    I'm about to pull the trigger on a folding tonneau cover but still undecided. However, I want to go ahead and get the OEM cargo rails but noticed one OEM dealer said they can't be used on a spray in bed liner. The sounds a little hokey to to me. Probably have to chase the holes with a tap if they got sprayed. Also, will this create issues with hard folding covers? What say the hive? TIA

    WRONG !!!!

    I have the Bullet Liner spray on and the bed rails from @Roman, no issues at all. This pic was before I installed the bed rails.

    I did have to chase the holes because the tech sprayed over them, even when I advised him of my intentions... lol

    You can use them with spray in Bedliner. They are in my truck with spray in headliner if that proves anything.

    I just had Line-X installed 2 days ago on a brand new Tundra. It appears they take the rails off, spray and then put them back on. They still work perfectly

    As you can see....bed rail OEM track system is still there and working.

    As others have said, no problem using the OEM bed rails with a spray-in liner...Don't know why they would say that. Now, some tonneau covers require the bed rails to be relocated and have an accessory kit to lower them.

    Yep, I'm seeing that they will fit. Now trying to decide on a trifold that doesn't leak like a sieve that would mount to the OE rails. I know a lot has been posted but it's confusing.

    I'm looking at the Undercover you mentioned. I guess it comes with the hardware as you chose with or without rails. How's that working for ya? I'm pulling the trigger today. Trying to stick to a budget of about 1100 including the cargo rails

    I have bullet spray in liner with factory bed rail and extang trifold 2.0. It all works and no leaks. I am still able to use the mounts on the bed rail system.

    Thanks guys. Rails ordered. I bought the Bakflip MX4. I hope I don't regret it. If you call Real Truck .com, they will come down on the price vs the web advertised. Took $150 off of the original $999 price. All the reviews of most any of the folding covers are mixed with respect to water. I have to believe that it's because people are not savvy enough to figure out how to play around with weather stripping to get the desired results. Also, the guy on the other end of the phone said Bak had upgraded the corner seals recently.

    Again, I sure hope I have no regrets. the Diamond back is just more than I need, and I want access to the entire bed at times.
