Can you open or lower the tailgate without opening bed cover?

Trying to find a cover that will allow me to use the auto tailgate function without having to open the bed cover for my fridge setup.

Thanks guys.

I have the BakFlip MX4 and I can use the remote open and manually close the tailgate without opening the cover. Very watertight as well. I also chose it because it has one of the highest weight ratings at 400 pounds.

Yes, I use my auto tailgate all the time. Can open and close tailgate without touching the roll up cover. You can also roll up the cover without opening the tailgate by using the the key.


I believe the weight rating is 500lbs dispersed.

Can the Fold-A-Cover G4 Elite or the BakFlip MX4 be painted?

I imagine the plastic could be painted but I do not know about the rubber, maybe a decal on it. Rubber needing flexibility is the biggest issue I see.

Absolutely. I actually like that over my old cover. My wife is pretty happy that she can use the key fob to open the back too.

Plus it lets me do stuff like this.....added some rigid ignite lights to the bed-cover rack

I can't decide which I like better, the setup or the pictures.

Hahahaha....thanks man. I gotta tell you...Iím super happy with the cover. Having the ability to both strap stuff on the rhino-rack and put my bikes up there without having to use a hitch mount (which gets in the way of the tailgate) I great.

Question neewbie peragon
Hi,
just picked up my 2018 and absolutely love it.
Since I spent the last month drooling all over this forum about accessories that I should buy, I already got my bed cover and fog lights.
I choose the peragon and will install during the next week, and post my impressions.
Is there any particular reason nobody consider it?
Bye
