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.

2019 Ram 3500

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

- TH43003XT-501EX

Bought in end of november 2019. It's the beginning of August. Never would buy again. Replaced so many screws already. Adjusting the rack sucks and the screw downs to secure the rack to the rails will not tighten/lose to slide because they are completely corroded together. Hasn't even been a year....very disappointed.

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 for all my vehicle needs.

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

I did install the Thule TracRac SR. I did it on my own and it went well. I'm really pleased with it. As for the photo, I will send you one, once I've washed my truck. Can't make a photo with a dirty truck. I will leave feedback later after some time with the rack.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

The Good: This rack is sturdy and doesn't make a lot of noise. I also like that it's aluminum and I don't have to worry about rust making it look bad or compromising the structural integrity. The Bad: It doesn't slide very well. It takes two people and even then it is VERY sticky. It makes sense...aluminum doesn't like to slide well. But I think there is room for improvement for some sort of low friction glides in the rack that last long term. Also, where the ladders sit, the aluminum is getting chewed up a bit. The Ugly: Well...It's not ugly. It actually looks nice. :) Overall: We also added the cantilever after the fact and that really helps to stabilize longer ladders. While the rack does have a lot of options for tie-downs, they mostly seem to be geared toward ropes or super light duty ratchet straps. We use slightly heavier duty ratchets straps for everything we need them for (1 1/2") and it would be nice to have a better way to hook those up. Not a big deal, just something to improve on. All in all, this rack is expensive. Understandably so because it's aluminum, but that was a hard pill to swallow. The fact the rack is difficult to slide makes it even harder to swallow...I'm just glad we don't need to slide it that often.

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

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

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

Absolutely love the flexibility this rack system allows! Had to have it on my F350 and now had to have it on the F450. When the racks are not in use it is a major advantage in my opinion to be able to slide the racks to the cab and get them out of my way. I'm also able to leave in place to haul a 5th wheel trailer. Again the flexibility is outstanding, they look great, and easy to install with no assistance required.

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

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.

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.

- TH43002XT-000

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.

Review from a similar SR in Ladder Racks

Absolutely love it. Such an easy install, goes on and off in minutes, adaptable and adjustable, great weight capabilities and holds up the the elements well. It also takes seconds to slide the rear section up with the barrel adjusters to fit a motorcycle in the back. I've used it for ladders, construction materials, kayaks, and a place to hang my hammocks when my kids need a nap, ha. The retractable ratcheting straps (sold separately) are incredibly convenient. The only way this product could be made even better is if the vertical arms were height adjustable.

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.

As long as your Ram doesn't have the RamBox then you can use part # TH43003XT-784 for a 5-1/2' bed or part # TH43003XT-501 for a 6-1/2' bed. If you are wanting the over-the-cab extension then...

  • Ladder Rack Recommendation that Fits with Tonneau Cover for 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    The only tonneau cover we can recommend as a guaranteed fit with the Thule TracRac Ladder Racks like the part # TH43003XT-501EX you referenced is the BAK Revolver like the part # BAK48203 that you also referenced. The Extang you mentioned most likely will not open without interference from either the rail kit or the uprights of the rack. Both of these are a confirmed fit for your 2019 Ram 2500 short bed and would work great together!

  • Available Types of Ladder Rack for 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 with 6-Foot Bed
    The ladder racks confirmed to fit your 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 with 6-foot bed are shown on the linked page. These include racks that use tracks for adjustability, racks that sit on the top of the bed rails and racks that install via drilling. These racks range quite a bit in their weight capacities, from 200-lbs for the DeeZee # DZ95053 side-mount rack up to 1250-lbs for the TracRac SR Sliding Rack with Extension # TH43003XT-501EX. None of these racks installs in the stake pockets. Such racks...

  • Will The Thule Ladder Rack Work With Mountain Top Retractable Tonneau Cover?
    My research tells me that the Mountain Top tonneau covers typically sit on top of the bed rails, in which case would interfere with any ladder rack including the Thule TracRac Sliding Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-782EX for your 2021 Silverado 1500 5-3/4' bed. If your specific cover happens to mount inside the bed rails then the Thule ladder rack may work, but we have not tested this so I can't say for sure if it will work or not. A tonneau cover that would 100% work with the Thule TracRac ladder...

  • Can both Roll-X and Trac Rac G2 go together on a 2014 Ram?
    I spoke with my contacts at both TracRac and also at Access about your 2014 Dodge Ram Quad Cab with the 6 ft bed. First, my contact at TracRac said that the TracRac Ladder Rack system, part # TH43003XT-501EX, is designed so that the rails are mounted at an even distance apart, and if the bed tapers as you said it does, they will extend outward when mounted to the top of the bed rails near the end of the bed. They did tell me that when installed the tracks are not completely off the bed...

  • Ladder Rack and Hard Tonneau Cover Together on a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
    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. Then you could install a tonneau cover that mounts BETWEEN the bed sides. Short bed: # BAK39203 Long...

  • Recommended Ladder Rack and Bike Rack for a 2020 Ram 1500 with an Ultra Flex Bed Cover
    Though I can confirm the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Cantilever - 1,250 lbs # TH43003XT-501EX will fit your 2020 Ram 1500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed, I cannot confirm it will fit with your Ultra Flex bed cover. This is due to the upright bars on the # TH43003XT-501EX canting inwards towards the middle of the bed. This causes folding covers to get caught up and not open all the way. Unfortunately, this will be the case with all the racks we carry that are compatible with...

  • What Ladder Rack do You Recommend for My 1993 Ford F-250 with an 8-Foot Bed?
    Yes, the Thule TracONE w/Cantilever # TH27000XT-EX is extremely easy to install/remove. The first installation will take a bit more time because you have to tighten the bolts on the crossbars to the bases. After that, you are absolutely correct in saying that you simply tighten the knobs on the c-clamps to install and remove. I went ahead and linked a video to this response that shows you how easy the tightening/removal process is. The process starts at timestamp 2:04.
