Ultraflex, Bakflip, or ?

Hello all,

Been wanting to grab a bedcover, but still on the fence as to which one. I'd really like for Undercover to make the Elite XL for the Titan but no such luck yet. The hard folding ones seem like a great idea too, but really want something rain proof. How are the ones you guys have bought working out?

I have the hard trifold from Nissan. Works fine. Doesn't leak too much (only noticed leaks during the car wash, but it hasn't rained yet since I've had the truck)

Re: Ultraflex, Bakflip, or ?

I have the OEM cover and I like it. Keeps the bed dry and is hard under the top for security.
A friend of mine has the tri-fold for his ram but it leaks into the box area. They have hose that you can attach to control the water flow but it sucks overall. Not sure if others are like this.

How water proof are the MX4 and Ultraflex?

I have a TruXedo TruXport Soft Roll-up Truck Bed Tonneau Cover that does not leak at all. Sure it doesn't have the security of a hard top, but I wasn't a fan of the bulky roller at the end for the rolltops and the fact that 1/3 of the bed would always be covered on the trifolds.

Re: Ultraflex, Bakflip, or ?

I also have the Bakflip MX4, and it's pretty dang water tight. There are obvious areas that leak, such as where the tailgate meets the bed, but even that doesn't leak much at all even with heavy rain. I wouldn't put permanent carpet back there, but for keeping luggage and stuff dry on rainy road trips it works perfectly.

Itís been very good, I put a dab of silicone on a couple of self drilling screws they used for the prop rods and nothing comes in from there now.
Since you also have one can you do me a favor and post a picture of the side bedrail where it meets the bulkhead wall taken from above, I have a small square about 1/4x1/4 open to the sky. That little bit goes straight through but donít understand why the front gasket doesnít cover that gap.

Not to hi-jack, but has anybody here put one of these covers on with the "Titan Boxes" in the bed?

Haven't had my Ultraflex long enough to drive through a rainstorm but I did wash my truck yesterday and didn't notice any leakage after.

Re: Ultraflex, Bakflip, or ?

If you just want a cover to protect from rain I'd suggest going with a cheaper soft cover. If you're looking for security for items in the bed go with a hard cover. I've had a cheap, soft tri-fold that I bought on craigslist for $100 for over a year, and it's held up well. I rarely get any water in the bed. We had torrential rain with 30-40mph winds here lately and there may have been a few wet spots, but nothing to where I'd be worried about something stored back there. I can also take it on/off in about 5 minutes so if I need the whole bed it's not a hassle. Just depends on if you want to spend a couple hundred or a thousand or more for a cover.

I have not gone through a car wash with it on, and I would not suggest doing so with a soft cover.

This is what I like about the OEM cover, it is very water tight because of the soft covering but then has hard panels below to help with the security part. No tonneau cover (with the exception of maybe fibreglass) will keep someone out that wants the contents badly enough.
