Review of the Buyers Products Ladder Racks on a 2017 Ford F-150


Today, on our 2017 Ford F 150 SuperCrew Cab, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Buyers Products Over-The-Cab Truck Bed Ladder Rack. Now I've got the silver installed, but it's also available in black, see etrailer.com. Now with this installed, it's going to allow us to carry ladders, lumbar, paddle boards, kayaks, surf skis, really anything elongated. As you can see, it's going to extend over our cab allowing us to carry those long tools or whatever it is we might be carrying. Now the whole thing is 134 inches long. It sits up about 35 inches from the top of our truck bed rail.

We're going to have more than enough room from the top of our cab to the underside of the bar. Again, we don't have to worry about anything coming in contact with that cab. Now it's about 76 inches wide, so we're also going to be able to carry a lot more than some of the other ladder racks out there.It's going to offer us the same width as basically what our truck bed is, so that's a nice feature. Now the three rails are what's going to help support our elongated cargo. Each rail includes two adjustable load stops, you can see these are adjustable along that.

These are going to help contain our cargo, and help it from shifting side to side. They also double as tie down points, that way we can pick up our favorite strap and run those through to help secure our cargo. Now you'll notice that it does have raised side rails. This is a common thing with most over the cab truck bed ladder racks. Ours stick up about seven and a half inches, this is going to prevent our gear from sliding off the rails.

These also double as tie down points to secure our gear. Now inside of our truck bed here, excuse me, our F 150 does have a five and a half foot bed, so we don't have a whole lot of room to carry those elongated ladders, lumbar or paddle boards or kayaks.Since those are large, they tend to go in first. If we we're to carry anything else on our trip, all of that would be piled on top of that stuff, making it difficult to access, not to mention it's also going to be hanging out past our tailgate, making it unsafe. With the ladder rack installed, it's going to allow us to easily carry those things and safely. Now on to how it's installed, it's a no drill installation, pretty simple, two J-style hooks go underneath our truck bed rail, and secure that upright to the top of the truck bed rail.

With them all installed, we can shake our entire truck, and as you can see, there is no movement, it doesn't flex, it's nice and solid. Now the whole thing is made out of aluminum, so if you ever wanted to take it off, with just a second set of hands, it's fairly lightweight, you can lift it off and put it on either a another truck or store it off your truck somewhere.All of the hardware is stainless steel, so along with it being aluminum and stainless steel, we don't need to worry about any rust or corrosion. I do recommend when you are assembling it to use some Anti-Seize, that way the stainless steel hardware does not get bound up. Now this whole thing has a weight capacity of 800 pounds, so again, we're going to be able to carry about as much as we want without exceeding that weight capacity. With that being said, that's going to complete our test fit of the Buyers Products Over-The-Cab Truck Bed Ladder Rack on our 2017 Ford F 150 SuperCrew Cab.
