Leer 700 Tonneau Inside Bed Height?

Looking at the Leer hard cover. It looks like it may be tall enough (inside) to allow me to put my coolers in the bed and close the cover. Coolers are around 18" tall and bed sides look to be about 17" (I have a factory bed-liner). Anybody have one that could let me know? Thanks.

It's at least 18" (that's what she said). I don't remember exactly what I measured, but I checked mine a few months ago before buying a bunch of drywall to see if I had to remove my tonneau (not the Leer 700) or not. IIRC, it's actually even a little more than 18" to the top of the bed rails (for the spray-in bed liner). Do you have the spray in or plastic liner? Also, most tonneaus give you an inch or two of clearance for any items that sit proud of the bedrails and judging by the pictures on Leer's website, it appears that the 700 has some additional clearance.

Best way to check would be to lay a straight 2x4 or stretch a string across your bed then measure up to it from the higher points in the bed; you'll get a real clean reading.

a little more than 20" in the rear middle. the mdidle section is the tallest part so i assume the whole middle is about 20". and like i said, it should fit longways right next to the cab

How well does the 700 series fit with respect to still being able to use the Utilitrac and the bed extender in full aft position? Have you had any issues with using these with the 700 installed. Is it easy to remove?

Thanks...

with it shut, you cant have the cleats on the middle section of the side utilitracs because when it folds down the arm thingy is in the way. doesnt affect anyother part of it though. i dont have the bed extender so im not sure about it. also never removed it before, but seems like it would be pretty easy. maybe need 2 people to lift it off

Checkout the A.R.E LSII which is what I settled with. I know with mine I cannot use the bed extender, but I don't need it anyway. During my investigation of these tonneau covers I noticed that the Snug Top lifts up higher and according to the sales guy can be used with the factory bed extender. Good luck
