What Cover is Comparable to the Discontinued BAK RollBAK for a 2013 Ford F150?
F150 Owner: I'm looking for a locking mechanism for a BAK retractable bed cover. The stock number was R15309. I've called BAK and they no longer make that bed cover, so they don't have any parts in stock. I'm just looking for something. What's happened is, I've got one of the latches on the bed cover that has become inoperable so I need to replace that whole system in there.Shawn: Okay. It looks like, if they don't have anything, I'm not going to be able to get anything either because I just sell their parts and I get stuff from them.
F150 Owner: I don't even have a part number. I don't have the manual and stuff for the cover so...Shawn: Yeah, and I'm looking. Let me see here, so it's a BAK...
F150 Owner: It's a retractable, and I was told that there's a solid piece that runs- I've not been underneath the cover, or haven't folded it up to look at it- but I know that there's a little plastic hook exert that comes out of the side of the cover on each side and one of them is not there. And I don't know whether it's hung up in there or whether it's broken off. I think it's hung up in there.Shawn: Okay.
F150 Owner: And I don't know whether that can be taken apart and fixed or not. I've got the model number.Shawn: Okay, what's that model number?
F150 Owner: R15309.Shawn: So the RollBAK...
F150 Owner: It's a RollBak retractable cover, aluminum cover, I think. Yeah, they used aluminum cover, yeah. I thought maybe they still make those covers, but they said that they don't make that particular cover. Well that's fine, but the locking system should be the same on all units, I would think, unless they had a problem with that particular one and they've just discontinued using that unit.Shawn: Yeah, the cover that they have on it now is totally updated with new parts.
F150 Owner: What is the name of the new cover they've got out now?Shawn: It's called the "Vortrak."
F150 Owner: Okay. I'm just wondering, but is its spring retractable like the other unit was?Shawn: I'm looking here... let's see...
F150 Owner: You know, if we could get ahold of a manual for the other unit and look at the manual on this one, and see if the latching system would be identical then it should fit.Shawn: I'm looking now here...
F150 Owner: I've talked to a couple of local truck accessory places, and they told me that they discontinued using BAK because they had so much trouble with it, so maybe they don't have a good track record.Shawn: Yeah, I've not heard of a whole lot of issues with them.
F150 Owner: You guys probably handle more than the two local dealers here.Shawn: Right. Yeah I'm looking here, and the latching mechanism's just totally different between the Vortrak and the RollBAK, unfortunately. Got an installation guide here. Honestly, this isn't the best option, but I could sell you a Vortrak since it's a comparable cover. But I don't know if that's what you're looking to do today.
F150 Owner: Well, I'd like to get the one I've got repaired if I can.Shawn: Right. Yeah, and I'd love for you to do that too, man, but if you've already talked to them, and I'm sitting here looking, I can't find anything at my supplier's for that part number. I've looked, and they've got some of the roll-back covers but they don't have any parts, and they don't even have that model number either.
F150 Owner: What would a Vortrak unit cost me from you guys?Shawn: What kind of truck is it?
F150 Owner: It's an F150, 2013. four-door with a 5'6 bed.Shawn: Okay. I just sent you a quote via email, and I included a discount.
F150 Owner: Okay. Well, let me think about this. I'll take a look and call you back. Thanks for your helpF150 Owner: Okay. You're welcome.
Does the Remote Tailgate Release Still Work on a 2016 F150 King Ranch with a Retrax Pro XR Cover?
F-150 Owner: You had sent me a quote yesterday and I called and talked to one of your other representatives. I'm looking at the Retrax Pro XR.Peter: Okay.
F-150 Owner: I have a 2016 F150 King Ranch, so it has the remote tailgate release.Peter: Okay.
F-150 Owner: I know that this Retrax goes over the tailgate. Is it so tight that the release, I mean, usually on these type of things until the seal wears in a little bit over a month or something, it might be a little tight from the release, but does the release still work?Peter: Yes, it will be a little tight at first. With the Retrax it will be even a little bit tight when you're opening it and closing it for the first couple of weeks. So that's normal, but it definitely wears and you won't have any issues there.
F-150 Owner: All right, next question. The powered version, what's the cost of that versus the Pro XR?Peter: Double check that here. So you want the powered?
F-150 Owner: No, I'm just comparing. The problem is because it's an FX4 it's up a little high and my wife's only five two.Peter: Yep. I understand. What's the bed length?
F-150 Owner: Five and a half. Or five seven, whatever it is. It's a 2016 F150.Peter: Okay. Let me see.
F-150 Owner: So it would be the Power Trax Pro XR.Peter: Yep. There's roughly a $740 difference. Same deal with the free shipping. No sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.
