Beaches and loading docks are busy - it’s hard enough to find one parking space in the crowded parking lot, let alone two.

Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as BAK, Dee Zee, Access, BackRack, TracRac, Paramount, Thule, Yakima, Westin, Pilot, Smittybilt the Truck Bed Racks we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.
A bed rack is a structure that sits on the frame of your truck bed similar to the way a rail would. They’re generally made of aluminum so that they can withstand harsh weather. They can come in different sizes so that you can get a little or a lot of extra storage for your truck, depending on your own individual needs. You’ll need to invest in some tie-downs and work on your knot-making skills once you get one of these, but once you learn how to work with it, you’ll find that you use it a lot, at least in the summer months.
Because the bed rack is exposed to the weather all the time, both the rack itself and your vehicle may start to show signs of rust if you simply install the rack and never look at it again. To extend the life of both the rack and the body of their truck, some people choose to only use the rack when the weather is good and change it for a cap during the winter months. However, some people like construction workers don’t have that luxury so they may have to sand, paint, and seal theirs from time to time.
Since the bed rack sits on top of the frame of the bed, it’s important that you make sure it’s installed properly for your own safety as well as that of anyone that drives on the same roads as you. If the rack isn’t secured to the frame, someone could get seriously injured. If the rack can hold your weight, you should be good to go. If you’ve never installed a bed rack before or you’re worried about not being able to do it properly, you should take it to your mechanic. It shouldn’t cost you much to have them install it and you’ll have peace of mind which is priceless.

The rack is a unwieldy beast to handle during assembly. For those with little mechanical history it might prove overwhelming. The instructions are wholly inadequate. They are devoid of helpful suggestions and don't effectively dictate which hardware goes to which connection point, for the one who is high functioning in mechanical aptitude these problems are overcome by simply throwing the lousy instructions in the trash.
