TracRac Base Rails

TracRac SR Sliding Rack Base Rails

The TracRac base rails provide the foundation for this unique, customizable system. No-drill, stake-pocket installation yields securely mounted rails that sit atop your factory side rails. Each rail has 2 tracks for maximum adjustability.


TracRac Sliding Rack

Because the rack section at the front of your truck bed mounts to a different T-track than the one in the rear, the sections can be moved so that they are right next to each other. The result is unobstructed access to your truck bed and improved aerodynamics when you are not using the rack.


TracRac offers accessories that are designed to mount in these tracks. Base rail tie-downs (sold separately) give you additional cargo-management options. These rustproof, aluminum tie-downs slide across the rails for optimal placement and are secured in place with the turn of a knob.


TracRac Slotted Crossbars

The sturdy aluminum crossbars on all TracRac truck racks feature integrated slots for mounting and easily adjusting accessories, such as the included load stops. These slots appear on both the top and bottom of the bars for the ultimate in mounting versatility. Like the pieces that mount in the base rails, these accessories also have quick-release knobs that let you loosen and tighten them with a mere twist of a knob so that they can be positioned as needed along the bars.


A built-in trip strip at the front of each crossbar shields the slots from wind, maintaining the aerodynamic quality of the bars and preventing that annoying whistle you often find with slotted bars.


Included Tie-Downs

TracRac Load Stop Accessories

Included with your TracRac SR are 8 tie-down accessories. The 4 load stops are designed to mount in the slots of the crossbars and slide along them for quick, easy adjustment. These bookend-style pieces help to hold ladders and lumber in place on the crossbars. They also have built-in loops for securing tie-down straps.


TracRac ARC Side Cleats

The 4 cleats attach at any of the provided mounting points along the outsides of the upright supports so that you can tie down items that require additional anchoring or that sit in your truck bed.


Sturdy, Rustproof Construction

The TracRac base rails and rack system, as well as most TracRac accessories, are constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum. Because aluminum is lighter than steel - the material most often used for truck racks - only a small percentage of your truck's cargo capacity is taken up by the rack itself, enabling you to pack on more weight than you could with a steel system.


Even though aluminum is already rustproof in itself, TracRac has taken the extra step of adding a dual powder coat finish to further protect your rack. The electrostatic powder coat (e-coat) clings to the metal surface better than traditional paint finishes for a more durable covering. The second coat is a clear finish that adds extra shine and protection from scuffs and scratches.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks


I have been planning to buy these for years. Now that I finally bit the bullet, I'm quite happy with the product. Installation was simple and straight forward and the flexibility of the rack is great. At first I had hoped to reuse an old rack that I bought on CL with new base rails and cantilever extension from etrailer. While the old racks still worked with the base rails, the cantilever extension package didn't interface properly. I ended up opting to buy all new parts for the sake of simplicity. I'll put the used rack back on CL. I did have some problems with the order initially due to incorrect parts being in the package, but customer service at etrailer was top notch and everyone I spoke with was helpful. We ironed out the problems and etrailer sent out new parts immediately. What could have been a frustrating experience was turned into a slightly prolonged but easy process of getting a great rack on my truck. Thanks! 270839

Bought new Trac Rac SR racks. Great price, fast delivery. One small piece to the system was missing which prevented me from installing the racks. Contacted George and he had the missing part shipped out right away. Seems the missing piece was the factory's fault not etrailers. Will use again in the future. 462111

Great product! Packaging could be better for the larger pieces (rub marks). My 2018 Ram 1500 quad cab came with some small challenges that I had to solve myself. No videos or written words available. Basically if your bed rails are covered with a bed liner you need to remove the plastic sleeve in the rear stake pockets. Otherwise you won’t get an equal spacing from one rail to the other. You will also need to use the provided rubber tape with the wedges in order to make the rails level. Otherwise it went together great. 706744

