Option For Tonneau Cover & Rack System on 2019 Nissan Frontier King Cab w/ 6 Foot Bed & Utili-Track


Having a conundrum…2019 Nissan Frontier, king cab, 6’ bed with utility tie down track no stake pockets. I’m having trouble finding a hard cover/ rack combo. Any guidance would be appreciated. Thanks

You're not wrong that it's a conundrum; I did quite a bit of searching and could only find one option for a tonneau cover with a rack system for your 2019 Nissan Frontier King Cab with a 6' bed and Utili-Track system. It isn't a standard ladder rack, it would be a rack system from Thule that attaches to the T-slots of a Pace Edwards tonneau cover. For the cover you can use one of the following:

- Pace Edwards Full-Metal JackRabbit Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover with Explorer Series Rails # 311-FEN3857

- Pace Edwards JackRabbit Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover with Explorer Series Rails # 311-JEN3857

The only difference between these two covers is the Full-Metal JackRabbit offers fully aluminum panels with a black powder coat finish, while the standard JackRabbit has vinyl bonded on top of the aluminum panels. Apart from that they are the same cover, and both have the Explorer Series Rails with T-slots that allow you to mount a rack system, which is made up of the following parts:

- Thule ProBar Evo Crossbars # TH713600
- Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH460R
- Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet # THKIT3101
- (Optional): Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400

Due to the Frontier's lack of stake pockets and narrower side rails, this is the only way to mount a rack system with a tonneau cover. If the more important thing for you is a heavy-duty ladder rack, you would have to forgo the tonneau cover and instead stick with a traditional ladder rack, the 800 lb. capacity Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705.
