The BakFlip FiberMax tonneau cover takes the hard folding tonneau cover to a whole new level of performance, durability, and style. Bak Industries has made several models of the BakFlip cover over the years and the FiberMax is the pinnacle of all their research and development.
The Fibermax truck bed cover has several key features that set it above other covers on the market. With this cover you get a flush hinge system that allows less dust, snow, water, or other debris from penetrating the seams. Since the Fiber Max BakFlip folds all the way up and gives you full bed access, Bak has added beefed up rubber bumpers to give your paint, cab & window protection from shifting cargo. The fiberglass reinforced polymer top of the panels ensures that you won't pick up dings or dents, unlike other covers.
Bak has designed the FiberMax to be as consumer-friendly as possible and so they added rail guides which automatically set the height and direction of your side rails so your cover looks just like a professional mounted it, even if it's the first cover you've ever put on a truck! For those times when you need your full bed open and your window clear, Bak has given the FiberMax tonneau cover a quick release system, allowing you to take your tonneau cover on or off in seconds.
You can look at many other tonneau covers but you will be hard pressed to find anything that looks as good, functions as well, or is as durably constructed as a BakFlip FiberMax. Adding a FiberMax cover to your truck is an investment worth making today!
The cargo management, utili-track, or deck rail system options refer to the factory installed rail system designed to hold moveable cargo cleats along the inside of your truck bed. Please call us for further clarification.

|This product is great. My wife and I had gone to a furniture store just to look around. We ended up buying somethings and of course we had to put in the truck bed, but the cover was on.... No problem, just folded the flip cover up, put in the rods that held it in place against the back window. The furniture went right in and no hassle with the cover. Got home took out the furniture, folded down the flip cover shut the tailgate and latched down the last section of cover. The only problem was with the drain tubs being to big for the bed drain holes. I had to buy a reducing coupler to make it work..|
|this product was easy to install and provides a near watertight secure cover on the bed. With all its foldability it gives you full bed access. Pricy but worth it.|
|I've had my Fibermax for about 2 months now so I think I can offer a real review of the product now. I bought the Fibermax prior to having to move from Florida to Texas and needed a way to protect and secure the bed. I'd did a lot of research and finally settled on the BakFlip Fibermax, and I'm very glad I did. I love the fact that I can open the bed all the way, which is important for carrying my mountain bikes. I installed itin an about an hour and half by myself. The drain holes in the bed of the 2005 Silverado Crew Cab require a little enlarging to get the supplied drain holes to pass through but that was very easy to do. Since installing it I have driven several thousand miles and driven through rain and car washes and it has leaked almost nothing into the bed. I'm very happy with the product, it functions well and looks great.|
|suprisd at how easy it was to install & looks great|
|Very easy installation. Didn't time myself but it didn't take long. It was helpful that it came with the shims preinstalled. It's what I was hoping it would be. No rain yet so not sure about the drainage. I would prefer more than 3 brackets on each side but it seems ok. So far I love it, the true test will come in time. It seems to be pretty good quality. Solid. I would recommend it.|
|Installation was simple. Opens and lockswith ease, love the way it looks|
|When I got the cover put on the truck I could not figure out what about it justified an $800 price. It fits well and looks nice, but there really isn't anything "wow" about it. |
On the Pro side, it does look very good on the truck and rests nicely on the cargo rails in the bed. While it keeps most of the weather out, I'd advise against putting anything in the bed unprotected that absolutely can't get wet. It's poured rain and snows a few times since I installed it, and every time there's some leakage into the bed; not much, but is't still there.
On the negative:
- The instructions was labelled for a 2010 model, not my 2012. It's basically the same, but there were just enough differences to cause some difficulty. Additionally, the instructions are a single page of paper with about 30 1"x1.5" color photos and very abreviated written instructions. You can figure it out, but you shouldn't have to.
- Once you install the mounting brackets in the rail system, you lose the ability to move the cleats around without taking all the brackets out. It would be nice if the instructions made this fact clear so you could put the brackets where you want them. Oh, FYI, if you put the cleats where the instructions say, you'll have to do some shifting to get the rod brackets in place.
- The bolts for the rod brackets are too wide; probably a result of basing it on the 2010 model. It wasn't alot and I was able to widen the slot in the rail enough for the bolt but, again, for the money that's not something I should have had to do.
- The drain tubes at the rear of the track hang out into the cargo area. My guess is that they'll get hooked and pulled out more than once getting plywood and what not into the back.
- Finally, be prepared to spend some time tweaking the installation so that everything fits. I had to adjust all the brackets so the latches would fit and spend about 20-minutes trying to get the placement just right in the bed so the gaskets fit correctly on the front and back.
- You'll need some sealant for a couple of the seams and holes. This step is in the instructions, but no sealant is included. Again, for the money, would it have killed them to include a tube?
Overall, it's a nice product and does what I wanted it to do. It looks good on the truck and with my locking tailgate should keep things relatively safe back there. But when I got it out of the box and compare what was there with the charge on the credit card, I was left feeling a little let down.
|I bought a G2 for a friend, and got a F1 for my previous truck. When ordering this one from RealTruck, I made a mistake and ended up with the FiberMax instead of the F1. I didn't realize the mistake in time to change the order. |
But I was pleasantly surprised that the FiberMax looks identical to the F1 after installation and fits just aw well. It is definitely better than the G2, but not as sturdy when you stand on it as the F1.
The look and fit is perfect.
|this tonneau cover is well worth every penny spent. arrived in good condition, easy to install, keeps rain & snow out of my truck bed. period.|
|Overall a good product. Installation of the rails required cutouts of the bedliner. Exterior seals developed a "set where the cover folds during storage after manufacture. I assume these will eventually return to a flat normal state in time.|