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks


The TH43002XT-781EX installed onto my 2016 GMC 2500 HD Sierra 6-1/2 bed Denali pickup truck without drilling any holes. Total install time including the cantilever took about 2 1/2 hours with two people. The tools we used included a wide range of metric hex keys, a crescent and some metric open-endeds. The base rails mounted to the bed rails using a threaded aluminum insert for the rear stake pockets (which align with a thru-hole already present in the bed) and an expanding rubber bushing for the front stake pockets (since the front pockets don't have a thru-hole). Evidently some pickup rails cant to one side or another so the base rail install kit includes shims but my truck did not require them. Once installed the rails are rock solid and subsequently the racks are also rock solid. The cantilever comes with replacement saddles that mount up to the rack with a total of 12 bolts making the ensemble nearly missile proof. Almost all bolts are pre-treated with thread locker. My truck already has knobby tires so I did not notice any particular additional wind noise. My plan for the TracRac is to attach a custom mounted Rhino-Rack, which we'll be doing ourselves. I like this product because the fitment on etrailer was reliable and I did not have to drill any holes or use any special tools. The rack is also ridiculously heavy duty, which is more than up to the job of holding the Rhino-Rack I'm going to custom fit to it. We'll be doing some off-roading so this heavy equipment gives me a lot of confidence. Thule always makes great products and I am delighted with the TracRac and I'm very happy with etrailer's site. 787439

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks


This is a high quality product. The parts are all well made, and most everything is either stainless or aluminum, so it should last a long time. I bought it because my Kargo Master Pro-II was rusting up badly in only about eight years. Assembly isn't easy. Takes lots of time to get the rails level and evenly spaced, needs to be near perfect for the uprights to slide easily. And, there are just a lot of parts to put together. Assembly took a little longer because the instructions didn't match the kit in one area. The manual tells you to pre-assemble a bunch of fasteners, but then you realize that your parts don't have slots, like the instructions expect, but rather holes instead. So, the parts needed to be unassembled, then reassembled again, this time through the holes. No biggie, but it added to the time necessary. Be nice if the clips up on top could be easily removed when not in use. They look strange, and add height to your truck. I only ordered two of the tie-downs with the rack, should have ordered four so that shipping would be free. They are expensive, but nice. They didn't suggest it in the manual, but I think it would be a good idea to use anti-sieze on the hardware, I'm a little worried about galling down the road when disassembly is necessary. Stainless is prone to do that. In summary, though, this is a dang nice rack! I don't regret the purchase at all. 302432

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks


The rack system is very well put together. I only had a couple of issues with the instalation. There wasn't any directions with the base rails, so it took a bit to figure out how it went together and what holes to use for my truck. The canteilever kit, The top bolt that holds the cross bar should be a button screw and square nut, not a square head bolt and nut. with the square head bolt and nut it could interfere with a long load since it sticks up and could catch on anything being loaded . All and all a nice rack. I got this type of rack hoping that I could slide the rear post forward as to not interfere with my 5th wheel when towing it. That part is yet to be dedurmined. 526720

This is essentially the same rack TracRac has been making for years – great materials and very well engineered. It is not spec'ed for a Gen2 Toyota Tacoma, because the composite bed doesn't have stake pockets – but after I popped off the plastic bed side caps, there were lots of options for attachment. You just have to be comfortable drilling holes in the rack and in the sheet metal of your truck. In the end, it looks and functions great. 591638

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks


Product is great and installed easily once I figured out that for my Ram 1500 Laramie, the pocket stakes are too big for the rubber blocks and won't work and I did have to drill thru the plastic molding. Once I figured out the stake holes wouldn't work I looked at the drawing again and the holes where Tundra is listed gave me the idea to try those. Those holes worked on the Ram and I ended up drilling out the "spikes" that hold the molding onto the sheet metal. No drilling thru the sheet metal was required, only the plastic. Maybe I missed an install video for the Ram, it would have made the install much quicker and I wouldn't have to buy covers for my now cut out front stake pocket holes which weren't covered by the rails as I hoped they would. I haven't installed the cantilever as I don't need it yet. 666596

Very happy with the rack on my 2018 Silverado. I also have the Back flip hard top bed cover. I am able to open all but the very last position. I might still be able to adjust the rails and to get there but it hasn't been an issue. Used it to haul lumber and I made a bicycle rack that works with the racks and the bed cover down. Works great. Was not hard to install. 705960

