Review of the Yakima OverHaul HD Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack


Hi everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer and today we are looking at the Yakima OverHaul HD truck bed ladder rack for tonneau covers here at etrailer. If you have a tonneau cover, or if you want to add a tonneau cover to your vehicle, but you also want a ladder rack, these are great options because these mount into the t-track channels on your tonneau cover. So make sure you have that channel right there so that you can mount through these ladder racks to it. This works with Pace Edwards, RetraxPRO, and really any other tonneau cover that has those channels. If you already have a Yakima OverHaul HD, or an OutPost, you can get this adapter kit to adapt your ladder rack to your tonneau cover.

This allows you to mount it in the channels and replaces the quick release system that your other ladder rack system may have. The uprights themselves have a lot of features. One, you can lock them. So after it's unlocked, and if you want to just take off the entire system, you can take off the lock and then loosen your bolts and take off this ladder rack quickly and completely. Another thing is that this is made of a sturdy aluminum construction with this nice matte black finish.

So it's actually a lot lighter than I expected but it's also super sturdy. These are the OverHaul HD uprights. So that means they can adjust up and down. They also have markings in the back which helps you as you adjust them. Now, if you want something that is fixed you can also get the OutPost HD instead of the OverHaul it's really just up to you on what's the best application for your adventures, as well as your truck.

On the inside, you have these integrated tie down points and it's really strong. It's very sturdy. But a nice little feature that they added is how it has a bottle opener here at the bottom. For you Yakima fans out there, these work with your same key system, so if you have Yakima accessories that you use a certain key you can switch out your lock core so that you can use the same key for all of your Yakima accessories. With the OverHaul HD system you have a 300-pound weight capacity if you're driving on-road.

Now for you, my friends that like to go off-road or off-roading you do have 180 weight capacity when you do so. So just keep that in mind. This system uses HD bars. So what we have here are the 68-inch-long bars but those depend on your truck or your fit. I highly recommend using our fit guide to find the best length for your vehicle's truck bed as well as whether you want overhang or not. The HD bars themselves have t-track channels. So if you have t-track accessories these will mount into them. When you slide your tonneau cover, you'll see how the cover fits underneath and doesn't interfere with your ladder rack system. The OverHaul HD can be adjusted up and down. Now the measurement starts from the top of your tonneau cover or the top of your rails wherever they are on your tonneau cover. So the lowest it can be is 19 inches, which is about here. And the tallest is 30 inches from the top of your rails. For our Tacoma, the measurements for the bars, with our 68-inch-long bars, we'll take some measurements and it is - we have an overhang of 12 inches on the side and these bars are about 40 inches apart. And you can get up to 52 inches for your crossbar spread. This is here on a five-foot bed on our Tacoma but if you have longer beds, you can get further apart. Just note that the minimum crossbar distance for this system is 36 inches. With these uprights you do have some points here where you can install sidebar rails. So if you want to attach accessories that attach straight to the uprights, this is where you can put them. This system uses HD bars and that stands for "heavy duty," which they are. Now the bars themselves are three inches wide. They're slightly larger. So just keep that in mind if you have accessories that clamp around it. I recommend getting t-track accessories to just get the most out of your bars. And you also have these integrated tie down points, which is awesome, just to keep your cargo secure. As for how this works with your tonneau cover, I'll take some measurements of the channels. Now, this sits measuring from the center of the channel to the end of the base it's two-and-a-half inches. And that was a look here at our Yakima OverHaul HV kit ladder rack for your truck bed tonneau covers here at etrailer.com.
