How to Install the Thule TracRac TracONE Ladder Racks on a 2018 Ford F-150


Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F-150, we'll be taking a look at and showing you how to install the TracRac TracONE truck bed ladder rack. This ladder rack is going to allow us to carry lumber, ladders, and other large gear on top of our truck bed. The ladder rack is fully adjustable to the end of our crossbars, allowing this to be used with multiple different trucks. We simply loosen up our two bolts on either side of our leg. Then we can adjust it in or out. Our ladder rack system is made out of an aluminum construction, so it's strong, durable, and rustproof, but it's also very lightweight.

Our ladder rack is going to include tie downs, which will allow us to secure down our gear. These are fully adjustable along the length of our crossbar, and what's great about this bar is that we can also place in channel-mounted accessories like bike racks.This is going to be a no-drill application. It's simply going to clamp around our truck bed rails and secure in place. The TracRac TracONE truck bed ladder rack has an 800 pound carrying capacity, and the cross bars are going to measure 65 inches long by four inches wide by one-and-a-half inches tall. And the upright support is going to measure 26-and-one-quarter inches tall.

To start our install, we're going to take our two clamps. We've already placed on our ladder rack and made sure that it's positioned out the correct way so that we have even crossbar spread on each side. We're going to take our clamp, we're going to fit it around our rail and the foot platform. And we'll slide that as far back as we can. Want to make sure that nothing underneath here is going to interfere with our clamp when we start to tighten it down.

We'll take our wing nut, place that underneath on top of our bolt, and we'll start to tighten that down by hand. Next we'll do the same thing for our other clamp, making sure that it's closer to the end of our foot. Now we'll take our ratchet with a 7/32 Allen key on the end, and we're going to start to tighten down our bolts.Want to make sure that's secured down. Now we'll just repeat that same process for our other three sides. Once we have all those secured down, we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road.

That's going to be our completed look at the TracRac TracONE truck bed ladder rack on our 2018 Ford F-150.
