Default Bed Cover recommendation

Buying a newer pickup and looking at putting a bed cover on it. I've never had one and want to get some ideas. Looking at the flip up covers and not interested in the roll up styles or the full bed, one-piece covers.

Then you have decided what you want. A flip cover. No input needed

Same here on the Bakflip. It probably won’t last 10 years though. We only hold onto a vehicle for 3 years max, so far so good.

My dad runs the bakflip and I picked up a 10 year old Extang Solid fold. The Extang keeps things much drier than the bakflip.

Additionally the Extang fits on top of the bed rails so you don’t have clearance issues with tall coolers.

Finally, the fact that you are supposed to open the cover, shut the tail gate, and the. Shut the cover is quite annoying. Therefore I am a complete believer in the Extang.

It is ok. When I first had it, it would leak minimally at the tailgate.

Now ~2 years later, that rubber has warped some where it overlaps the tailgate and quite a bit of water gets in. Not bad, but you don’t want anything back there sitting on the bed floor that you don’t want wet.

It does better while running the road than just sitting.

Gotcha. Kind of seems to be the consensus on all of them. After awhile water is gonna find a way on every brand. Still seems to be at the top of the most lists though. By chance has anyone tried to fit 150 qt igloo under one? Wondering if they fit for out of state hunting trips.

Had a MX4 backflip on last truck, was great. Current ride has retrax pro, it’s fantastic.

Im about done with bed covers. I have had 1 extang and 2 backflips. They have all leaked. The backflips leaked the worst. Extang only leaked at the tailgate. I think I will go with a shell next time. It also has added storage when needed.

TruckCovers USA. They are expensive but very solid.

I have one on my 2014 F250 and it is still in excellent shape.

I have an undercover armourflex on my ram 2500 and it has been solid. Outside panels have line-x and it is very durable. Very pleased with it.

I have had 3 Extang Trifecta for 3 different trucks. They have never leaked. I like the ability to completely remove the cover and use the full bed.

I went with the Gator FX, which is the exact same as the Bakflip MX4 (which I had on my last truck). I love that it can fold all the way up against the cab if you need the full bed.
Same great Bakflip customer service that goes above and beyond to make sure you have a perfect product. Can't recommend them enough.

Bakflip MX4 is very nice. Have one on my 19' Tundra. Had a Fiberglass cover on my 08 Tundra. It was very dry but less friendly when hauling anything tall.

I think itís more of brand suggestions.

I too am looking at getting one and if someone has had great luck with a $350 option over a $1000 option that would be good to know.
