What Should I Know Before Installing an Undercover Ultra Flex on My 2017 Dodge Ram?
Dodge Ram Owner: I am interested in ordering a tonneau cover for a 2017 Dodge Ram with a 5 foot, seven inch bed.Peter: Okay.
Dodge Ram Owner: I'm looking for the UnderCover Ultra Flex. I'm looking at the email that you sent back to me.Peter: Okay. Yeah, I've got it. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.
Dodge Ram Owner: Okay. That is the one that... Let me read the email, because you sent me this email a while back, like in December. Yeah, it goes five foot, seven inch UnderCover Ultra Flex. Okay, yeah, yeah, yeah. That's the one. Okay, do you need my credit card or something for that?Peter: Yeah. I can get you going here. I'm going to get this shipped out today.
Dodge Ram Owner: Okay. Is there anything I should know before I try to install the cover?Peter: Yes, before you install it, just make sure that nothing was damaged in shipping.
Dodge Ram Owner: Okay. Is it common to find damage on a tonneau cover when it arrives?Peter: It's really rare for that to happen, but it does happen occassionally. But if anything were damaged, don't install it. Just call me, we'll take care of it.
What's the Difference Between the Roll N Lock Covers And Are They Easy to Install?
Toyota Tundra Owner: I'm interested in a Roll N Lock tonneau cover. Are the Roll N Locks something that would be easy to install?Peter: Yeah, the install guides are really good. They really are. And there are now YouTube videos that show you step by step. If you take your time, it's probably an hour install, but I don't think you're going to have much of an issue there. It's pretty straight forward.
Toyota Tundra Owner: Okay, great, great, great. Super. All right, well listen Peter, I appreciate your information. Let me think about this and figure out which one I really want to do. Now the difference in the two, in the M and A, is just that the M is vinyl over aluminum.Peter: Right.
Toyota Tundra Owner: And the A is a powder-coating surface over the aluminum.Peter: That's right. Yes, and just so you know, because some people ask and wonder about this, the vinyl on the M series is extremely durable. It's not like flimsy stuff that's going to cut or break down over time. It really does hold up well over time.
Toyota Tundra Owner: Does it? Okay, good. Well, that's, you know, that ... and there again, that's a concern. I mean, it's what, $300 ... nearly 300 more dollars for the other, but if the vinyl was going to crack and peel and all that, then it's worth the $300.
Toyota Tundra Owner: All right, well let me get some information on this and see what I think I can do and I definitely will be calling you back, okay?
How Difficult is a BAKFlip Tonneau Cover to Install on a 2019 Tacoma?
Tacoma Owner: You sent me an email, I think it was yesterday, concerning a BAKFlip for my 2019 Tacoma.Peter: Okay.
Tacoma Owner: And I just... I got a couple questions if you don't mind answering.Peter: Sure.
Tacoma Owner: So I had a Tundra before, and I had one of those hard traditional Tonneau covers, like paint to match type thing.Peter: Yeah.
Tacoma Owner: And I know... It was kind of just a pain to take off. You needed another person and stuff.Peter: Yeah.
Tacoma Owner: And I've seen these low profile ones like the BAKFlip. So I'm pretty certain that's what I want, but I don't want anything super glossy or anything. Kind of like that matte finish. And from what I've seen, I think the BAKFlip is what I want. I just don't know which one.Peter: So you don't like the glossy finish. You want a matte finish.
Tacoma Owner: Right.Peter: Okay.
Tacoma Owner: And I understand no Tonneau cover is going to be totally waterproof, and my other one wasn't. You had weatherstripping on it and stuff, but... to block out water for the most part. Are these things secure?Peter: They are. Yeah. When the tailgate is locked, the cover is locked and secure, and they're extremely water resistant. You're going to want to go with the BAKFlip MX4.
Tacoma Owner: Okay.Peter: The most popular, the best reviewed, and it has that nice textured matte black finish that looks really good.
Peter: Not Difficult at all. It's probably 30 minutes or less. They just clamp on. And then you install the drain tubes, and you're done. It's pretty simple.
Tacoma Owner: Okay. And how difficult are these things to install?
Tacoma Owner: So I have the BAK rail system on that. Does that work with that?Peter: It does.
