Recommended Ladder Rack For A 2017 Ram 1500 With Tonneau Cover


Im looking for a ladder rack for my 2017 Ram 1500 with factory tonneau cover. I have two kayaks to haul. Can you recommend something that will work with my existing cover?


Expert Reply:

Without knowing the tonneau cover used on your 2017 Ram 1500 I can't completely confirm the fitment of any ladder racks. That being said, if your tonneau cover mounts to the inner lip of the bedrails and stays inside the bed, leaving the top of the bedrails open you could install a ladder rack that mounts inside the stake pockets like the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack - 1,250lbs # TH43003XT-000 you were looking at.

This adjustable ladder rack slides in unique, T-track base rails along the full length of your vehicle's bed making it perfect for long loads, short loads, and everything in between. It has integrated, quick-release clamping knobs that can be loosened to move rack or tightened to secure it in place. The rack can be removed from track quickly and easily to allow for full bed access if you're hauling taller objects like a fridge or furniture. It has 4 heavy-duty, aluminum load stops included as well as 4 side cleats attached to the uprights for additional tie-down options.

If you have a 6-1/2' bed you'll want part # TH43003XT-501 instead.
If you have a 5-1/2' bed you'll want part # TH43003XT-784 instead.