F-150 Owner: Okay. I'll make my decision in the next couple of hours and then I will give you a call this afternoon.Peter: Okay. Sounds good. We'll talk to soon.
How Long Does Shipping Take on a Truxport Cover for a 2015 Ford F150 Crew Cab?
F-150 Owner: I was checking in this past week and I ran across an e-mail for you guys. And then, you were responding I just never got back to you. But I was interested in getting, I believe it's a Truxedo Truxport tonneau cover.Peter: Okay. What truck is it for?
F-150 Owner: It's a 2015 Ford F150 crew cab with a 5-7 bed.Peter: Okay. Yeah. So it's going to be free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering outside of Arizona.
F-150 Owner: Right. So what would be the soonest that that could arrive here? Do you have any idea, or?Peter: It's usually about five days.
F-150 Owner: I would need it by a week from tomorrow. I could still potentially get it by this weekend you think?Peter: Yes.
F-150 Owner: Are the latches pretty good on those?Peter: Yeah, I believe they are.
F-150 Owner: I recently bought a cheaper unit through eBay and we were installing it a couple weekends ago, and it had little plastics things on it where it rotates in the cradle and latches down on the back. And this little pin broke off right away. So I need to get something a little better quality than this.Peter: Yeah, I totally understand. So it's a 2015 F150 short bed?
F-150 Owner: Right. Crew cab, yep.Peter: Okay. I'll get this set up for shipping and you will be all set!
Is the BAKFlip Revolver X4 easy to install on a 2015 Ford F150 Super Crew?
F-150 Owner: I thought that maybe you could answer a couple questions. I was looking at the BAKFlip. I was looking at two of them. First the MX4, but my preference is a Revolver X4, to be honest with you. I kind of like that setup. I kind of wanted your opinion on it. It seems like you know what you're talking about when it comes to covers.Peter: Yeah, so they're both great. They both have a matte black finish. Some guys choose the Revolver over the BAKFlip because when it's all the way open, they can still see out their back window, a little bit. Where as the folding cover is going to block it completely. So that's really kind of the deciding factor for most guys when they're deciding between those two, but they're both great covers. They're super popular, very well reviewed. You can't go wrong with either.
F-150 Owner: Is the Revolver X4 easy to install?Peter: It is.
F-150 Owner: I tried watching a video. It looked pretty simple; a couple rails and a couple attachments and that was it.Peter: That's right.
F-150 Owner: I've been getting your emails forever, so I figured I would finally call to take advantage of your awesome prices. However, I was looking at Amazon and they've obviously got the lowest price, so I kind of wanted to see if you could match that.Peter: They may have the lowest price, but you'll have to pay sales tax with Amazon. We offer free shipping and no sales tax if you order outside of Arizona.
F-150 Owner: Okay let's do the Revolver X4. It would be on a 2015 Ford F150.Peter: Okay.
F-150 Owner: And it's a SuperCrew.Peter: That's the short bed?
F-150 Owner: And a short bed, yeah. What's delivery time on that?Peter: It's about 5-7 days.
F-150 Owner: That's kind of the big thing. I've been delayed because I actually got stuck out of town for a few days because the weather. I wanted to have it on my truck by Friday. I thought I saw something where you guys had two-day delivery. Was I wrong on that?Peter: We do, it's expedited, but it costs a little bit more. It's still really reasonable though. I could get it to you by Wednesday, or Thursday at the very latest for $24.99.
F-150 Owner: Are you serious? Okay. All right. Well I'll tell you what. If you could do it do you promise it'd be here no later than Thursday?Peter: Yes.
F-150 Owner: Okay, and that's the Revolver X4 for my truck: the F150.Peter: That's right.
F-150 Owner: Okay. What do you think installation time is on that, if I did it myself? I'm not super mechanically inclined, but I could figure it out.Peter: Once you get everything out of the box we're talking probably 30 minutes or so.
F-150 Owner: Oh, okay. Well, let's do this. Can I do this with you on the phone or do I need to do it by email?Peter: No, I can take care of it.

Ford F150 Owner: Hey, I was just returning your email from over the weekend looking for a tonneau cover for a 2006 Ford F-150.Peter: Okay. What's the bed length?
Ford F150 Owner: I want to say it's six, six and a half foot bed.Peter: Okay, and which cover were you looking at?

Ford F150 Owner: You sent a price like in your email to me as well.Peter: Yes, plus it's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona. Do you want to get that ordered today?
Ford F150 Owner: Yeah, but I have a question. With the 2006 I know it's different than the 2009. So, just as long as that's the right one. Yeah, let's do it.Peter: Alright. Allow five to seven days for delivery on this. You're going to receive a payment confirmation here in just a second.
