TracRac Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 Short Bed

Question:

I have a 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 and need to get a Tonneau Cover for it. I will need to haul Canoe and Kayaks so Ill also need a Ladder Rack. I like the TracRac SR sliding rack system. It fits all of my needs. I also like the BakFlip Tonneau cover, mainly the MX4. I realize they make a combination with a rack system, however Im not that crazy about it and it isnt as heavy duty. Are they compatible? Is there a similar option out there? Thanks

For your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 with a 6-1/2 foot bed we have just what you'd need. First you'd want the sliding TracRac ladder rack part # TH43002XT-781EX which is confirmed as a fit for your truck and then for a tonneau cover the best solution is the BAK Revolver part # BAK39121 which will fit and work well with the ladder rack.

Not all covers can fit with the TracRac's but we have found that the Revolver is the best fitting solution and it's also very heavy duty.

Question:

That cover does look good however I've had vinyl parts on my previous Tonneau cover and it ended up tearing. Is the MX4 by BakFlip compatible with the TracRac sliding Ladder Rack. Thanks for the info

For some people the MX4 will work but for others the folding portion is too wide to fit past the base rails of the TracRac.

We've had very good luck though with the Revolvers though. They aren't prone to damage at all.
