Correct 2018 Ford F-150 6-1/2 Foot Bed Thule Xsporter Pro Shift Overland Truck Bed Rack

Question:

I have a 2018 F150 with a 6.5 foot bed, will this fit my truck if I also buy TH21501? If so do you know the height to the top of the crossbar from the actual truck bed rail?

Expert Reply:

Yes, the Thule Base Rails # TH21501 can be paired with the Thule Xsporter Pro Shift Overland Truck Bed Rack # TH54RR to fit your 2018 Ford F-150 with the 6-1/2' bed. This system will add 18" of height from the top of your bed rail to the top of the crossbars. That same measurement is 22-3/4" to the top of the load stops if you will be using them.

Question:

No shorter leg options, I need something about 12 inches high

Expert Reply:

For something around the 12" high mark I recommend the Yakima OutPost HD Overland Truck Bed Rack # Y01152-58. This doesn't come with the sliding rails but it has industry standard-sized crossbars so you can use it for hauling or for recreational carriers, and this only sits 13" above your truck bed rails.

I actually had the opportunity to install this on a 2020 F-250 so I'm linking that video for you to check out.