Tacoma Owner: I'll be calling you back a bit later to place an order.Peter: Okay. Sounds good!
Do I Have to Drill Anything to Install an Extang Solid Fold 2.0 for a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500
Dodge Ram Owner: Quick question. I need to get a Tonneau cover for my truck. I just bought a truck, and the one from my old truck doesn't fit the new truck. And I need it because I'm going on vacation and I need to put all the luggage in the back and I have to have a cover. So I need it quickly.Shawn: Okay. No problem
Dodge Ram Owner: How long does shipping take to get one of these covers?Shawn: What kind of cover are you looking at?
Dodge Ram Owner: Well I like American Hard Tri-fold.Shawn: Okay. Let's see here. American Hard Tri-fold. Are you referring to like the Tonneau Covers USA?
Dodge Ram Owner: No, I saw one online somewhere else. All it says is American Hard Tri-fold Tonneau Cover. The problem is when I called the other place they were telling me that I can't get this from them until the end of next week.Shawn: What's the truck?
Dodge Ram Owner: It's a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500. It's a new model. The one with the 6 lug wheel, 5.7 bed.
Shawn: I don't think that's going to be something that I can get, unfortunately. We don't carry that.
Dodge Ram Owner: What else can you recommend?
Shawn: The only thing the closest I can get you for a hard tri-fold cover, and it's going to be night and day versus what you're looking at, but it's going to be way better quality, is the Extang Solid Fold. And that one goes for a few hundred bucks more.
Dodge Ram Owner: And how quickly can I get that one?
Shawn: Let me see.
Dodge Ram Owner: You're saying this a better cover?
Shawn: Yeah. The one you're looking at, I mean, I don't know, I might be biased. But I worked for the company that owns Extang for about 10 years. And yeah, they just make a great product. And the one you're looking at, I don't know who makes that. It looks just like Extang's soft folding cover, but they're saying it's a hard folding so I don't know. But based on your location it looks like it can ship tomorrow, and then arrive at you I'd say next day if not the following day.
Dodge Ram Owner: Is there a way to see how it clamps on underneath?
Shawn: Yeah. If you're on Extang's website, you can go to Solid Fold 2.0. Scroll down and you'll see installation, and there's a video right there. It's very simple though, man. You've got two clamps on the very front panel. And then you've got two in the rear by the tailgate. Essentially what you're going to do is the clamp is recessed into the cover. So you're going to grab it, pull it down, and then you're going to loosen it. It's got a little hook on there, so to speak. And it actually hooks on your rails.
Dodge Ram Owner: I mean, I don't have any rails or anything. So you're talking about the side of my bed?
Dodge Ram Owner: So I don't have to drill anything to install the cover?
Shawn: Nope. No, it's just got those little clamps. It's like a J is how I would describe them. You just loosen them up, and they clamp right onto the side. You don't even have to add an extra rail like if you were to buy a back flip or one of those that sit between the rails. They come with two separate rails that you have to clamp onto your bed rails. This doesn't do that.
Dodge Ram Owner: I see the other ones were actually like a vinyl. That American one. It's material, but it has a hard plate or something underneath it. So, it's actually, they call it a hard because it's got the hard bottom. But I don't want somebody to be able to cut into my back with a knife or something. Do you know what I mean?
Shawn: Yeah. No, you're not going to have that with this. You're going to have, it's an inch thick EnduraShield panel, which is their patented design there, that panel.
Dodge Ram Owner: The seams don't leak?
Shawn: No. From what I understand, this is the best folding cover for keeping water out of the bed since it sits on top of the rails, instead of between the rails like a lot of folding covers do. I'm going to go out on a limb and say you're going to like this a lot more. Because I'll tell you, even though you spent an extra couple hundred bucks, you're buying American made. You're not buying Chinese like that other stuff.
Dodge Ram Owner: Oh really? Oh good. Well, that sold it right there. Go ahead. Let's just go ahead and do it.
Shawn: And I'll get it placed in my distributor right away too. Just to make sure it makes it on tomorrows truck.
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: 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.
Ford F150 Owner: The BAKFlip G2 doesn't require any drilling for installation, right?Peter: That's right.
Ford F150 Owner: Okay, perfect. Hey. I appreciate your help.
