Best Ladder Rack For BAKFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover on 2016 Ford F-150 With 5-1/2 Foot Bed


Looking for the best rack system in combination with the Bakflip mx4. I have a 2016 F150 with the 5.5’ bed.

The best option for a ladder rack system for your 2016 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed and the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48329 is the Thule sliding ladder rack:

- Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508

The TracRac SR # TH43002XT-508 will work with the BAKFlip because your tonneau leaves the bed rails open, so the TracRac will be able to mount directly on your F-150's rails. Other options require the inside of the rails to be available to mount, so this is exactly what you'll need with the MX4.

Aside from just fitting your truck and tonneau though, the The TracRac is also the strongest, most durable, and quietest ladder rack for your truck. It has a 1,250 lb capacity, which is far more than any other rack, is made of aluminum to prevent corrosion (other racks are steel so they will rust), and has channels which allow you to mount accessories in it.
