    So I have a bakflip Toneau currently on my tacoma DCSB.

    I am thinking about trying to fit a set of Yakima Tracks along the top of my truck bed.

    http://www.yakima.com/shop/racksystems/permanent-installation/tracks54-w-plusnuts

    I'll then will use yakima control towers and round bars with the tracks.

    This would give me the flexibility of sliding the control towers towards the front if I want to flip the toneau cover up. I also like the option of quickly removing the the bars if I want them out of the way. Has anyone done this? How difficult is it to attach things to the top of the truck bed?

    I did this to my 03 Tacoma. It had a "snug lid" cover. Mounted the tracks, towers, and 4 trays. Worked awesome. No leaks, solid. Sorry no pics. This was a long time ago

    No they come with screws for the tracks, but you'll need to get longer ones at the hardware store, they work but i haven't checked if it has gone throught the top sheet metal.

    here is the site i got the tracks from. Great price, and way cheaper than yakima.

    Also i went to home depot and got my own bars made from 3/4 inch metal tubing that they cut and threaded for the cap. way cheaper than yakima tubes. you might be able to use 1 inch tube but didn't try to fit that into the control tower, the end caps will catch if the bars ever end up moving.
