How high does the 5ver overhang sit above the truck's bed rails? If it's less than 7.5", it's pretty much a sure thing that you'll hit the toolbox in a tight turn.
I have a tri-fold hard cover that's 5" high and 29" front to back when folded. For clearance between overhang and truck, I have 7" at the front of the overhang. I've never had any issues but need to watch if backing into a tight spot that's uphill. I also have a manual slider though I almost never use it.
You could check by doing some careful mall parking lot maneuvering to check the limits.
