    Does attaching D-rings under the side rails affect the fit of a Bakflip Tonneau cover
    I just ordered a Bakflip G2 Tonneau cover and know that it attaches into the side rails (hence my interest in adding D-rings). I plan to fit D-rings to the bed bolts but would also like to fit them under the side rails as some of you have done. Will this create a problem with the fit of my new tonneau cover?

    It might.... the holes are already drilled in the tonneau cover and the rails. Putting the rings behind the side rails might push the holes off center enough to where you would need to ream them out.
