Why Choose a Bed Rack?

Enhanced Versatility

While your pickup is already plenty functional, a bed rack can significantly improve its functionality. With high quality off-road bed frames, you can easily mount rooftop tents, kayaks, bikes, rescue equipment, and storage containers. Customization options are virtually limitless, allowing you to tailor your truck to your specific adventure needs. This not only increases your cargo capacity, but also makes every trip more efficient and enjoyable!

Secure Mounting

A solid truck roll bar provides reliable anchor points, ensuring your gear stays securely in place, even on the roughest trails. This security is invaluable when you're far from civilization.

Improved Organization

Turn your truck bed into an organized storage area. Whether you're storing fuel, water, tools or essentials, everything can be neatly organized and easily accessible.

Types of Bed Racks

Low-Profile Racks

Low-profile racks sit close to the top of your truck’s bed rails, offering a sleek, aerodynamic look. They’re perfect for mounting lighter items or creating a solid base for additional cargo. For example, the MELIPRON Low Profile Bed Rack is an excellent option for maintaining a streamlined appearance.

Low-Profile Racks
Mid-Height Racks

Mid-height racks balance clearance and appearance. They can handle taller items while maintaining a sleek profile on your truck, making them versatile for various overlanding setups. The Overland Bed Rack is an ideal accessory for your truck storage.

Mid-Height Racks
Cab-Height Racks

To maximize your cargo-carrying capacity, cab-height racks rise to the same height as your truck's cabin. Perfect for transporting large items or installing a rooftop tent, these racks provide plenty of room for all of your equipment.

Choosing the Right Bed Rack


Truck racks are usually constructed of steel or aluminum. Steel offers exceptional strength but is heavier, while aluminum is lighter and highly resistant to rust. Your choice should be based on your specific needs and the weight you intend to carry.


Make sure the rack design you choose fits the make, model and bed length of your truck. A proper fit will ensure a safe installation and optimal performance. For example, if you drive an F150, look for a F150 Bed Rack specifically designed for your vehicle.

Bearing Capacity

Consider the maximum weight you’ll be carrying and choose a rack with a suitable dynamic (while driving) and static (when parked) load rating. Adhering to these limits ensures safe transportation of your gear.

Essential Features and Accessories


Crossbars provide the main mounting points for your gear. Look for racks with multiple crossbars to maximize flexibility and distribute weight evenly.

Side Rails

Side rails add structural stability and offer additional tie-down points to keep your cargo secure. Some models include integrated slots for easily attaching gear and accessories.

Modular Design

A modular bed rack system allows you to start with a basic setup and customize it as your needs evolve. Add or remove elements like side rails, crossbars, or specialized mounts for gear to suit your requirements.


Most bed racks have a durable powder coat finish that protects them from the elements and ensures longevity. Choose a color that complements the style of your truck.


Popular accessories include mounting brackets, tie-down points, cargo nets, awnings, rooftop tents, and tool mounts.

The Overlanding Advantage

The Overlanding Advantage
More Gear, More Exploration

An overland bed rack expands your cargo space, allowing you to pack essential gear without compromising interior space. Bring along recovery tools, camping equipment, and outdoor toys for epic journeys.

Ultimate Basecamp Setup

Combine your bed rack with a rooftop tent and awning to create a cozy elevated base camp wherever you roam. Enjoy the view from above while being shielded from the elements.

Peace of Mind

Knowing your valuables are well-secured allows you to focus on exploring worry-free. Roll bars for pickups enhance safety and structural integrity during off-road adventures.

The Adventurer’s Aesthetic

A well-equipped roll bar for truck adds a touch of ruggedness and functional charm to your truck. Embrace the overlanding style and express your passion for venturing off the beaten path.
