Wonder if the Bull Ring tie downs would interfere with Retrax Pro XR tonneau cover.
They make a version that has cut outs to keep the stake holes free.

i believe. May be just for the manual.

You would certainly need to put them in before having the cover rails installed. Question is whether the rings would still clear the rails.
Also - seems like there would be some rings that you could mount in the t-slots?

Yep, I have Yakima bullrings that do just that. But was curious if they would clear like you say.

Installed the Leer HF650M Tonneau Cover today.

Came pretty quickly, was well packed. Was not difficult to install, but install was a bit cumbersome because I could not find the install manual on the Leer website. They do have a YouTube video but of course it did not answer all my questions such as torque specifications and items such as should the rail be flush with the bulkhead or side rails end near the tail gate.

I ended going with the bulkhead and redid it.

On my 2016 F150 I had an Extang Solid 2.0 this seems much thinner, with a more complex and better locking system. The panels do not have a foam core, my Extang melted a bit on top in the Texas sun, but still worked. I am hopeful that this cover will not do that. I am excited about the ability to flip it up and use the whole bed without having to remove the cover. I don't do that often, bit it will be handy when I need it.

All in all, I happy with the cover to start, and am cautiously optimistic it will perform well.

On a side note, the Black Armour Bed Liner was very soft on my old knees.

I'm interested in any additional feedback on the Leer HF650M. This is the cover I'm leaning towards. Did you order from Leer? How long between order and delivery? I have 3 to 4 weeks before my truck arrives. Thanks.

I ordered from Leer, the Thursday during the WinterStorm. It arrived on Wednesday. Pretty quick. I will let you know how it works. So far I am impressed with it and like it better than my previous Extang Solid 2.0 on my 2016 F150 that I traded in.

Headache Rack.

Anyone considering a headache rack for their limited? I would like to protect the top of the cab if I haul long 2x4's etc... But don't need a cage. Also looking for something that will work with my Leer Toneau cover.
