    if theres a thread out their please point me to it. My dilemma is I have the OEM tri fold tonneau cover but want to get the smitty built truck bed tent that is raised with a frame but I am looking for something that allows me to keep the tonneau because I love having my surf boards and other gear safely stored and away from sticky hands. Is their anything that is compatible with the tri fold so I get the best of both worlds? Or is their someone out in the world who builds custom frames for cases like this.

    David. If you're putting your surfboards in the bed, you can't be a real surfer. Long Boards Rule!!!

    As long as your cover didn't require your accessory rail to be moved.

    This is how the brackets attach.

    We feel that stability would be sacrificed if the bars were any taller.

    Ahh understandable. Maybe I'll have to make-do just when I go on a trip or camping because I do like to open up the cover for easier acces

    I have heard from people who own the smitty that its the QC thats really lacking.... Alum shards that they have to clean up everywhere and I have seen both up close and the material is dif.

    CVT is the same as tuff stuff in terms of quality

    As I've said many times......we don't do sales.

    We keep our margins tight.

    Sales mean that you've been gouging your customers all year, and now things are slow, so hey, let's have a sale.

    Sales can also mean that you made something that nobody wants, and you can't even give it away.
