Thule TracRac Slotted Crossbars

The sturdy aluminum crossbars on all Thule 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


Thule TracRac Load Stop Accessories

Included with your Thule 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.


Thule 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 Thule TracRac base rails and rack system, as well most Thule 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, Thule TracRac has taken that 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.

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

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. 213054

Review from a similar Thule SR in Ladder Racks


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 Thule 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

Well built product. Easy install. Combined it with a Bakflip F1 Tonneau cover. Minus a few minor things they work well together. 521238

Review from a similar Thule 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

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

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

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

I have owned many of these ladder racks and they are great. My only recommendation is to use anti seize lubricant on any of the bolts that need to be loosened and tightened to adjust racks and for rack removal as the bolts are stainless steel and the rack materials are aluminum. Enjoy! 716817

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

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

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

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
