BAK Industries has literally transformed how truck owners protect their payload bay contents. Tonneau covers have been around for a while, but the California-based company has improved its materials, construction and function over time. BAK Industries now offers several lines of truck bed covers, including the BAKFlip MX4. Learn more about the MX4, its capabilities and how to determine if it will fit your pickup.
The MX4 Delivers Uncompromising Protection
The BAKFlip MX4 is one of the most popular BAK tonneau covers for a reason. Actually, there are several: durable materials, solid protection, simple installation and easy truck bed access. How does the MX4 accomplish these feats? Let’s break it down:
- Aluminum surfaced panels with heavy-duty foam cores
- Injection-molded latch housing
- Water-resistant EPDM outer rail seals
- Easy installation with no drilling required
- Fold-up cover secured with struts
- Side rails with integrated water channels
Together, these key attributes keep rain, snow, dust and debris away from your precious gear. With MX4’s strong construction and materials, it can handle up to 400 pounds of evenly distributed weight. Its unique design makes it both durable and lightweight — it weighs almost the same as its predecessor, the BAKFlip G2.
But Wait, There’s More!
You’re probably impressed at what you’ve seen so far, and this is just a short list of benefits in the feature-packed MX4. Its folding cover lifts up right behind your truck cabin, so you get 100% truck bed access. With its dual-action tailgate seal, you can shut the cover while your tailgate is open or closed. The BAKFlip MX4 also offers effortless installation — around one hour with your wrench and socket set. And thanks to auto-latch panels, anyone can easily open and close the cover.
The MX4 is big on performance, but it also scores high marks for its appearance. This cover sports a sleek, low-profile construction that looks great and keeps your rearview visible. That’s even true when secured open in a flipped and flat position with its Integrated Buckle System. The MX4’s attractive black matte powder coat finish is scratch-, dent- and UV-resistant. With enhanced rubber bumpers, the cover also doesn’t scratch the paint on the back of your truck cab.
Will the MX4 Fit Your Truck?
With all these benefits, you may be hoping by now that the BAKFlip MX4 fits your truck. Fortunately, MX4 covers fit many trucks on the road today. BAK Industries makes them in a wide range of sizes. Each is manufactured with a precise set of dimensions and assigned its own model number.
There’s even more good news — there’s a quick and easy way to find out if there’s a specific BAK tonneau cover made for your truck. Check out the BAK BAKFlip MX4 at your favorite off-road accessories dealer. You should see drop-down menus to select your vehicle’s year, make, model and submodel. After you’ve provided this info, your dealer’s site displays products that fit. All you need to do is select your cover, place your order, and you’re done.
