I’m looking for a Retracting Tonneau Cover for my 07,CC. Does anyone have any feedback on a manufacture or style?
Will they work with the Utilitrak tie downs in the bed or is it necessary to remove the tie down rack..thanks

-Retrax

You will lose almost 10" of bed space.

I love my Retrax. I have it on an 06 Frontier with the Utility package. It uses brackets rather than the clamps that come with non-utility beds.

I have the pace edwards electric, and it is the most useful item I installed on my truck. Had it 2 years and have not had any trouble out of it. It mounts with some clamps so I think it would interfere with utli track.

I put a Pace Edwards on my and you will have to remove some of the rack. You can flip the back tracks and drop them down to the lower holes and they work fine.

I had a retrax on my Tundra, and liked it so much, they used my testimonial on their website.

You absolutely cannot beat the retrax. The ONLY reason I have not put one on the Titan is that I don't want to lose the 11"...the Tundra had a longer box. Also, you can't tie up against the cannister...it is not structural, so loading a motorcyle or mower, or anything for that matter up against it is a no-no. But for functionality, security and looks, it is by far the best.

Forget the cost, you will be happy with it and consider it well worth the $800 or so that it costs.

I just had the retrax put on my '06 LE KC and like it. You lose the use of the front utilitrak and I can't pull the cover past any cleats installed on the driver's side of the bed as the lock on the retrax hits it. The cleat will go on if you have to haul something with the retrax open but the cleat has to come off to close the retrax.

i have retrax with utilitrac. it will work work the cleats just grind down the drivers side cleat a bit. you cant even tell it's been grinded. retrax is the best. it has a glossy black finish, lockable, and has the lowest profile.

Have you ever had the pace edwards? If not how do you know the retrax is the best? The pace edwards is just as low a profile, it is also has a black finish, and is electric, so any time it is closed it is locked. It doesn't need to be locked after it is closed. It also can be opened to ANY position, not just the preset 12 inches apart. I live on a very rough dirt road that is 3 miles long and dusty and I have not had any problems with the pace edwards cover.

I too have a retrax. I bought extra cleats so that I could mill some off of the ones on the driver's side and leave them in place. I made a wooden block to rest under the canister to rest on the box front when hauling something that might hit the canister. It prevents the load shifting into it. I do wish the front utility track was lowered so it too could be used...

The Retrax can be opened and locked in any position...it is not limited by any increments of 12". Infinite positions.

For $800.00, I'd have to say this is the best cover for the buck. The speed of access to the box cannot be beat by any other cover, no matter what. About the only other one I would consider would be the electric version as mentioned above, becuase the others require a trailing cord that you have to pull on to close the cover from the fully open position. you can't just pull on one side or they will bind. I think the electric version is getting close to double the price though, is it not?

Truly the only disadvantage to the retrax is the cannister itself. If you don't do a lot of motorcycle loading, or similar types of things, no problem.

I carefully installed the tailgate seals and my retrax doesn't even leak water. I stuck the drainage tubes through the gap between the bed floor and the back wall of the bed. To do this, I had to stick a large screwdriver through the hole and work it open a little bit. Don't worry, you won't pop any of the spot welds.

I got the retrax b/c I want to put all my kid's junk in back when we're traveling and not worry about it getting wet - it works.
