Review of the Thule Ladder Racks on a 2005 Ford F-150


Today in our 2005 F150, we're testing the Tulley Exporter Pro, the Truck Bed Ladder Rack and it has the capacity to hold up to 450 lbs. Part # for that is TH500XT. Now this is a great clap on style ladder rack, there easy to install. We also have this pad here that goes underneath the rack so that you won't damage your truck bed there. So we're going to go head and climb up in our bed. Now we do have 2 different types of claps, we have our back clap that's where the lock is going to slide into.

Whenever we have that in place. And when we're installing it, we'll slide the clap on, and then place the bottom piece in and your going to just tighten it up. So we'll and our front one one all the way at the front, put the under side of the clap in and just tighten it down, hand tight. And then we'll take our Allen key and tighten it down the rest of the way. Now these ladder racks are great if you want to carry kayaks or other type of large items such as surfboards or anything like that on top of the ladder racks so you don't damage your bed or scratch up any paint in there. So we'll go ahead and take our back clap, we're just going to push it part of a way in the inaudible 00:02:03 here.

Then we take our piece once again and tighten that down. And then we'll just take our lock, we'll just start it right there and we can lock that up. Well we'll go ahead take a look at a few of the features of the ladder rack itself, here we can adjust the height with the black knobs, up and down make sure your front and back are even. With the same Allen key, you can go head and loosen the 2 bolts we have on here and change the lengths so you can fit different types of trucks that you may have. And we also have these great tie down points on our spots here.

So you can just pull the rubber here we have out of the T- track, loosen these and move them and down the track and tie down anything you might have in the back of your truck bed. So that's going to complete our look at the Tulley Exporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack and how it works on our 2005 Ford F150.
