Yes and no. The rails for the BakFlip mount to the side bed rails, making them unusable as it covers the whole rail. The front rail is accessible, but the normal tie-downs need to be in place before the cover is put on, otherwise it is hard to re-position them. BakFlip does have a ring kit that mounts with the system ($50.00 extra) that gives you 4 tie down points as an option.

Adrenaline66 -

Thanks for the info, even those couple of pics that you posted already give me a good idea of what you've done. I really like the look of that system, but I don't really need the full height rack that comes with the CS. I wonder if it's possible for me to get the G2 plus a set of rails. I also wonder if Yakima or Thule has a set of feet that might slide into that rail system without additional drilling and tapping (thus allowing you to slide the bars as well).

Definitely would love to see a couple of close-up pics of how you mounted them to the rails so I can start thinking about how I might do it.

I think I'm fine with not being able to flip the cover open when I have the bars mounted on the rack, but I was thinking that it still might be able to open without too much issue with just the bolt-top loader brackets on it. They're pretty low-profile:

Good point on the warranty, though....

Thanks again, and looking forward to some more pics.

It takes me a long time to shop for something before I buy it. This thread was one of about a hundred I've read detailing all sort's of bed covers. The most intriguing part of it is seeing Morrie from Bak actually posting!!! Needless to say, I took his link over to the site to check them out for about the 20th time.

There is a interactive chat feature on his site, and I took advantage of it. I talked to a "Jordan" about the F1 and the Fibermax. Turns out the Bakflip F1 is exactly what I'm looking for, and he offered me a great deal on it! Originally it is priced at $929.88, but he said he could get it to me for $775 flat rate + free shipping!

So I had to ask about the tailgate locks of course, and he offered the manual Pop and Lock model for $50 flat and the automatic Dynolock model for $115 flat.

Such a good deal I had to try for one more. They have Weather Tech mats in their catalog too, and offered me the set of 4 for $155 when WT site has them for $169.

Needless to say, pending my clutch issue, I am about to get a bed cover, new lock, and floor mats :P

Searching for one myself. The new rollbak looks awesome. Locks. Waterproof. All aluminum so you can even stand on it. However it's pricey. Starting the change jar today.

I ordered a BAK Roll X from Morrie yesterday. He got me the best price anywhere. Looking forward to installing and reviewing it.

I bought a Gator FX3 same as Bakflip F1. Came in box labeled from BAK industries. Has same warranty. Only paid $720! I am loving it. I installed the Pop and Lock power tailgate lock to deter theft and will mod the part of the cover closest to the tailgate to address the coat hanger thieves.
