Can you tell me if the tonneau can be locked in any positions other than fully open or fully closed? Also, can you open the tonneau without opening the tailgate first? These are some of the features that I was really hoping to have.
Keep in mind the Trak Rac system is a soft cover......a knife will open it.
The tailgate at least has to be cracked open to get to the lever that opens the tonneau cover. If you lock the tailgate, then the cover is locked.
I have tried using the tonneau cover in a 1/2 position, but the wind blows it all over the place. If the cover is rolled up against the cab, it will stay there, even without securing it with the included straps.
I installed the bed rails soon after I got my truck, and haven't had the need to remove them. The racks live in my garage most of the time until I need them.
The Trak Rac tonneau cover is not 100% rain proof. I still get some water in around the tailgate, depending on how the truck is parked on a slope. Regardless of that, I like the Trak Rac system.....it was the only thing I could find with a tonneau cover and racks. The racks are great, with optional tie-downs and rack slides.
