Adarac Ladder Rack

Whether you're working or playing, the Adarac Aluminum Series truck bed ladder rack will haul your gear to a higher level. This aluminum rack lets you elevate long construction loads such as ladders, lumber, and pipes or recreational equipment like surfboards, snowboards, kayaks, and more.

Tonneau Cover Compatibility

Lomax Tonneau Compatibility

This ladder rack works with Lomax hard tri-fold covers, Access roll-up covers, and most other inside-the-rail tonneau covers. Pairing your tonneau cover with the Adarac Aluminum creates a seamless, sophisticated look. And the framework of the ladder rack won't interfere with the framework of tonneau covers, in-the-bed toolboxes, or other gear.

Utility Rails and Slotted Crossbars

Adarac Aluminum Utility Rails and Vertical Uprights

Take advantage of the utility rails and slotted crossbars with built-in mounting channels for quickly attaching accessories. Tie-downs (sold separately) attach to the utility rail's mounting channels and can be easily repositioned to secure additional cargo.

The slotted crossbars offer mounting channels on both the top and bottom of each bar. The anti-slip, anti-vibration rubber strip on each crossbar stabilizes your cargo. You can remove the rubber strip to utilize the top mounting channels.

The vertical uprights can be repositioned along or removed from the utility rails to accommodate the size of your load. Included channel nuts allow the uprights to slide closer to or further apart from one another along the rail's mounting channels.

Optional Load Stops

Adarac Load Stops for Crossbars with Mounting Channels

Sold separately are load stops that help contain your cargo and prevent it from shifting. They have integrated tie-down hooks that can be used to strap your load down. The load stops easily attach to the front or rear crossbar mounting channels and can be adjusted along the bars to accommodate the size of your load. Simply slide the load stops along the mounting channels into the desired positions, and then tighten for secure placement.

These load stops are constructed of durable, rustproof aluminum, and they have thick rubber casings to help stabilize cargo.

Easy, No-Drill Installation

Adarac Stake Pocket Inserts and View from Front Side of Truck

The Adarac Aluminum Aluminum Series is easy to install with the included mounting hardware. No drilling is required.

The utility rails mount onto your truck bed rails with the included aluminum stake pocket inserts. The underside of the rails are foam-padded to protect your truck from scratches during installation.

Contoured Aluminum Design

Adarac Streamlined Design Side Rear View

The Adarac offers a heavy-duty, streamlined design with an aluminum framework that is lightweight but tough. The rustproof, UV-resistant construction with an extruded anodized aluminum finish on the crossbars and rails provide added durability.

For a clear view, the contoured uprights are positioned on the truck bed railing, and the crossbars run above your vehicle's roof. The tapered shape of the uprights create a clean look while maintaining durability. Hauling long loads across the durable aluminum crossbars leaves more room for other cargo and accessories in your truck bed.

Love it! Holds my 14.5 ft kayak with no problem even with the 5.5 foot bed. Looks great on my truck! 607290

Review from a similar Aluminum Series in Ladder Racks

The rack is perfect for hauling our Kayaks. I painted mine satin black before I installed it to better match my truck. 655767

Review from a similar Aluminum Series in Ladder Racks

This is a great, sturdy product. I purchased it to carry Kayaks and Canoes on my F150 and it's the only reasonably priced solution I could find that didn't require me to remove my Backflip bed cover. The only drawback is that it uses the stake holes in the bed to attach it and Ford covers the front ones up on the short bed version of the truck. If you have the long bed F150 you won't have any issues. 683549

Review from a similar Aluminum Series in Ladder Racks

This rack is awesome! It fits with the toneau cover on the bed and the two do not interfere with each other. It is built tough, but it's light weight to handle, making it easy for one person to take off and put back on the truck alone. We use it to carry kayaks when we go camping, and got some extra tie-downs to hold the kayaks in place so they won't slide around. We take the rack arms off leaving the bed frames on the truck when not being used, so it's fast to just put the arms of the rack back on when needed. That way there is no need to readjust anything. 855710

  • Adarac Ladder Rack and Bak Revolver Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2' Bed
    For your 2014 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot long bed the Adarac Ladder Rack part # A4001234 is a confirmed fit and is designed for allowing a tonneau cover to fit with it. The Bak Revolver X2 part # BAK39309 would work well for this. It fits your truck and is compatible with the Adarac ladder rack as well.

