Can I Add a Ladder Rack to a 2018 Toyota Tundra with Fold Up Tonneau and Deck Rail System  


I’m looking for a bed rack for my Tundra with the bed rail system and I’m wondering if this Rola Haul is the only option without taking off the rail system?

I may have a solution for you, but it's actually not the bed rail system that's going to cause issues; it's the tonneau cover you've got on your 2018 Toyota Tundra. Because that tonneau sits above the rails and mounts where the ladder rack would, you would need to either remove the tonneau altogether or get a new tonneau cover that won't interfere; there are also some options that you can get as an all in one package that would do a great job. The Rola Haul Your Might T3 # 59799 will work with your bed rail management system and actually attaches directly to them, so it would work if you removed the tonneau cover.

For an all-in-one system the Pace Edwards JackRabbit Retractable Tonneau Cover w Utility Rig Rack - Aluminum and Vinyl - Black # JET5379-UR3005 is a great solution that gives you a durable way to carry ladders and other large cargo and comes with a retractable tonneau cover to keep the contents of the truck bed secure.

If you're looking for something a little bit more pocket book friendly then you could piece together a tonneau and ladder rack that will fit. I recommend starting with the BAK Revolver X4s Hard Tonneau Cover - Roll Up - Aluminum and Vinyl - Matte Black # BAK28ZR, which will mount inside the bed rails and gives you a nice, roll up tonneau with a hard backing to provide better security. Then, for the ladder rack I recommend using the Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 500 lbs # A4001665, which won't interfere with the BAK Revolver and gives you a nice ladder rack for your 2018 Tundra Crew Cab.
