Can I Order the BAKFlip MX4 for a 2011 Ford F150 With an 8 Foot Bed?
Ford F-150 Owner: I was calling to try and figure out what the best cover is for a 2011 Ford F150 with an 8 foot bed.Shawn: Do you want a folding cover?
Ford F-150 Owner: Yes, a folding one.Shawn: So there's a few different options. I don't know how much you've looked into these covers, but BakFlip is the main brand that we sell, or the best one on the market in my opinion. And they either have a shiny one or a matte black one, the matte black one's a little bit more, but honestly it's a great cover. Which one do you think you'd be more interested in?
Ford F-150 Owner: I don't know, I guess the matte one would be good. What's the difference, just paint?Shawn: Actually, you know what, I apologize. The matte black one you can't get that one on your truck because you have the eight foot bed. So, sorry about that, I guess I didn't even take that into consideration. So for a 2011, it is different paint, I mean it's powder coated differently, it's a heavier dutier, heavy duty cover. So, it's got a little bit better features than the original BakFlip G2. It's got a dual action tailgate seal to where you can open and close the tailgate without having to open up that last panel of your cover. So there's a few different things that make it better.
Ford F-150 Owner: What's the model you're talking about?
Shawn: The one I was talking bout is the MX4 but unfortunately like I said since you have the eight foot bed I can't get you that one. The G2 would be the one that I could get you and I emailed you a quote. It would be shipped for free and then there's no tax outside of Arizona.
Ford F-150 Owner: Ok well let me think about it. I do want a folding cover, but I'll look into the G2 a little more and call you back.
Shawn: Alright. Sounds good!
