Video Transcript for Thule Ladder Racks Review - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on this 2016 Ford F150 we're going to be test fitting the Thule Xsporter Pro adjustable height truck bed ladder rack, part number TH500XT. This rack does have a weight capacity of 450 pounds. It can carry anything from lumber, to ladders, to conduit pipe, whatever you may need for the job site as well as water sport carriers. You can tie them down using these adjustable tie downs by loosening up these knobs. You can slide them up and down to the t track to wherever you may need. This is constructed from a nice solid aluminum and it also has a nice aerodynamic shape on the bars to ensure there's going to be less wind noise and drag while you drive. It does fit varying truck bed widths by loosening up two allen head bolts on each leg and making your adjustments. It also is adjusted by height with these quick dial knobs, which you can see these large black knobs on each foot.

You loosen those up on both sides and you can lower it to wherever you may need. You can go by these numbers on the inside, which tell you what height you're at. How it attaches to the truck bed: you're going to have two clamps per foot, on each of them and you just tighten them down, also with allen head bolts. All of them are size 7/32. Let's go ahead and show you how the last two go on here. I'm going to go ahead and open up the tailgate so you can see a little bit clearer.

This truck bed does actually come with a truck bed liner, however if your truck didn't have one, it does come with these pads that you can put underneath the feet to ensure that it doesn't scratch or mar up your truck bed rails while you install it. How the clamps work: You're going to be using the c clamps, I'm going to loosen this up a little bit more. This bracket goes on top of the screw. I'm going to lift up and under. I'm going to hand tighten it at first, get it loosely tightened, and then we'll come back with our ratchet to finish it up. That's good.

Same with the last one. You notice that this one looks a little bit different with the clamp, with this little metal piece, that is actually going to fit a lock around it, so this will lock to your bed. We have one installed up here. Going to take our ratchet with our 7/32 allen bit and go ahead and tighten it down. I guess it was a little bit looser than I thought it was.

We'll do that with the last one as well. We'll install our lock. Turn the key, it's locked up and you're ready to go. There you have it for the Thule Xsporter Pro ladder rack, part number TH500XT on our 2016 Ford F150. .

This is a fantastic product! Looks great, adjust easily. With the toolbox and ladder racks down it really gives the truck a unique look. Less than 5 minutes they can be adjusted up to carry whatever is needed. I attach my hullavator kayak cradle to it in another couple of minutes and am ready to easily load kayak. I couldn’t be more satisfied. 601832

Love these because of the adjustability. I can carry my tent lower than the roofline, or use to carry my canoe above it. The adjustable stops make it easy to change depending on whatever load you're running, ladders, plywood, a boat, etc! The black powder coat happens to match my truck perfectly. 463004

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


The Thule rack has met all of my expectations quality, ease of installation, and versatility. My install is on a utility trailer used for various tasks. Removing and replacing the rack takes about 15 minutes, highly recommend this product. 420392

Review from a similar Thule Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


More expensive than other racks but I was impressed with the quality of the components, the directions and even the packaging. I wanted racks that I could adjust as low as possible to ease the loading of kayaks and just clear the cab. These adjust to just about any height you'd want in 3/4 inch increments. My only doubt is whether the C clamps that secure the bases to the bed rails might loosen over time. 465973


Comments

With a years use now on the racks, Ive been pleased with them. The C clamps have needed to be tightened once, maybe twice but I have used the racks many times and sometimes on some fairly rough roads.

I'm an insurance adjuster with a 2017 Toyota Tacoma and this product is versatile and saves time when needing to disassemble. The Thule ladder rack was easy and simple to assemble, can be done in 304-45 minutes. I carry anywhere from 3 extension ladders and sometimes materials with plenty of room.. It can also carry up to 4 kayaks depending on how they are stacked.. I would recommend this for anyone that needs easy quick dissembling with with no racks sometimes 566462

Do you have a question about this Ladder Rack?


  • Ladder Racks for 2018 Toyota Tundra with Deck Rail System
  • We can help you with a ladder rack for your 2018 Tundra that has the deck rail system no matter which bed length it has. We have racks to fit the 5-1/2-foot, 6-1/2-foot and the 8-foot long bed models. If you have the 5-1/2-foot bed I suggest the Rola Haul-Your-Might T3 Truck Bed Ladder Rack # 59799. This rack mounts directly in your deck rail system and it offers an 800-lb weight capacity. This option is a great value. But if you have the 6-1/2-foot or 8-foot bed then you can use...

  • Which Ladder Racks Will Work With The BAK Revolver X2 On A 2018 Ford F-150 Short Bed
  • I do have an adjustable truck bed ladder rack for you in the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XTB but unfortunately as this will clamp onto the inside of the bed rails it will not work with any tonneau cover which includes the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK39329. However, I do still have other ladder racks that will work with the Revolver X2 and I have attached those for you below. Adarac Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack - part # A70490 Adarac Aluminum...

