    Just wondering if someone could take measurements of the deck rail system not worried about length but need width, height, and channel width. It's a long story but I can't use regular strut and don't want or need the actual kit from Toyota.

    I just measured mine and the rail track measured 1.2" in height (outside), .974" deep, and the channel is .61" in height. Hope that helps.

    Thanks a lot just what I was looking for. Trying to just get a couple of pieces of strut that matches up. Ordered a tonneau cover and they sent me the one for a truck with the cargo management system which is not what I wanted now they are fighting me on getting the correct brackets for the truck I have.

    Do they offer the plates/brackets to drop the rails down from their normal mounting points? The covers that I have seen for trucks equipped with rails normally allow you to mount the rails lower by attaching plates that drop the rail mounting points down. If you don't want the deck rails, can you just not use the drop down plates to mount your cover?

    No, they sent me the kit for one with the rails for whatever reason. The brackets that came with it won't work. So it's either mounts rails or order the other mounting kit. Probably just going to order the other kit.
