How Can I Mount a Single Crossbar on the Cab of My 2021 F-150 for Hauling a Ladder?


My 2021 f 150 super crew LEER bed cap has Thule tracker ll square bar roof racks. I have the Squarebars that have the open channel underneath. They are too close together for me to carry a 30 foot ladder. So Im thinking about moving the front Bar on the bed cap forward onto the cab above the front seat area giving more separation between two bars to accommodate the long ladder. So, I would need a naked mount that I could use with the existing square bar and foot from the bed cap.

If you have Thule Squarebars that have open channels underneath you have the newer Evo SquareBars like the # TH712500. With these bars, we do not have a half system of the Tracker II feet and fit kit because Thule discontinued those parts.

In order to use your current SquareBar on your 2021 F-150's cab, you will need to use the feet and fit kit that are designed to fit your cab. Those are the Evo Clamp Feet for Thule Crossbars - Naked Roofs - Qty 4 # TH710501 along with the Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet - 145271 # TH29TX. Unfortunately, these parts are designed for 2 total crossbars. Thule does not make half kits for mounting a single crossbar on the cab.

If you want a more economical and less wasteful option, I recommend using a single SeaSucker Monkey Bar for Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long - Black # SEA54FR. With the Monkey Bar, you can still keep 2 of your Thule SquareBars on your Leer bed cap. The Monkey Bar comes with an impressive 150-pound weight capacity and can easily be installed or removed in seconds. It is perfect for transporting a ladder. If you need straps to attach you ladder, I suggest the etrailer Cam Buckle Straps # E98876-4.
