Undercover tonneau install and rhino rack track

Got tired of trying to get to stuff on my roof and always having dust in my truck bed when on camping trips and hunting trips so I ditched the roof rack and went with a tonneau. Decided to go with a Undercover Classic tonneau and a Rhino Rack track and rack system. Both installed pretty easily. The plan is to probably add a lightweight mesh tray that has lot's of quick detach points so that I can throw on my solar panel and lighter items when I want to and then take them off when I don't. I'll be adding some back up lights and my Rhino Rack Dome 1300 awning tomorrow.

Undercover sells a tonneau called the "Ridgelander" that costs $1600 or something like that and already has a track and load bars, but A: they don't sell it for the Frontier, and B: for about $700 you can get one of their other tonneau's and just add your own track and load bars to it. The Classic is touted to hold something like 580lbs or more, far more than you would ever want as a dynamic load on a tonneau anyways. Hope ya like it!

Very cool and perfect timing! I am struggling between a fiberglass cap or a hard/folding or rigid tonneau. Pretty much settled on the Undercover Classic and also thinking about tracks for it. With the bikes on it does it cause any lifting or twisting of the cover when the bikes sway?
Nope. Not that I have seen. The tracks distribute the weight well.

I would definitely consider the Rhino Rack system as they sell it as a kit and for quite a bit less than Yakima and Thule. I got the 59? bars. You cut the track to fit. The main reason though the rhino rack is optimal for the classic tonneau is because you can adjust the mounting bolts to wherever work best since the classic has large support ridges on the underside as you can see in my photos. Best of luck to you!
