Pickup Truck Ladder Racks and other Contractor Accessories @

Ladder racks are steel or aluminum structures that mount in your truck bed & help organize your storage area when using your truck for long, large loads, like ladders, lumber, pipe or even canoes. There are a few different styles available. "Over The Cab" racks mount using four legs at the corners of your pickup truck bed or could also mount on top of your bed. "Quick Pack", also referred to as "Weekenders", have two legs and mount on one side of your bed.

Let's examine the KargoMaster racks available from

The Pro III "Over The Cab" Truck Rack is designed with adjustable front legs that allow the rack to fit trucks with long or short bed. KargoMaster's Pro III Truck Rack is available for full size and compact pick up trucks. The rack is built with 1-5/8" diameter round steel tubes with a wall thickness of .083”, which offers a 1,000 lb. loading capacity. Its sleek round tube design significantly reduces wind drag and noise and provides uniform load distribution that results in a sturdier rack . All Kargo Master truck racks are treated with zinc primer and marine grade powder coat to achieve excellent corrosion and UV resistance. Kargo Master features 5" swagged joints and gusseted cross bars for increased durability and strength. Full 17" long pre-drilled foot plates ensure the cargo rack is securely fastened to your truck bed. The Pro III includes yellow zinc dichromate finished hardware that resists corrosion. Convenient T-Bolts are also included to minimize the need to drill your truck bed. The rear bar is designed to be removed without any tools to allow clearance for storing large objects or cargo. Rigid side channel rails are designed with a handy grab that loops at the back of the truck. The Kargo Master Pro III Series Truck Rack is a high quality rack that comes with a reasonable price tag.

The KargoMaster "Quick Pack" rack makes it easy to carry your load without detracting from the appearance of your rig. The rugged 1 1/2″ square steel tube uprights are easily removed in seconds from the upright supports that remain permanently in place out of sight below the truck bed rails. The Quick Pack Ladder Rack is perfect for carrying ladders, kyacks, lumber and other light-weight rigid cargo.
*NOTE: KargoMaster's Pro III and Quick Pack racks will not fit step side trucks.
