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.

Video Transcript for Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack Base Rails Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the base rails for the TracRac sliding truck bed ladder racks. These TracRac base rails are going to provide a sliding, fully adjustable solution for your TracRac, SR, or G2 ladder racks. There's a base rail kit that will be custom fit for your vehicle in both short bed and long bed applications.These rails are going to run the full length of your bed and have two separate sliding rails for maximum adjustability. Now if you jump inside the bed, you can loosen up your rails. They slide easily back and forth with just one person. As you can see here, you can adjust for shorter sized loads up on top.

With these sliding rails, we we're able to push our ladder rack all the way back easily, put on our 12 foot ladder, and now we're ready to go.What's great about being able to slide these rails all the way forward in their fully closed position, you can now put something very tall in the back of your truck without having to disassemble your rails to get it in there. These rails are going to be great for people who want to get the most out of their truck, so that way you can have the ultimate adjustability up top as well as below in your bed.This kit is going to have everything you need to install it, and it's going to be a no drill solution. It's going to go right down into your stake holes and hold it in place. To slide your ladder rack on, you simply need to remove your end screws and lift your ladder rack up into place. Align the feet with the rails and slide it forward.Now if you slid your ladder rack onto the rails, make sure you put your safety bolts back into place.

This will prevent your ladder rack from sliding off the back of your truck. The rails are constructed of an anodized aluminum that's going to be rust and corrosion resistant and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. When compared to other base rails, this system has two separate rails, which allows for more adjustability. As you can see here, we we're able to collapse these rails even closer together by offsetting them on the inside and outside rail.That completes our look at the base rails for the TracRac sliding truck bed ladder racks.

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

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


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

Shipping was quick As described Easy to assemble. Wish the kit had one set of directions so I wouldn't have had to take the front rack apart after the fact. The final bolts for the canteleaver seem to be a damage/ scratch hazard. Looks pretty slick though. 704535

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


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

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

The only sliding rack that works on my GMC Canyon, and as good (if not better) than the original TrackRac I purchased over ten years ago (and still in use) for my Tundra. Wish the TrackRac sliding rack/tonneau combination were still available; it was the PERFECT combo! 660641

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

This Thule rack is one of only a few that fit the Tundra and it has worked out great for my needs, especially with the front extension piece.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks


I bought this TracRac SR for a 2019 new gen GMC 1500 AT4 with a Lomax/WeatherTech tri-fold hard bed cover thinking I would still be able to open and close cover. I could not. The base rails overlapped the inside bed rail just enough to prevent opening the cover. The base rail itself measure 4" wide. When trying to size it up on truck I did notice that when mounted it looks like the rear base rail is larger than the truck bed rails and hangover the outside of the rails. Some people may or may not liked the fact that it does not follow the contour of the truck bed. I only opened the base rail box so can not comment on cross bars. The base rails were well made and very heavy duty. etrailor customer service is one of the best I have ever dealt with! They do a amazing job, the entire process of ordering to return was incredibly easy and they have a great knowledge of the products they sell. 749154

  • Hard Tonneau Cover that Fits with TracRac Ladder Rack on 2016 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed
    You will want a cover that mounts between the bed rails so that the stake pockets are available for the install of a TracRac Ladder # TH43002XT-508. For that you will want a cover like the BAKFlip F1 part # BAK72329 or any of the other hard covers that are at the attached link.

I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions that shows how the rails attach to the stacke pockets for you to check out.

  • How to Determine if TracRac SR Ladder Rack Will Fit 2019 Ford F-150 With 56 Bed and Tonneau Cover
    Based on my research there seem to be numerous tonneau covers from Ford that fit a 2019 Ford F-150 with a 5'6" bed and there is no way for us to know exactly what you have or what tonneau covers those are because our products are entirely aftermarket. That means although I can't guarantee any type of fit, I can tell you what you need to know in order to determine if the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508 will fit your '19 F-150 you need to take a look at how...

  • Will the Thule TracRac SR Work with the BAKFlip MX4 on a 2018 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    I do have some options for you but the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-508 and the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK48329 are not a good fit. The rails on the SR are rather wide so they would likely overlap with the seals on the MX4. In addition to this, you would need to move the rear rack forward in order to fold the cover up each time and with continuous use the seals on the cover will wear out. The only tonneau cover that we know for sure works...

  • Does TracRac SR for 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor Fit the Two Stake Pocket Design of the Truck
    The ladder rack does fit your truck. The base rails of the TracRac SR ladder rack kit part # TH43002XT-508 are designed to only attach in two places which matches your bed design. The front stake pocket and the rear stake pocket. I attached a picture of them and you and you can see the two holes on either end. If you don't see the front stake pocket it is most likely covered by a bed rail/stake pocket cover.

  • Hard Tonneau Cover Compatible with TracRac # TH43002XT-508 SR Sliding Ladder Rack for 2015 Ford F150
    BAK Industries does indeed have a hard Tonneau cover that will work with the # TH43002XT-508 TracRac SR Sliding Truck Ladder Rack. The BAK BAKFlip F1 Tonneau Cover you mentioned, part # BAK72329 will overlap the tops of the bed sides by 1/2-3/4 of an inch on each side. Installing the ladder rack would interfere with the operation of the Tonneau. However, BAK offers the Revolver Roll Up, part # BAK39329 which mounts completely to the inside of the bed rails, and will NOT interfere with...

