Main reason why is when you need to remove the cover, you can remove every bit of the product with the release of 4 clamps, and no tracks remain in the way. Good luck with your purchase though!
The bakflip removes with 2 bolts that attache the cover to the rails. Each rail has 3 clamps. Not a big deal if you want to take it off.

The only negative threads I have read are in regards to the Bakflip for the CC with the Rambox. Since the Rambox beds have built in rails the bakflip utilizes these rails. I have seen a few threads about fitment issues because of this. On the Crew Cabs without the rambox you use the bakflip rails and I haven't seen any negative threads.
