Can Topline 2 Bike Carrier # UG2500 be Modified to Fit Tonneau Cover Rails on 2016 Ram 1500 Ram Box  


Do you have a modified mount for the body side clamp that will work with a Ram with the Rambox? I also have a Bakflip cover with rails which seems strong enough to attach to it. I understand from research my Ram system is much the same as a Toyota truck bed with cover. I can use my Bakflip rails if I could modify your mounting clamp to a bolt on plate much like what holds the cover down. It would be a nice option for you to market for RAM trucks as an optional mounting accessory. I was thinking Id purchase a replacement rail clamp from Bakflip to make it work. Any suggestions greatly appreciated, I really like your bike rack system!

There isn't a pre-made mount for the Topline 2 Bike Carrier # UG2500 but you may be able to make it work if you did exactly what you said and get a mount for the Tonneau cover rails and adapt the bike rack to it.

There is no telling how that might work out and you could void warranties on the Tonneau cover and the bike rack. What I recommend is to use a tailgate pad # SR26457. That way you don't have to modify anything, there is no unknowns about how it would work, and you wouldn't need to worry about voiding warranties. And the tailgate pads like this one do work quite well. I have linked a video review for you.
