Re: rack or basket on a tonneau cover
My only question or concern (having never installed a track type system) is the anti theft factor of that setup. Looking at the photo above with the silver ridgeline it looks like the silver bolts used to anchor the system down are fully exposed. Looking at the instructions for installing the Yakima tracks appears to have moutning hardware in plain sight. On a roof that would not be an issue, but on the bed rails a person can see exactly whats there.
I know that nothing is theft proof, if someone wants to take something they will figure out a way. The other option of installing the towers directly on bed rails seems safer, but the versatility of the track to accomodate different lengths or sizes of accessories is champion.
