Q. Will the use of either
the K-Cover impede the use of the Utili-Track?
In the Photo Gallery, there are some pictures of the K-Cover
Installation of the rack system that should go a long
way to help you understand how the cover installs onto
the Nissan TITAN Utili-Track System. Our cover requires
some Utili-Track space to install the cover and latch
brackets. That means with the K-Cover (or any other cover)
you will not have use of your Utili-Track System wherever
brackets are installed and you may have some minor limitations.
That is not only with our cover, but with any other cover
that installs on to the Utili-Track or any other accessory
installed on the track. Wherever that installation hardware
is required to attach to the track, you will have some
limited use of your Utili-Track. The Utili-Track is still
usable, but where hardware is installed, you will have
That is, can a bed extender or bed divider be used at all
(including any limited use) at the same time the covers
See installation pictures in the Photo Gallery for the
answer better than it can be explained. However, in the
picture you see…regarding the bed extender…there
is no need for the “stop” to be reinstalled
(that takes up more valuable track space) in front of
the last bracket. When the cover hardware is installed,
the rearmost bracket should act as your “stop”
for the track (so your bed extender or any other accessory
doesn’t slide out of the end of the track). This
will add a few more inches of usable space for your track
and a few extra inches so you can extend your bed extender
out even further.
give you some good measurements to work with, the rear
bracket is 4 inches wide and takes up 4 inches of track.
The stop that is installed at the very back of the track,
when installed is about 1 inch wide. If you install the
rear bracket for the K-Cover in place of the “stop”
(and remove the “stop” completely), you will
lose only 3 inches at the rear most portion of your track.
This means that when the tailgate is open, and the bed
extender is “extended” out onto the tailgate,
your bed extender won’t go all the way to the very
edge of the tailgate as before, but will come up approximately
3 inches away from the edge of the tailgate as before.
We think that is pretty good….to lose only 3 inches
and still have a drill-less installation of a tonneau
What about tie down hooks? Alternatively if the cover is
removed can these accessories be used or is the mounting
hardware left in the tracks requiring there removal as well
to fully utilize the utility track system?
See pictures attached. For the K-Cover, there are 4 brackets
installed on each side Utili-Track with each bracket being
4 inches wide. This means that for the entire length of
the track (Approximately 60 inches or so), you will have
16 inches taken up by hardware (4 brackets each 4 inches
wide). This leaves the remainder (approx. 44 inches) of
side track available for you to install other accessories
in those spaces. NOTE: There is absolutely no hardware
installed on the front part of the Utili-Track, so that
entire track is completely usable just as before.
