Are you looking for a tonneau cover for your truck? Look no further than Bak Industries. They have soft, hard, retractable and a tool box that integrates. Buying a tonneau cover is a hard choice. I know it because I went through the deciding process about two years ago for my own truck. Here are some of the common questions I was asking myself all day long when I was shopping for my tonneau cover. Which company should I go with? What type of cover should I choose? Do I want a toolbox, and if so what kind of toolbox? Will I ever need the entire space of my truck bed? These are the most common questions everyone asks themselves.
After all the research I did, I ended up going with the company Bak Industries. I went with them based on their reputation and all the good remarks I was finding in the forums about Bak. So after I had the company narrowed down, I needed to figure out which cover was best for my needs and for my budget. Living in a city I knew I wanted a tonneau cover that was very secure. So I had it narrowed down to a retractable or a hard folding tonneau cover. I ended up going with the tri hard folding Bakflip G2 tonneau cover. I couldn’t be more pleased with it. It fit right into my budget and the security I was looking for. I wanted the flexibility of having to use my full bed space so that ruled out the retractable RollBak. The Bakflip G2 will easily come all the way off with the removal of two wingnuts hidden under the cover. I didn’t want a soft cover top because for me that isn’t the look I like so the next best option was a Bakflip tonneau cover. I ended up choosing the G2 for budget reasons (when comparing all the Bakflip models) and I love it.
Here are the options available for the hard folding tonneau covers by Bak (the BakFlip series):
BakFlip Fiber Max
BakFlip VP (Vinal Series)
All of these options integrate with the BakBox 2 toolbox which I’ll go over farther below in this article.
The next option you can choose is a hard rolling cover. This is actually pretty neat because you can get that roll up feature which being very secure at the same time. The tonneau cover latches shut so you know your cargo is safe. There isn’t any velcro or stitching to worry about. The cover has locking rails all the way down the edge of the bed. This also integrates with the BakBox 2 toolbox.
One of the other most popular Bak products out there right now is the Rollback Retractable truck bed cover. This is a nice tonneau cover. It is one of the more expensive models in Bak’s line line but worth every penny. The ONLY negative I see to this tonneau cover is that you can’t use the ENTIRE bed space very easily if needed, compared to lets say the Backflip G2. The G2 all held down by two large wing nuts so the entire tonneau cover can be lifted out very easily if needed.
Hopefully with the information above you have narrowed down to what model of Bak you want to put on your truck. Now the next step is to decide if you want a tool box. For me, the answer was easy, that was a for sure must have. Bak makes the BakBox 2 which is hidden underneath the cover so no one will ever know there is a tool box in the back of your truck. The nice thing is if you want to use the entire bed space you can easily remove the whole tool box or, it will fold up and lay flat up against the front of the bed.