  • Will the Toolbox Mount Kit Part # TH41000 Work with a T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • Yes, the Toolbox Mount Kit for Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Racks part # TH41000 will work with a T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH37002XT-EX which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. I spoke to my contact at Thule to confirm this. However, if you are purchasing the T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack new then you will not need the toolbox mounting kit as it is included with the rack.

  • Will the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier Fit the Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
  • In order to attach the Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier part # TH834 to the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT you will need the Watersports Adapter for Aeroblade/Aeroblade Edge Bars part # THXADAPT11. The Xsporter's crossbars are too large for the Hull-A-Port to wrap around which is why you need to use the Watersports Adapter because this converts the Hull-A-Port to mount using the track system.

  • Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack Recommendation for a 2001 Toyota Tacoma
  • The Thule Xsporter # TH500XTB that you referenced unfortunately is not compatible with tonneau covers because it clamps along the inside of the bed rails which prohibits a tonneau cover from fitting. We do have the Pace Edwards Full-Metal JackRabbit # 311-JET0613 which fits your 2001 Toyota Tacoma if it has a 6' bed without the Stepside feature, but it is only compatible with racks that install on top of the truck bed rails. The ladder rack that fit with this is the Pace Edwards Contractor...

  • Will CargoBuckle Retractable Ratchet Straps Work With Thule Xsporter on 2016 Chevy Colorado?
  • I spoke with a representative of Thule who said that the CargoBuckle Retractable Ratchet Straps IMF104933 are compatible with the Thule Xsporter for your 2016 Chevy Colorado. The Xsporter is a fit for your truck and comes in either silver # TH500XT or black # TH500XTB. It is a height-adjustable rack that uses QuickDial knobs to raise or lower the bars and has a carrying capacity of 450 lbs. I've added links to video reviews of the CargoBuckle and Xsporter for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of the Thule Xsporter Pro for a 2016 Toyota Tundra
  • We do have the Thule Xsporter Pro available for your 2016 Toyota Tundra as long as it doesn't have the Deck Rail System. The Xsporter comes both in Silver # TH500XT and in Black # TH500XTB, and is compatible with any of the 5-1/2 foot, 6-1/2 foot, or 8 foot bed lengths that the Tundra comes with. I have attached a couple of review videos that you can check out as well.

  • Does Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack part # TH500XTB Fit 2000 Toyota Tacoma

  • Removing the Crossbars From the Thule XSporter Pro Ladder Rack
  • The Thule Xsporter, part # TH500XTB, can have its crossbars removed from the bases, leaving them installed and the bases clamped to the bedrails. I wouldn't recommend doing so, as you can also just remove the base's clamps and uninstall the entire unit in about the same amount of time as removing the bars.

  • Thule Cascade Cargo Box Compatibility with Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
  • The Xsporter Pro like # TH500XTB has load bars that measure 3-1/2 inches by 1-1/2 inches. The Thule Cascade cargo box will use mounts that are 3-1/4 inches wide so they will not fit the bars on the Xsportster Pro. You would need to create a custom mount to make them compatible with wider U-bolts. Then you can use # LT37467 to seal holes. This will work but will also be outside the warranty of either product.

  • Compatibility of Xsporter Ladder Rack with Over Cab Extension
  • The Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum # TH500XTB will not work with the over the cab extension. I confirmed this with my contact at Thule. For the over the cab support you would need the TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH27000XT-EX or the # TH27000XTB in matte black along with the Cantilever Extension for Thule Thule TracRac TracONE Ladder Racks # TH24001XT which only comes in silver.

  • Will Thule Xsporter Pro Cause Any Damage to Truck Bed Rails
  • So long as you follow the directions, the Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH500XTB will not result in any embossing. The Xsporter will clamp onto your side rails and so long as you tighten clamp bolts to 10 ft-lbs using the included 7/32" Allen Key you won't encounter any issues. I have added a link to a video showing this being installed so you can take a look at the process involved.

  • Will Three Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carriers fit Thule Xsporter on 2017 Chevy Colorado?
  • Three Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carriers # TH834 will absolutely fit onto the 72" long load bars of the Thule Xsporter # TH500XTB that fits both the 5' and 6' bed of your 2017 Chevy Colorado. Depending on how wide your kayaks are, you may have better luck getting three kayaks to fit by using the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830, which will take up less room on the XSporter. You would need Adapter # THXADAPT3 to mount The Stacker on the Xsporter and your kayaks could...

  • Can Aries Switchback Headache Rack for 2017 GMC Canyon Support Ladders
  • I have spoken with Aries before about weight ratings for headache racks and have been told that racks such as the Aries Switchback Headache Rack # AA1110109 that fit your 2017 GMC Canyon do not have specific weight ratings because they were not designed with the intention of supporting cargo like ladders. For carrying ladders the best option is a ladder rack, the Thule Xsporter Pro # TH500XTB which will fit either the 5 foot or 6 foot bed on your '17 GMC Canyon. The Xsporter Pro has...
