Recommended Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack for a 2020 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed


I just got a 2020 F-150 and want to install a tonneau cover and ladder rack but unsure of my options?


Expert Reply:

I have some great options for you to use both a tonneau cover and ladder rack on a 2020 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2' bed. However, the best option for you will come down to what you will be using the ladder rack for, utility (lumber/ladders etc.) or recreational (kayaks/bikes etc.). Also, keep in mind that using a tonneau cover and ladder rack together can be tricky as they both generally occupy the same space therefore you will need to follow the combos that I have listed for you below as these have all been proven and tested together.

Recreational Option:

Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-508
BAK Revolver X4 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK79329

The Thule TracRac SR is best for recreational use because the crossbars are of a standard size so most kayak carriers and bike racks will clamp around them no problem.

Utility Option One:

Adarac Custom Ladder Rack part # A70490 or Adarac Aluminum Series Ladder Rack part # A4001234
Access Original Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover part # A11369 or (See First List Below)

Utility Option Two:

Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A4000964
BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK48329 or (See Second List Below)

The Adarac Truck Bed Ladder Racks are best for utility use such as hauling lumber and ladders etc. because the crossbars are not a standard size so most kayak carriers and bike racks will not fit them. Please note, you must use the roll-up type covers with the angled upright racks to allow for proper clearance.
