Animation of Invis a Rack raised and lowered

It's the Houdini of ladder racks. The Invis-A-Rack is there when you need it and virtually invisible when you don't. The rack simply folds away in seconds. Be a professional by day and a civilian on date night.

Convenient Pop-Up Design

DeeZee Invisarack with right front upright raisedDeeZee Invisarack with right front upright and crossbar raised

To use the rack, raise the 2 main vertical support bars at the cab end, and then unfold the horizontal connecting arms.

Connect the horizontal arms, or crossbars, using the pull-out section stored inside the bar.

Repeat these steps with the supports at the tailgate end. In minutes, you'll have a sturdy ladder rack to support your cargo.

Hidden Ladder Rack

Invis a Rack bed rail storage cases inside view

The Invis-A-Rack can be folded down when you want it out of the way. The uprights for the ladder rack fold at the hinges and store inside the built-in bed rail cases.

This erector-set-like versatility makes it easy to adjust the rack on the go. You can fold down just the tailgate-end rack supports to make it easier to load your truck bed, and then put them back up to strap a load onto the rack. This is also a great system if you need a ladder rack but still want to use your fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch for towing. Just fold down the rear uprights, and you can easily hook up your trailer. Worried about clearance while turning? Fold down the section of rack near the cab as well to give your trailer all the room it needs.

Bed-Rail-Mounted Storage Cases

Invis a Rack bed rail storage cases outside view

The black storage cases complement your vehicle's trim and allow your ladder rack to virtually disappear into the truck bed rails when stored. Each case has a small storage box built into the middle. Pack your bungee cords and tie-down straps into the 2 boxes so you'll always have them on hand when you need to secure a load.

No one wants to think about work during their time off. With the Invis-A-Rack, it takes just moments to leave your workday behind when you head out for a night on the town. Simply fold down the rack and store it away.

Strong, Versatile Truck Bed Ladder Rack

Invis a Rack carrying ladder and pipe

When raised, this pop-up rack lets you transport ladders, lumber, and other long equipment to your job site.

Invis a Rack carrying canoe

Or you can take the day off and strap on a kayak, canoe, or hunting equipment using special mounting accessories (sold separately). With a 500-lb capacity, this rack hauls plenty of gear for work or play.

Better Fuel Economy

Ladder racks are great when you need to haul your equipment, but they're not so great when they sit unused on your truck, acting as a bulky windbreak that costs you at the gas pump. But the Invis-A-Rack stores quickly when you don't need it, so it reduces the added fuel cost that comes from carrying a permanently raised ladder rack. And because it is constructed of lightweight aluminum, this sturdy rack boosts your hauling ability without adding a lot of gas-sucking weight to your truck.

Quick, Easy, No-Drill Installation

Installing the rack is as simple as using it. Attach the included 1/8" thick foam strips to the bottom of each storage case to provide a cushion between the storage units and your truck bed rails. Then mount the storage boxes to your vehicle's bed rails with the 8 included heavy-duty clamps. One person can install the rack in about 10 minutes. An Invis-A-Rack makes your life easier from start to finish.

2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Super product! Well constructed, sturdy, and easy to put together/install. Looking forward to receiving/using my other etrailer purchases and future sourcing from them.

Couldnt be more pleased. Two end caps fell off due to inadequate gluing but DeeZee, after a single call, promptly mailed me two more. Great product support!!

Review from a similar Invis-A-Rack in Ladder Racks

The direct shipment was boxed much more carefully and did not appear to have any shipping and handling damage like the previous delivery.
It is very unfortunate though, that at this price point, the product requires so much hand tuning to make work.
I realize now upon further inspection that the "in use" pictures show the black mounting hardware and the factory pictures show the unpainted bare aluminum hardware..... So all the mounting hardware had to be painted black to match the rack.
Again, half of the plastic in place arrived broken.
The keyhole slots in which the plastic end/joining plates insert into were not milled or formed correctly on any of the four pieces of the folding rack, all had to be hand tooled to fit and then repainted.
The product is advertised as black powder coated, but not only is the interior but also parts of the exterior are not fully powder coated.
Lastly there are nicks and dings on the exterior casing of the rack.
So all in all... After two shipments and $xxx I guess this is simply the level of quality we get.... It's unfortunate and I'm unpleased with the product in general. I need this product though at the moment, so it is now installed.


Review from a similar Invis-A-Rack in Ladder Racks

Very pleased. Exactly what we expected. Only issue is the driver side back plate that is glued on came off and is gone.


Review from a similar Invis-A-Rack in Ladder Racks

Great product. I use it to haul kayaks and lumber. It's surprisingly strong and sturdy. I put 300 lbs of lumber on it and never heard so much as a squeak. Installation was straightforward. I'll definitely buy another one for my next truck.


Review from a similar Invis-A-Rack in Ladder Racks

I love that I don’t have to find a place in my garage to store this rack, and remove and replace it with each use. It’s fairly easy to load and tie down my canoe single-handed. The loaded rack is quiet and feels secure at highway speeds and on rough roads. Set up and take-down is quick and easy, and the bed-rail look is unobtrusive. The product has met my expectations in every way. Thanks.


