Default F150 owners I need quick help.

So shopping for a quality bed cover. I ran into a like new ReTrax pro for $600. The issue I have is the guy that selling it can’t give me a straight answer, probably stolen! “Don’t ask don’t tell”
far as what kind of truck it came off of. He just gave me dimensions.
62” wide 66” long I left my Tape measure at my job site. So to get to the point, will that size fit a 2018 super crew 5.5 bed and what are the length and width of these truck beds. I’ve searched on Google for like 20 minutes and can’t find anything other than useless information.

Thanks.

Retrax covers have serial numbers, but I bet you won’t get a chance to see it. More than likely it’s somewhat on the up and up, probably bought online and was shipped two.

If you need a cheap bed cover go to Market Hall next Saturday. They are having Truck Fest and have a huge scratch and dent/ clearance area.

Your bed is actually 5.7" for the short bed. Convert that to inches and there you go. If the bed cover is within 2" of the measurement, it should fit ok. You measure from the bulkhead along the inside rail to the backside of the tailgate. Takes about 5 seconds.

Got this from paperwork that came with my Tonno Pro.

For around the same money this guy is asking, I'd get a brand new BAKFlip. Those things are tough and can hold a lot of surface weight if necessary.

AutoAnything is selling certain BAKFlip hard covers that will include a $100 manufacturer rebate card. I think one for a short bed is around $900 before the rebate. And you can use code:SPRING20 and get 20% off a ProZ ProFold Premium Tri-Fold , which is very similar to BAKFlip. That will land you in the $650 range.
