First off allow me to start with how I received the package, it was packed excellent, by the factory. Simple to unpack as well, there was no damage, to any of the materials and all the parts were there. The Shipping was fast, and that alone is a major plus.
I installed the bakflip HD tonneau on my 2010 Dodge Dakota Big horn crew cab, with a 63 inch bed. with the help of my Grand son
The final fit was perfect.
Am I happy with it, Yep “Happy as a Pig in slop“.
My dakota truck has a factory installed bed liner, [under rail, with cargo tie downs].
We did have to make some slight modification, to the liner, like cut out a couple slots for the rails of the bakflip to fit, plus remove the factory cargo tie down rails, etc. but even with the modifications it was still a simple installation.
I have noticed a big change driving with this bakflip installed, The truck to me seems to no longer get whipped around as much, when passed by semi, or a sudden gust of wind hits you in the side, just feels more stable.
I see no change with gas mileage, that amounts to mentioning, either plus or minus.
There is No way to lock the cover, so I ordered the pop lock, that installs on the tailgate,
I would recommend this, if for nothing more, than to keep the maggots from sticking there nose where it don't belong.
