6.6' Short bed 09 Silverado w/ toolbox tonneau cover tip.
So a few months ago I got a tonneau cover for my truck with the 6.6' bed and a tool box. NOWHERE did I see that it wont work for the low profile tool box and a bed with bed rail guards...
I was super excited for it to finally come and when the day came to put it on it wouldn't fit! ANDDD it was covering the handles for my tool box so even if I could get it on there I still couldn't open my toolbox.
I tried selling it but no bites and I was sick of seeing it in the garage so I called one of my friends over to help me muscle it on there. Long story short I made it fit and to beat the problem of not being able to open the toolbox I ran a cable to the inside of the box so it can be opened from the tailgate. Overall I think it looks and works great because nobody would be able to figure out how to open the toolbox without opening my tailgate that locks. therefore I WIN!
I try to get new pics up soon and if anyone else runs into the same problem let me know and I'll try to help ya out

Sounds like you came up with a way to make "lemonade out of lemons". I've wanted a bed cover for my "short" bed crew cab w/tool box, but none are available that I know of.