  • How To Carry Two Kayaks On a Ford F-150 with 5.5' Bed
    In order to haul two kayaks you'll need to use either a roof rack or a ladder rack. The hitch extender options are really only good for one kayak. If the tonneau cover mounts inside the bed and the stake pockets are not covered you can use the Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A4001234 which has integrate channels that will allow you to use a carrier like the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier part # RRS520. In order to provide a roof rack option I will need...

  • Will Adarac A4001234 Ladder Rack and BAK F1 Tonneau Cover Work on 5-1/2 Foot Bed 2013 Ford F-150
    Will the Adarac # A4001234 ladder rack fit with the BAK F1? Yes it will. Will it allow you to fold the cover all the way forward so it sits against the rear window of the truck cab, probably not. The way the uprights angle inward to the inboard side of the truck bed would likely interfere with fully opening the tonneau cover unless it's a roll up cover. This is why Adarac came up with the # A4000964 Pro Series Aluminum Ladder rack. Because the uprights go straight up at a 90° angle, it'll...

  • Will the Adarac Aluminum Series Ladder Rack Work On a 2015 Ford F-150 with Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover
    I know you like the looks of the Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # A4001234 better than the Adarac Pro Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder part # A4000964 but you may not be able to fold the cover up with the Adarac Aluminum Series installed. The uprights as you have noticed will angle inward and this could then not allow you to fold the panels on your tonneau cover back. The Adarac Pro Series has vertical uprights so you will not have any issues trying to fold the panels...

  • Tonneau Cover Compatible with Adarac Aluminum Ladder Rack A4001234
    The BAK BAKFlip G2 hard tonneau cover # BAK26309 that fits the 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2-foot bed without the Bed Cargo Management System is not compatible with the Adarac ladder rack # A4001234. The reason is that this ladder rack has uprights that lean inward; these would interfere with the hard cover as you tried to fold it up toward the cab. A soft roll-up tonneau cover will work and we have covers from Access like their LiteRider # 834532004737 and their Vanish # 834532007646 shown...

  • Dual Kayak Carrier for a 2015 Ford F-150 FX4 SuperCrew with Tonneau Cover
    In order to carry two kayaks on your 2015 Ford F-150 you can do so on the roof with a roof rack or over the bed with a ladder rack. The ladder rack option will be more versatile and can hold more weight but the roof option will be more cost effective. For a roof rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System part # RRVA165B-2, part # RRRLKVA, and part # DK427. This system has aero shaped crossbars for reduced wind noise and locks for security. In order to secure your two...

  • Which Ladder Racks Will Work With The BAK Revolver X2 On A 2018 Ford F-150 Short Bed
    I do have an adjustable truck bed ladder rack for you in the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XTB but unfortunately as this will clamp onto the inside of the bed rails it will not work with any tonneau cover which includes the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK39329. However, I do still have other ladder racks that will work with the Revolver X2 and I have attached those for you below. Adarac Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack - part # A70490 Adarac Aluminum...

  • Difference Between Adarac Aluminum # A4001234 and Pro Series # A4000964 Ladder Racks
    Both the Adarac Aluminum Series Ladder Rack # A4001234 and the Adarac Pro Series # A4000964 that you referenced in your question are confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford F-150 with the 5-1/2 foot bed. Both ladder racks will work well with your roll-up tonneau cover, as long as it installs inside the bed rails. The only real difference between the two models is the design of the uprights, as you mentioned. The Aluminum # A4001234 features a more contoured upright that is designed to match...

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack for a 2020 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    I have some great options for you to use both a tonneau cover and ladder rack on a 2020 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2' bed. However, the best option for you will come down to what you will be using the ladder rack for, utility (lumber/ladders etc.) or recreational (kayaks/bikes etc.). Also, keep in mind that using a tonneau cover and ladder rack together can be tricky as they both generally occupy the same space therefore you will need to follow the combos that I have listed for you below as these...

  • Ladder Rack that Can be Used on 2014 Ford F-150 with BakFlip MX4 Tonneau Cover
    For your 2014 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot long truck bed that has a BakFlip MX4 tonneau part # BAK48309 the Adarac ladder rack like the Aluminum Series # A4001234 will fit and work well since it attaches to the top of the bed rails through the stake pockets. Basically all of the other ladder rack options won't work since they need to wrap around the bed rails but the Adarac option installs differently which is why it fits and works well.
