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.


Cantilever Over-the-Cab Extension


TracRac Cantilever Over-the-Cab Extension

Included with your TracRac system is the cantilever extension, which attaches to the front crossbar to provide 32" of additional length over the cab of your vehicle. With this extension piece mounted you can carry long loads safely and easily. The crossbar of the cantilever extension is constructed in the same fashion as the other TracRac crossbars so that you get the same sturdy, aerodynamic styling throughout.


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.

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

Review from a similar Thule SR in Ladder Racks


This is essentially the same rack TracRac has been making for years ā€“ 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 ā€“ 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

Rack was easy to install, I use it daily and it's definitely built for it. I got a new truck and had to switch the bed rails out, ordered just the rails and changed it over in an hour. Great rack! 409298

Review from a similar Thule 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 Thule 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

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

  • Tonneau Cover for 2017 Ford F-250 Super Duty with TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack
  • Since your TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack model # TH43003XT-000EX uses bed-rail-mounted tracks you can use a hard tonneau cover that installs inside the bed rails. This avoids any interference between the mounting requirements for these two aftermarket products. On the linked page you can view all hard tonneau covers that mount inside the rails. The best choice for use along with the SR rack is the BAK Revolver X2 cover # BAK39331 which is shown in the linked video. This cover is USA-made,...

  • Compatible Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover for 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty Long-Bed
  • Often tonneau covers and ladder racks interfere with each other when they require common mounting points on the truck bed rails. But there is a compatible combination that we know from experience will work well on your long-bed F-350. BAK Revolver Series tonneau covers # BAK79331 and # BAK39331 mount inside the bed rails which allows use of the TracRac SR sliding ladder rack which mount on top of the bed rails. Several versions of the SR are shown on the linked page. For your long-bed...

  • Carrying 2 Kayaks on 2017 Ford F-250 Platinum with Panoramic Roof
  • For your 2017 Ford F-250 platinum, the panoramic glass makes a roof rack or even single crossbar incompatible. For your 2 kayaks, I recommend using a ladder rack system like the Yakima Outdoorsman 300 Ladder Rack with 78" CrossBars for Full Size Trucks # Y01137-Y00411. If you really want something that extends over the cab, you can use the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Over-the-Cab Extension - 1,250 lbs # TH43003XT-000EX.

  • Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2017 F250 Long Bed With Easily Removable Rear Bar
  • I have a great ladder rack solution for your 2017 Ford F-250 long bed that will allow you to easily remove the rear bar when you want to load or unload the motorcycle. For that you'd want the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack with extension # TH43003XT-000EX for if you want an over cab extension or part # TH43003XT-000 for just the two standard uprights. The rear bar of the TracRac # TH91000 is not easily removable so it would not be your ideal solution.

  • You would not be able to install a tonneau cover if TracRac ladder rack # TH91000 is installed because its brackets fit around on the inside of the bed sides and would interfere with a tonneau cover. You would need a ladder rack that mounts in the stake pockets on the tops of the bed sides such as # TH43003XT-501EX for a short bed 2012 Ram 1500 or # TH43003XT-000EX for a long bed model.

The only way to install that style of rack on your vehicle would be to replace what you have with the # TH43003XT-000EX if you have an 8 foot bed, part # TH43002XT-508EX if you have a 5-1/2 foot bed.

If you have the 8 foot bed, you will want the # TH43003XT-000. If you want the over-the-cab extension with the rack, then you will want the # TH43003XT-000EX or the # TH43003XT-501EX.
