Tonneau cover with a toolbox?

Anybody have a tonneau cover on their truck AND a toolbox? I put an Advantage Kwik Draw on my mom's Dakota this weekend and really like it over other tonneau covers... No stupid snaps, removes in 30 seconds, etc. Anybody know of anything like this that will work on a long bed truck with a toolbox? Toolbox is 18" wide, so a short box cover won't work.

Looks good, although I'm not liking the $500+ price tag...

You might put awning rail on the box and sew a flex cover to fit. An angle mounted to the front of the box with foam gasket will help with the water intrusion.

Using a bow to mark the mounting on the awning rail will help shed water also.

Other than a tarp or spray-painting some plywood black, that might be your only option. When the market for a product is as small as it is for a tonneau to fit a truck with a toolbox, prices are bound to go up, e.g. how early '99-specific parts cost more than the equivalent part to fit a '99.5-'04 Superduty.

Or just get an under-the-rail toolbox and find a normal tonneau cover.

From his first post it sounds like he already has the box and now is looking for a tonneau to fit...

Yeah, I know.

I had the box too, but I traded it even for one to go under the rail.

Much happier and my fuel economy improved.
