What Makes Up a TRUKD Bed Rack?
TRUKD Bed Racks are made up of a few key, modular components, check them out below:
Customize your truck with your pick of one of our 3 sizes of the strongest uprights available. Other companies use weak 2 dimensional bends and welded on splines. Our uprights are made of a single piece of 10 guage steel with structural geometry, they allow for adjustment up and down every 2" and come in 6.5",12.5", and 18.5" heights.
Customize your rack by choosing the bar bracket to fit your needs, riser brackets or standard brackets. These brackets can be fitted to any of our uprights so you can design a system that works for your needs. Add multiple brackets/bars per upright in order to create multiple levels of storage.
TRUKD is based in Pittsburgh, PA so we know the importance of a good coating due to all the salt and winter weather we see. We use the best coating process for our steel parts called E-coat. E-coat is a dip process that uses electrolysis to get in all of the hard to reach spots and completely seal the part from salt/moisture. To take it up to the next level, we powder coat over the top of the e-coat to provide a good looking durable finish.
Functional tie downs and swappability for future accessories is why every TRUKD bed rack comes with a set of aluminum faceplates. These faceplates are as functional as they are good lookin. Attach your kayak paddles, the end of your 180 or 270 degree awning, or any other gear. Keep an eye on these because we have big plans for them in the future...color matching coming soon!
Other accessory panels are designed with functionality in mind above all else, but we know that your panels aren't always totally kitted out and we believe that they should look good naked. Other accessory panels lock the uprights to a specific location, our system allows adjustment forward and back making your fit just right.
Our team's mission is to get you set up in a way that is most useful on the trail or at Home Depot. When you are setting up your system contact us to help you determine what will work best for your rack/cover needs.
With the 24.5" system we offer the first trifold compatible system for trucks with 5.5' or less beds, Diamondback Covers, and SoftTopper and Bestop soft bed caps as well?
Most other companies that sell tonneau compatible bed racks have a small list of compatible covers and those that are "compatible" won't necessarily open and close with the rack installed. Those that will open/close with the other guys' are $2000 roll up covers that take up valuable bed space.
