Add Security in Minutes With a BAKFlip Tonneau Cover

    Under Cover Tundra

    Possessing a bed is the defining feature of a pickup truck. Truck beds are useful for everything from carrying axles home from the junkyard, to hauling all of your camping gear, to even helping your second cousin move his furniture to a new house. The problem with an open truck bed is that it’s just as easy for anyone to take things out as it is for you to put things in. The solution to that problem is a camper shell, bed box, or tonneau cover.

    Our Toyota Tundra only has a 6-foot bed, so we didn’t want to make it even shorter with a bed box. Similarly, camper shells are useful to lock up your gear and even provide a place to sleep, but you aren’t going to haul a table saw or parts washer in the back of a truck with a camper shell. For this shop truck, a tonneau cover made the most sense. We picked the BAKFlip G2 model from BAK Industries, which installs in a matter of minutes with simple handtools. This hard folding tonneau cover keeps all of the bed space usable and retains easy access over the side of the bed, but also securely stores our gear behind the locking tailgate.
