Bed Cover Question

Does anybody know if there is a company that makes retractable truck bed covers that mount after a tool box? All the ones that I have seen take up the whole bed or they have a tool box that is already built into them, I don't want the ones that have the built in one because if I trade the truck in I can't take that cover with the tool box built in with me, I think those bed covers are vehicle specific enough that it might be a problem to do that(plus I'm rather attached to the tool box that I have, it has seen a lot of action, a few trucks, and is in remarkable shape).

I have seen on that mounts to front (or your tool box) Has rails along sides and latch on tail gate. It just a 6"or 8" square box . and takes little room . I didn't get a close look because I wasn't interested. But they are out there.

I had thought I had seen one when I was looking at truckaddons.com but I couldn't find them there again when I looked that matched my specs. You don't happen to recall the brand do you?

I'll get you the brand of mine and some close up pics in the morning, I took a long bed cover and just shortend the runners so I could use a tool box. You just install the roller box behind your box and put there runners under it and mark where your talegate closes. Then I just used a cutting wheel on the diegrinder. Install was less than an hour

Roll n lock can build it if your dealer can get the work sheets. I modified a Pace Edwards once, but they have one called a tool top that integrates the cover into the tool box.

I appreciate everyone's help, and I wanted to let everyone know I went with a Retrax bed cover and pictures of it are in my gallery for anyone that is interested in seeing it. Bare in mind the truck and bed are already dirty so don't hold that against me.
