Review from a similar Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


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 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.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


This rack looks great on my 2017 Toyota Tacoma. My truck has a hard top Tonneau cover and bed rail system. The rack will fit look closely at my pictures for installation.This was not hard to do if you are mechanically inclined. It will take you a bit of time to mount on the truck. Rack come with keys to keep someone from taking it. After seeing firsthand what it took to mount on the truck if a crook wants this rack it will take him/her a good amount of time to remove even if you do not put the locks on the bed rail clamps. Good and solid with the canoe on top. I gave it several test runs on the interstate at 70 mph.Would have gave this rack five stars but it takes a bit of messing around to install. Leaving for and eight hour tip to the Adirondacks soon i will update this when i return. 863229

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


Did some trimming on the truck bed rail to get max distance between brackets. I use the raise lower and removal function often and it’s ease to do. Only con is that I haven’t found a tonneau cover that works with it due to the bracket wrapping the bedrail. 793453

Probably the best rack I have ever purchased, I was looking for a ladder rack that could adjust easily to fit in a parking garage. Directions were very clear and easy to follow. All required tools are supplied. This rack can be removed fast if needed, and has lockable fittings to keep others from easily removing it. 765748

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


I have loaded this with lumber and other construction equip. Has not failed. Some times reinstalling the racks is a little frustrating but patience pays off. Once I entered a parking garage and forgot they were up because they are adjustable, got out of truck and lowered them which only takes a minute and was still able to park . Like these . 736279

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro in Ladder Racks


This rack is perfect for my purpose. I routinely get lumber for woodworking that is 12 foot long. With this rack and a rooftop rack option for my Tacoma it is very easy to transport it. The only thing that would improve it is if it were somehow modified so that it could be adjusted down all the way. The Tacoma truck bed sides get in the way of lowering the rack very far. 713142

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

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

  • Solutions for Needing Ladder Rack Bars to Match Height of Roof Rack Crossbars
    I wish there was, but we don't carry Whispbar anymore and when we did there wasn't a way to adjust the height of the bars. The only solution we'd have would be a ladder rack that fits your 2014 Toyota Tacoma that has adjustable height uprights like the Thule Xsporter Pro part # TH500XT-XK3 which you could use to match the height of your ladder rack. Or you could install the cantilever # TH24002XT which attaches to the front crossbar of the ladder rack you have to give you an additional...

  • Will Yakima Cargo Boxes fit the Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack Crossbars
    If your Yakima cargo box uses the mounting hardware like # Y8870084 or # Y90135 then it would open up wide enough to fit around the bars on the Thule ladder rack # TH500XT-Xk3. The hardware can accommodate a bar that is 3-1/2 inches wide which is what the Xsporter bars on the ladder rack are. The bars are also 1-3/4 inches tall so they are within the range of the Yakima clamp-style mounting hardware.

    Yes, the Thule Xsporter Pro ladder rack # TH500XT-XK3 comes with special mounting brackets that utilize the factory track system in your 2016 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab. I have included a picture showing the bracket. You can see the square part that fits in the channel of the track system. There isn't a custom roof rack that will fit your truck but you could use # DTA968 as a temporary solution. There are no tonneau covers that will work with the ladder rack because the ladder rack...

    To support the span of your bed, the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 450 lbs # TH500XT-XK3 has an adjustable height that you could use to utilize your roof rack and have two more points of support between the t-bar. Another option is to use a ladder rack like # MT70386 but the height will not match up with your roof rack when using this product in most cases. It will provide support between the two if the leveling is not an issue for your application....

  • What is the Difference Between Models of Thule XSporter?

As far as the models you referenced, the only difference is fit. The The Thule XSporter # TH500XT is a fit for a 2017 Nissan Titan, while the # TH500XT-XK3 is for a 2005 - 2015 Toyota Tacoma with a Deck Rail System while the # TH500XT-XK4...
