Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Tacoma Regular Cab


I recently purchased a 2014 toyota tacoma reg cab. i am looking for a ladder rack bed cover combo. any idea of two products that would work with each other?


Expert Reply:

The TracRac Ladder Rack system you referenced, part # TH27000XT-EX, is one of three confirmed fits for a ladder rack for your 2014 Toyota Tacoma. This fixed-mount ladder rack mounts to the underside of your Tacoma's bed rails with clamp-on hardware, no drilling required. A video is linked to illustrate. All ladder racks for your truck can be seen on the link provided.

Typically tonneau covers and ladder racks will use the same points on the truck's bed rails for installation. The various manufacturers of these aftermarket items do not test fit their products with each other's accessory items. Some soft tonneau covers do not cover the tops of the bed rails, but their installation hardware (front-to-back rails) will still need to attach to the inside edges of the bed rails where there will be unavoidable interference with the TracRac system.

For reference I have linked you to our page for all tonneau covers for your Tacoma where you can choose your bed length to see the available covers for your vehicle.

You might consider using a hitch-mount load support such as the Darby # DTA944 along with a cab roof rack bar to carry your loads. This would allow you to install the tonneau cover of your choice without concern for interference. The link provided will show you single-bar racks for your truck; simply choose your cab style from the drop-down menu.
