Recommended Tonneau Cover to Use with Thule WingBar Crossbars on 2018 Chevy Colorado


Hello, I am looking for help fitting my 2018 Chevy Colorado short bed with a hard tonneau cover. I am interested in the aero crossbars by Thule, I was wondering if there were any special pads or attachments that I would need in order to fit properly across the tonneau cover. Any help would be greatly appreciated .

For your 2018 Chevy Colorado with the 5 foot bed I recommend taking a look at the Pace Edwards JackRabbit Hard Tonneau Cover # 311-JECA03A25. This is an excellent hard, retractable tonneau cover that is equipped with Explorer Rails that are specifically designed to allow the mounting of roof rack crossbars or other accessories.

To mount a couple of Thule crossbars to the tracks you will just need the Fit Kit # THKIT3101, the Podium Feet # TH460R, and the crossbars themselves such as the sleek 60 inch WingBar Load Bars # TH711520 in Black or # TH711500 for Silver.

In addition to providing a simple mounting system for the crossbars the Pace Edwards cover features durable aluminum panels that will resist corrosion, continuous tension springs to allow for easy operation, drain tubes at the canister to prevent moisture from getting trapped in the bed, and an easy no-drill installation process. The frame rails simply clamp to the inside of the side rails on your Colorado.

I have attached the complete installation manual that you can also check out.
