Ladder Rack Compatible with TruXedo Lo Pro QT Tonneau Cover for 2014 Ford F-150


I have a 2014 f150, 6.5 foot bed. Will the Maxxhaul 70386 work with the Truxedo low pro QT 598101? Also, I have factory plastic bed rail covers. Will the Maxxhaul rack work with those? If not is there another way to mount the rack and keep the plastic rails installed?

I have a solution for you, but the MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack # MT70386 will not work with the TruXedo Lo Pro QT # TX598101. Since the ladder rack will extend down into the truck bed where the tonneau cover is installed, these components would occupy the same space and not install correctly.

For a ladder rack that will work with the Lo Pro QT # TX598101, you will want a ladder rack that installs only on top of the truck bed sides. I recommend the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-501. This ladder rack mounts in the stake pockets of your truck and will set on top of the bed's side rails.

If you decide not to use a tonneau cover with the MaxxHaul Ladder Rack # MT70386, the rack can be installed on top of the factory plastic rail cover.

I have a 2006 Toyota Tundra double-cab with 6.5' bed and a Truxedo Lo Pro QT #545101 tonneau cover, Will the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-501 work on my vehicle?

Yes, since the Lo Pro QT # TX545101 installs inside the bed rails, it'll be compatible with the Thule TracRac SR Ladder Rack, which for your Tundra is part # TH43002XT-505. Just note that the base rails of the TracRac do extend just a bit over the bed, so you might get a little resistance when rolling up the Lo Pro cover once it's in place.
