Added the BakFlip MX4 bed cover today. Install is an absolute breeze with this setup. I had installed the same MX4 on my 2003 silverado 2500 and it took a bunch of modifying and customs shims to get it in. Not the case with the '20 F250. Fits like a glove!

Took me about an hour by myself just because I am a bit fastidious. Always nice to have a 2nd set of hands, but not necessary for this.

Also added a McGard tailgate lock thing. Basically a band clamp on steroids. 3 minute install, 1/4" driver only needed.

I see the MX4 is on sale for about $775 after rebate. What do you guys think? I'm looking at either hard fold or retractable. I have a soft fold now on the F150 and I don't like the flutter at highway speed.

MX4 is my favorite!
 
Another thing I love is that if I need every inch of the bed, the cover is very easy to remove completely. No tools. 2 mins max.
That's good to know. I was wondering just how fast and easy it was to remove when necessary. I assume the side rails stay on in that case?

Just ordered mine the other day. After seeing yours, I know I made the right choice! Looks great!

Yes. Two threaded wheel knib thingies hold it in place. Remove those, lift off the cover.
