BakFlip Tonneau Covers

BakFlip HD Tonneau CoverBAK Industries truly blew the tonneau cover game wide open with the release of the BakFlip Tonneau Cover. By combining the security and weather protection of a Hard-Top Tonneau Cover with the convenience and bed access of a Folding Bed Cover, the folks at BAK proved that you really could have your cake and eat it too.

BakFlip Tonneau Covers all have virtually the same rugged design features, from injection-molded latch housings and hardware to integrated drain channels that send rainwater away from the bed. Its modular latching and locking system stops thieves from getting to your stuff, and when you need to use your whole bed the BakFlip folds all the way open and stows behind your rear window. Plus, every model is custom-designed to your exact truck bed, for a precise fit and a quick installation.

Choose from three different models, each with slightly different materials and finishes: The classic BakFlip G2 features aluminum panels, while the BakFlip HD Tonneau Cover utilizes aircraft-grade aluminum frames and a modified core material to make it both lighter and stronger. The new BakFlip FiberMax is built with fiberglass-reinforced polymer on top and aluminum on the underside for the most optimal weight/strength stats, and its high-density EPS core stays cool to the touch. Every model installs in just minutes and is backed with up a 1 or 2-Year Warranty.

UnderCover Flex Tonneau Covers

Undercover Flex Tonneau CoverSince its introduction several years ago, the BakFlip's revolutionary design has influenced a new generation of hard folding truck bed covers. Among them is the UnderCover Flex Tonneau Cover. The Flex is similarly designed with a series of folding panels that open up to provide full bed access. Its fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) panels provide awesome strength and impact resistance while being much lighter than aluminum panels.

One key feature of Under Cover Flex Tonneau Covers is their easy installation. A simple clamp design eliminates the need for drilling, and the cover doesn't interfere with stake pockets or rails. Weather protection is another strength - rubber seals, drain tubes, and solid hinges ensure that your gear will stay dry and safe, in any weather.
