    Been looking at the MX4 for my 2017 Tacoma TRD OF... does anyone know of any other options for a The BakBox? I see it’s not available for the Tacoma just the Tundra... would love to have that option for the Tacoma.

  3. I have a Tonno Pro Trifold on my Tundra. It's 6+ years old and still looks good and is still tight. I will be buying the same thing when I get my Tacoma.

    I just put an Extang emax on my 2017 Sport. I got a 32% off deal from AutoAnything! I will post some pics soon.

    So I bought an Undercover Flex because I wanted something in a hard top that was more secure then a canvas top I had originally. The problem is it's had to find a tonneau cover that's pretty much flush with the top of the bed and still allows you to use the bed rail cleats. Well the Undercover uses the bed rail but I saw a way to mod them to make the rails usable. I order three new rails from Toyota which was about $30 a piece and installed them on top of the undercover side rails and the header went on the end of the cover. Anyways here's a couple of pics 20171106_133330.jpg 20171106_133259.jpg

    The tonneau cover attaches to the rails so when you have is attached you can't use the rail cleats. So I had the idea of ordering a new set of side rails and a new end rail that goes on the cab end of the bad. I then went to the hardware store and bought to longer bolts and installed them on the inside of the tonneau cover mounts so I could use the cleats when the tonneau top is open.

    I believe I had to install 1/4 inch spacers between the tonneau mount and the new rails and also had to cut down the head rail since it was a little to long. I would take more pics but a little to cold right now. But will when it warms up a bit.

    That is great. I have the uc flex as well and i like it except for losing the rail system. I will be doing this right away.

    I just ordered the tonneau pro. It's an inexpensive soft flip. I had one on my tundra for 4.5 years that I bought for a cheap cover until I decided on what I wanted, I ended up liking it so much I just stuck with it. The best thing with the tonneau pro is you can remove it in about 2 minutes by yourself if you ever need to. Cost is under 300 at auto anything.
