I'm going out of town in a couple of weeks & on my way to my destination I will pick up 4 wheels with tires mounted on them. I am also getting an Undercover SE tonneau installed before I go. With the Tonneau closed I have 17"'s total height inside the bed but 2 wheels/tires stacked up is 23"'s. I was thinking of putting 3 wheels in the bed with the 3rd wheel towards the tailgate & 1 wheel in the back seat (it's a double cab). The problem is that I will have to drive 10 hours this way at 70-75mph.
I've seen trucks driving with the hard tonneau open completely many times but I am not sure how safe this is. In my case I'm talking about the cover being open about 10"'s, not completely open. If I do this I will minimize the movement of the tonneau & stress on the hinges by bunjee cording it to the truck. Luckily I have a lot of bunjee cords.
Anyone ever have a similar situation?
Any input from you hard tonneau guys or anyone with experience in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
