The BAKFlip MX4 features aluminum panels that are finished in a UV resistant, matte black powder coat. The aluminum provides structure and rigidity while the durable powder coat finish protects against the harsh UV rays. The MX4 uses EPDM rubber seals and hinges so it provides maximum security from rain and snow. The tonneau rails also aid in this by channeling excess water through the provided drain tubes.
The BAKFlip MX4 installs easily with no drilling thanks to the clamp-on design. You only need basic tools like a socket wrench to complete the installation on most vehicles. A great feature the MX4 offers is the ability to gain full bed access without having to remove the cover completely. You simply fold the cover panel by panel to the front of the bed, then lean it against the cab and secure it with the prop rods that are mounted to the rails. The truck can safely be driven with the cover in this position at highway speeds. Closing the cover is simple due to the automatic latching system that will secure the cover as you fold each panel against the bed rails.
BAK Industries warrants this cover against any manufacturing defects for a period of 3 years. The cover also is made in the USA so you can rest easy knowing the quality is second to none.
Manufactured by BAK Industries, a Truck Hero company.

|I have only had the cover installed for a little over a month now but so far I am very pleased. The low profile of the cover provides a very clean look with the Ram Box sides. The install was relatively easy and only took me a while because I'm a perfectionist. It's very secure and sturdy, so much so, I'm tempted to stand on it (maybe I'll try my daughter, LOL). Two minor complaints prevent me from rating it perfect:|
1. The hold-down latches have a little horizontal adjustment on them but even when extended completely they just catch the side clips. As I said, currently secure but before too much time passes I'll probably add some spacer washers behind the clips so the latch/clip mating has more contact.
2. The drains for the Ram Box rails are cheap flimsy toss-ins. I can almost picture a product designer working for weeks on this high quality cover and in the last hours before going to production someone asks "Hey, what are you going to do about the small amounts of water that sneak in the sides?" Response: "Oh, crap!"
As titled, almost perfect... so far.

|Think this is going to work out great. I haven’t driven my Ram in the rain yet, with the cover installed, so I can’t vouch for water tightness at this time. Works out great for securing items in the bed, when we’re out running errands. It looks great on the Ram and is easy to use.|
|Had it awhile still looks and works great|
|These are nice and easy to install. I had a lower model on my 2013 Ram but when I bought a new 2018 Ram I upgraded to the BAKFlip MX4 and don't regret it. I love the fact you don't have to open the top to close the tailgate on this version. It well constructed and strong I like it!|
|I purchased this for my husband on Black Friday and I received it in a week. The box was very discreet and when he opened it, his eyes lit up. He stated installing it was a breeze and it’s now 1/11/18 and it’s looks great as ever. My husband loves his cover and he really loves that it’s flushed. For me I was thankful that a payment plan was an option. It’s definitely helped with the stresses of Christmas. Thank you thank you thank you for having such a grade A product and allowing me to put that smile on my husband’s face.|

|Looks better than most covers and this is the second truck we have put one on. I am a musician so security is an issue and I have never had a problem with stowing gear safely with tonneau cover. Wish it was 100% waterproof (it is close) but other than that it is great!|
