    A gentlemen ask me to post some pics of my rack. Hope it helps someone.. The rack is a Thule but I had a Yakima on my 05 and would work the same way, as well.

    I don't know if there is an exact name. You can start with Thule or Yakima.

    #1- buy the base trucks (2) ( the one you put directly on top of tonneau). Mine are 48 " long (5' bed).

    #2- You get the four tower (legs). They should have locks and landing pads. Landing pads are the only thing that would be permanently attached to your tracks.

    #3- get the traversal bars (2). They can be round or oval. Mine are 48".

    Once you have these three things installed,, you are ready to install any bike rack on top. Our bed is wide enough to accept even four bikes and the Undercover Tonneau will more then hold this.. If it makes it easier for you, you can print out one of this pics and go to a good store. Any bright kid should be able to give you an idea of the $ cost.



    I hope this helps a little.

    Thanks for posting that! I appreciate it. Its a little different than what I will have to do since I have the access rollup cover. I will probably have to attach the base trucks to the side caps of the bed. I'm wondering if the tower legs will be tall enough to allow clearance for the cover to rollup under it.

    I may end up having to do some custom fab work.

    There is a guy around here that I see at the mountain biking trails and sometimes driving around who has a bike rack over his bed with a yakima load warrior basket. Next time I see him I'm going to flag him down to see how he did his setup.

    I don't know what roll up you have but I saw one with side rails that are designed to accept the landing pads. So you would have the same set up with the cross bar running over from one side to the other side. You can see them Truckaddon site. The worst scenario you can make couple hole and mount them with two screws. Landing pads have two holes all ready.

    I have the access literider rollup. the metal piece that the vinyl is attached to that latches to the side rails is about 4 inches tall so once you have the cover wrapped around it a few times I would imagine there needs to be around 6-8" of clearance for the cover to rollup under it.

    How do the TB60 tracks work after one year of use? Any cracks in the undercover!
    Have you placed a bolt in every hole of tracks or in every second?
    Can you post a picture to see the backside of the undercover with the bolts?
    Thank you for your efforts!

    So far so good. No cracks or any other issues.
    I placed a bolt every other hole. You can't put in every hole. You have to fall between the cover ribs. I took few pics right now. Sorry is dark here. Hope this will help.

    Dude, that looks amazing. I have your truck and your cover. Can you, at all, remember where you got what you have or names? I'd love to do that exact setup.
