Tonneau cover on over the edge type bed liner?

How would I go about putting a tonneau cover on an my ranger which as a bed liner that wraps up over the top side of the truck bed?
Has anyone ever done this and what did you do to make it work?

How do you bolt the tonneau cover frame to the bed or liner?
Do I need to drill holes in the liner?

I should also mention that my liner is not a factory ford liner if that would makea difference

Nah I dont think so.
I am almost certain that my bedliner does not indent underneath the edge of the bed like yours does. Its just a straight up.

When I put a Contico tuff box on it last winter, I had to drill 2 holes to allow the mounting hardware to catch the underneath of that lip.

I was hoping that I would not have to drill 6+ holes for all the tonneau cover hardware.

You have a stepside or fleetside? I know the caps on the rails are different for both. MAybe that has something to do with it?

is your bedliner one peice? if so then youd have to either cut off the 'over the rail' part... or cut some holes in it for the clamps....

what theyre showing is an under the rail one with some bed rail caps...

Well I didnt get to take pics of my bedliner. It is a Rugged Liner brand liner and I am definitely gonna have to modify or remove it to put a tonneau on.

Anyone have any suggestions on the best place to buy a soft tonneau cover and under the rail bed liner?
