tonneau/bed cover

Does anybody know of a tonneau/box cover, that is even with the top of the bed rails? I suppose the mounting hardware would have to mount on the inside of the box rails.
I would like to put something on, but am hesitant on losing the clearance between the 5er and the truck.

I use one that is shallow and sits on top of my bed rails about an inch. I don't have an issue with clearance.

The electric roll type is almost even with the bed rails but..........a lot of money. Nice, but a lot of money. Friends got one.

Trouble is, I don't have an inch to spare.
I did find this one. Looks pretty good, but, a lot of money.

the style tonneau I have is easy on/off the truck, you could take it off the truck entirely when towing. this is what I have. It can be on and off in less than 10 min.

Thanks!!
I will take a look, but not today. I'm on a mission. The rig comes out of the shed (finally) today. Gets water system sanitized and a good washing. Top to bottom.

I use a "rollbak aluminum bed cover that rolls up into a canister at the front of my bed. This is my second one. My first one was on a 6ft bed and my current truck has a 8 ft bed. I also have a 35 gallon fuel tank (made by American Tank) that fits under it in the front of the cab as well so there's no wasted space. The cover can be closed over the top of my B&W hitch and is 100% level with the top of my F350 bedrails

I went with the aluminum fuel tank so I could take it from truck to truck, whereas the "Titian", I would loose once I traded trucks.

It's on the way. I couldn't find anything else that fit the bill for me.
