Black Friday Buyers Guide: Leitner Design Bed Racks and Accessories

October 06, 2021

Leitner Designs Buyers Guide For Black Friday 2021


In 2014, Bernhard Leitner, (the founder of Leitner Designs), decided to take his company in a slightly different direction due to his love for adventure and the outdoors. From that day on, the focus was to be a design firm that was specifically focused on its own line of truck bed racks and accessories. Their first product, the Leitner Designs Active Cargo System, also known as the Leitner ACS Rack, continues to defy odds and is considered by many to be the most versatile bed rack on the market.

Leitner Designs has built a name and huge following for themselves with the Classic Active Cargo System Bed Rack, quickly becoming a staple within the overland community. Thanks to a culmination of 5 years of field testing and thousands of off road hours, the Leitner Designs ACS FORGED Bed Rack was born. Introduced in late 2019, the ACS FORGED carries on the legendary durability modularity and customizability of the original ACS Classic in a sleek new package. Leitner Designs is known for high-quality, minimal lead times, and product functionality.



Alright, so you looked at the chart above, and are still confused on which bed rack to get. Well, here are the basics to consider while making your decision. If you're going to be going through the Baja 500 rally and jumping sand dunes with a fully loaded rack...get the Active Cargo System FORGED! It's stronger and can withstand the rough and tumble terrain in your adventure. If it's simple off road camping with the family, then the Active Cargo System CLASSIC is for you. Don't get me wrong, it's tough, and it can handle just about anything you can throw at it... Except perhaps the Baja 500. Both Leitner Design Bed Racks allow you to secure large items, come standard with a rear sliding load bar, and are  equipped with hardware specifically designed to prevent loosening under extreme vibration.


Top Accessories for your Leitner Designs ACS CLASSIC and FORGED Bed Rack Cargo System...

GearPod Gen 2 and GearPod XL Gen 2

        Leitner-GearPod-Gen-2  Leitner-GearPod-XL-Gen-2

The Leitner GearPod Gen 2 and Leitner GearPod XL Gen 2 were designed to work perfectly with the Active and Forged Cargo Systems. This provides a secure and waterproof container to store your gear, accessories, and really just about anything else that you may need on the trail. Even that plaster cast footprint you think is Bigfoots! The GearPods are locking, and mount directly to the side of the Active and Forged Cargo Systems. By virtue of it mounting along the side, it still allows you to keep the majority of your bed useable. If you are still deciding which Pod best fits your needs, the standard GearPod has a storage capacity of 10.5 gallons, while the GearPod XL has a much larger storage capacity at 40 gallons. Trail tested and designed to withstand any climate you may find yourself in, Leitner Designs’ bed racks and accessories are built for those that demand more from life.
