Rough 01 will become famous soon enough

Nice write up. I would say it was fair and honest although I think your mechanical ability/access to tools might be above average. I know if that had been me, I would've been stuck waiting to hear back from Bakflip.

That said, I purchased a G2 about 2 months ago for my QC with 6' bed. It installed fairly easily and I share your amazement/disappointment at the lock-rod holders. I know that my cover does get warm in the sun and we've had 90+ degree days here so far. I just couldn't justify the cost increase between the G2 and the F1 since I don't plan to load things on top of it and I can just "not touch it" when it's hot.

Thanks again for the write up and hopefully it'll give people the information they need to make informed decisions.
