    Puzzled? Yes, $810 dollars saved is $810 dollars earned. I too wonder what that cover is for just $250.

    Bogunn, the BAKFlip is much flatter than the factory cover and the forward and rear ends don't quite smooth fit to the bed panels, allowing potential for water entry. And yes, my experience is that water does get in.

    It’s a PITA and not worth it IMO. If it wasn’t on there from factory you did right by getting the Bakflip MX4.

    I don’t shop at Walmart. :)
    I’ll go to harbor freight or bi-mart.
    I still feel like it’s a PITA to cut up my bed rail to install a mediocre tonneau cover that you have to remove every time you want to have full access to your bed.

    You are just cutting one line on four sides for the hinge on each bracket, 10 min you shuld be done.

    looked at the available options and bought an Extang Encore. Like the ability to open the front section, and that the bed rail system is retained. We'll see how weather tight it is, but I like it so far.

    I have the factory cover but if you want the best I suggest diamond black...pricey but amazing and will outlast most
