Tonneau Cover And Ladder Rack Compatibility On 2017 Ram 1500 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed Without RamBox


2017 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 bed without ramboxes. Im looking for a ladder rack and hard tri fold tonneau cover. Looking at the LoMax tri fold, but unsure if it will fit with the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack. Need options dont like the Bak rak CS as it doesnt have good reviews. But has to look good on the truck. HELP

For your 2017 Ram 1500 5-1/2 foot bed without RamBox, there are options for you to have a ladder rack and tonneau cover. I reached out to my contact at Thule, the maker or TracRac and they can confirm a fit with their TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack - 1,250 lbs, # TH43003XT-784. The rack has been fitted by customers with the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover - Roll Up - Aluminum and Vinyl, # BAK39207.

I then reached out to my contact at BAK Industries, and although they also cannot confirm a fit with the TracRac, said it is the best ladder rack option to use with their covers due to it's stake-pocket installation. They said that their cover rails sit up about 1/8 of an inch and span about 1/2 inch on the bed rails, but that the cover doesn't reach out that far. He said that the Revolver may have more flexability because it doesn't have as rigid an edge.