  • Do the Stake Pockets Need To Be Cut Out On a 2019 Ford F-150 In Order To Install the TracRac SR
    In order to use the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-508 if you have the 5-1/2' bed, part # TH43002XT-501 if you have the 6-1/2' bed, or part # TH43003XT-000 if you have the 8' bed on your 2019 Ford F-150 you will have no other option but to cut out the other two stake pocket openings. This is actually really easy to do and well worth the benefits of the TracRac SR. I know it can be difficult to modify a brand new truck but it's just plastic after all. If...

  • Low Profile Rack and Tonneau Cover For a 2015 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Short Bed Truck
    I have a solution for you, but unfortunately equipping a tonneau cover restricts your options when you want to add bars to your truck bed. These tend to cover or interact with the stake pockets, which the bed bars tend to use, and limit the available space for these bars to operate in the way you want them to. Additionally, these systems tend to not be compatible with racks when equipped with roll up or retractable covers. Instead, I recommend a traditional ladder rack system. One of...

  • Is there a Ladder Rack that Works with BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover on 2014 Ford F-150 Supercrew
    the BAK ladder rack was designed to work specifically with the BAKFlip CS or BAKFlip CS-F1 but no other models. Your best option is TracRac sliding ladder rack # TH43002XT-508 which mounts to the tops of the bed sides using the stake pocket holes. But even with this ladder rack there is the potential for the rack and Tonneau cover to interfere with each other.

  • Can Elongated Clamps be Used On a Ladder Rack with a Tonneau Cover 2014 Ford F-150
    I do have tonneau cover and ladder rack options available for your 2014 Ford F-150 but you will not be able to use a set of elongated clamps to attach a ladder rack that mounts inside the bed rails over the base rails on a tonneau cover that mounts inside the bed rails. The clamps would have to extend both over and past the base rails for the tonneau cover and to my knowledge, such clamps do not exist. The only combination of tonneau cover and ladder rack we have confirmed to work with...

  • Which Upright Goes In Front of Other for the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TA21508-02
    I checked the installation instructions for the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508 that you referenced and the rear upright will be the one that slides on the outside track and the front upright will be the one that installs on the inside track. This happens to be how you wanted to install the uprights so it should work out very well for you. The instructions also indicate that the legs of each of the uprights are designed to specifically be used on either the front...

  • Tonneau Cover for 2015 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 ft Bed with TracRac SR Ladder Rack
    The Ford tonneau you mentioned sits on top of the bed rails so there isn't a ladder rack that's going to fit with it. To use the TracRac SR # TH43002XT-508 you would need to use a similar cover that installs between the bedrails like the # TX597701.

  • Will the Thule Sliding Ladder Rack Work with a BAKFlip G2 Hard Folding Tonneau Cover
    The best option that I can offer you and still allow access to your tonneau cover is to use a truck mounted roof rack system and use an additional vertical support that mounts in your truck hitch. To accomplish this you would need a roof rack system and I would suggest the Rhino-Rack system for your 2009 Ford F-150. This system is comprised of the # DK150H which are the mounting clips that will fit your truck.Then you will need the # RRRLKVAH, which is a single Vortex Aero Style Crossbar....

  • Availability of TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack for a 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot Bed
    We do have the TracRac SR that will fit your 2014 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed, for that you will want part # TH43002XT-508. You can add the over-the-cab extension later with part # TH24002XT. As for the fold up tonneau cover that you have already installed on your F-150, it really depends on the style. If it is a soft tonneau cover that mounts inside the bed rails then it will most likely fit, but if it is one of the hard fold up covers then the rails on the TracRac SR overhang...

  • Will the TracRac SR Work with a Lo Pro QT on a 2015 Ford F-150
    The TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-508 is an excellent truck bed ladder rack that will work well with your 2015 Ford F-150. As the TracRac SR mounts to the top of the bed rails and the TruXedo Lo Pro QT Soft Roll-up Tonneau Cover part # TX597701 mounts to the inside of the bed rails, I would have to say that the odds of the two working together are high. Unfortunately we have not had the chance to test fit the two together but I believe it will work for you.

  • Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2012 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft Bed
    There's only one tonneau cover we can recommend that works great with the Thule TracRac Sliding Ladder racks like the part # TH43002XT-508 which fits your 2012 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed. For that you need the Bak Revolver part # BAK79309. This is the only tonneau that install far enough between the bed rails that the base rails and uprights of the TracRac can work without interference.

  • Which Thule Sliding Ladder Rack Fits 2018 Ford F-150 5.5 ft Bed
    I wish I could say that the smaller rack configuration you mentioned would work, but Thule only has fit info for the # TH43002XT-508 for your 2018 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed. If you tried to install the compact truck uprights it most likely would not have wide enough bars to fit properly amount other things. The part # TH43002XT-508 will sit 27-5/16 inches above the bed rails which you can compare to see if you'd fit in your garage or not with them.

  • Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford F-150 with BakFlip Tonneau Cover Installed
    We have ladder racks that are compatible with the BakFlip Revolver X4 tonneau cover you have on your 2017 Ford F-150 short bed. If you have a 6-1/2 foot bed you'd want the part # TH43002XT-501. If you had the 5-1/2 foot bed you'd instead want the # TH43002XT-508 and you'd be set. These fit because they install through the top of the stake pockets on your bed rails unlike most that wrap around where your tonneau rail is.

    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...
