Crossbar Specs

Notes: This rack cannot be used with tonneau covers. If the truck has an over-the-rail liner or OEM sliding tie-down anchor tracks, modifications will need to be made.

This truck bed ladder rack offers 400 lbs of raised, cargo-hauling capacity. This workhorse ladder rack hauls ladders, lumber, pipe, and rebar, freeing up your truck bed for other equipment.

The aerodynamic design of the crossbars creates less wind drag and helps to promote fuel efficiency. The included load stops can be loosened and changed to the desired position by sliding them along a channel. Then simply retighten them to lock them into position.

Sturdy, Rustproof Construction

The MaxxTow rack system is constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum with a powder coat finish.

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.

Simple, Clamp-On Installation

This ladder rack installs quickly and easily on your truck bed side rails. Simply position the bases of the rack where indicated in the included instructions and secure them with the provided clamps. The clamps are padded to protect your truck's side rails from scratches and scuffs.

Video Transcript for MaxxTow Truck Bed Ladder Rack Review

Today, we'll be taking a look at the Maxxtow truck bed ladder rack, part number MT70423. This sturdy, lightweight, aluminum ladder rack lets you easily carry elongated items such as ladders, lumber, or any other equipment and supplies up over the bed of your pickup. It's going to help free up space in your bed for more gear. The adjustable load stops lets you easily secure loads of varying sizes. The aerodynamic crossbar design reduces drag and wind noise. It has a durable, rust-proof, powder-coat finish, so it's going to stand up to the elements. It's a quick and easy clamp-on installation with no drilling required.

We'll go ahead and show you that now. Both halves install the same. As you can see, I've already got the front one installed on the truck right now. Let's go ahead and set this one in place. The only difference is is that mounts are going to face inward opposite the front ones.

The rack is adjustable for multiple truck bed sizes. I've already used my included tool to adjust it to fit for this truck. When putting your brackets in place, you want to make sure that there's no interference underneath the rail here. If you have a bed liner, you may need to notch 00:01:07 it out. The brackets are going to come like this with a bolt already on. You've got a lock washer and just a regular washer.

We'll go ahead and take that bolt out. You've got a padded end here and a flat end. The padded end is going to go up underneath the rail. We can go ahead and put that in position. Just slide it up underneath. You can use whatever hole you want.

You just want to use whatever works best for your application. I'm going to use my center hole here. Put my bolt through the top and hand tighten it down. I'll put my other one in position as well. Once again, you just want to make sure that the pad goes up underneath the rail of the truck. Now I can grab my 5/8" socket and tighten it down. The other side installs the exact same way, so we can just repeat that same step. Now, with it installed, let's go ahead and load up a ladder. Now we can go ahead and center it up if you'd like. Then we'll bring our adjustable load stops in, turn that clockwise to tighten them up. Now we can go ahead and secure it with our favorite strap. Now, straps aren't included, so you will need to provide your own. We've got plenty here at etrailer.com, so go ahead and pick some up. Now, with it all secure, let's go ahead and take it on our test course and see how it performed. Here, on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side to side action, such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then, onto our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then, finally, onto our slalom speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the Maxxtow truck bed ladder rack, part number MT70423.

Great product but why don't us have parts for this. The load stops fall off and you don't have replacements. What a joke either make them that they don't come off or supply the parts. 501940

We cannot obtain replacement load stops from MaxxTow, but the Rola # 59794
Load Stops for Rola Haul-Your-Might Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - Qty 4
load stops sold in a quantity of 4 would be compatible.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

This is a rack I would like to give 5 stars because it is sturdy and I like the mounts. But, it says the crossbar is 70 inches but the bottom posts only stretch to 67 inches. So if you have a full size truck like my 2001 Dodge 2500 you will have to modify this rack. So after an hour of grinding cutting and drilling so the upright posts would stretch to the edges on the top posts I got it to fit. If the top posts were 73 inches wide the bottom could go to 70 inches. Kind of miss leading but a good product other than that. etrailer also had the best price and always good customer service. 399414

The MaxxTow MT70423 truck bed ladder rack is exactly what I needed to carry my 2 kayaks while pulling my Casita trailer. It has worked perfectly with no negative issues. I did use J&B Weld to glue the end caps to prevent them from coming off and causing noise, as some reviews warned. I am extremely satisfied with the workmanship, and especially the price. Comparable racks available cost much more. 443764

