TracRac Features / Overview | TracRac

Cantilever Extension - Fullsize | TracRac

Regretfully, I think the TracRac tonneau cover has been discontinued. I am not sure if other tonneau covers would fit, as it requires the cover to be mounted between the bed rails. I sent an email to TracRac to see if that has been discontinued.

Expensive, but an excellent system.

Set of truck bed rails (your choice in supplier) I went with the single pipe style some are 3 piece and I was worried about how a 3 piece would hold up to the weight.

4 Global Truss Clamps (Black 2" wrap-around half cheseborough style clamps rated at 1100lbs) You can find these on Ebay
Global Truss Pro Clamp 4 Pack Black New in The Box Ships Same Day | eBay


I used the 80/20 Inc for the cross bars and the rest of the rack.
80/20 Inc has an Ebay Store
http://stores.ebay.com/8020incgaragesale/

I used the 15 Series in Black (15 Series = 1-1/2”)

4-15 S 1515-Black x 72 N
1- 15 S 1515-Black x 24 N
1- 15 S 1515-Black x 20 N
4- 15 Series 2 Hole Inside Corner Bracket 4302-BLACK N
4- 15 Series 2 Hole Inside Corner Gusset 4332-BLACK N
4- Joining Plate 15 S 4340 N
2 sets of Hardware 5/16-18 x .687" FBHSCS & Economy T-Nut #3320 (25pc) N
8- 1515 End caps

I ordered some extra pieces so I can make a shelf for an Ice Chest, Generator and so on.


I used a 2” Aluminum U-Channel for the bracket to connect the cross bars to the clamps.
Ordered through Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003U6IBHU/..._26725410_item_26725410_item

I ordered a replacement front wheel cradles for the Thule T2 Bike Rack from etrailer.com and theSoftride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie-Downs. I used the arm from my old rack for the rubber mounts to mount to the bike frame. Etrailer.com has just about any piece or part for a bike rack.

95% of this rack will just bolt together the bracket between the clamps and cross bars is the only part you’ll need to make, just measure and drill holes.

Bike rack above a retractable tonneau cover

I ended up welding my own rack that fits into the stake pockets I then have Rocky Mounts bike racks mounted to the cross bars. I really love it! Sorry, I can't find a better picture right now. The rack is 1-1/2" square tubing that sits on the box rails lengthwise and has a piece dropping into the stake pocket at each end. There are then 1" square tubing crossbars that have 5" legs and cross the bed with enough clearance to roll up the soft tonneau cover. The cross bars are attached to the rails with locking 1/2" pins. I think the only way to get a bike off of this is with a hack saw or grinder. We took it on our two week vacation to the mountains and loved it!

I mounted a Yakima system over my cover. I carry five bikes on swagman bike trays. I can remove my rack and just leave the tracks which blend in to the bed rail. Click image for larger version

That is what I originally set out to do. But I then realized that the Yakima bars didn't give me enough clearance to roll up my soft cover. That is why I ended up building my own that has crossbars 6" above the bed rails.
