This is the second BakFlip MX4 Hard Folding Truck Bed Tonneau Cover I've owned. I recently sold my old truck with the cover. Before that, I had a BakFlip G2. I love these covers because they are so versatile. I received the cover a day earlier than expected and It took about 45 minutes to install but I took my time. I can fold it up completely for full use of my truck bed, or I can fold up three sections and leave the fourth section down and snapped in, which is what I do when towing my Fifth Wheel. I like the extra security a hard tonneau cover provides because it can't be cut with a utility knife and the cover can't be opened easily when the tailgate is locked. There are two things that I wish were better. Some water will get in when there's a heavy rainstorm or you go to a high pressure car wash but that's true of all covers I believe. Second, after 12-18 months, the paint wears off in spots where the cover panels rub when folded up. This doesn't affect how the cover works and is only aesthetic. I would also like to note that having a tonneau cover on your truck will increase your fuel mileage. I have a 2020 Silverado 2500HD with a Duramax Diesel. I checked my fuel mileage before the cover was installed on a 50 mile trip and got 21.5MPG having cruise control set to 65MPH. Then I took the same trip after the cover was installed and got 23.9MPG. In both instances, the wind and road conditions were the same so I'm pretty happy about that. Of course this would be true of any bed cover but I wanted to make mention for those that were on the fence about whether to install a cover of any kind. You will save fuel. Overall, this is an excellent cover and I would recommend it without hesitation.
We definitely want to keep the bed of our work/recreation truck covered because of the "stuff" we keep in there, and the choices are pretty broad. We've had BakFlip truck covers on our last two trucks, and this MX4 model is the best of the three; lighter, just as strong, and closeable without dropping the tailgate first! We actually researched current truck bed cover offerings from several manufacturers, but knowing how much we liked and depended on our BakFlip, there really wasn't much left to the decision process. Secure, factory-look, and more than up to the task...highly recommended!
I think the key to getting a good bed cover is getting one that matches your needs. This one is perfect for my needs. It is low profile and looks great. The folding aspect works good. I think the prop bar clip could be better, but it doesn't affect use. Also, when I was unpacking, a piece of plastic wrapping caught on a corner piece and broke it off. I called and they are sending me a new piece for that. Overall, very happy with the product. Price was the best I could find anywhere (beware of the price match claims of small companies especially the one that promise to price match after the purchase).
This is a great quality hard folding cover that works especially well on trucks towing 5th wheel campers. The cover locks into several different positions, and the most forward one leaves plenty of room to connect the 5th wheel hitch without having to completely remove the cover. If you need to use the entire bed, the last fold position is vertical so the entire bed is usable.
I installed this cover on my 2020 GMC Sierra 3500 in just 45 minutes. The cover has a nice matte black finish that works well with the OEM bed rails. I had one strap buckle that looked like it was damaged during shipping and one quick call to BAK and I had a new one in two days. Their customer service was superior. The cover drain tubes fit right into some factory holes and I had not water in the bed after a trip to the car wash. Great cover when you can get it on sale.
This is my third bakflip. I buy a new truck ever few years and these only get better. Install is easy, took less then an hour from cutting open the box to doing something else. Nice improvements that are subtle to this over previous models of the mx4, is that the hardware, latch’s and bolts are all black now. Also, the prop holders are much nicer.
