Can anybody confirm this new tonneau p/n has the new design end seal that works with the power tailgate? I.e. tailgate closes and forces tonneau to seal up against it automatically. (This is essentially the Bakflip MX4 rebranded by REV). I carried over my 2018 tonneau and the lipseal catches the tailgate when power-closing. Tailgate detects resistance and lowers itself again.

This is the new MX4 seal:

Couldn't find confirmation of this on the forums, thanks in advance.

Not sure if this helps, but this is the one I ordered with my truck. No problems with my power tailgate, but does leak a little bit.

Awesome, thanks for the reply! Yeah that looks like the new lip seal, albeit not as beefy looking as the Bakflip seal. But it does have the newer triple seal. Wonder if you brought the cover out further away from the cab would you get a better seal on top of the tailgate? Where does yours leak?

That's something I've been meaning to try since I noticed it. It leaks along the whole tailgate, not much though.
