Now, yesterday I took it through one of those touchless power wash car washes and I did get some water in the bed.

I have a Duraliner bed liner and the piece that goes in the front of the bed hooks over the top edge of the bed. The side liners tuck underneath the bed rails. Would this work with the hooking piece over the front of the bed? Its about a 1/4" thick piece of plastic.

I went out and measured about 3/4" gap between the front bed cover rail and the front bed wall. There is a gasket that covers the gap. I think you'll be okay with your bed liner. If in doubt, contact peraon, they are pretty nice.

Nips916,

Longhorn is correct regarding the liner wrapping over the front bulkhead. You won't have any trouble because that part of the rail system compensates for various liner thicknesses.

That looks just like the bak flip and did not have to drill any holes with that nor does it leak what was the price for that

Price is $599 and free shipping. Nice thing about the Peragon is it opens into the first 6in. of the bed, not flip up against the back of the cab. If you need full use of the bed the Peragon pops out in about 30 sec. Bak-flip is NOT 100% waterproof either and requires a drain at the front of the rail to be routed through the bed floor to drain out the rails. If you have the Peragon adjusted well water intrusion is minimal. Both have merits and drawbacks but for the price the Peragon is a nice option. If you want a total waterproof cover the only type that is near 100% is the one piece fiberglass, and even those can leak. Just depends on what you want the cover for and how much you want to spend.

I've had my Peragon cover for several month's now,and really like it.While it isn't water tight,and very few bed covers are,it keeps the bed interior pretty dry.
I have a tailgate seal,but haven't installed it yet.Most of the water that gets into the bed comes from the gaps around the tailgate.

I have an Armor Lid 1 piece bed cover on my other truck,and it gets water inside the bed also,but it also doesn't have a tailgate seal.

There are only 2 negatives that I can find in the Peragon bed cover.
1. It gets very,very hot in the sunlight.You need gloves on in order to push it down to open it,or you will get burnt hands/fingers.I know this from experience.
2.If you have any small items-boxes/coolers/etc.,and don't use a cargo management bar,and those items happen to slide to the front of the bed.You will not be able to open the cover to get access to them,you will have to climb inside the bed,under the cover to retrieve them.I also know this from experience.
I now have/use a cargo bar for all small items that I carry in the bed of the truck.

Talking Ordering one!

I'm getting ready to order a Peragon. I was happy to see the discussion here about it. Thanks for the tip on the Cargo Bar!!!!!! I was wondering about stuff sliding around and how difficult it would be to fish it out!
