What's the Best Deal I Can Get on a BAKFlip MX4 for a 2019 Toyota Tacoma?
Toyota Owner: Last night I was on your website looking at tonneau covers, and then this morning I got an email about it from Peter, so I'm kinda calling you back cause we wanted to know if they could sell me a tonneau cover.Sean: Alright, what kind of cover are you looking at, my friend?
Toyota Owner: Well, I picked up a 2019 Toyota Tacoma, and I was looking at the Bakflip the MX4.Sean: Okay.
Toyota Owner: That seems to be a good cover, and seems like it's the one that Toyota sells with theirs.Sean: What size bed do you have on that Tacoma?
Toyota Owner: It's the short bed, so a five foot bed.Sean: Do you have the tie down? There should have been some sort of a disclaimer on there though, because unfortunately on those Tacomas with those tie down rails, you do get a second hardware kit with it, or a different hardware kit rather, which does make that cover a little bit more price wise, shouldn't be too much more, though, let me look real quick here. Looks like it's extra twenty bucks.
Toyota Owner: Okay. So, is that the best deal you'll give me on that cover?
Sean: That is the best deal I show. We're already coming down about forty bucks there from our normal sale price which is already a hundred and some dollars less than retail.
Toyota Owner: Oh, okay. Hmm, I was just kind of curious. I mean I called Toyota's repair shop, and they had quoted me about the same thing, but I was just trying to see what the difference was between what you offered and what they offered.Sean: Right. If they've already quoted you and Peter's already quoted you, and that's a price that you feel comfortable paying, I would honor that quote if you want to place the order with me.
Toyota Owner: Okay. I could do that, and lemme ask you one other thing. And I notice you have the, you were asking about the financing thing, but is that just you take a credit card and you just take the payments out of it?Sean: No, we work with a company called Klarna and you can get set up with them if you checkout online. I can send you a link that you can go right to there, once you go through the process of putting in your ship to address, and all that stuff it'll ask you how you want to pay, you select Klarna, and it'll take you that whole process.
Toyota Owner: Oh, Okay. Okay. So, do I need to call you back on that, or what do I need to do?Sean: Nope, I can send it to you and then you're on your own from there, my friend.
Toyota Owner: Okay. All right, let's go ahead and do that.Sean: Alright. I'm gonna send this over now. I'd say give it two minutes and you should have it.
Toyota Owner: Okay. Can I have it sent to a different address than the billing address, cause I'd rather have it sent to the shop here than my home.Sean: Yeah, absolutely. It'll give you that option, as soon as you get that it'll give you an option to do shipping and billing address.
Toyota Owner: Okay, perfect thank you very much.Sean: You're welcome. Thank you and once I see it come through I actually place all the orders myself so I'll place it with them.
Does Extang or BAK Have the Best Tonneau Cover for a 2018 Ford F-150?
Ford F-150 Owner: I went and looked at that Extang. So, that one doesn't fold up all three sections, right? It just unfolds the back two, so it doesn't flip up against the back window?
Sean: Correct. So, if you plan on driving with it open very often, you can't do it. But, the good part about the Extang, I don't know if you looked at the install video, there's no rails. It just literally clamps on to the sides of your bed, so you can have thing off there in three minutes.
Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. What about the MX4, does that one come off fairly easy or no?
Sean: Yeah, they both come off fairly easy. The MX4, you probably wouldn't need to take it off. But, let's assume that you do, all you have to do is just lift the cover towards leaning up against the cab, and then reach your hand underneath and loosen the star knob that's underneath, and the elevator bolt that goes through the top of the cover will pop right out, and then the whole cover just lifts right off the rails. The covers are held on to the rails at the front with a bracket. The elevator bolt goes through the left and right side, and then star knobs tighten it down. So, it's an easy as removing those and it pop right off.
Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. But on the Extang do you think it's better as far as water resistance?
Sean: If you install it properly it does a pretty good job. With the MX4 you get the drain tubes for the bed of your truck. So, that means either using an existing hole in the very front. Older trucks used to have the black plastic piece, I'm not sure on the newer trucks. But, you just pop one of those out, or you drill small hole through there. Or you can actually drill it through the bed of your truck. But, a lot less people want to do that.
Ford F-150 Owner: Yeah. I wouldn't want to drill in the bed of my truck either.Sean: Right. I get it. But, in order to keep that water out, they do design them to where the water is supposed to go to the channels in the rails, which pushes it through the drain tubes, and out of the bed.
Ford F-150 Owner: Right. That's cool. I think maybe I'll stick with that MX4. Is the only difference between the MX4 and the G2 that one has 4 segments and the other has 3?Sean: No, the G2 and the MX4 are night and day. The G2 is going to be the shiny finish. The panels aren't as thick, so they're not as dent proof. Its only rated for 300 pounds, while the MX4 is 400. The MX4 has a dual-action tailgate seal. You can open and close the tailgate without having to open the last handle of the cover. So, yeah, I could go on and on. The MX4 is far better.
Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. That's all I needed to know. Okay, let me verify my bed length so I don't order this thing and find out how I was wrong.Sean: Yeah you don't want to shoot yourself in the foot.
Ford F-150 Owner: One of the reviews said you guys offer a tailgate seal kit?Sean: Yeah, I'll send you a tailgate seal. What was the truck again?
Ford F-150 Owner: Its a 2018 Ford F-150.Sean: Okay.
Ford F-150 Owner: So when I measure my bed, am I supposed to just measure the inside dimensions from the inside of the bed to the inside of the tailgate?Sean: Yeah, inside of the bowl and inside the tailgate, so the very front of your bed. And if it's the big crew, you know, with the full four doors, it could be a 5.7
Ford F-150 Owner: Yep. That's what I got. Well then let's go ahead and get the MX4 ordered.Sean: Okay I'll go ahead and get this shipped out. We should be good to go!
Ford F-150 Owner: Cool. Okay. Sounds good.
