BAKFlip MX4 vs Gator EFX
Originally published on Oct 15, 2020 | Updated on Aug 23, 2023
Upgrading your truck with a hard-folding tonneau cover adds security and weather protection for cargo in the truck bed. To help you choose the best truck bed cover for your needs, we examine the similarities and differences between the BAKFlip MX4 and Gator EFX tonneau covers.
Materials: The cover is made of durable, corrosion-resistant aluminum.
Locks with Tailgate: Close the cover, lock your tailgate, and gear stowed in your truck bed will be secure.
Water Resistant: Water is channeled along the rails and emptied out through drain tubes to improve water resistance.
Folding Cover: The cover folds toward the bulkhead to provide bed access.
Full bed access is available by folding the cover against your truck cab.
The cover exposes 2/3 of your bed when opened.
The MX4’s panels are finished in matte black.
The Gator EFX has a semi-gloss finish.
The dual-action tailgate seal allows you to operate your tailgate independently of the tonneau cover.
The cover uses a flap seal at the tailgate. To ensure proper water resistance, the cover should be closed after the tailgate is shut.
