When you've got both oversized freight and pintsized cargo that has to be hauled across town or across state lines, you need the BAK BAKFlip CS-F1 Contractor Series Tonneau Cover. This two-in-one combo comes complete with both the legendary BAKFlip F1 Tonneau and a sturdy overhead rack for the ultimate blend of capacity and security.
The heart and soul of your BAKFlip CS is the F1 Tonneau Cover. Custom crafted for your pickup, it's built from an impressively rigid EPS core set between a layer of fiberglass-reinforced polymer up top and a layer of epoxy-coated aluminum down below. This tri-layer construction makes it strong enough to support up to 400lbs of evenly distributed weight. And, effortlessly folds over along seamless EPDM rubber hinges, which deliver a completely leak-proof seal.
While your tools, paint cans and fishing gear all fit under your BAKFlip F1 Tonneau, there's still plenty of room up top for lumber, PVC piping and kayaks. Rated to support up to 500lbs of gear, the BAKFlip CS Rack adjusts back and forth to support long and short loads. Plus, the tie downs slide along the same rails, creating the perfect anchor point for latching down everything from ladders to drywall. Best of all, BAK backs your BAKFlip CS-F1 Contractor Series Tonneau Cover with a 3-year warranty.

ALL in all a pretty nice tonneau and rack. Tonneau works flawlessly and looks great. the fit/finish of the Tonneau on the underside isnt the greatest but you cant see it when closed. I have 2 major complaints...... 1- this is a very expensive rack/tonneau dont you think it would come with some type of load stops for the rack rails? nope they are extra. 2- the allen wrench they give you with the kit doesnt work with the F150 configuration. once installed you cannot use the allen wrench to loosen the rack uprights. the allen Wrench shenk needs to be longer. just seems like for the price they could give you a tool that will actully acomplish the job. like i said i am overall very happy with the rack/tonneau.

The cover is an excellent product but needs better quality inspection. Two bolts had marred threads and had to be rethreaded. The rack looks great but seems flemsy. Attention to detail is lacking but if you have the right tools and mechanical ability to repair the problem parts it is a great cover.

The bakflip cs-f1 is exactly what I expected.from the reviews and videos. Great product. The rack system is very flimsy. Like I had read. Yet the rest of the product is great easy install took about 1/2 hour. The sliding stops on rack don't fit. And the tie downs should be chrome or black to look flawless not like an after thought. But over all very pleased

This practically your only choice when looking for an integrated tonneau cover and rack system. After installing it, I was impressed. Interestingly, there were no instructions. I guess they expect you to watch the on-line video(s) on installation from their web site. You can also view them on YouTube. Installation was straight forward and easy. Everything fit like a glove for my 2013, RAM 1500. I like the locking feature and easy fold up. Overall, worth the price.
