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 bought these for my 2018 Ford F 150 5.5foot bed. These are definitely one of the more expensive ladder racks you can buy but totally worth it. Very high quality and easy to install. I bought these for the ease of removal. I use etrailer.com for all my vehicle needs.

Still holding up well. Have since added the toolbox slider kit

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.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

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

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

Very heavy duty ladder rack that does not "whistle" while you drive down the road. Easy install overall, and it is very easy to install and remove the racks as needed after the original install. At the time of purchase this was not available for my vehicle with a short 5.5' bed, but with very minor fabrication the rails for longer beds fit perfectly. I have recommended this rack to several people since purchased a year ago.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

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.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

Full disclosure: I haven't ACTUALLY installed the rack yet (although I've purchased one here before and it is FANTASTIC - hence my reordering another), but etrailer customer service alone deserves 5 stars! When I opened the initial package, it was clear that something wasn't right. I soon discovered that two small parts ($50 worth) integral to the installation of the rack were missing. I contacted etrailer and let them know and they sent replacement parts out to me right away no questions asked. They were incredible to work with yet again - another reason I will never look anywhere else for any truck/trailer parts I may need in the fuutre.

Couldn't be happier with the Rack, it went together and operates flawlessly. Dealing with e trailer was a snap, I was informed all the way through the buying process of shipping and arrival dates. Will absolutely buy shop again with e trailer.

Im as happy today as I was the first day that I had the Rack. Its agreat product!!

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

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.

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.

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.

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.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

I like the rack and have owned 4 of them. My biggest complaint is that the finish comes off because they appear to be using a lower quality aluminum that the old style. My original one 15 years ago never did that.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

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. Installation was straight forward with no major issues doing it solo. A black anodized finish option to match the rails would be a nice feature to have available.

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.

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.

Im still happy with the TracRac. Its very handy, and no rust! Unlike the one I replaced it with.

    The best tonneau cover and ladder rack combination for a 2017 Ford F-150 is the TracRac SR # TH43002XT-501 with the BAK Revolver X2 # BAK39327. Most tonneau covers will either install in the same place a ladder rack or make contact with the rack while trying to open the cover. The Revolver X2 installs inside the bed rails of the truck and the SR installs in the stake pockets. The X2 is also sits a little further inside the bed rails than other covers, which keeps it from making contact...

    Thank you for the photo of your Ram's hard tonneau cover on which you wish to transport a kayak and/or stand-up-paddleboard (SUP). You have several ways to go here.

  • Best Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Combination for 2018 Ford F-150 with 6-1/2 Foot Bed
    You have read correctly. The best tonneau cover and ladder rack combo for your 2018 Ford F-150 consists of the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-501 and the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK39327. With almost every other combination on the market between different covers and racks, there is either interference due to both systems needing the same space on the truck for their mounting hardware or because the cover makes contact with the rack's hardware...

  • Recommended Ladder Rack Compatible With Truxedo Tonneau Cover on 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 6.5 Bed
    With your Truxedo Tonneau cover, if the tonneau covers the stake pockets then there won't be a fit. However if the stake pockets are not covered, you can use a ladder rack like the Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack # A4001223 or the Steel frame and aluminum crossbar # A90210. Both of these have a 500 lb capacity. This won't work well with a folding cover due to the supports angling in but will work well if you have a roll up A better option if you have a hinged...

  • Can Roof Rack Accessories Attach to TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars
    The crossbars of the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-501 have to be much thicker than Thule and Yakima crossbars because of the difference in weight capacities. The Yakima and Thule racks have weight capacities around 165 lbs typically and this rack has a 1,250 lb capacity. Because of the difference in the size of the bars the accessories that fit by attaching around the bars aren't compatible. This rack does have a track on the top so some accessories that use a...

  • Recommended Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover For 2018 Ford F-150 Crewmax with 5.5 Foot Bed
    Unfortunately with your Ford Tri-fold tonneau, there is not a ladder rack that can be used at the same time because the tonneau rests on top of the side rails. If you don't need to use them at the same time, then you can use any rack from the attached link but it will require removing the tonneau completely to install the ladder rack for each use. If you want to use the tonneau and the ladder rack and the same time, then you can use the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack...

  • Recommended Ladder Rack Compatibility with BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover on 2013 Chevy 2500 Short Bed
    For your 2013 Chevy Silverado 2500 short bed with your G2 Tonneau cover, I recommend the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-501. Because the rails on your BAKFlip G2 tonneau cover are inside the bed rails, this ladder rack that utilizes the stake pockets of your bed rails will work. The only thing to note is the weather strip on the side of your tonneau may come in contact with the rail of the ladder rack when folding. We haven't heard of issues, but believe the contact...

    A tonneau cover and a ladder rack can be compatible with each other on a truck such as your 2016 Ford F-150 short bed as long as they do not require the same mounting point for installation.
