

Shawn: You got it, my friend.

Ford F250 Owner: It's a good price. I just got to get my partner to approve it, but I'll be calling back.
