Recommended Truck Bed Ladder Rack For 2018 Ram 1500 That Has WeatherTech Tonneau Cover

I did some research and it looks like the WeatherTech Tri-Fold tonneau cover for your 2018 Ram 1500 is possibly mounted inside the bed rails, in which case it would be compatible with a ladder rack that mounts on top of the truck bed rails. You will want to look at yours and make sure that it mounts inside the rails and not on top of the rails.

The Yakima OverHaul Ladder Rack # Y01151-58 is the correct version for your 2018 Ram 1500, but this will not work with a tonneau cover unless it is the Retrax XR cover which you do not have. For a ladder rack compatible with an inside-the-rail tonneau cover I would look into the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack. This is a really nice ladder rack and it is the most popular option when looking for a setup compatible with inside-the-rail tonneau covers. The crossbars have a T-slot top channel for channel-mounted accessories and the upright bars slide forward or backward on the track for a lot of adjustability.
