Pullrite 18K Superglide

Well crap. Just had a new 18K Pullrite installed in my 2014 F350 CC, SRW, SB using their underbed pin and rail kit. I was told by the installer that this setup would work with my Bakflip hard tonneau cover. Guess what - it doesn't. No where near enough clearance to close the top. I tried just pulling the head off the hitch and that helped, but the hitch still contacted the cover. Ended up having to pull the entire hitch off the rails and lay it in the bed of the truck in order to close the top. NOT what I want to do every time I unhook the 5er. Hoping someone has an answer/suggestion here on how to resolve this. I'll add some pictures tomorrow after I put the hitch all back together - just too pissed right now to go deal with it.

I have the Superglide (04 model) installed in my ‘11 F350 4x4 CC 6’9” bed and it sits well below the bed rails and about 1” above the floor of the bed. Hitch has the “ super rail” kit with removable locking pins. Leaves a clean bed when removed. Perhaps you have the extended pins that raise the height of the hitch and just need the shorter “standard” pins. My Demco Glideride pin box allows 8” clearance between bed rails and 5er. Call Pullrite and speak directly with them. Should be doable with your hitch and tow vehicle w/o interfering with a bed cover.
