    Any options for soft tonneau cover with roof rack style bars above?

    Looking to carry 4 bikes above the bed of my truck while being able to utilize the bed space and have a soft tonneau cover. Any ideas?

    dunno about soft tonneau covers, but there are a number available that work with the retractable type.

    This is just one example I turned up on a quick google search.

    Is any of the top rail exposed still with the cover on?
    If so, you can simply add towers dropped through the rails and add a load bar or two and the racks of your choice.Name:  asset.jpeg

    Not sure as I currently have a cap and am researching ideas at this point. And do you mean dropped through the stake holes?

    A buddy of mine put these on the top of the bed rails to mount a foot pack, load bars, etc.

    Just the towers drilled through the rail.

    I could add two more 1up trays to have 4 bikes.

    I bolted O-channel to the top of the rails and have attached the cross bars to that.
