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


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


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


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


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.

Works great and 5th wheel hitch fits underneath and when folded up I can hitch up my trailer without removing cover. Only issue is the corner pieces on the end section came off and I can’t get manufacturer to help me get replacement.

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
$300.03
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.

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


I am so happy I purchased this BAKFlip. The installations were perfectly understandable which is a big deal to me and the actual installation was easily completed. I did need my wife to help tighten two screws but otherwise I completed the job without assistance in about one hour. After using the BAKFlip for approximately one year I haven't needed to make any adjustments to the product and it works perfectly and looks new. I believe having the BAKFlip has made my personal property in the truck bed more secure in addition to being out of sight. This product has exceeded my expectations and made me very happy. I would purchase this again without hesitation.

Keeps out the water well. However if you do a lot of dirt roads like I do a lot of dust still gets in. No regrets buying it.

Love the BAKFlip. Well-built and easy to work. I did notice, however, that I need to be careful with the foam padding that is attached with sticky tape. It does not always hold. As a result, I have to stick it back on. Will have to figure out a way to make them stick better. Otherwise, I love it!

Review from a similar BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover in Tonneau Covers


It's a straight forward assembly but photos of the assembly steps would be better than the illustrations.
NOTE: This model allows you to open and close the tailgate without lifting up the cover. The other models require you to lift the cover so the tailgate won't damage it.

Great cover holds up really well, no problems

  • Is BAKFlip MX4 for 2017 Ram 3500 with 8 Foot Bed a Tri-Fold or Quad-Fold Cover
    Since your 2017 Ram 3500 has an 8' bed the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48204 will be a quad-fold. Trucks that have a bed over 6' long will be quad-fold while trucks that have a bed under 6' long will be a tri-fold. I've sent an update to have the tri-fold part of our page corrected. The part 448204 is the BAK part number while 48204 is the exact same thing on our end, we just add the BAK letters in front of it for our labeling. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Recommended Quad Panel Hard Cover Tonneau Cover for 2011 Dodge Ram
    For you 2011 Dodge Ram, I have a recommendation for your 4 panel hard cover tonneau. If you have a 6-1/2 foot bed, I recommend the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48203. If you have an 8 foot bed, then you will want # BAK48204. This Tonneau has a quad-fold design and allows for partial or full bed access. It has automatically latching panels to give you a locked bed when your tailgate is closed and locked. The cover has aircraft-grade aluminum rails and a black powder coat finish....

  • BAKFlip Tonneau Cover That Fits 2019 Ram 3500 Long Bed with Companion Hitch
    The BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48204 that you referenced is confirmed as a fit for your 2019 Ram 3500 long bed with a new body style. As long as the highest point on your B and W Companion hitch part # BWRVK3600 is lower than the height of the vertical lip of the bed rails it will fit easily under the BAKFlip.

  • Will BAK Tonneau Cover from 2018 Ram 3500 Fit 2022 Ram 3500
    According to my research the BAK Revolver X4s # BAK74ZR and the BAKFlip MX4 # BAK48204 from a 2018 Ram 3500 will fit the 2022 model year as long as both have the same bed length and RamBox option (the ones listed above fit the 8' bed). The only thing I can think of is if your old truck didn't have the RamBox but your new truck does. If this is the case then you need the Revolver X4s # BAK93ZR or the BAKFlip MX4 # BAK48203RB depending on what style cover you currently have.

    We do have a ladder rack that is compatible with the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48204 on your 2017 Ram 3500 with an 8' bed. I recommend the Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack # A86FR because it sits outside mounting rails for your tonneau cover enough that nothing makes contact plus with the shape of the ladder rack uprights you can completely open the cover without having to adjust anything.
