Other than UpTop Overland, is anyone aware of any manufacturers that make a full aluminium bed rack?

My truck is a daily driver and 90% of the time, I have the bed rack in place, but from time to time to load things into the truck bed, I have to remove it and the weight of a steel rack is a little cumbersome. I also have a garage ceiling lift that picks up my RTT and, ideally, if the bed rack can stay mounted and store in the ceiling, that would make things a whole lot easier.

KB Voodoo, or their bed rack company Max Modular makes a couple aluminum bed racks.

Sweet. Got any photos of your setup? What height did you get?

Not yet. Its currently assembled in my living room as I piece it together. I put on a KB Voodoo cargo tray and I'm shopping for a fire extinguisher mount and jerry can mount or two. I'm debating whether I want to mount recovery boards to the side as well.

I went with the 10" rack because I want it to stay below the roof line when empty. I haven't used it yet to really have an opinion on whether that was a good choice.

We are also looking for a similar set-up and we would like to keep a tonneau on it as well. Subscribed.

I finally installed my bedrack and got pictures. Its a KB Voodoo/Max-modular aluminum tacomax 10" with tonneau brackets. The tonneau brackets and the piece that bolts to them are steel, everything else is aluminum. The bedrack is 10", plus 2" for the tonneau bracket and the cargo basket is 4". The total height is 16" which keeps it just below the roofline of the truck when empty.

I think that combo of parts is at least $1200+, being conservative in the estimate. It’s hard to beat UpTop’s price for a full aluminum bed rack when they’re right under $900.
