    I am looking into buying a bed cover for my Baja. I have been looking at the Flex and the Bakflip. Does anyone have experience or reviews of these? Also do you lose the use of your rails and bed cleats?

    I have a fold-a-cover G4 elite. Locks on both ends. Never had any issues and keeps water out pretty well.

    Pros and cons with anything. G4 Elite is prob most secure with key locking mechanisms on both ends, but takes a bit to remove once installed if you need the whole bed. Extang Solid Fold (what I chose) installs/removes very easy, but locks down with clamps into the rails and not key locks. Very secure with a pop & lock on the tailgate. I looked at some of the others you mentioned, but found they are not secure at all. You can easily slip a hangar between the bed and cover to pull a wire and your inside in seconds even with a pop & lock.
