For years, people have been asking for a Bed Rack capable of working with a Tonneau Cover. Leitner Designs has made the Tonneau Bed Rack a reality with thier Leitner Designs Active Cargo System FORGED - Tonneau Bed Rack for the 1997+ Ford F150.
The 1997+ Ford F150 ACS FORGED Tonneau Bed Rack is the perfect option for those that no longer want to be forced to choose between a Bed Cover or a Bed Rack - you can now have both. The ACS FORGED Tonneau Bed Rack for the 1997+ Ford F150 is designed to work with Bed Covers that utilize a T-Slot rail. Some of the more common Tonneau Covers that will work include the ReTrax Powertrax PRO XR, ReTrax XR Series or the Pace Edwards UltraGroove and Explorer Series Covers. If you have a Tonneau Cover that does not feature a T-Slot design on the rails that attach to the bed caps of your 1997+ Ford F150 then the ACS FORGED Tonneau will not fit.
The team at Leitner Designs strongly recommends pairing the F150 ACS FORGED Tonneau Rack with a powered bed cover like the Retrax Powertrax Pro XR or the UltraGroove Electric Cover from Pace Edwards. The reason why you would want to utilize a powered cover over one that you would open manually is that traditionally you would grab the handle and walk along the side of your bed as you pushed your retractable cover open. If your ACS FORGED Tonneau Bed Rack is loaded down with accessories you would not be able to do this and end up loosing some of the functionality of your tonneau cover. With the powered option you simply open or close the cover with a push of a button.
The ACS FORGED Tonneau provides the durability you expect from Leitner Designs as well as the legacy Leitner Accessories that you simply cannot get anywhere else such as: the Leitner GearPOD, Leitner GearPOD DUAL, Leitner GearPod XL, Leitner Universal Mounting Plates, and much more. The Leitner Designs FORGED Tonneau for the 1997+ Ford F150 is the culmination of years of design, thousands of hours in the field, and listening to those within the overland/offroad community.
The ACS FORGED Tonneau will not have the typical rear sliding load bar found on both the ACS Classic and ACS FORGED Racks from Leitner Designs. The rear load bar will be in a fixed position on the ACS FORGEDTonneau. Truck Brigade is the leading source for Leinter Designs products offering free shipping and the best prices out there.
