Last two trucks I had Undercover. I will either do that again or possibly Diamondback.

Bak Industries RollBak
Looks good and has held up well over the past 6 years, though I'm choosing not to put the same one on the new Raptor.
The canister that the cover rolls up into does eat up a decent amount of bed volume, and with only a 5.5 foot bed to begin with, loosing an additional 9 inches or so has been a problem in the past.
The system is very water resistant, but despite the design including drain tubes, the canister still fills up with water as the cover ages and the drain tube inlets become clogged with debris, and it will slosh out into the bed or finally dribble out of the drain tubs as you drive.
Just looking for something different to try with the Raptor.

It doesn't appear any of those are flush mounted, they all stickup above the bedrails some. Is that correct?

All of the Bak Industries covers are very much flush-mount. It's one of their selling features.

Not waterproof, none of them are, but the RollBak is pretty water tight as they go. The biggest single problem as mentioned above, as that once the drain tubes plug, and they will after a few years, the canister holds water, then when you retrace the cover, put all your stuff in the bed, and then pull the cover out, it's literally dripping wet right onto all of the stuff you'd like to keep dry, thus my decision to try a true tri-fold on the new truck.
