It wouldnt work good for me with the way it folds in. I fill the bed with stuff then shut the cover all the time. I have a Bakflip.

Guy I work with has one on his ram. It fits really well and seems to be a really nice cover. You will loose about a foot of bed space though.

I noticed that but I liked that you can take it off in about 30 seconds and since it is made of aluminum one person can move it easily.

Bakflips come off pretty easily as well.

I got the platinum package. dual deadbolts, stainless steel bolts, quick clamps, tailgate seal, and 3 year extended warranty. Just ordered. Can not wait to get it in. 898$ total shipped

I get it takes up bed space but for us our truck is vacation vehicle. We usually have luggage or tubs in the back of truck so we can slide those in and out easily without needing to open it up. Could also leave some in bed of truck locked up. For our usage I do not see that as a hindrance.

Looks a lot sturdier than a backflip, but like Fordracing said if you have a cooler or anything tall towards the front of the bed where it folds in you wouldn't be able to open it. I'll stick with my backflip even though it has its down falls too.

I ordered this for my 2015 toyota tundra.

I mentioned in the order i read positive things about the covers on Tundras.com and was curious to try a company with such great reputation for customer service.

Instead of 149$ for platinum package the final invoice showed 129$ and then gave me a 50$ discount on top of that. I got the platinum package shipped for 819$. 80$ off just like that.

Great start Peragon. Will definitely put some install pics and videos up once it is received.

Just curious but what are the down falls of the Bakflip?

Undercover is a nice option also. Their Flex cover looks similar to Bakflip but less pricey.

There are remote control bed covers, roll up canister style. I think Pace Edwards makes them.

I've had one of the Bak-Industries rolling covers for ~5 years or so now and have been happy with it. On my 5.5 foot bed I didn't want to give up any more of the already limited bed space when it's open, and I don't like how the back-flip blocks the back window when fully opened. The version I have is the Roll-X, but looks like they changed the name to Revolver or something:

Was camping at Tyler State Park recently and the Raccoons did a bit of a number on it, but they didn't get in!

Yup, I had the retrax and it was very nice.

Does anyone with a Bak bed cover need a Bak Box? I bought one from a forum, planning to buy a cover soon after but I decided against a bed cover and this Bak Box is just sitting here collecting dust....

I'm on my second one in four years. All the hardware seems to vibrate loose, the clips that store the rods when your aren't using them to prop it open last about 6 months and break. Any size hail will dent it, replaced my last one because of dents and a storm came through, didn't even hail enough to know it hailed and ended up with about 10 dents in the new one.

That being said I still like the covers and I was able to sell my dented one for more than I paid for the newer one I picked up used and all the new one needed was new $20 seals from bakflip

Coming up on a year with mine and I've been pretty happy with it. Haven't seen any issues with the hardware coming loose but I have had the rods get knocked around a little when I'm carrying firewood in the bed and have it stacked up kinda high.

My last truck that was stolen a few months ago had their roll up and I loved it so I decided to get the same one for my 07. I just bought the RevolverX2 last week for the same reasons.

I also didn't like how it leans against the back window(even though it does have pads on the cover to cushion the glass). The one demo they had was on a Tundra and it leaned against 3rd brake light, lol.

To be fair I'm not exactly easy on my trucks either, it sees some rough roads and about 20-25k miles a year.
