Bed Racks For Your Ute
If you own a ute and you want to properly equip it to transport gear, items, roof top tents, or other things, then you will want to get the proper bed rack.
There are many different models or types, you have the classic load bed bars, which are crossbars for the bed of your pickup truck. These can sit low, or at a medium height, and they generally attach or sit to the sides of the bed.
Another option is the classic bed platform, just like the Front Runner Outfitters Slimline II Bed Racks. These are essentially a platform rack, but for the bed of your pick-up, and they tend to sit low. This way mounting any type of gear or item is quite easy. Just keep in mind it can block visibility.
Then you have the taller bed rack systems, which sit much higher, and tent to be at the same height as the roof of your pick up or Ute. Despite them being higher and slightly harder to mount things on them due to the height, then don't block visibility, you can still carry things below them on the truck bed, and they tend to be more customizable.
Just like with any other form of rack, you need to make sure that whatever bed rack system you choose, fits nicely on your vehicle, as well as having the right load rating to carry what you need.
If you're a tradie, contractor, surfer or camper, you'll want to check the load ratings, dynamic and static, to ensure that whatever you're carrying can be handled by the bed rack system you choose for your Ute.
