I had to cut all 4 corners at an angle on the flat wide part that sits on the bed shoulder. Then I also cut the fin that goes down the inside of bed shoulder enough to miss the brackets so it would allow the cover opening to get wide enough. I only did this on the front brackets, not the rear. The rear of the bed cover rails wanted to angle down toward the center of the bed causing the opening to be too tight to close the cover so I put rubber spacers under the very end of them on top of the inner bed shoulder column just inside the tailgate. As I mentioned, it is less water resistant than before. You could put some weather stripping under the rails since the rubber lip from the factory topper is now raised up the thickness of the steel brackets.how did you modify the tonneau cover to work with the rack?
Thanks. It's been a fun build so far. I will have to check out the hard rolling cover you mentioned. Wonder how much modification it will take.Looks Killer! Excellent build. The roll bars with tonneau cover is awesome. I really appreciate your close-up photos on how you cut it to make it work with the rack. I ordered the Bac X4s hard rolling tonneau cover and I am looking to do something similar. The Maximus-3 sports rack is the best-looking one I have found. I have been going back and forth on the Maximus-3 and modifying the cover or the Black Horse sports bar that will work with no modification. You might have just shown me the better path.
