Looks nice PawPaw, I'm pulling 11 ta 12 out of winter storage tomorrow. Spring is here and I'm itching to use it again.

It was great hauling a load of stuff under the Solid Fold cover and going thru the Hurricane Tunnel car wash. LOL

. 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 thought that too, until I looked at video on you tube pitching another brand of folding cover. The guy takes a 12'' piece of coat hangar, bends the tip and pops open Bak flip cover in about 5 seconds. I really can not decide which cover to buy. I mean each of different types has it's merits(other than snap covers, which make great landfill-nothing else). Nothing is secure, and to me, it's coming down to how much I want to spend. I have had a Bak flip G2 in the past, and it was an absolutely fantastic cover- but I found it used(barley) on CL, for $250(it was on a Ridgeline). At that price nothing would beat it! I need to find a deal like that for my new F150, but there are too many Ford guys out there looking for a deal like I am. Seriously, I am most likely to go with a Access Lorado, bought thru this form marketplace. I was quoted a REALLY good price, and I don't have to worry about coons in my neighborhood(yet)

My choice for the Solid Fold came down to dealer not having the Trifecta that fit mine, the fact it fold up flat to the box, would then haul much stuff and finally the ease of removal for large bulky loads. Less then 5 minutes total to remove the Solid Fold from the truck.

Extang Encore on my Super Crew.
Underneath it is a Tool box (from TSC) that sits on a 3" riser that I made, so I can still slide plywood or 2x4's or ??
I also installed Amp Research Bed steps to make it easy to access the box. I had all my brackets Line-X'ed when I had my bed done.
I also designed a quick removal system so I can remove the tool box in about 2 minutes and have full bed access.
Quite pleased with the results and love the Extang Encore cover!

I have the simple Truxedo. Love it. Not a fan of the Trifold style or any hard top cover.

Ive got the undercover se. Like it alot but when it gets really windy snow gets up in there and gets in the bed. And the lock likes to freeze up in the cold. But then again north dakota isnt helping it either.

Dang! I thought I was ready to buy a Bakflip VP but after checking out the Extang Encore I'm not so sure. I really like the idea of a locking front fold. I guess it's time to do more research.
