    Anyone have any success using a bed rack with a Retrax-style cover? I have one from Truck Covers USA and am wondering if sliding brackets like those from @kbvodoo will cause problems with the mounting rail or seals.

    Any luck getting the cover and bedrack working together? I've got the same CBI bedrack and have been thinking about ordering a cover in the next couple weeks.

    Nope. The aluminum is just too thick and it isn't perfectly straight. I just couldn't wedge it under there. I eventually gave up. :(

    Man that stinks. I have the steel version, but it will probably have the same issue.

    It’s not 100% yet, but with some modifications I was able to get the CBI bedrack to work with a soft top. Next stop is a seamstress to take about an inch and a half out of the width.

    That looks pretty good! Have any photos of it rolled up? What modifications did you have to make?

    I can roll it up once it stops raining for some pictures. It's still difficult to roll because it's about 2 inches to wide right now. Once It's been redone it will be easier to roll. Once the rain stops I'll grab some pictures, but basically we had to drill new holes in the CBI Bedrack just below the rail mounts. We then used the L-shaped brackets and new holes to mount the rails for the cover inside the bed, vs on top of the side rails. Because it's inside and not on the top, it's a couple inches narrower in width. So we had to cut the front and rear mounts and each of the poles down the center. It took a few hours and two people but in the end it's worth it. I'll get some pictures that will help explain it once the rain finally stops.

    Alright! That's super slick.

    :hattip:

    Once the weather is nicer here, I might just try this. I was hesitant to cut it, unsure of how it would turn out, but yours turned out AWESOME.

    im sure its possible but before doing anything I would assess the situation if after installing the rack will the backflip revolver fit on top of the rail of the rack and will it still roll back and forth what not but looking at the pic of the tonno cover it should work with little tweaking here and there

    you might have too look around I bought mine used from a member on here from Oregon the weld was shiet but that wasn't the members fault but still holds up for me I think you best bet is probably cbi or kb cause the all pro the rail stops 5 to 6 inches from the tailgate so I had to put a door trim I bought from autozone and stuff it between the rail and the cover so there would be no leak from rain and have a big gap

    I have yet to work out how to get mine to work. :)
    I know one thing: it won't work without some cutting. The covers are made to cover a part of the bed top... And that is now narrower with the bed rack in place. You'll need to reduce the width. Might be easier for a simple set up, but the backflip looks like a bigger undertaking.

    It won't work with the Revolver X2. I have one and it goes over the bed rail just slightly. You cannot move them inward because the entire metal portion of the cover must sit between the rails just right, or it won't fit in the locking channel. You only have a few millimeters of wiggle room, but it looks like this All Pro rack requires us to move the rails a good inch or two inward to work.

    Basically, you would have to somehow figure out how to cut the aluminim cover to make it a few inches skinnier...and it would have to be precise or it won't lock anymore. Definitely not worth the risk & hassle.



    Out of all the racks I have seen, this ProLine 4x4 bed rack is the only one that MIGHT come close to working with the Revolver. You'll still have to make a small adapter so that the rack will attach to the rail system (because the Bakflips always relocate the rails about an inch lower than stock...but that's an easier workaround).

    Agree with this. Mine is a cheap used agri-cover that only has two or three aluminum cross poles. Then there is the matter of trimming the vinyl cover. But I'd be hesitant to chop up an $800 cover like the Bakflip.

    @ToyoDrew I will contact them tomorrow to see if they have any experience with the revolver and if this is a viable option. This is great but if it does not work I'm going to go with an actual roof rack. Any recommendations on that end?
