    Hello,
    Has anyone tried to install a tonneau cover with a back rack? I am looking to get one for my pickup and I would like to have a tonneau cover as well.
    Thank you

    You will probably have to have a couple of inches cut off and have the cover restitched to accommodate the difference in length due to the mounting bracket. I did this on my old Dakota I used to have like 7 years ago that had a saddle box(two trucks ago... man how time flies). I just cut the side rails with a metal blade and a reciprocating saw, and then took the whole assembly to a guy who did auto upholstery.. it turned out great. I will most likely be ding the dame on my current truck, but I also have a toolbox so I will have to cut a lot more than you. BTW I still have the cut cover for the Dakota if anybody is interested... I will let it go dirt cheap...
