So will the URTC work with the MOPAR OEM tonneau cover?
The URTC doesn't come with side panels to restrict the length, so it can be positioned on the bed with no interference from the latch.

Possibly, we would have to take more measurements on a Gladiator to make sure.
There are a lot of us with factory covers and 4190 Launch edition model owners that would have and interest. They all came with factory covers.

That's a bummer for those with the factory cover. Our rack is 46" long and it really can't be made any shorter without losing features.

If you look at our side panels, all those little holes provide certain mounting points for various accessories. If we made the rack any shorter, a bunch of those holes are going to be gone.

For now the only option we have for the factory cover is our Hi Rise Crossbars: https://www.kbvoodoo.com/shop?category=Truck+Bed+Crossbars

You would just need to make the rear brackets attach prior to the factory tonneau cover latch on the rail system and instead going straight up and making the partial square around the cover, have a flat peace go down the bed to where the original bracket would be then make the partial square around the cover

The Utility Rack version looks good other than it would be nice if it had a slant above interference with the factory roll up tonneau (or other fold up types I'm sure, not to sound too personally motivated).

Can have a side panel added, which is cool and wouldn't want without. Looks like 49.34 to the extreme ends of the mounting provisions with the side panel installed. Best I can tell in the dark and rain here tonight, there's a curvy bit in the plastic side rail towards the cab, and then the latch at the back. From the curvy bit to the latch is about 45. Don't think it will go.

Nice though, so close to what I was looking for. I'll keep waiting. I'm pretty attached to that tonneau now, I don't want to change it.

Most people prefer the look of the slanted rack, but the URTC has sides that are straight up and down to allow a folding cover to flip open.

You can't flip open a tri-fold cover with any rack that slants inward.

Max Modular or anyone else know if the no name colorado tonneau works? Otherwise I'm thinking about the access because its made for the gladiator specifically.
Really like the idea and diversity of the high rise crossbar

That cover would work with our bars, but I don't know if it will work on the Gladiator.

I love that there is a tall version (does the 18” go up to the roof line or better slightly above soft top roof line which is higher than hard top roofline) and that it supports some version of a soft tonneau cover and has brackets for bikes. How about brackets for kayaks?

Pictures eventually would be awesome.

Edit: Actually I wonder if two bikes would fit under (in bed) and two bikes over (on rack) for 18” rack.

i'm confused. Does your rack system work with the factory tonneau cover as long as the brackets aren't back where the tonneau cover latches?
