I just ordered the Bak X4s. On the website its got the annoying chat now thing with a banner tell you to ask for "hidden discounts". I hate that kind of thing but did it and the guy is giving me an additional $110 discount.

I like that its a "hard" cover and youtube seems to think its a pretty decent one. The one complaint is that in the winter when things freeze it might be hard to roll it. Same idea to what @xj_nate said earlier. Thinking about that and my situation I feel that I should be alright. I park in my home garage which is insulated well and it hasn't really gotten below 45-50 and I use an underground parking garage at work.

The trade off to having a folder obstruct the rear view when opened vs dealing with a potentially frozen top seemed worth it to me.

I bought a cheap vinyl roll up off Amazon for my cover. For the money I feel it is the best overall value. I think it was $170 and has held up fine for 6 years now, although last year I did have the velcro restitched down the side. It doesn't seal amazing at the tailgate, but it does well enough.

I looked at others back then and couldn't justify the extra few hundred $ for others. I did go with the vinyl roll up for most of the reasons posted. It allows full use of the bed without blocking the view.....it's been great and I feel for the $ it can't really be beat.

I like that it has slats in it. I've never seen that before- probably because I've never looked at them.

Maybe I'm weird but I've never been bugged by my folding cover blocking the rear window. I have mirrors and a back-up cam. Regardless I'm sure you'll love having a cover as it really makes for usable space, like an SUV has. My buddy makes fun of mine and calls it a minivan conversion lol

Kind of ridiculous but it arrived this morning. It installed easy but the pass side is latching and hovering 1/8" higher than the driver side so its not touching or sealing against the tailgate. I double check the clamps and they are tight and I pushed down from above as much as I could (per the instructions). It doesn't look like the rail is bent so I'm not sure what the deal is.
