Ladder Rack Recommendation for Carrying Kayak with 2018 Nissan Titan and Utili-Track System  


Hello. I have a 2018 Nissan Titan crew cab with utilitrac and am looking for a ladder type bed rack for hauling kayaks. Would like to find something that allows me to keep utilitrac installed. Do you sell anything compatible? Thank you

It sounds like you like to use your 2018 Nissan Titan for recreational use and because of that the Yakima OverHaul HD is the perfect ladder rack for you. For this ladder rack you can either get it with the 68" Bars as part # Y01151-5868 or you can get it with the 78" Bars as part # Y01151-5968. The even better thing about this system is that it actually uses the Utili-Track System on your Titan for the installation so you won't have to remove it. I've attached an installation video of this on a 2019 Tundra with the track system for you to check out.

The OverHaul HD doesn't have quite as much weight capacity as the more traditional ladder racks (weight capacity is 500 lbs) but that's because this isn't a traditional ladder rack; it was made for people who love to participate in recreational activities like kayaking. For example, this system allows you to easily use accessories like Eye Bolts # Y01162, SideBar Rails # Y01153, the TopGrip Holder # Y04086, and the Ladder Roller # Y01163 to maximinze the amount of things we can take with us on our adventures. I've attached videos of each of these for you to check out.

If you don't already have kayak carriers then one of my favorites is the Yakima JayLow # Y04073. This can be used for 1 or 2 kayaks (with extra straps like parts # Y04031 and # Y05006, can be folded down when not in use, and since these are Yakima like the OverHaul HD we can get everything keyed alike with the lock core set # Y07204.