Review from a similar Invis-A-Rack in Ladder Racks

So far, so good. It arrived on time. The only things broken were two of the plastic "insert" pieces that go between the rails, but thankfully I only have a 5 1/2' bed, so I didn't really need them. I had it installed by the mechanics I was taking my truck to for other work and they said it installed pretty easily and one of the mechanics is going to get one for his own personal truck. We practiced setting it up and taking it down before I left. I can definitely do this on my own. I absolutely LOVE this product. I didn't want something that "whistled in the wind" or created drag every day even when I wasn't hauling the kayaks, so this is perfect. Thank you!


Review from a similar Invis-A-Rack in Ladder Racks

This Rack is Awesome, loaded a bunch of 16'x7" board's from the lumber yard. And it didn't squeak, Rattle or flex around one bit. As if they were not even up there. Very pleased with it!

  • How Long are the Crossbars on DeeZee Invis-A-Rack Ladder Rack for a 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500
    I spoke with my contact at DeeZee about the Invis-A-Rack # DZ951800. She stated that the maximum length of the crossbars on the rack is 69 inches so that is more than enough room for your 51 inch wide Jon boat. I have linked a video featuring this ladder rack for you.

  • Compatibility of DeeZee Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack DZ951800 with Tonneau Cover
    The DeeZee Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack # DZ951800 mounts on top of your Silverado's bed rails so if you installed it using screws, rather than the included clamps, it would be compatible with a tonneau cover that uses mounting hardware that sits inside the rails. My contact at DeeZee said this method would probably work so long as your hardware had a low enough profile so as to not interfere with the folding of the rack arms. They have not tested this installation process, however,...

  • Does DeeZee Invis-A-Rack Ladder Rack Fit 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD
    Yes, as long as your 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD has a 6-1/2 foot bed the DeeZee Invis-A-Rack Ladder Rack part # DZ951600 is a fit and will work well. If instead you have an 8 foot bed you'd want the # DZ951800 instead as this is the long bed version of the same ladder rack.

  • Fit of DeeZee Invis-A-Rack on 2014 Toyota Tundra with OEM Bed Rail System
    We do have a ladder carrying solution for your truck, although the Invis-A-rack wouldn't work. According to DeeZee, the Invis-A-Rack is not compatible with the Toyota Tundra models equipped with the bed track system. The Invis-A-Rack mounts to the top of the bed rail, but the clamps that attach it to the vehicle need to pass through to the underside of the bed rail. The presence of the bed rail system prevents access to the underside of the bed rail, leaving the clamps no way to attach. TracRac...

    The Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack part # DZ951800 for 8' beds or part # DZ951600 for 6.5' beds without the RamBox will be the perfect solution. This allows you to pull in your quad then raise the rear crossbar to load up you kayaks on to. I have linked a video for you to check it out.

  • Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2016 Ford F-250 Short Bed with Tonneau Cover
    Since you have a tonneau cover on your 2016 Ford F-250 the best we can do is a sliding ladder rack since none of the folding ones will fit. Reason being the folding ones all clamp around the inside of the bed rail where your tonneau resides. Only option we have is the TracRac Sliding Rack part # TH43003XT-510.

  • Roof Rack To Install On Hard Shell Tonneau Cover
    If you are looking for a rack system to install on top of a hard shell tonneau cover then I do have an option for you in the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Roof Rack for Camper Shells part # Y02-480B. This system has tracks so you can adjust the crossbar spread to any given load and the aero shaped crossbars will accept pretty much any roof mounted accessory. Unfortunately, there is not enough support to mount the Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack part # DZ951800 on a hard shell tonneau cover.

  • Color of Crossbars on Rola 59799 Haul-Your-Might
    It's hard to see in the photos, but the crossbars provided by the Rola # 59799 Haul-Your-Might ladder racks are what I'd call a dark gray or gunmetal color with a black rubber strip running down the center. The remainder of the ladder rack is black in color. Rola doesn't offer a ladder rack with crossbars that are entirely black, but we do offer some alternatives that are available in all black: • Buyers Products Ladder Rack with Load Stops, part # 3371501680.

    The Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack - Black Powder Coated Aluminum - 500lbs # DZ951800 is designed to clamp to the inner lip of the bedrails of your 2022 Ram 3500 so it would not be compatible with the tonneau covers you refenced.

  • Is Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack Compatible with BAK Roll-X Tonneau Cover on 2010 Toyota Tundra
    The Invis-A-Rack Folding Ladder Rack # DZ951800 uses clamps for installation on your truck side rails which will interfere with basically any tonneau cover out there (I have yet to hear of one that installs without using the side rails), including the BAK Roll-X. While we do have ladder rack solutions that do not use the clamp system, this is a very common style of mounting used for ladder racks and the #1 reason why most ladder racks aren't compatible with most tonneau covers.
