    I found that coax seal works great to seal covers.

With a long bed is it possible to have the cover folded back far enough to have rear window visibility and still fit a bike over the tailgate? For my bike I would need the cover to fold up within 27 inches of the bulkhead.

    Yes the MX4 goes all the way and tilts up against the rear window. Plenty of room

    Thanks @cspcrx. I was hoping I wouldn't have to fold it all the way up against the window so I could still see out the back. Any idea how much room the long bed version takes when it is folded all the way to the front, but still horizontal? If its less that 27 inches I should be good.

    I have the long bed back flip, here is the folded flat measurement to the top/front of bed (2020= no rail)

    Here is the full open #, it 6” but kinda fragile for any shifting load

    Thanks @Willys714. Appreciate the measurement, really wanted to know what I was dealing with before spending the money on one.

    Yes, it comes with the brackets to lower your accessory rail. It’s a nice cover, but does leak a bit like many others have noted.

    It’s been money well spent, being able to haul m/c’s and then lock and cover makes the truck dual purpose too.
    Just over a year old it still looks and works like new, No squeaks or rattles off roading either.
