Just finished installing the Bak Roll-X on my 2012 Toyota Tacoma with 6' bed. I bought it from the seller 'hitchanything'. Shipping was quick and the seller had good communication.
Installation was pretty easy and came with good instructions. The 2012 Tacomas have accessory rails that this system makes use of. You no longer get use of the rails and the front bulkhead accessory rail has to be removed completely, but it's good that the cover makes use of the ones on the side for the install. No holes drilled into the truck but still the cover is rock solid.
I made the decision for the Roll-X because a guy at Bak told me it was the most leak proof of all their covers. Well after the install, I can see a few spots where it WILL leak, but I think I can caulk those and it will then be leakproof like I was told. The fit is good although I think it could be 1/2" shorter in overall length since the front end has to hang just a bit over the bulkhead. Also because of it being just a bit too long, the hand tightening knobs that bolt the cover to the inside of the truck bed were too close to the bulkhead making it difficult to turn. In the event I have to take the cover off completely, this will be a pain, so I plan to either grind these down smaller or replace them with standard wing nuts.
I'm hoping this cover will last as long as my Toyota pickup will. I've had other tonneau covers on other trucks and none lasted. The soft vinyl tonneau covers only last about 5 years before the vinyl falls apart. I also had a roll up style (Roll-n-Lock) that rolled up inside a cassette box inside the bed. Not only did this system rob valuable bed space with the cassette, it leaked and the mechanics started failing after about 4 years. Perhaps I could have fixed it, but traded the truck in.
Overall I give the Bak Roll X cover system a 9 out of 10. We'll see how it holds up over time. I'll update this review in a few weeks with some info on how leak proof it is.
