Truck Bed Rack for Rooftop Tent

Tuff Stuff Overland Bed Rack Overview

The Tuff Stuff Overland Truck Bed Rack is a simple and economical solution for mounting your rooftop tent. Designed to universally install directly on top of any truck bed rail using the provided pinch plates, this bed rack offers convenience and versatility.

Rack Options for Short or Long Bed Trucks

It comes in two sizes, 40" and 51", and does not require drilling holes into the bed rails. However, please note that it will not fit if there has been a tonneau cover or any other accessories installed that affect the inner walls of the bed rails. The rack features a unique sliding center rail, allowing it to be installed on various widths of beds, from full-size Ford F350's to mid-size Toyota's. For Toyota's with the factory-installed cargo rail system, custom T-nuts that can accept 3/8" diameter bolts are available as an add-on.

Important Notes:

Annex Rooms - Since this rack was designed to be a lightweight, mid-height rack, you will need to be cautious if using an annex room with your tent. Reason, our annex room requires 76"-79" of height to let their luscious locks out properly. So unless you have a lifted truck you better take some measurements before pulling the trigger on this riteous rack.

Awnings - You know what a Muffin Top is? That's how your tent will fit on your rack. Your rack will be light and tight within the footprint of your tent so there will not be any room for an awning without modifications.

Existing Tonneau - Our bed rack WILL NOT FIT if you have a tonneau cover, or any other accessories installed that affect the inner walls of the bed rails.

Ford Raptor Bed - 1st generation Ford Raptor beds have no lip to attach the rack, so you will have to use nut inserts, self-drilling screws, or anchors to install the rack on the bed.

Tuff Stuff Overland Truck Bed Install Instructions

  1. Remove the two (2) sides from the packing and the two (3) crossbars.
  2. Place the crossbars into the tubes on both sides of the side brackets, do not lock in place.
  3. Have someone help you place them on your bedsides.
  4. Provided are the "Lock-in Place" brackets that will squeeze the sides to the bed.
    1. Toyota's use the factory-installed racks and we have T-Nuts that can be purchased separately to install on Toyota’s.
  5. Once you have adjusted the sides to the cross brackets lock the nuts down for the cross brackets and tighten the sides.

Tuff Stuff Overland Truck Bed Rack Q & A

Can this fit onto any truck?

Yes, this is a universal mounting system. We say yes as in yes for any reasonably sized truck. If you have a freakishly small "truck" bed, you know the ones, then no, no it will not fit.

Which Tuff Stuff Overland tents can be used with this rack?

The Elite, Alpha, and Stealth tents will properly fit with this tent. Any other brand tents that are 51" or longer will also mount. Keep in mind, you need all 3 bars supporting the bottom of the tent. 

What can I place on top of these crossbars?

They are designed for a Roof Top Tent but you can pretty much mount anything to the top of this rack. Things like lumber, piping, etc.

Can we mount other accessories to the mount?

Absolutely, you can mount sand tracks, farm jacks, RotopaX cans, shovels to the side, and just about anything you need to take on the offroad adventure. That is except for awnings, not enough clearance or height where you'd want to install it.

Can I use my tonneau cover and my tent rack at the same time?

No, life is full of hard choices, you have to pick one or the other.

Yes!  Make sure to select the 40" option.
