BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover chat price for Black Friday


Recommended Posts

I was looking at the BAKFlip MX4 for my truck the last couple weeks, saw that they were pretty much across the board at $809 today for Black Friday deal. I was on Bakflip dot com site and saw that chat window pop up saying to chat for discounts.. so pop it open and asked if the price they are showing for the MX4 was the best price they offer since most sites were selling it for that price...response was,  the chat price was $768.99(free shipping) out the door. So, jumped on that and should be seeing it in about a week or so. 

 

Anyone looking for a Tonneau Cover or looking at this one might want to try the chat feature and might get a better deal than advertised, maybe they do this all the time? But it was new to me and think I got a good deal on it.

 

Item I bought:

BAK-448121 - BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover - BAK-448121

A lot of us have had success ordering from MRTMotorsports on the forum here. Believe I got mine from him last year for around $750.

Not a bad deal though

How are you liking the fit and look of the cover. Any issues with leakage into the bad?

Took 20 minutes to install, another 2-3 minutes to readjust to fit. Fits perfect, very sleek nice design. Can hold myself standing on It (180 lbs)Super easy to clean up too. I’ve noticed some of the rubber stoppers have started to peel off, but I added 3M tape and it’s holding strong.

It’s not 100% waterproof, but 98% is what I’d say. Small amount comes in at the two top corners. Members have added foam here to basically make it 100% if that’s what you need.

I personally don’t, and I will keep this bad boy for a long time! The vinyl shines up nice too.

Thanks for the info. I'll grab some extra foam just in case.

I honestly think that if your cover leaks it wasnt properly installed. Follower directions closley ,especially on tightening the two fastener, knobs that go through the cover. Tighten them improperly/to tight and it will make impressions in the aluminum shell

You will get leaks with "all" covers at the tailgate , you will get water between the gaps at the side of the tailgate itself. Only way to keep this from happening is buy a tailgate gasket kit

Cool, thanks for that info. I'll make sure to pay attention to that part during install. I'll look at the tailgate gasket as well just in case I'll need it.

Ok, so I finally got around to installing it tonight. Question I have is, how many of you that have this one installed all 3 bumpers that it came with to protect the back window area when it's folded all the way up against it? I was installing the middle one and it seems that is all I needed, as I see the ones they show to add on the outside parts, the cover doesn't even touch the windows, I'd say a good 3/8" to 1/2" away from the window(back of cab) once I installed the bumper in the center. So, that's all the bumper I have installed for now, just the center one.

 

Also, how far did you let the rubber seal up by the cab, the one that goes over the weather strip seal, go over it. I have mine pretty much lined up with it and not really overlapping. I'll put up pictures once I get better shots during the day, as I get home and leave for work when it's dark.. :D

If the front seal isnt completly cover and overlapped by the cover you didnt put the seal in the proper place. Mine is covered by a good amount

Instructions say to put the seal at the very back edge of the bed

The seal needs to be at the very back edge of the front of the bed. 

 

I'm happy with my MX4, and Bakflip has solid customer service too. I had an issue with a bent rail; called them and sent a picture. 3 days later two new rails showed up at my door. 

 

Like others have said, expect water to get in around the tailgate. I've yet to find a solution.

      Thanks for the add. Greetings All!! 👋
      Going to start my membership, by asking what I hope is an easy question.
      On an online site, they have a deal on a power retractable tonneau cover that I really like, (like same price as non-powered), but I also just installed a Weather Guard tool box. 
      My hope/want is that I can put the retractable canister in back of the toolbox, (tailgate side) and then mount my onboard air tank under it, with the compressor in the toolbox.
      Finally my question is; will the electric cover stop at my tailgate automatically? I understand I have to cut the rails to accept the canister in the different location, but the cover stopping in the correct stop has me guessing what other mods I’ll have to do.
      please help ASAP, as I do not know how long this deals gonna last. Thank you!

      Hi All,
       
      I read through some threads about tonneau covers but there is a very specific criteria for 2019+ Denali especially as they have the multi pro tailgates and the carbon pro bedliners. I see there is a bakflip model and many of the expensive extractables, etc. I am looking specifically a soft tri-fold that does not interfere with the gate and hopefully does not require trimming the bed liner. I would even settle for a roll up. Only other requirement is needs to lock so it can only be released with the tailgate open. 
       
      Tell me what you got and what you got to work!

      Hey all, I'm trying to get in touch with fold-a-cover over a warranty issue. I've got a leaking latch that's draining straight into the bed caddy I have in it. I've been trying to get in touch with them for about a month now, tried previous email threads, the online form, calling two different numbers. But both numbers are disconnected and I've gotten no email responses. 
       
      Does anyone have a good contact number over there or know more about their situation? 
       
      Thanks in advance!

      We are upgrading to a 2020 GMC AT4 HD 3500 and should be delivered soon.
       
      Asking $47,000
       
      Follow this link for additional photos Facebook Marketplace ad
       
      So...Look no further for your next tow vehicle! Tow in style, tow with confidence!! This 2015 GMC Denali HD 2500 in Black Onyx has all the bells and whistles and more! She has only 52500 miles on her!
       
      This truck has been upgraded with BlueOx Gooseneck Hitch, a Second 7 Way connector in bed to secure your Gooseneck or Fifth-Wheel camper trailer wiring harness to help you tow in comfort and with confidence. It has also been upgraded with a Pop-A-Lock remote lock actuator for tailgate (unlocks tailgate when you unlock your truck). To help with those horrible GM headlights, this Denali has been upgraded with GTR Lighting Gen 5 HID 5000K headlights and Morimoto XB LED foglights...I cannot begin to tell you how much of a difference this has made! For just that little bit of oomph or MPG, this GMC has also been upgraded with the Banks Ram Air intake and Banks exhaust with chrome tip. Upgraded Shocks to BILSTEIN 5100 series shocks at 43500 miles.
       
      A Banks AutoMind programmer, is available and negotiable with purchase of this 2015 GMC Denali HD.
