Ladder Rack for Pace Edwards Full-Metal JackRabbit w/Explorer Rails on 2017 Ford F-150 5-1/2' Bed


Hi - Im looking at this hard cover, but I also want to ensure that Ill be able to purchase a compatible ladder rack for my 2017 F150 STX w/ 5 1/2 ft bed - preferably an over the cab rack if possible. Ive found 311-CR6007, but in some configurations it suggest this may be incompatible? It is not listed as compatible on Pace Edwardsfoot site. I also know the explorer rails are compatible with Yakima and Thule accessories, but have been unable to find a ladder rack supporting more than 200 lbs may need to haul some lumber as well. Can you point me in the right direction for this cover+rack combo? I like the explorer rails due to their wide compatibility. Thanks!

Great choice in using the Pace Edwards Full-Metal JackRabbit Hard Tonneau Cover w Explorer Rails # 311-FEFA05A28 on your 2017 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2' bed!

I reached out to my contact at Pace Edwards who said that the Contractor Rig Rack Truck Bed Ladder Rack that you need for your 5-1/2' bed is actually part # 311-CR3009 instead of part # 311-CR3007 that you referenced. This is the same product, it's just tailored to your specific vehicle configuration.

There are some Yakima and Thule fits but as of right now (August 2019) those are only roof rack options that sit right above your bed rails so they wouldn't promote clearance over the cab for hauling lumber.
