BAK Industries’ tonneau covers earn consistently positive reviews from off-roaders. Take a look at top-performing models like the BAKFlip MX4 and it’s easy to see why. Durable materials and innovative designs make these covers long-lasting, protective and simple to use. Not only that, the MX4’s sleek looks make it an attractive upgrade to any pickup truck.
But like many smart shoppers, you want to do your homework before you buy. No worries – this brief guide offers the lowdown on the BAK BAKFlip MX4. Keep reading to learn about its top features
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
You may already know about the BAKFlip G2, the predecessor to the BAKFlip MX4. The G2 sported many features that were also included in the MX4 – powder-coated panels, no-drill installation and full truck bed access. But when designing the MX4, BAK Industries make a few key enhancements.
The company’s first challenge with the BAKFlip MX4 was improving strength without adding more weight. The solution was simple: aluminum surfaced panels containing a heavy-duty foam core. This made the MX4 sturdier than the G2 but kept its construction as lightweight as possible. The MX4 can also handle heavier cargo – 400 pounds of evenly distributed weight versus the G2’s 300-pound capacity.
The MX4 delivers superior protection against moisture, debris and UV rays. Its rails feature a built-in drainage system that channels water away from your truck bed. The cover also sports durable EPDM rubber seals around the rails and hinges, blocking exterior moisture from getting inside. This cover’s protective black matte powder coat finish resists scratches, dents and UV rays – an upgrade from the G2.
The BAKFlip MX4 includes another new feature – a dual-action tailgate seal. With previous tonneau covers, you couldn’t close the tailgate without the cover being in the open position. But thanks to the tailgate seal, you can shut the tailgate whether your MX4 cover is open or closed.
Convenient and Easy To Use
Having complete truck bed access is vital no matter where you are. Like the G2, the MX4’s cover completely opens and secures in place with the included struts. It also comes with enhanced rubber bumpers, ensuring that the cover doesn’t scratch your truck cab’s paint when it’s raised and secured.
Everything about the MX4 is designed to save you time and effort – and that includes installation and operation. Similar to other BAK truck bed covers, the MX4 features bolt-on installation. With a wrench and socket set plus an hour of your time, your new cover is mounted and ready to use. And once it’s on, getting to your gear is a cinch. Its string latch lets you open and close the cover with ease, while auto-latching panels secure it in place.
Where To Find the BAKFlip MX4
Now that you’ve seen the BAKFlip MX4’s top features, it’s time to go shopping. You can find the MX4 and other BAK truck bed covers at a reputable off-road parts and accessories dealer. With a few easy steps, you can find one that fits your truck. Most retailer’s websites let you narrow your selections by year, make, model and submodel.
