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


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


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


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.

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


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


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.

The best truck cover I’ve ever had.




by:

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


After a year of using the cover I found that there are a few things that could be improved and you can do some of these yourself.
The knobs for the cover that actually hold it into the bed-vibrate loose. I added my own lock washers. The poles that you use to hold the cover up when the cover is raised up against the back window-they also vibrate loose-so often that I just removed them and keep them under my seat. The little u-clip pole holders for the poles when not in use-they are too weak-often letting the poles jump out or fall out during normal road driving.
The cover itself is not waterproof --it sheds water away mostly however enough gets into the bed that you can not trust your items to be dry. Bag important stuff to keep it dry.
The rear weather seal slides back and forth too easily--sometimes working itself out about 2 inches until you see it and slide it back into place--i addenda small amount of silicone to stop this from moving.
The cover is strong, looks good and is mostly what I was looking for. Unfortunately I would not buy this again-even more because you have to relocate the bed accessory rails-which then limits the items you can buy for your truck because they are designed for the rails to be in the factory positions.
My next cover will be a roll up so that it allows visibility out of the back window. When this cover is flipped up to its final position it completely blocks the rear window. When I was looking at covers-my thought was well its the coolest looking cover and I can deal with not seeing out the back window--well that has changed. It is not practical. The price is high and there are many other options out there that are. My soft roll up tonneau cover was great-waterproof and I could have bought 6 of them for this price. If one was damaged it would have been better to just throw it away and order a replacement. Sorry guys-look elsewhere for a better cover.


Comments
Im sorry to hear about the issues youve had with your BAKFlip MX4. If youre looking to go back to a more traditional style, soft roll-up cover, I recommend checking out the Access TonnoSport # A22050279
Access TonnoSport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover
$303.45
because it checks a lot of the boxes of things you liked about your previous cover. The TonnoSport is a soft roll up cover that is on the affordable end of the spectrum. It also includes brackets to mount into the OEM rails while they are in their original location.

  • Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack Recommendation that Fits 2012 Chevy Silverado 6.5 Bed
    There's only one combination of ladder rack and tonneau cover we can recommend as a confirmed fit for your 2012 Chevy Silverado with a 6-1/2 foot bed. You'd need the sliding Thule TracRac SR part # TH43002XT-501 and the BAK Revolver part # BAK39101 which we know can roll up when not in use and not interfere with the base rails/uprights of the Thule TracRac. Your BAKFlip part # BAK48101 would most likely interfere with the base rails of the ladder rack as you go to open the cover.

  • Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack Options that Fits 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 6-1/2 ft Bed
    The issue that you'd most likely run into with the BakFlip you have # BAK48101 and the TracRac SR part # TH43002XT-501 is that the base rail of the TracRac rests slightly over the inside edge of the truck bed rails like you can see in attached picture which would interfere with your tonneau from opening. Bak does have their Revolver part # BAK62FR which does have a narrow enough cover that it would not interfere with the base rails. Or you could use your current tonneau with the Adarac...
