Recommended Power Tonneau Covers That Can Work With a Ladder Rack On 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 6-1/2' Bed


I have a 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 Im looking for a Tonneau Cover and Ladder rack that will work together. Is this possible? Item 311-BLC95A17 and TH43002XT-781 Thanks

I have a couple options that you can choose from for your 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 with a 6-1/2' bed. As you mentioned the Pace Edwards Bedlocker Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover # 311-BLC95A17, I will start with the Pace Edwards Bedlocker Retractable Hard Tonneau Cover w/ Explorer Series Rails # 311-BEC95A17. The explorer rails will allow you to mount either their Pace Edwards Contractor Rig Rack Truck Bed Ladder Rack # 311-CR4005 that has a weight capacity of 1,200lbs or their Pace Edwards Utility Rig Rack Truck Bed Ladder Rack # 311-UR3005 that is rated for up to 600lbs.

My recommendation is going to be for the PowertraxPRO XR Hard Tonneau Cover # RTT-90462 as it has the backing of a limited lifetime warranty versus only a 3-year with the Pace Edwards. You will then be able to use the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack # Y01151-58 with the Tonneau Cover Adapter Kit # Y01155 to have a rack that is closer to the Thule # TH43002XT-781 that you were also looking at.
