Way too many different opinions on this one.

I went with the Bakflip F1.

Cost about a grand in cash, several hours in frustration as the install instructions are shite, and the company doesn't care to help you at all, but the product when on the truck looks great.

I have the Rambox option and I went with the Bakflip VP and love it. Not a bad install and was around 900.

Who made you pay that much? Did you shop around?



You will find them all over eBay for well under $700 shipped for free.

I have the Tonno Pro hard fold, it was about $550. I purchase this unit because you don't have to install bed rails and I literally can remove it in less that 2 minutes. I would purchase it again.

You are correct. I rechecked the invoice. I mis-stated the price. I paid $712 w/shipping from Discount Auto Perf.
I was thinking of the Bakflip F1, which I almost ordered. Thanks for keeping me straight.

I put the Undercover Flex on mine. Very similar to the Bakflip. I am happy with the way it looks and works.

I have the Bak Flip F1 and am very happy with it. Bak Flip has other models that are also very good at less $$ than the F1 and of course their are other quality units out there. When you say hard tonneau cover, you have to determine whether you want a multi fold hard style, such as my Bak Flip F1, or a fiberglass painted to match truck color style. Both styles have their advantages and disadvantages. In the fiberglass styles you might consider Leer & ARE.
