Bed Cover with Stacks (Pics Please!)

I have seen a few pictures but not many, I would like to cover my bed with stacks but at the same time I would want to keep water out. Possible?

ANy pictures or links to some stuff like this would be great! thanks.

im sure someone with more knowledge on the subject will chime in but i dont think that it is possible to be that water tight with the stacks through the cover, the closer u cut the hole for your stack the less you can open the cover . All depends on what you want and your usage

yeah, I know what your saying. I guess its going to be difficult to have the best of both worlds in this situation. I guess it would also depend on what type of cover were talking about. A hard cover or a soft over, I have seen a few pictures of each. Most hard covers don't even open very high to begin with so how much would you really have to cut it?

The only way I can see a hard cover being able to open and still be sealed would be a removable grommet of some type. Yeah I know its a long shot.
Thanks for the reply.

I have option 2 on my truck, But without the metal plate.
I have 7inch stacks, so i just 7 3/4 holes. but not around. like a pizza pie but with more slices, then folded them under and had them sown back, i did it this way because i have the Extang Full Tilt, so it can flex when i left the cover and everything. It looks great too.
