How to Install the Thule TracRac TracONE Truck Bed Ladder Rack on a 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty


Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F250 we're going to be taking a look at the Thule TracRac TracONE truck bed ladder rack, part number TH27000XTB. It's also available in sliver using part number TH27000XT.Our ladder rack is going to make it easy to free up space in our truck bed and we can mount either our ladder or other longer loads up above. Whether you're working in the construction field, or if you're into water sports and you need to carry a kayak or canoe; our ladder rack is going to be a great option to free up that space in your bed while still be able to carry all your gear.We're going to have adjustable stops with build in tie downs making it easy to secure everything. We can simply loosen up the knob here and slide it anywhere along the track, put it up right against our gear, and tighten the knob to secure it down.The uprights on our ladder rack are going to be 26-1/4" tall. They're also adjustable up here at the top so we can match the width of our truck bed. With the Super Duty having such a tall cab on it you want to keep in mind that we're only going to have about 3/4" from the bottom from our cross bar to the top of our cab.

Now, the overall height that we're going to be adding at the top of our cross bar is only 2-1/4" over the roof. If you're carrying something elongated loads that are going to extend past your roof onto the cab of the truck you may want to keep in mind it may come in contact.Our ladder rack is extremely lite weight because it has an aluminum construction, but it is also very strong and durable having an 800lb capacity. With it being aluminum and the powder coat finish it's going to be completely rust proof.As far as installation goes it's going to be extremely quick and easy. We're going to have a few clamps that we can put in place and all we're going to need is a 7/32nd allen bit to tighten up the bolts.If you're looking for a ladder rack, whether to carry a ladder, lumber, or even some of those water sports carriers our Thule ladder rack is going to be a great option. We're not going to have to drill at all and it's only going to have to take a few minutes to put the whole system on.Our ladder rack is extremely lite weight so we can just pick it up and we're going to sit it down over the rails of our truck bed.

There are some rubber pads that we can make sure to put underneath the ladder rack so we don't scratch the bed rails on our truck. To secure our ladder rack down we're going to have a couple c-clamps in the tip we're going to slip on into the bottom of the bolt. We're going to slide our clamp over the edge of our ladder rack. Put the clamp in place, we're just going get it hand tight for now.Each leg of the ladder rack is going to have two clamps on each side, so spread them apart one on each end. Once we have them on there hand tight we're going to come back with a 7/32nd allen and we're going to tighten up all the way.

Once you have all the clamps tight we're going to load our ladder up and hit the road.That will finish up your look at the Thule TracRac TracONE truck bed ladder rack, part number TH27000XTB.
