Recommended High Capacity Roof Rack for Camper Shell on 2002 Toyota Tacoma  


I have a 2002 Tacoma 4WD TRD. I am about to throw a Snugtop on the back or equivalent shell rated at 500 lbs. I aim to throw a roof top tent on the shell roughly 150-175lbs. Can you recommend a rack that could attach to the shell that is also rated at 500 lbs? Thanks for giving it a ponder!

After looking at several possibilities, I found the TracRac truck camper shell ladder rack part # TH29200XT. This rack has a capacity equal to that of the camper shell.

I've confirmed the weight capacity with my TracRack representative, who confirms that if your camper shell has a 500 lb capacity, the rack will as well. The rack uses stainless steel hardware, it's recommended that you use anti-seize compound, part # LT37616 on the threads of the hardware.
