Default Bakflip HD Installed

I hadn't planned on installing the Bakflip until after my Line X/Rhino was in place but due to pressure from the boss (aka wife) to get the box out of the garage before our daughters birthday party next weekend I had to put it on the truck. Oh well.

Install was pretty simple, maybe 30 minutes. Only problem I had was one of the star nuts that Bak sent with the cover had bad threads in it. I solved that with a trip to Home Depot and picked up a 5/16 wing nut. I wanted a stainless one but the best they could do was a zinc plated version. I'll contact Bak this week and have them ship me a new one. I cut the drain tubes to about 6" in length and stuck them into the slot right just beneath the drainage valves.

Thanks to AJ @ for hooking me up with a good price on the cover.
