I flipped it back like a tool box and hauled a load, including the dog with her large travel crate. Bags, Xttra large cooler, gas lawn trimmer, the works to the lake. No change in gas mileage in open assemble like a tool box look also.

I have noticed the Joints ( Hinges and seals ) like it when they are opened up and driven that way some miles. Believe it counter acts gravity sag and lets them reseat better.

I've had a BF fibermax for about 2 months. I don't have the drain hoses connected, but I don't get any water in the box liner, so I don't see a reason to hook them up. Great quality product, but if you take the time to think about the install and you will be much happier. The lower you mount the frame, the lower the lid rides and the tighter the seals fit. I had a G2 on my last truck- which is why I didn't hesitate to buy another.

A couple of years ago, I decided to put a tonneau on my 01 F250. I looked at what a few my friends had, but none of those would pass my muster.

The new cover had to be easily (and quickly completely) removed; no rollups, no rails, etc. Sometimes I need to use the whole box to haul stuff and wanted nothing to be in the way or to get damaged. Also, it needed to satisfactorily pass the touchless car wash leak test.

I did the research and got an Extang Trifecta Signature. Easy (and quick) to install and remove. Fit "like a glove." With a few minor adjustments (a bit of silicone), the leak test was passed too.

The Extang was the first addition when I got for my 2013 F150 Screw/Eco almost two months ago. So far, I've been very pleased with the service and flexibility of both of these covers.
