I'm another one looking for a taller rack, I have a Diamondback tonneau cover and I want something to get my batwing awning mounted up. So far these are the only ones that look like they will work without having to drill into the cover. Can't wait to see what you guys have in the works.

Hey Guys! We're a relatively new sponsor (3 months) to the forum. We're super pumped about the Gladiator customers we have now, and we wanted to share our products- if you've heard of us, great. If not, check us out! We appreciate the support and are excited to be part of this community!

We developed BillieBars as an off road solution for people who were looking for really strong, durable bed bars that are compatible with most tonneau covers. Our static load capability is 1000 #'s - and the best part is installation is achievable by one person in about 20 minutes.

Some of the details of the BillieBars:

  • RTV in the nooks of the brackets where where water could potentially build up and lead to rust
    • also makes for an awesome "flush feeling" when you drop the bars into the brackets
  • Helicoil inserts on the bars, so the threads wont wear out when you take the bars on and off
  • Total weight of the system is 46 lbs
  • Universal clamping system available if your Gladiator does not have a track system
  • Anodized aluminum bars that will never rust
  • 3 year warranty on the powder coated steel brackets
  • Molle panel accessory allowing for mounting of recovery boards, high lift jacks, gear bags, rotopax, and more
  • INCREDIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE
Feel free to email us with any questions - [email protected]

-Bill and Nate

For me, I think those roto packs hanging down like that "looks" regodamndiculous, but it is a nice for a hi lift etc.

We hear you loud and clear -we have a design for this but haven't rolled it out yet. Out of curiosity, what kind of load capability would you require? Thanks!
Also in need of a solution for my kayaks. I would like to hold 2, they weigh about 75lbs each.

Add me to the list of people looking for this type of rack. Would love a simple bolt on system that had different height options using the same base. Weight capacity doesn't need to be extreme on the taller racks. Since the truxedo elevate was pulled from the market I'm not aware of any height adjustable racks that work well with a variety of tonneau covers.

I just want to be able to haul my kayaks/canoe, maybe even the occasional long piece of lumber and keep stuff in my bed dry too.

@BillieBars: is it possible to just use the crossbar material vertically within the same brackets? Like this:

You would have to work the soft tonneau around the vertical bars, but it might work without any redesign. Perhaps a bracket that utilizes the same two bolts and slip outs into the t-slot channel. Then a horizontal plate (molle-style even) to tie the two verticals together. Another bracket similar to the bottom to tie in the crossbars.

Just a thought.

Love the idea you can use your factory cover with this. How about two models, one low like this, and one slightly higher than the roof and strong enough for a rooftop tent. Or combine the two for an extra layer of storage above the row up cover and your tent on top!!!

I've been debating a bed rack to haul a 1up rack and roam box. Considered the KBVoodoo but you guys seem to have a better product and I'm pro PA, so I'm ready to give it try. Appreciate the forum discount, looking forward to meeting you at pick up in a few weeks.
