I bought mine with a soft cover on it , it is o.k. we will see when it starts snowing how it holds up . I would rather have a solid tri-fold but they are not cheap

i got an undercover solid one - found it used on craigslist for about 350, needed it for a long road trip and had intended to sell it once that was done but I really like it and it's easy to remove if I need the full bed height. Hard to say what difference it makes for mpgs but it can't hurt given that its relatively lightweight

i like the tri fold you chose, was considering those and a hard/roll up style too but the deal I got on this one was too good to pass up

I just got my BakFlip from the outstanding deal in this thread:


http://www.f150forum.com/f59/slightl...covers-234244/




Like everybody else in the thread that has commented about their "blemish", mine was so minor I wouldn't even have noticed it if it didn't have a white circle around it. I was certainly happy to get a couple hundred $$$ off for a minor blemish!!

I have a Truxedo Truxport tonneau cover and really like it! I had one on my old truck and bought one for my new truck and I have no issues or complaints.

The Extang Trifecta the dealer was trying to sell me they found out wouldn't fit and they offered up the Extang Solid Fold on Sale. It flips back in about 30 seconds and fastens then it caries very easily. The lil woman and I instal / de-instal in about 15 minutes. I also like the way it travels open with a load of tall stuf back there. I don't have to worry so much about extremely cold winter weather.

I went with the BakFlip F1 with optional integrated BakBox. Love the cover, installation is a breeze, mostly water tight (little moisture in the corners), and it's rather lightweight yet durable. Installed the "Dee Zee tailgate assist" and "pop a lock" along with the cover to obtain power tailgate locking which is really a nice match with the BakFlip. Meaning with the cover closed and tailgate power locked (from the remote), it's entirely secure from the outside. A simple click of the remote to unlock the tailgate, open it and the Dee Zee lowers the gate effortlessly, and exposes the cover release if you want to open it up.

I've had the roll up Truxport for 6 months and really like it. Good quality and the price was right.

We pulled it off in 5 minutes, hauled 750 lbs of fence, installed it and cut down a bunch of brush. Loaded the brush and took it to landfill. Then it snowed 4" and box is back to snow 1/2 full. Dang it, new I should of put it right back on immediately.

Slayer just has the 1 piece tunoue(sp?) cover that came with the Sniper. However, when security became an issue, and i had to replace my tote with a locking tool box, I ended up cutting it off, and folding the excess under/
But it was all good as I was able to cut off the big hole a raccoon tore in it to get at some fish bait I had forgotten in there.
