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.


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.

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.

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

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


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

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

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

  • Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 5-1/2 ft Bed
  • You are on the right track. The only way to fit a tonneau cover and ladder rack in a truck like your 2018 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed will be a Sliding Thule TracRac # TH43002XT-508 plus a Bak Revolver part # BAK79329. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions that shows how the rails attach to the stacke pockets for you to check out.

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover and Ladder Rack to Carry Kayaks and Bikes with 2018 F-150 5-1/2' Bed
  • Since you sound like you will be pretty active I recommend installing the RetraxONE XR Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Trax Rail # RTT-60373 on your 2018 Ford F-150 and then using the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Rack w/ 78" HD Crossbars # Y01151-59 with the Adapter Kit # Y01155 to carry your kayaks and bikes. You can use the Yakima BigStack # Y04041 to secure both of your kayaks and then two of the Yakima ForkLift # Y02098 bike rack for both of your bikes. This will put you around that $3,000...

  • Are Thule TracRac SR Ladder Racks Removeable and Compatible with BAK Revolver X4 Tonneau Cover
  • Yes, you are correct that the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Racks are compatible with the BAK Revolver X4 tonneau covers such as # BAK79329. And the TracRac SR does allow the uprights to be removed completely from their tracks or moved to your desired positions for specific cargo needs. The TracRacs for your 5-1/2-foot bed 2018 F-150 are the standard 2-bar system # TH43002XT-508 and the 3-bar system that includes an over-the-cab cantilever # TH43002XT-508EX.

  • Will the Thule TracRac SR Work with the BAKFlip MX4 on a 2018 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • I do have some options for you but the Thule TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-508 and the BAKFlip MX4 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK48329 are not a good fit. The rails on the SR are rather wide so they would likely overlap with the seals on the MX4. In addition to this, you would need to move the rear rack forward in order to fold the cover up each time and with continuous use the seals on the cover will wear out. The only tonneau cover that we know for sure works...

  • Bike Carrier Options for 2018 Ford F-150 with Tonneau Cover
  • There are a few combinations of tonneau cover and ladder rack for trucks like your 2018 F-150 that will work together. The key is that the two products cannot use the same mounting points. As an example, the 5-1/2-foot bed F-150 without the cargo management system can use the BAK Revolver X2 tonneau cover # BAK39329 that rolls up. With this cover installed it is possible to also use the TracRac SR Siding ladder rack # TH43002XT-508 that also fits that 5-1/2-foot bed truck. Unfortunately,...

  • Low Profile Rack and Tonneau Cover For a 2015 Ford F-150 SuperCrew Short Bed Truck

Additionally, these systems tend to not be compatible with racks when equipped with roll up or retractable covers. Instead, I recommend a traditional ladder rack system. One of...

  • BAK Industries does indeed have a hard Tonneau cover that will work with the # TH43002XT-508 TracRac SR Sliding Truck Ladder Rack. The BAK BAKFlip F1 Tonneau Cover you mentioned, part # BAK72329 will overlap the tops of the bed sides by 1/2-3/4 of an inch on each side. Installing the ladder rack would interfere with the operation of the Tonneau. However, BAK offers the Revolver Roll Up, part # BAK39329 which mounts completely to the inside of the bed rails, and will NOT interfere with...

  • BakFlip G2 Compatibility With TracRac SR Ladder Rack
  • The TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508 is a fit for your 2016 Ford F-150 with 5.5 foot bed. The BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26329 will work with this rack because the rails of the tonneau fit inside the bed rails and the SR sits on top of the rails mounting into the stake pockets. What is not known is how well the edges of the tonneau will hold up over time as the SR rail does make contact when folding, yet will allow access. The only cover that we have...

  • Which TracRac SR Ladder Rack Fits 2016 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Ft Bed/How Many Tracks are On the Base Rail
  • The TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508 that you referenced is the correct TracRac SR fit for your 2016 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot bed. It has two tracks that run on top of the base rails that allow for either upright to mount to. If you check out the attached pictures you will see how they both ride on the rails. We do not carry the Tracbox or the TracTonneau for any of our TracRac ladder rack options.

  • Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Combination for 2018 Ford F-150 Short Box for Kayak Transport
  • Thank you for all the details on your desired setup. In my opinion nothing compares to the combination of the TracRac SR adjustable ladder rack and BAK Revolver hard tonneau cover. Both of these are outstanding products and they are fully compatible with each other on your F-150 short box. The USA-made TracRac SR sliding ladder rack # TH43002XT-508 has a 1250-lb weight rating and includes adjustable load stops. This rack gives you the wide crossbar stance and weight capacity you...

  • How Does TracRac SR Ladder Rack Attach to Bed Rails of 2016 Ford F-150 and Fit with Tonneau Cover
  • For your 2016 Ford F-150 the TracRac SR Ladder Rack you need is part # TH43002XT-508. This attaches to the inside of the stake pockets on the truck bed rails which means the insides of the bed rails are free to allow a tonneau to install. I attached a picture that I took from the install instructions that should give you an idea how it installs as well. Then for a tonneau you would need to go with one that mounts between the bed rails like the part # BAK39329. I also attached a link...

  • Is there a Ladder Rack that Works with BAKFlip G2 Tonneau Cover on 2014 Ford F-150 Supercrew
  • the BAK ladder rack was designed to work specifically with the BAKFlip CS or BAKFlip CS-F1 but no other models. Your best option is TracRac sliding ladder rack # TH43002XT-508 which mounts to the tops of the bed sides using the stake pocket holes. But even with this ladder rack there is the potential for the rack and Tonneau cover to interfere with each other.

  • Availability of TracRac SR Sliding Ladder Rack for a 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 foot Bed
  • We do have the TracRac SR that will fit your 2014 Ford F-150 with a 5-1/2 foot bed, for that you will want part # TH43002XT-508. You can add the over-the-cab extension later with part # TH24002XT. As for the fold up tonneau cover that you have already installed on your F-150, it really depends on the style. If it is a soft tonneau cover that mounts inside the bed rails then it will most likely fit, but if it is one of the hard fold up covers then the rails on the TracRac SR overhang...

  • Which Upright Goes In Front of Other for the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TA21508-02
  • I checked the installation instructions for the TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack # TH43002XT-508 that you referenced and the rear upright will be the one that slides on the outside track and the front upright will be the one that installs on the inside track. This happens to be how you wanted to install the uprights so it should work out very well for you. The instructions also indicate that the legs of each of the uprights are designed to specifically be used on either the front...

  • Can Elongated Clamps be Used On a Ladder Rack with a Tonneau Cover 2014 Ford F-150
  • I do have tonneau cover and ladder rack options available for your 2014 Ford F-150 but you will not be able to use a set of elongated clamps to attach a ladder rack that mounts inside the bed rails over the base rails on a tonneau cover that mounts inside the bed rails. The clamps would have to extend both over and past the base rails for the tonneau cover and to my knowledge, such clamps do not exist. The only combination of tonneau cover and ladder rack we have confirmed to work with...

  • BAKFlip F1 Compatibility with a Ladder Rack for 2015 Ford F-150 with 5-1/2 Foot Bed
  • I have a ladder rack and tonneau cover recommendation for you, but we have found that the BAKFlip F1 covers don't work well with ladder racks such as the TracRack SR # TH43002XT-508 or # TH43002XT-508EX. The rubber strip on the outside of the tonneau cover many times will not lay flat against the truck bed side rail because it interferes with the base rail for the ladder rack. The tonneau cover I recommend instead is the BAK Revolver X2 # BAK39329. This cover is a hard, roll up cover...

  • Will the Thule Sliding Ladder Rack Work with a BAKFlip G2 Hard Folding Tonneau Cover
  • The best option that I can offer you and still allow access to your tonneau cover is to use a truck mounted roof rack system and use an additional vertical support that mounts in your truck hitch. To accomplish this you would need a roof rack system and I would suggest the Rhino-Rack system for your 2009 Ford F-150. This system is comprised of the # DK150H which are the mounting clips that will fit your truck.Then you will need the # RRRLKVAH, which is a single Vortex Aero Style Crossbar....
