I have the kbvoodoo mid height rack for tonneau. If youre gonna do some serious offroading I would maybe suggest the premium rack. I have the regular rack and it seems very sturdy and well built but If I were to do it again Id get the premium rack. According to the website, 40% thicker material

Taco_primo what did you have to do to the cover? Considering it just for some dry storage

Had to first fit it to see where the side rails needed to be trimmed (due to the RCI mounts) then after it was all snuggled down in place, I scribed a line on the rails on each side of the rack mounts.....then I started cutting.

I've narrowed down my selection to go with a Leitner Design bedrack only because they have the storage POD option which I would need to secure items for my daily. I've got two little ones that take up the backseats with their boosters. I'm still open to other options but honestly don't feel comfortable having an XL RTT bolted to a bedrack thats just mounted to the rails of our bed. The Leitner Design bedrack is actually bolted to the bed. Anyone got a set up where they have a lockable/retrackable bedcover and bedrack with an RTT mounted that wheels pretty hard with no issues?

Yah, I've been in contact with them and should have the XL POD's in the next 4-5 weeks. I have to call them after Tuesday when the get back from the expo. Hopefully the guy that wants my softopper comes through this weekend then I'll have both the topper and bedcover already sold.

2017 Quicksand Off-Road Double Cab, Long Bed Automatic (Build Thread)
Never expected to get a RTT so soon and suddenly, but my plans this weekend with Jay, Malcolm, and Skye_tacoma made me feel like this absolutely necessary, despite Paige telling me not to.

2017 Midnight Black Off-Road Double Cab, Short Bed Manual
I had the KB Voodoo Long Bed Mid Height rack on my Short bed. Recently removed the rack since the tent can now go on the wife’s 4runner. Loved the design, had an issue with rust and a bad powder coating job, but had it media blasted, and re-coated with the old reliable rattle can Rustoleum.

noticed you have a soft tonneau cover, did you have to cut the soft part of the rails to slide the bed rack under it, i have a soft roll up cover and noticed to fit my kb voodoo hi bars i will have to shave a little under the soft cover rails to let the soft cover fit flush over the bed bars.
