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.

Video Transcript for Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack Manufacturer Installation

Speaker 1: Assembly threaded clamp and alignment plates to cord. Then tie knot at top of cord. Insert channel nuts into rack rail. Insert end caps into both sides of rack rail. Tighten end cap retaining screws. Repeat for remaining rack rail.

While holding knotted end of cord, drop clamp into stake pockets. Line up clamp and alignment plates with stake pockets. With clamp and alignment plates flush against stake pockets, place washer over slotted hole, and turn hex bolt until finger tight. Repeat for remaining stake pockets.For easy removal of internal parts later, make single knot at each end. When complete, fully tight rack rail bolts.

At top of upright, thread hex bolts from bottom into mounting bracket. Leave mounting bracket loose, for now. Repeat for each upright. Measure and record mounting distance between inside rack rails at front and rear locations, as box width may vary. Slide mounting bracket into crossbar channel.

Space bottom of uprights to match measurement recorded earlier. Center crossbar, then turn bolts snug. Then install end caps to both sides of crossbar. Repeat for remaining uprights.Set upright assembly between rack rails. Uprights should fit snug.

Next, align channel nuts with bolt holes in uprights. Thread bolts into nuts and finger tighten. Check for equal distance from box edge to upright. If equal, use ratchet with socket to tighten bolts snug. Repeat for rear uprights.Verify uprights are installed correctly. The crossbar centers without binding between uprights. Then fully tighten all bolts until serrations on flanges are seated tightly.

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