Received the product in good condition and on time without any missing parts. I glued in the end caps as suggested by another customer and there is no noise at 60+ mph. I'll replace the mounting bolts w/ tamper proof ones as was suggested by others. I had no problem installing it on my 1995 Silverado and have used it to carry my 18'-6" canoe. This is a rugged unit at a great price and I like the fact that I can quickly remove/install it on my truck. 643415

The rack looks good on my truck and is good quality but one of the cross rails has a slight bow that I notice every time I look at it (3/16"). Assembly was difficult only because the screws supplied are an 1/8 inch too short, with washer and lock washer they barely reac0h the nut inside the track rail. 472781

Installed rack in bed of 2014 F150 5.5 foot bed. Took about 1.5 - 2 hours to install. Rack seems very sturdy/strong if you tighten every bolt well. Allen/hex wrench provided lost its edge mid way through installation and was useless, luckily I had a good quality Allen/hex wrench to finish the job. I would recommend this rack. 215767

The rack looks nice but time will tell. The instructions that came with rack is horrible. This is not a heavy duty steel lumber rack but it should work to carry some kayaks. 404195

After 1 year of use its still holding up great. I use it mainly to carry kayak and small Jon boat on my f250.

I buy lumber once every month or two and this rack works well for my purposes since it's easy for one person to take on and off. When I need the full bed or when I use my tonneau cover, I use a power impact driver to take the bolts off in seconds and each of the two racks are pretty light so they're easy to handle. If I need to haul my dirtbike, I only need to take off the rear rack, so half the work. I can carry 12-ft boards no problem on the highway and the forklift at the lumber yard can easily load the boards right onto the rack for quick and easy loading. I live in Santa Cruz where there's a lot of theft crimes and park my truck outside, so for peace of mind I replaced all the hex bolts with M10 x 40mm "tamper proof" torx bolts that I got on eBay (see photo). 398593

Very happy with this sturdy rack to carry my kayaks while towing a travel trailer. A small park was missing when received, but the folks at etrailer handled the problem and shipped the missing part. Have bought several times from etrailer and will continue to use them. 267789

The unit was ALMOST a very good product. The 90 degree crossbar supports weren't manufactured at 90 degrees, thus causing me to use washers as shims to attain the appropriate 90 degree attach point. Also, the material stops on the crossbar are thin-walled aluminum square stock. When tightening them by hand, they twisted. I hope the heavy duty system material supports I've asked for are a better quality. Customer support has been OUTSTANDING! 397691

This rack is exactly as described. I chose this one for price and have not compared it to other brands that start at $100 more than this one, I would assume that they are better and lighter, but the cheaper one suites my needs. It's a little heavy, 60lbs, but it's really sturdy mounted to the truck and everything aligned perfectly with my 2016 Colorado. There were no installation instructions, but it was pretty easy to assemble and install. It took about 90 minutes. The only complaints I have is that it whistles at speeds above 40mph. I'm assuming that's because there is no rubber inserts for the T conduit on the top and bottom of the rails. MaxxTow does not have a website, and when I called the number provided by etrailer, it went straight to VM and no one has called me back. 3 stars due to the lack of MaxxTow customer service, not the actual product. I purchased a set of Rola Load Stops #59794 and they did not fit in the T Channel on this rack. etrailer was great about returning them and I have ordered some different tie down loops #59795 that I hope will fit. For the record, etrailer support was and has always been fantastic. Would I buy it again? Based on the cost and my typical use / needs, Yes. If I was going to leave in the truck permanently, probably not. I'd likely spend a little more. 506391

I purchased these "easy to install ladder racks" about a year ago for the purpose of hauling long tent poles. I am an auctioneer and we occasionally need to set up tents on the location of the auction. I did not want racks on my truck permanently. I wanted some that could be installed quickly when needed. After much research I purchased this set. The racks arrived quickly. I read the instructions before installing. The first time it took about 15 minutes to install and about 5 minutes to remove. The second time it took less time to install. They are heavy duty and look very nice on the truck. I am very pleased with the quality and the all around experience with the purchase. I would recommend etrailer.com and this particular product. 801167

I bought these to carry my kayaks when we go camping. They wok great. I can install them in about 30 minutes and I’m ready to load the kayaks. When we get back from our camping trip I can remove them and put my bed cover back on until next trip. 686938

It has been great for my purpose. I use it to carry two 10 ft kayaks. When I am pulling a travel trailer, it works as well. I think I can carry another kayak, but have not tried yet. 682562
