Just for informative purposes, I've been told the locks on the boxes are self cutting to the first key put in, so if you used your key on them, they are now cut to your key. My wife's family is in the locksmith business and the tumblers cannot be rekeyed. So a key would need to be made by impression. I had to do that, and now I technically have a door key for the owner's truck that I bought the boxes from.

I installed my Bakflip G2 yesterday and all I had to do was flip the Utilitracks on the sides upside down to give the clamps which hold the mounting rails more space between the rail and body of the pickup bed.

From what it looks like the MX4 and G2 are near identical. How did your MX4 mount in? With the way the G2 mounted I think I would still be able to use Titan boxes.

I tried to flip the side rails and still open the Titan boxes but you can open or close them because the side rails came down too far. I even contacted Bakflip for a solution and then told me that you would have to decide between the cover and the boxes. I'm going to either cut the rails or remove the front half of the side rails to install mine.

hrmm, weird.

Ah well, I guess I won't be buying the Titan boxes :) Thanks for the info!

Btw, you can always get a Bakbox.

I bought a MX4 from Realtruck.com and have not been happy with it... the rubber weather stripping attached to the underside of the topper at the bulkhead came off and the ends of the side rubber strips lifted off the vinyl .. when it was glued together the vinyl was not cleaned and primed for the glue to properly adhere. I had to use gorilla tape to get the strips to stay attached and seal out The water. real truck just sent 2 side strips and the wrong bulkhead strip and bak is just jerking me around giving excuses saying I installed it wrong. the unfinished ends of the rails scratched my tailgate the first time i shut it so i filed down the ends of the rails and taped them to keep the weather strip out of the way of the tailgate when it shuts and to hide the unfinished end of the rails

Realtruck.com and Bak refused my 30 day return request and not honoring a warranty.

i figured for 1000 dollars i would have received a quality product with customer support and a warranty

the response I received from Bak industries was first to call Realtruck.com but they already closed my request for seals and primer. Then Bak replied with “ per the attached instructions you installed it wrong “ i replied that the rubber strips were never installed correctly causing detachment, and the rivets in the rails or small sheet metal screws were not even evenly installed evenly. It was if their factory assembly was lazy or just didnt give a crap about craftsmanship during manufacturing.

from a distance it is a nice looking topper, but in a year this is just going to fall apart in the florida heat and rain.
