Traditional tonneau covers are available as either a hard top or soft top. Unfortunately, they both have drawbacks, with hard tops limiting the amount of cargo that can be hauled and soft tops failing to provide an adequate level of security for valuable tools and other items.
But, for every problem, there’s a solution. And, that’s what Bak came up with when they designed the BAK BakFlip G2 tonneau cover. Flip it back for total bed access and rear window protection against oversized freight—the innovative locking arms secure the cover when it’s folded against your rear window. When you’re hauling valuables, fold it forward and lock it in place for an impenetrable layer of protection against thieves.
Tonneaus are constantly exposed to harsh weather and have to be durable enough to deflect it. So, the BakFlip features panels that are crafted from an EPS core that’s bonded on both sides to a tough aluminum exterior, producing a structure strong enough to support 200 lbs of distributed weight. The panels are connected with a seamless EPDM rubber seal that will outlast your truck and never leak or rust. Plus, it’s highly weather-resistant, won’t fade, warp or crack, and won’t shrink or expand with a change in temperature. In fact, BAK BackFlip tonneau covers and cockroaches may be the only things that survive global thermonuclear war.
The BAK tonneau cover mounts inside your bed rails for a sleek, low-profile fit and comes complete with all the necessary mounting hardware and instructions you’ll need. From start to finish, installing your BakFlip should take just a few minutes with basic hand tools—the simple clamp-on installation guarantees no drilling, welding or breaking a sweat required! And, when you need access to your entire bed, folding tonneau covers like the BakFlip come off as easy as they go on. Just loosen a couple of wing nuts, and it pops right off.
The slightly textured surface of the BAK tonneau cover matches the feel of most door handles, side-view mirrors and bed caps (and even those Pickup bed liners), no matter how custom.
One of the most important features, especially with gas prices remaining high, is the fuel efficiency Bak tonneau covers provide. As air passes over your cab, it flows into your empty truck bed, producing opposite force (also known as drag). Closed-air truck beds offer lower air resistance, which is why pro race trucks always roll with a tonneau cover. This reduction in drag creates a faster, more energy-efficient truck and can easily save several miles worth of gas on every trip. In fact, using an aerodynamic Bak truck bed cover could extend your gas mileage by up to 10 percent, and that’s money in the bank.
