I've had it for a year. Easy install, but more sturdy then you would think. Only complaint is that one of the plastic buckles broke. Otherwise, great product, as advertised

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Overall, I am very pleased with my BAKFlip MX4. It has held up well after 1 year. It works well and looks good. It matches my matte black accessories and trim. It was fairly easy to assemble but I did have some tight fitment issues near the cab where the cover connects to the rail. I really like the security of the hardtop and access through the tailgate. Water is generally kept out, but sometimes there are water drips near the tailgate depending on the angle parked. So this cover keeps the bed *mostly* dry.
etrailer was very fast to deliver my cover, and it came in good condition.

Solid performance. Only issue is with the glue holding the pads is failing

You mentioned that the glue holding the pads are failing. I wanted to see if you would be able to send a picture to show the locations.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I love the cover, very sturdy and has held up very nice for 1 year. The one issue is, I have a long bed Ram and when I fold it up against the cab, it covers the camera for the bed. This is a design flaw and if you use the bed camera when you have a load in the bed and the cover is folded all the way up, you can't use it.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


All is well....except, the caps at the joints of the folds keep popping out of place. leaving unsightly bludges in the top. With some work you can pop them back in place, sometimes easily sometimes not. Overall pleased, this is our 2nd BAKFlip and would purchase again.


Comments
I have gotten in contact with one of our installers and they suggested that if those components are popping out, they should be able to be glued in place.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


It was very easy to install even though I had never installed a tonneau cover before. One year later, the finish is still excellent. I never installed the drain tubes to divert any water from the outside but very little water ever infiltrates past the cover even when I wash the cover with my hose. One minor thing that can be an issue is when unlatching and latching the middle of the five panels, the end cap on the hinge near the bedrails sometimes disengages. The cover still closes if I didn't notice the disengagement but I'll just flip back and tuck the end cap back in to the hinge, no big deal. Overall very sturdy and durable. My neighbor wants one now.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Easy to install, and it holds up pretty well. The straps that hold it down when partially open can get in the way and one clip got broke. You have to be careful when loading big things with the top down that you don’t snag the straps, clips or cables. The prop rods are good but can get beat up by the loading process too. Also the knobs for the prop rod keeepers can fall off in the bed when the cover is closed. You need to make sure they are tight. Over all a great product, I love that it is strong, flat and solid and makes the whole bed secure. Also handy to set things on when working around mid the truck or for carrying stuff.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I have owned this cover for over a year and it has been excellent. It keeps the bed fairly dry as expected and I have had no mechanical issues with it as it still performs like new. I would say the only improvement I would suggest is better foam weather striping for the front of the bed as the original never stuck to the spray in liner very well and eventually came lose and then I just swapped with some similar weather striping I bought locally.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


Installation was easy, although it has never aligned perfectly. It has worked well, although it has been designed to be usable in the open position with the last panel (closest to cab) closed and the folded portion strapped into position. I bought it specifically for that so I could access my 5th hitch and tow, with a portion covered. It seems to be stressful on the cover to use it this way…all of the foam bumpers have worn off and have even put some dents in the cover. It’s a great concept, but could use some design tweaking.

The cover has been great. I would buy it again. The only gripe from me is that for some unknown reason, one screw rusted ( as shown in the attached photo ). Why one, and not the other 3 ?? who knows...

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


So after a year I am still loving this bed cover. Had the fiberglass version for my 2013 F-150 and loved it as well, that's why I purchased this one for my 2019 Super Duty, it was also the first accessory I purchased for it because I was so used to my other one and knew I couldn't live without it. I never installed the drain tubes on either covers and still haven't had water get it my bed. Also the folks at etrailer are always awesome! Thanks again!

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I am a huge fan of the BAKFlip. The installation was pretty straight forward and easy. Anybody with moderate mechanical ability can install. I think it took less than 2 hours. I live in a heavy snow area and had more than 24” of snow on it at one point and the product performed flawlessly.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I like the tonneau cover a lot! It's sturdy and helps keep belongings out of sight, out of mind. I had to cut the rail as it was about an inch too long for my truck but besides that the install was easy.


Comments
I reached out to the manufacturer and they said if you install the rails with the tailgate closed then the rails would sit on top of the tailgate, which is correct.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


This is the third MX4 that I have owned. This one is on Ford’s Maverick. The first two fit well but not perfect. I don’t really know if the slight issues were the fault of the truck or the cover. This cover is the best yet. Absolutely no leaks!! The fit to the tailgate is very uniform!! When ever I need a cover, I don’t even look at te competition. These are great covers.

  • Does BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover for 2019 Ram 1500 New Body Style Have Automatic Latching Panels
    The BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK448227 that fits your new-body style 2019 Ram 1500 with a 5-1/2 foot bed is the latest version of this tonneau cover. What it actually has are panels that latch in place automatically when they are lowered, which is what I believe you were referring to. This means when you lock the tailgate on your '19 Ram you will have a secure truck bed to keep its contents safe. The MX4 is a complete no-drill installation which is great for your truck; it will...

  • Does BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover Work w/ Spray-In Bedliner on 2020 Ram 1500 w/ 5-1/2 Foot Bed & RamBox
    The BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK448227RB for your 2020 Ram 1500 will work with the LineX spray-in bedliner you have. That said, you are going to want to be sure you clean it very well before applying the seal, but the manufacturer, BAK Industries, specifically states that the BAKFlip is designed to work with "any" spray-on bedliner like the LineX.

This ladder rack is designed to work in combination with inside-the-rail tonneau bed convers. The Gator EFX should work as long as it is mounted inside-the-rails on your truck bed.

  • Which Adarac Truck Ladder Rack is Compatible with the BAK Bakflip MX4
    I do have a solution that will allow you to use the BAKFlip MX4 on your 2020 Ram 1500, but the Adarac Custom Truck Ladder Rack # A70450 doesn't allow a hard roll cover to properly roll up because the arms are slanted inwards over the truck bed. Instead of the Adarac Custom, I recommend using the Adarac Pro Series # A4000965, since it is confirmed to work with a BAKFlip MX4.

    I took a closer look at the Mopar Tri-Fold Tonneau cover and I noticed that it covers the stake holes on your 2021 Ram 1500. The stake holes are the only way a ladder rack can be attached to this truck with this tonneau cover installed. You can always go with a different tonneau cover that will allow you to carry a ladder rack at the same time.

  • Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2022 Ram 1500 with 5-1/2 Foot RamBox with Utility Track System
    We do have some other options that will fit your application, but the Lomax Hard Tonneau Cover # LOM54FR that you referenced will not fit with the utility rails on your 2022 Ram 1500. For something that does fit the utility rails on your 5-1/2' RamBox bed I recommend checking out the BAKFlip G2 # BAK226227RB or MX4 # BAK448227RB. The G2 has the glossy aluminum finish while the MX4 has the durability of the aluminum but the matte finish so it's a little more subtle and sleek looking. These...

The Adarac Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A70450 or Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A4001235 will work with any soft roll-up tonneau cover that mounts inside the bed rails like the TruXedo Lo Pro Soft Roll-up Tonneau Cover part # TX585901.

  • Fitment of the Thule TracRac SR with BAKFlip MX4 on a 2020 Ram 1500 Short Bed without RamBox

Since you are absolutely correct that the BAKFlip's seals extends over the rails of the truck, they do interfere with the wide rails of the TracRac SR. Not only that, but since the TracRac SR has inward angles on the uprights, this causes rubbing against the sides of the panels when opening/closing...
