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.

Product works great, just wish there was more instructions and better detailed instructions. There was no instructions for the adapter kit for the rail system in my truck.



by:
Toyota Tacoma

A great looking product with decent load capacity, but here’s a few issues for me:
1. The instructions are terrible. No words, just pictograms (like IKEA furniture). I had lots of head scratching as there’s extra parts for multiple fits.
2. The stanthions are very difficult to slide up and down. The knobs falls off before the mechanism even loosens.
3. The stanthions do not lower as far as I hoped. The profile of the Tacoma bed prevents them from lowering all the way to the bed floor. Wish I knew this before I purchased. This is a big deal.
4. Tightening the bolts that retain the brackets to the bed rails is finicky at best, and they have loosened over time requiring retightening.
This rack is expensive and has to be super popular with Taco owners so one would think they would have ironed these issues out in advance.

The set a if Ladder Racks went together real easy. I put them together myself in a little over an hour. I think the look perfect too.



by:
2012 Toyota Tacoma

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.

Box came kinda messed up ,but everything in side was fine ,took about 4 hours to put together, the xk4 clamps were kinda hard to get on there but in the end it was a good catch and being this was a special order for a tacoma 17

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


I recently made a 4 hour trip home after picking up a new kayak while using the following equipment for the first time: Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack, Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier w/Tie-Downs - J-Style, Thule Watersports Adapter for Aeroblade/Aeroblade Edge Bars and Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs. I'm impressed with the performance of all of those components.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


The Thule Xsporter Pro fits perfectly on my 2006 Tundra. Easy to install. Very study. I also want to mention the outstanding customer service provided by Samantha H at etrailer. She answered all my questions during the ordering process and kept me informed when product shipped. I received the product two days earlier than initially quoted.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


It was a HOT and sweaty install, but then I live in Kihei, HI where surfboards need a ride to the
beach! ALL the parts and pieces were there, very helpful. Measured, tested; made sure my truck would fit in the garage. After looking at dozens of options I was so glad I bought this.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


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

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable 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.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable 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.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


it is junk. The load stop tensioners seized up. Two of the end end caps broke off which allowed one of the load stops to then falls off in transit. Watched it bounce down the parkway. I have been using Thule for years. Always happy. I don't know what happened to the quality. It is no longer in their product.



by:

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


Rack failed within the first month. Locking mech locks up, don't not lock and unscrews itself during travel. Locks to truck fell off. Protective caps broke after several adjustments to hold ladders up. Dont waste your money. I thought Thule was high quality and was wrong.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


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.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


I ordered a truck rack Monday Sept 17th just after 8am pacific time. Within an hour I received an e-mail that the order was being processed. A short time later i received an e-mail that the order had shipped . I received my order on Friday the 21st. I have installed the Rack in my truck and it looks great. I am a return customer and would recommend etrailer to anyone in the market for any items they may need. Etrailer your great. Thanks for the fantastic service.

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


Great rack! Only thing I can say bad is that cat washes won't let you take it through. Guess it has to do with the base breaking and tearing up equipment and people. I just wash my truck myself so no worries!

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


Best rack system ever!!! I put it together in less than an hour. Now, I can lower the crossbars and drive the truck in my garage with the kayak rack still on it. Note to self: 7ft garage doors are just too low... Fantastic customer service from Allison K. She kept me updated every step of the way from order to delivery. Thanks for another great product from etailer!

Review from a similar Xsporter Pro Adjustable in Ladder Racks


They seemed good was relatively easy to put together the look pretty. If you happen to bump into anything with them slowly or not they will pop at the aluminum base on the side of the truck. As always with racks you should be aware of any items hanging but it did not slow down or give a warning you bump into something it just snapped. They are light and easy - also make sure to lubricate the parts that move or they can bind up.

    The Thule Xporter Pro Ladder rack part # TH500XTB is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Toyota Tundra as long as you don't have the deck rail system. If you have the # TH500XTB you then have everything you'd need. You just wouldn't use the mount kit that you have now that was Tacoma specific.

  • Can Rear Uprights with Crossbar on Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack be Removed Together
    The uprights and crossbar on Thule Xsporter Pro ladder rack # TH500XTB-THXK4B can be removed as one unit but you would have to take the end caps off the bottoms of each upright every time or leave them off. Another option is to use Rola ladder rack # 59799 which also fits the 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Deck Rail system. This rack features 2 knobs per upright and if you were to loosen them you could push that section of the ladder rack forward or back along the Deck Rail tracks as needed....

We don't have a specific way to trim the uprights and bars since that's not something this was intended for, but if you have the patience and skills/tools I am sure you could find a way. Another option to consider would be an adjustable height ladder rack that is confirmed to fit your 2018 Toyota Tacoma like the Thule part # TH500XTB-THXK4B. The bars of this are also pretty long...

One of the things I really like about this setup is the clamps used will fit directly to the Deck Rail System so you don't have to uninstall that to use the rack.

  • What Ladder Rack do You Recommend for Transporting a Canoe on My 2020 Toyota Tacoma 6-Foot Bed?
    When you say that your 2020 Toyota Tacoma has bed rails, I am assuming you mean that your Tacoma has the Deck Rail system installed. Unfortunately, Yakima does not make a ladder rack that is compatible with your 6-foot bed with the Deck Rail system. However, if you plan to install the ladder rack only when you transport a kayak on your truck, the Thule Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - 450 lbs # TH500XTB-THXK4B is an amazing choice.

I called my contact at Thule, and he confirmed that the static weight capacity of the Thule Xporter is about 800 pounds. If you need a tent recommendation, I recommend the Thule Tepui Foothill - 2 Person # TH37HJ.
