    This is directly in reference to our Bed Rack at JCR, but it should help you with some other manufactures racks as well if they mount like ours.

    A roll-up cover is really the only non-permanent way to cover your bed if you have a bed rack. There isn't a lot of room on the bed rails for a cover to sit, so ideally it would sit between the rails only. We found that all of the Access Roll-Up covers mount in this way.

    We installed the Access LITERIDER today. We added a little thicker weatherstripping to take up the extra space that our mounts make (see video.)

    We will say that we prefer the one-handed unlatching cord of the Access Original or Limited Edition over the LITERIDER separate lock and latch. It may be worth the extra coin to you as well. They offer the Lorado as well if you want the cover to be a .5" shorter (1" total over bed height.)

    There TrailRail version mounts directly to the rail (just like our bed rack if you have that option) so it would work the same as shown the video.

    We aren't sponsored by Access or a dealer, but so far their covers have worked the best across our racks for different model vehicles.

    Have you had it our in the rain yet? I am wondering how well the seal holds up to a sustained heavy rain.
