Stcks with tonneau cover?

Anyone know if anybody has stacks with a tonneau cover? I am looking to get stacks but have things in the back of my truck that cannot get wet so i would like to leave my cover on. has anyone had this same problem?

Definitely wouldn't keep things dry. Can't think of any way to keep it all sealed up. Maybe someone else will have some ideas?

I am having the same issue. I already have my stacks so when i install, I will let you know what i figure out. I have seen a few with stacks and covers but dont know for sure how it was done or how dry things stay.

I would think if you had a soft cover that you could cut out the space you needed and then you would have to fabricate some round rubber gaskets. that should seal the bed from water intrusion as long as it was a tight seal around the staks. As for a fiberglass cover i dont think you could make it work and still look good. just a thought.

That is what i was thinking with the rubber gasket. Yet i was going to ask if the rubber gasket would melt, or would the cover burn up if it is on the exhaust.
