Fold-A Cover install on my tow vehicle.

Will be buying a fold a cover soon for the new truck, just put a drop in liner in.

The drop in liner is under the rail; except the front of the bed the liner (duraliner)does wrap over the front rail. (To hold it in place I guess) My last truck the liner is the same.

My question is; is it OK to install the fold a cover over the liner on that front rail only?
Or should I cut it back?

Thanx, Bill

Hey Bill
Did you decide against the rolling cover? What brand is the folding top? I have a spray liner in my truck but my business partner has a drop-in and they did have to cut it a bit to get the fit right for his Retrax cover. Does your cover use a clamping system that fastens to the rails? If not what?

Hi AZ, I like the idea of the roll-ups but I am scared of it jamming up in the winter, and we will use the truck for skiing also. Ice/frozen rain might make it difficult so I decided to go with the Fold-A-Cover, 4 folding panels, no mechanism to jam up. Locks the tailgate also so should be pretty secure (at least against the good guys...) Haven't bought it yet but will get it in a week or two.
