    I don't know why cahams5 keeps posting the same old comments about his BakFlip...there are 100's of positive reviews about the BakFlip all over the web and the truck forums. The product is solid and proven to last. All of the BakFlips are compatible with the Tacoma and mount over the rail system. There is now a tie down system available to work with the BakFlip rails as well. Please contact me directly @ 800 653-7089 ext. 704 My name is Morrie and I will be happy to talk to any of you guys who want more info.

    I have a Bakflip F1. Love it. Tough and durable. Installed the drain tubes and it is watertight. Dry bed, secure bed. Love it.

    I would shop around and the reason I keep posting my comments is they are true..after 2 of them..They are not water tight even with drain tubes and they do warp and they do fall apart at the rivot areas..so

    People should shop around, that's being smart.
    Continuing to post negative comments over and over is being a pest and actually reduces your credibility.

    My Bakflip cover does not leak and is great. I'm very satisfied with it.
    Its too bad you had a poor experience.

    If anyone has questions about the Bakflip, I have the F1. Send me a PM. I'd be happy to answer whatever questions you have.

    If anybody wants a Bakflip cover TALK TO MORRIE!!! I live in Ne and was in Ca and talked with Morrie once about eight months prior about the cover (Bakflip F1). I arrived in Ca for Christmas 2011 and made a last minute phone call to order the cover which I was able to pick up at the factory the next day. Morrie gave me the best price I had found and I searched for the eight months since our first email contact. The factory is large and very impressive when walking through and the covers seem to be made to order. There are new technologies developing with the Bak covers that I am interested to see, and Bak industries is not ignorant to the fact that they needed improvements from the first models. It seems as though Bak industries stands behind their products if there is a problem none of which I have had yet but had noticed in other forums. Morrie, I appreciate our conversations for this purchase and you thanking me for my service; thank you for your customer service. I have not had the opportunity to install the cover yet so I have no review of my own (Deployments seem to talk most of my time right now). I will give a full review when I get back. I do however like the flush look, the use of bed space and the dent resistancy.

    BakFlip F1 installed November 2010, straightforward installation. Only draw back, it would have been nice to not have to give up the utility of the stock Tacoma bed rail tie-down system. Very convenient to use, just remember to put tailgate up before closing the last panel.

    No issues with leakage, reasonably dry, but not as dry as the Camry or Corolla trunks (but not expected to be).

    Overall, very satisfied with the BakFlip F1 on my silver TRD Sport, and have recommended Bak tonneau covers to several friends.

    The all new Roll-X was introduced earlier this year and is the most waterproof, durable, and secure cover that BakIndustries has ever made. When open it does not block the back window like all of the BakFlips do. The bast bang for the buck of the BakFlip line up is either the BakFlip FiberMax or VP. Check out the cutting edge action Roll-X promo....the promo on youtube has had almost 35,000 views in just 3 weeks! We specialize in Bak's products and offer the friendliest and most product smart customer service of any online dealer. We are there for you before and after the sale....
    Thanks,

    O.K., I'm admiitidly late on posting on this one, just found the post based on one of my posts. I would like to say in advance this may be long winded, but I'm not compensated for any positive remarks an this is honest.

    I started out with an Extang Solid Fold with the hopes of putting a Bike Rack on top. In hindsight: Not possible without damaging the cover. Solid Fold is a great cover, easy install/removal, and looks great. Definately worth the money.

    Heard about BakFlip through a website, did research, and was hooked. I purchased the BakFlip CS (HD w/Rack) factory direct. Great customer service and pricing. Sidenote, there was an error on website, stating BakFlip CS included extra items: turns out items were supposed to cost extra, but I pointed out the website - once they confirmed their error, they honored the extras at no cost.

    My BakFlip arrived in a timely manner (around May, 2012), but there were cosmetic issues with the rail finish. I called customer service and told them, they offered to send me a new one or I could keep the one I had since the 3 Year Warranty covered the finish (I could have it replaced within that time if the finish worsened). I opted to keep it.

    Install was a snap, instructions were spot on, took less than 30 minutes by myself.

    Testing operation: Worked flawlessly - almost. I noticed the tailgate wasn't closing fully, but the latches did engage. After a closer look, I noticed that the ends extended a 1/4" too far (both rails). I had 3 options: (1) Request replacement, (2) Cut 1/4" off Tailgate End, or (3) cut 1/4" of Notch at forward portion. I chose Option 3 for a cleaner look, it was less time consuming than requesting a replacement and there was no need to cut any rubber gaskets. This option also allowed me to trim the overhang at the forward end (I felt overhang was a bit long, IMHO).

    Worked great and looked awesome (I will post pics later).

    Now the Bike Rack: I went with YAKIMA as they had an option that I felt would work with a little time, measurement, and work. I measured where I wanted to put the cross bar and drilled/tapped the rails. Used the YAKIMA Bolts and Blue LockTite. Looked and worked great.

    Now I have the best of all worlds: A Hard Tonneau Cover, Rack System, and Bike Rack that works together and all parts are easy on/off. There are drawbacks though, like with bikes on, I can only have the front rack on. That has nothing to do with the BakFlip or YAKIMA Designs, it's due to the length of the bikes and that the TACO DC has a shorter bed. Another is that I have to take the Bike Rack Cross Bars off to fold the BakFlip up, but I knew that ahead of time and expected it. That said, this is a truly modular system that takes minutes for me to convert it for tasks at hand.

    I also have to mention that I noticed Morrie is a TACO Owner, what better product support can you get than from a person who owns a product he makes equipment for? Just mu $0.02.

    Just joined today , nice writeups on the covers , thanks .
    My '08 came with an Access Limited from Agricover , love it ! Just a few drops around the tailgate from driving 70+ in a hard rain last week , otherwise stays bone dry and rolls up well out of the way . I'd never considered putting a cover on a pickup since it ruins the ability to haul , but this thing is downright cool . Nice part is it retains the factory tie-down system which is a great help , thanks Mr. Toyoda ....

    Hey all, just joined the forum today, got my first new tacoma about a month ago, and I'm loving it so far!

    Adrenaline66 -
    This is exactly what I was thinking of doing, and is why I've been scouring threads about the bakflip covers. Any chance you could post some pics on your bike rack setup? I was thinking of putting a set of the bolt top loaders mounted on the top of the panels of the bakflip and then using raingutter towers to put a set of crossbars on when I need the rack.

    I'm wondering if I can still fold the cover up with those brackets on there (I think I probably can) but was wondering how you did it?

    Thanks for the great info, looking forward to some pics if you're up for it!

    -Nathan

    So does the Bakflip work with the factory bedrail system?

    Hi Nathan,

    I will Post some pics tomorrow, the 7th in the evening. I think my system works great, but there may be issues the way you are thinking:

    The BakFlip is strong, but thin. If you drill into it, you may have leaks and void any warranties. Also, the panels wouldn't fold properly with the towers, the panels pretty much fold flat.

    If you go with the BakFlip CS, which comes with the rack, you can drill/tap the rails as I did. This also gives you the option of connecting the Bike Trays to the supplied rack. A little time and research, I'm sure you will come up with what's best for you.

    Again, I will post some more pics tomorrow.
