Tonneau Cover and bed liner

I'm new to the ranger world. About three months ago I purchased my first pick-up truck, a 2000 XL standard cab with a factory bed liner. I would like to install a roll up Tonneau cover. However, all the pics I've seen of Rangers with Tonneau covers don't seem to have a bed liner.
Is it possible to install a cover and keep the bed liner in place?

Yeah you can do it. I would assume your talking about tw factory drop in liner? If so I would remove it ecause over time it can cause rust by trapping water under it and between the bed. Get a spray in liner or a bed mat and you will be better off.

I agree with Adam. I didn't even look at drop ins when I bought my truck. It might be costly but it's worth every penny.

^ Agreed.

If you want to keep the bedliner, is yours over the rail or under? If it's under you're fine but if it's over you may have to cut part of it to clamp the tonneau cover down.
