I was looking on 3rd Strike's site and found a spoiler that I really like, but I'm curious if it'd fit with a tonneau. I'm really liking the BAK Flip G2 because of its extremely low profile design. I can't get a good idea of what the front side of the spoiler looks like and how much it might protrude into the area a tonneau would need to latch. If it isn't going to work, do you all have any suggestions on a tonneau that might work with this spoiler?

That spoiler will not work with a soft tonneau or other flat style covers. It will work on a hard tonneau like the Undercover.

Thats the one I saw years ago that I thought looked pretty dang good, but its still a bit to high a profile for me(the tonneau). I think I'll just go with out the spoiler and get the Bak Flip G2. It has the lowest profile I've seen on a tonneau, and I want a low profile tonneau more then I want a spoiler.

Yes sir, how many do you want??? And actually, the new smooth Undercover has a slight spoiler built into it...

If you like the Bakflip, take a look at the new Undercover Flex.
