    Looking for a thread discussing low profile bed cleats that work well with roll-up tonneaus (such as Truxedo). Can't find what I'm looking for. Anybody have a link?

    Also would like to hear about your solutions to the issue of the factory bed cleats being too large to use with a tonneau rail. I could just make my own, but I'm considering trimming the plastic of the OEM cleats. Anybody ever try?

    I would not trim the cleats, the low profile covers that I know of do not allow use of the cleats. Some covers come with a track that installs behind the cleat rail that raises the cover an inch or two allowing use of the factory cleats.

    I think Truxedo and Access have one that I know of, there are probably more, though. This is the Access rail.
