Yes, just installed the BakFlip MX4 and had to flip the Utili-tracks to make it work. I also have the factory bed extender and this created some issues with that also. Here is a copy of the Review I gave my tonneau on Auto Accessories Garage:

Mark B who drives a Nissan Titan


Performance: 5

Quality: 5

Appearance: 5

I am giving this product a 4 star rating because the instructions told me nothing about the extra steps needed to install it on my 2017 Nissan Titan Pro4x with the 5 1/2 foot box. This is a quality built item and the second one I have owned. I installed one on my Toyota last year, but sold the truck after 10 months, so I cannot give a rating on its durability. I will say that their claim that it is 100% waterproof is only partially true. Heavy driving rains and car washes penetrated my last cover, but not a deluge. I believe this will last for years the way it was built, but like anything else, only if you take care of it. Back to the install. If you have the factory bed rail system, you will have to remove the rails and reinstall them upside down. The heads of the stainless bolts on these rails strip easily. My truck is brand new and I still manage to strip several of them, adding to the headache. They were really tight from the factory. No where in the directions or on the web page listing does it tell you have to do this. I had to call customer service (very friendly and helpful) to get it figured out. I have the factory bed extender, which rides on the bed rails. By reversing the bed rails for installation, the factory bed extender will still work, but it is on a funny angle, but still functional. Plus, make sure you have the bed extender brackets in the rear rails (near the tailgate) before you tighten the screws after flipping (reversing) the rails. If you don't, you will not be able to get the bed extender brackets back on and will have to remove the rail screws again to do that. Again, not in the instructions. Recalling my previous install, I will say the instructions are good, but some pictures are confusing. But, because I installed one of these within the last year, the install for me was easy (again, except for the extra steps not in the instructions). I purchased this from Auto Accessories Garage and got a 10% discount. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. All the parts were in the box. There was a slight mix-up with the order (my fault), but Auto Acc Garage helped me to correct it right away. You can't go wrong with this cover. Built solid, it gives you confidence that you made a good investment. One other point of note any of you 2016/2017 Titan owners might want to know. You probably realize how tremendously high the box is in the new Titans. This tonneau cover folds back when you release the locking clips by pulling on a cable that runs across from side to side. You have to do this for each fold. But, with the height of the truck bed, I have trouble reaching the two cables from the middle and front fold. You will understand what I mean when you get your tonneau. I am 5' 10" tall and have to get into my truck bed to reach the middle cable and the cable nearest the cab to fold the cover. This in no way reflects on the quality of the cover, just something to think about for us shorter guys that have these monster Titan truck beds.

Hope this helps.
