Anyone see or have the Bak Flip Cover? Had the Fold a Cover on my 2002 Ram, but my 2010 w/ Ram box they don't make as of now. Found Bak Flip the only hard folding Cover that makes for my Bed? Looking for some pros and cons before I order it?

I have the bakflip g2 on my MegaCab
Pros:
clean looking
almost waterproof.
easy install
easy to fold up
really nice being able to fold it up as opposed to "I'll be back in an hour cause I got to go home and take my hard cover off first"
reasonably secure storage.
Cons:
a bitch to fold with snow on it
If your truck sets high, it is harder to get to the cable releases to fold
almost waterproof.
When folded all the way forward it rests against your back window and blocks your rearview mirror view ( not that I use it)
it does intrude into your bed area by about a half inch each side. ( the tracks) and 6 inches in the very front

Over all, it is is the best cover of all the ones I have used in the 25 years.

Here's a few more differences between your FoldACover and Bakflip:

1. The Bakflip does not have a lock.
2. You can't just open the Bakflip from the cab side.
3. You have to open your tailgate in order to open the cover.

I had a fold a cover for 2002 Ram, but they do not have a solution for the Ram Box and the Bak Flip is the only one that I am considering. I see it has no lock on both ends, you have to constantly open the tailgate, and always from the back... My fold a cover after a few years with the weather my Locks pretty much failed, twisted my keys so, I ended up having to modify them so I can get in but keep it secure... The Bak Flip looks like it might be a bit more smoother with the way it flips over and over, where the fold a cover was more like open the front and/or back, or all the way open... Well, hopefully it works out well... thanks alot

Talked to a guy today at the parts supplier, he has had a bakflip now for 4 years. So I asked about his experiences with it, He opened it up for me and showed me the abuse he had put it through. Even though it was pretty banged up, the joints were still solid and flexible. the cables still taut, still looked pretty good externally. He was still happy with it (that made me feel really good about mine then)

I am in the market for a tonneau for my '09 with Rambox. Have come across three different manufacturers. Pace Edwards FM2082/TR5102, Bakflip has the G2, HD & F1, and Xtang has model # 56420. Anyone with info on these?

I am getting a roll-n-lock fr my 2011 Rambox. They are made in Pompano, FL. Distributed through Ideal Truck in Pompano. You might want to look into this before you buy. This is the most secure out of all of the ones you listed. The pickings are few since the Rambox is not as popular.

Good luck!

If your looking at Pace Edwards Jack Rabbit, you might want to consider a Roll-N-Lock, both are vinyl laminated aluminum. I prefer the Roll-N-Lock. If you're looking at the Pace Edwards Full Metal Jack Rabbit, you might take a look at TruckCoversUSA, both are made of powdercoated aluminum. I prefer the TCUSA.
