How To Use a Ladder Rack On a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with Toolbox


I have a 2005 dodge ram 1500 short bed ... I have a tool box going across the back and recommendations for a ladder rack would be appreciated. Im tired of putting oversized items through treat cab window.

I have two options for your 2005 Dodge Ram 1500. The first of which is a very basic and easy to install ladder rack in the MaxxHaul Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # MT70386 which will get the job done but you will need to either place the first upright behind the toolbox or move the toolbox back and then place the upright in front of this.

The other premium option I have would be to use the Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH27000XTB with the Toolbox Mount Kit part # TH41000. This would allow you to keep your toolbox where it is at and have the largest spread for your ladder rack.
