FAQ — GMC Sierra Truck


Should I Purchase an Extang or a BAK Tonneau Cover for My GMC Sierra?

Peter: Looks like you were interested in the Extang Solid Fold. 2.0 for your new GMC Sierra?

GMC Sierra Owner: Yeah. You know I've been doing a little bit of research over the weekend too. It seems like that has a lot of bad reviews, like in terms of leaking. So is there one that you would suggest?

Peter: The most popular ones are going to be the BAKFlip models. Those were designed with drain channels that lead to drain tubes that keep the water out of the bed. So it's just a different design and it's a little more water resistant for sure.

GMC Sierra Owner: Okay. Yeah. So when I was looking at those, cause I did, I started looking at some of those as well. What is the, I guess what's the advantage? I mean the other one seems to come off a lot easier. Right. But none of them seem to be real hard to take off.

Peter: Right. So there are a couple of advantages. One, they sit flush inside the bed rail, so it's got a more low profile appearance than the Extang. It's also a trifold, but it can fold completely up out of the bed and secure behind the cab. So you have full bed access. So it's a much more versatile than the Extang.

GMC Sierra Owner: Now I saw, there's a couple of different models of those as well. Right. I thought I saw two different models.

Peter: Yeah. The most popular by far is going to be the BAKFlip MX4.

GMC Sierra Owner: Okay.

Peter: That one, it has a really nice matte black finish that people like as well. Anything you order will have free shipping and there's no sales tax.

GMC Sierra Owner: Okay. Now that one, in terms of I have the new body type, my truck's the new body type. Will it fit?

Peter: Yes.

GMC Sierra Owner: I'll have to call back, but I have another question. How about like a bed rail for that truck? You carry those as well?

Peter: A bedrail?

GMC Sierra Owner: Yes. I'm looking for the chrome bars, I usually call them bed rails, but I don't know what they referred to as. They're kind of like the tubular bars that would just go kind of north south on the back of the bed.

Peter: Oh, got you. Yeah. You're going to have a few different options there. I know that Putco makes some. They kind of range in price, but I could get a couple of options ready for you.

GMC Sierra Owner: Oh, that'd be great. Yeah, that'd be great.

Peter: Okay, no problem. I'll put that together and then we'll talk to you in a little bit.

GMC Sierra Owner: Yeah, if you give me a little bit, maybe towards mid afternoon, I'll give you a call back.