I ordered the TracRac SR (sliding rack) for my 2019 Ram 3500. It took a while to get here, probably due to the current situation weall in. It came in 3 boxes on 2 days. (Just so you know what you'll be looking for) everything was packaged very secure in the boxes. I order the Cantilever with mine, so I had to swap out a couple parts. No big deal. Everything was explained in the instructions. It took me about 3 hours to install. The hardest part was getting the bed rails to align. I got them within 1/16th of an inch. Good enough. The rack is a great addition to the truck. I stepped down from an 8ft bed to this 6ft 4in bed. So this was a necessity. The rack is solid. I'll be putting it to work right away 816250

  • Thule TracRac SR for Ford F150 Super Crew 5.5 Bed with Folding Tonneau
    The Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack - 1,250 lbs # TH43002XT-508 will work well with your BakFlip tonneau. The only thing that you will need to do with a folding cover like that is to move the rack forward and back as needed when folding. The side rails aren't an issue but the uprights of the rack lean inward and will be an issue at certain points for the straight edges of the tonneau pieces. Moving them forward and back will work well and allow you to use both.

  • Compatibility of BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover with Thule TracRac Sliding Ladder Rack
    The BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK48122 is a great tonneau cover with the inside bed rails to allow for stake pocket mounted accessories. The Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Cantilever # TH43002XT-780EX will fit properly with this cover, however because it is a folding cover, you will need to slide the uprights on the ladder rack when folding the tonneau because the uprights angle inward. If you want a fixed rack that will also work with your cover, the Adarac...

    The TracRac Sr ladder rack that is designed to fit your Sierra 2500 if it has a 6-1/2 ft bed is part #TH43002XT-781.

  • Ladder Rack Compatible With Tonneau Cover on 2017 Chevy Silverado ZX7
    The TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH27000XTB is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Chevy Silverado ZX7, but it will not work with a roll up tonneau cover.

For a ladder rack and tonneau combination that work together we have the TruXedo Lo Pro QT Soft Tonneau Cover # TX571501 and the Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack # DZ951800.

  • Ladder Rack and Compatible Tonneau Cover for 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500
    In order to use a ladder rack and a Tonneau cover at the same time, you'll need to use a ladder rack that mounts to the top of the bed side, rather than clamping to the inside of the bedside. You'll need to go with a Tonneau that mounts to the inside of the top of the bed side, rather than sitting on top of the bed side. For a ladder rack, the TracRac # TH43002XT-780 is the only ladder rack we offer that would leave the inside of the bed rail free to mount a Tonneau cover. For a Tonneau...

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover with Thule TracRac Ladder Rack on 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Racks actually represents one of the few ladder racks available that are compatible with tonneau covers because they mount to the top of the bed rails. This leaves the inside of the bed rails free to accommodate mounting hardware from inside-the-rail tonneau covers. If your Silverado has the 5-1/2 foot bed you will need part # TH43002XT-782, for the 6-1/2 foot bed you will need # TH43002XT-781, and for the 8 foot bed you will use part #...

  • Best Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack Combination for a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 with an 8 foot Bed
    The best tonneau cover/roof rack combination that we have to offer for your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 with an 8 foot bed is the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK39122 with the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-780. The Revolver X2 is one of my favorite tonneau covers to recommend because it combines the sleek look of a roll up cover with the strength and durability of a hard cover.

  • Will TracRac Sliding Ladder Rack and TruXedo Lo Pro QT Cover Both Fit 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Yes, you can use a TracRac sliding ladder rack with a TruXedo Lo Pro QT Tonneau cover on your 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 double cab.

  • Tonneau Cover Compatible Ladder Rack for 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500
    Since your Truxedo LoPro tonneau cover mounts to the inside edges of the top of the bed side, leaving the tops of the bed sides free, the Thule TracRac SR ladder rack would indeed work for you, but not the one you'd looked at. The # TH43003XT-785 is a fit for a Ford, but there are models that will fit your Chevy. For the short bed, you'd use # TH43002XT-781 or # TH43002XT-780 for the long bed.
