Stake hole mounts and I don't have stake holes unless I cut them out since I have the oem bedrail cover. So called Truxedo and they are sending me the correct ones which is funny since the tc was shipped from them via Summit Racing. Grrrrr The lady said you did tell us you had a dually?????? Well nobody asked. :evil:

Our bed rails must be different as I just used 3 clamps on each side.

Duallies don't have stake holes?

I have bed rail covers where you would need to cut out the stake holes. I will only have 3 clamps on each side.

Or it can be a p.i.t.a. "as a goodwill offer we will send you new mounts" Sounds like somebody I know at FR.

Well it was almost an oops but it clears. I need to bend two little short ears up level on the back of the pin box to make me feel better yet. Its not the 3" part of the tonneau cover rail that is in the way its the upper part that sits on a 45 degree with the velcro in it that come real close on a 90 degree turn with the back of the pin box. The rest of the mounting hardware should be here tomorrow and I can get the tonneau cover on the truck.

Glad it's all working out for you.
Rob, do you mean one of those fiberglass shells? I need something that will raise up so I can drive the scooter up into the bed while standing on the ground so I need it to be clear for my arms to reach in.

Well I could have had it in last Saturday but Truxedo put the wrong street on the shipping address. I called Truxedo and got the tracking number and that is how I found out. After 15 min on the phone with Fedex went over to their main hub here in Troutdale and picked up the clamps at 6 tonight. Cover is now on. :d

Pic from last night looks pretty good. Need to wait for day to heat up today so I can do the final tension adjustments.
