*This rack has been unofficially tested in-house to support as much as 1500lbs static load but depending on factors such as bed width, truck model, ect. we recommend approximately 750lbs as a benchmark for static capacity (weight on rack when parked / sleeping in tent etc). This is simply a guideline, as always use your best judgement on safety when heavily loading the rack.

  1. Tara

    I installed this, used on my 21 Taco 2.5 yrs ago with my RTT & accessories mounted. It’s very heavy duty. Doesn’t budge at all. I feel very safe mounting all my gear to it.

    It did begin to rust. It is steel. After sanding, hitting it up with rust reformer, primer and bed liner she looks even better!! Highly recommend.

    Very well constructed and straight forward to assemble. It is a solid and useful rack that will probably outlive the 30 year old truck it is attached to, which was also straight forward and sturdy. Love this rack1

  3. Richard

    I love it. It’s on a 2002 first Gen Tacoma. My only question is if I could install a soft top camper under it?

  4. Chris A,

    Mounted on my 2020 F150 and it’s outstanding. Height is PERFECT to mount a clamshell style RTT. Front edge of the tent clears the back of the cab with just enough room to spare. Just buy it! You know you wanna!

    Super sturdy rack! I originally put it on a 1999 dodge ram 1500 and transferred it to a brand new truck with no problems. The height is really nice on it, and the build is so solid that it basically becomes a part of the truck without drilling any holes. The build quality is amazing and the black coat on it can take a heck of a beating. Looks great and it super functional, I recommend this rack to all of my friends.

    So far, I am very impressed. It seems incredibly sturdy and well built. There’s so many things good to say about the 18” rack. First of all, it’s 18 inches. So many racks I see are two damn low. Second, it fits my ‘14 Ford F-150 6.5 ft bed… WITHOUT DRILLING HOLES. The welds are clean and the material is rock solid. I love it. Well worth the wait. Thank you.

  7. Steve Olbert

    Absolutely love the 18” adjustable rack for my 2021 tundra. Easy to install and really sturdy as my tent and accessories are heavy. DISCLAIMER: if you want the ladder on your rooftop tent to be off the side of your pickup you will need the second top brace. Delivered ahead of schedule and well protected in box. Thank you RCI for an awesome product.
