Does anyone both the bakflip cover and a back rack installed? I have the back rack on my truck and I want to get a bed cover too. Is it possible?

I think the only way you can do it is if you order the BakFlip cover and BakRak together (which is not cheap). Not sure you can use a Bakflip cover with a third party rack. You might contact them directly to find out for certain. I wanted one for mine but they do not make a model (yet) for trucks with the Ramboxes. They have three models.

I think I will order a bakflip and see if I can make the two work together.
Thanks for your help.

That would be great if it did. I would love to have a rack I can remove when necessary but keep the back covered at all times (rack in or out). I only need the rack to haul kayaks and would not need it in all the time. Please keep us posted on what you find out.

I certainly will. Im going to see if I can buy one locally tomorrow. There are a few places around that sell truck accessories.

if you have a crewcab, you can buy the RAMBOX bed extender/cargo management system & still use the tonneau, if the AD above is correct
look at the tab that reads ADVENTURE GUIDE

I do not have a rambox. I have a quad cab with the 6.5' bed.

Yes you can but you have to specify you have the Ram Box. The Bakflip for the Ram Box bed is narrower than the regular bed.

My earlier post may have been unclear. I have the Bakflip F1 on my truck now and I have the Ramboxes. What they do not make is the rack and cover combo system for trucks with the Rambox. I can get the rack that goes in the trailer hitch receiver and works with roof racks, but I sometimes pull a trailer full of camping gear when we go on weekend floats. Ideal situation is to keep my current F1 cover closed, have a rack that hauls the kayaks, and keep the receiver open to haul a trailer. Yeah, I know, I am asking too much but a man can dream, can't he?

I've got ya now. Nope, no stake pockets, unless you fab something up and market it....

I am not clever (or brave) enough to try a fab like that on my truck. Now I would consider selling my F1 and trading up if they ever make a rack/cover combo that works with the Rambox. Until then, I am probably better of modding my trailer to hold multiple yaks.

i have this exact setup and all you need are cover adapters

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. I could not find on their site whether they would work for trucks with the Rambox. Also, it is perfectly suited for a work truck but not for hauling kayaks. I would need to be able to install the kayak carriers that would help protect the boat and prevent it from sliding. Regardless, I am going to look into and maybe contact the company to see if they have an option that will work for me. Thanks again for the info!

Below is a pic of the setup I am trying to achieve. I am hoping Bakflip will come out with one that will adapt to my existing F1 and Ramboxes so I don't have to replace the entire thing.

I spoke with my rep over at BAK and he says the BACKRACK fits with BAK Flip Depending on the truck. The Ram Box bed will not work, however most other truck beds will.
