G2's aluminum, F1's got an aluminum underside with a FRP top. It's lighter, stronger, and won't dent. It's also got a 2 year warranty rather than a 1 year.

Depends on if you want to remove it or not. If you like the looks of some finished like the ARE LSX (color matched fiberglass) or not...

For me it was the ARE LSX

The only difference is the G2 has aluminium on the top and the F1 has a fiberglass on the top layer. No dents on fiberglass top side and a little stronger hold more weight on top of cover.

Not exactly. According toe BakFlip's site, the F1 has a 35% denser core than the G2 as well.

I have a question, from a performance aspect does a tonneau cover help you any? They claim to improve fuel mileage, which I can see since it doesn't go into your bed and have to come back out, but for speed does it help? Also, how well do these BakFlips fit up against a 2009+'s tail gate looks wise.

More kudos from me for the F1. I've had it for a few months now and am very happy with it. I use my truck bed quite a bit so it was essential to have a fold-up cover. My dog loves to ride in the bed also with one section folded up so he can escape underneath or let his ears flap in the wind. Careful though, when the wind catches the last lip of the cover going too fast, the dog can get a surprise bump on the head - poor guy.

When closed, the Bakflip fits near-flush with the top of the bed and a rubber flap seal is compressed onto the tailgate when closed. Looks pretty good in my opinion.

Here is the good page it compares all three of the BakFlip covers:

I own one and did not know all the differences. I still ask go with the F1 you won't be disappointed.

Just ordered a Bedrug for the bed of truck, I know my dogs are really going to like not sliding around on the slippery painted surface.

I've had a Bedrug in my last two trucks including this one. My dog really likes it and cargo stays put. Highly recommended.
