Review of the Thule T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack for full-size pickups. This is a premium ladder rack that's going to allow you to carry items, such as lumber, ladders, or other extended items over your truck bed. As you can see, this frees up space in your bed for all the tools you need for the job. This'll keep those long items out of your bed that may stick out the back or require your tailgate to be open. This'll make it easier to maneuver in parking lots and around the job site by reducing the length of your truck.It's not only practical for on the job use, but it's great for when you want to unwind and for all your recreational purposes. It'll carry your favorite water sport accessories, such as kayaks, canoes or paddle boards, allowing for all this extra room in your bed for coolers and other beach accessories.This is a high quality ladder rack that has all the bells and whistles.

Let's take a look at some of the features that sets it apart from the other ladder racks in its class. It features two load stops per bar with loops for tie-down hooks. The load stops are also adjustable to fit various size ladders and loads. There's a channel up top to allow the load stops to slide. Now unlike other designs that have this channel up top that may cause some wind noise, there's a specially designed lip to help the air flow over it and keep it down.

And when compared to square bars, these are going to be quieter and when compared to round bars they're going to have more surface area for your load to sit on.The load bars are going to measure about four inches wide and 1 3/4 inches tall. The crossbars are 69 1/2 inches long which gives you plenty of room for your gear and depending on the size of your truck bed, you may have some overhang, so this way your not missing out on any of this bar's extreme length. To the top of the load bar, it's going to add about 27 1/4 inches from the height of your bed rail.Another unique feature of these crossbars is the channel opening. This will allow you to add additional slotted accessories, such as tie-downs and easily remove your load stops. Also located underneath is the same channel as up top with the opening.

This will allow you to add the same accessories but with a additional adjustment.The uprights are adjustable to fit both mid-size and full-size trucks. They'll side on the lower channel of your load bars. There's two bolts in the upright that connect it to the load bar, but for additional support there's a stabilizer link here, which increases the carrying capacity to 1,000 pounds evenly distributed. And that weight capacity is going to be higher than most other universal load bars, which is going to allow you to carry the most load possible. The uprights have tie-down points as well featuring four cleats which will allow you to use hooks and other straps to keep your load steady.The whole system is a clamp on design, so there's no drilling required.

Compared to other designs, this one features a long clamp foot to increase surface area to prevent damage to the underside of your bed rail. The clamp has a unique design which will angle down and slide into this channel to hold it tight on the top and an elongated foot which will increase surface area as it clamps underneath your bed rails to help prevent damage for a tighter, more stable fit.Another thing that sets this apart from other universal ladder racks is the rubber sheet protector. This will go between your upright foot and your bedrail and will help provide extra grip and protect your finish from abrasions.It's constructed of aluminum, so it's going to be resistant to rust and corrosion. And it's also going to be light weight, about 25 pounds per assembly, making it easy to install by yourself. These are also designed to work with crossover toolboxes, so you don't have to worry about them getting in the way. Each clamp has a location to mount your toolbox, so you don't have to worry about drilling into your bed like you would traditionally. And if you have an extra wide toolbox, an additional clamp and small mounting location are available, so you got a place to mount it further out.If you need some extra support, an over the cab extension is available with part number TA24002. The extension will mount to your existing load bars and will give you an additional 32 inches above the cab of your truck.And that completes our look at the T-Rac Pro2 Truck Bed Ladder Rack.
