Use of bed mounted racks from Thule or Yakima is problematic if you have a tonneau cover installed. When I inquired, both manufacturers confirmed that they do not have a bed mount system that works with cover and told me I'd have to dismount the tonneau cover frame while using their racks.

I've ended up mounting Yakima racks on top of the crew cab of my 2015 GMC Denali 1/2 ton. The outfitter that I bought the Yakima and the 17' 6" P&H Sea Kayaks from said this would be fine. I'd not realized that there is actually more cab length on a are cab truck than on many cars. The kayaks rest in kayak mounts and then at tied front and back.
