RCI Off Road 12″ HD Bed Rack


The RCI 12″ Heavy Duty Bed Rack is a best selling rack and carries the same features and benefits as custom fit racks, but with the added flexibility of being able to mount to ANY truck bed ranging from a Chevy Colorado to a Dodge 3500. Best of all, this bed rack does it all without sacrificing strength or added weight! In fact the  adjustable 12″ bed rack has been so popular that the custom fit racks has to be replaced by this model. You simply choose one of three bed length options, and the width is fully adjustable to match your specific truck. This rack saves space and organizes your truck bed by allowing all of your gear to be securely mounted with easy accessibility. Designed to accept roof top tents and other heavy gear while keeping your truck bed wide open and accessible.


  • Mount anything from lights, Hi-lift, co2, fire extinguisher, quick-fist, roto-pax, spare tire, roof top tent, etc
  • This is an HD model, utilizing three cross-members spanning the truck bed, this rack is has the highest weight capacity and provides even weight distribution on the trucks bed side rails
  • Built in mounting points allow unlimited options for adding accessories
  • Bolts to inside of bed rails or can alternatively be mounted with optional “drill-free” clamps to mount like a truck topper (Not applicable when bolting to accessory rail systems)
  • Rack is 12″ tall from bed rail to top of rack
  • Adjustable width adapts to any truck bed from 54″ – 64″ width between the bed rails
  • Three length options to fit any application from 5′ beds to 6’+
  • Maintains very good visibility through the back window despite the low overall rack height
  • Using this rack will minimize the aerodynamic drag normally associated with roof top tents by keeping it largely below the roof-line
  • Slotted mounting points on top of rack accept nearly any roof top tent making mounting a breeze
  • Includes TWO top braces, for unlimited accessory and tent mounting options
  • Heavy duty black textured powdercoat finish comes standard, plus all racks are coated with an epoxy primer. This extra step is expensive and time consuming but ensures that the paint job will outlast anything else in the industry!
  • Easy bolt together assembly, takes about 45 minutes to install with only a few basic hand tools
  • All hardware for installation is included
  • Made in USA

This is simply a guideline, as always use your best judgement on safety when heavily loading the rack.

    Nice rack!

    The rack is really cool and easy to assemble. Takes a little time to assemble but the quality of the rack makes it easy. The best part about my experience is the customer service at Roof Top Overland! I had some questions and an issue and they were so quick and thorough in resolving them. Thanks!

    Rci 12" adjustable bed rack

    Installed on a 2016 f150 with 5.5ft bed. I selected the rack recommended for a 5.5ft bed. Im very happy with the product. Using the no drill C clamp installation and this thing is rock solid! Currently have a 4 person rooftop tent mounted on the rci rack and it fits flawlessly. I really wish they would have included printed directions with the product.

    Your truck looks great! The Alpha tent sits nicely behind the cab with the 12" RCI bed rack, and gives you plenty of room in the bed for more gear. The dogs seem impressed too. Enjoy your travels!

    Splendid, just as title says. Got it to me just on time for my cross country road trip, and it’s held up fantastic over all the trails and crawling i’ve done!

    RCI Rack Looks Great!

    This being my first rack install I was looking for it to be super hard and crazy. It was neither, installation of the rack probably took 1.5 hrs and install onto the truck with minor placement move around another 35 minutes. It would've been faster but I have very large hands that don't work well in tight places. It fit and looks great on my Ram 1500, just waiting for the RTT to get here and I'll be adventure ready. On a side note, the instructions were a little too simplified, could definitely use 1-2 more pictures. It all worked out fine so I'm very happy.

    Great to hear your rack was installed with ease! We'll share your comments about the insructions with the manufacturer.

    Do you really want to know how I feel about it?

    I hate nothing, absolutely nothing at all. As the Mayte of fact I think that this rack exceeds any expectations. Even without the instructions I was able to figure it out. I’m simply obsessed with this rack and it’s not even mine


    Roof Top Overland

    Yours or not, we like the positive feedback! Yes, this rack is the perfect solution for most truck beds in need of some more functionality.

    Phenomenal customer service

    Originally gave 3 out of 5 stars due to the fabrication of the material not fitting as described and the cross beams being the same size as pillars they are supposed to easily slide over.. contacted their customer service and they quickly responded and made contact to RCI on my behalf and the issue with my rack was due to an error and delay with one of their metal fabrication machines breaking. Anyways, they got back to me in a couple days, I sent pictures of the issue I had and they immediately sent me the correct fitting product and received it within a week. Will definitely buy from rooftop overland again in the future.

    RCI rack!!

    I love this rack. It’s sitting on my 2018 Silverado right now. It’s got the roof top tent on top tracktion board on one side and shovel and axe on the other. I got the drill free option and went with the clamps and it might as well be drilled into my bed cause this rack isn’t moving! Planning to mount a few more items on it. It’s amazing light weight and ver adjustable

    There were a few spots where the Powdercoat was chipped and sections were starting to rust so I had to add paint in spots after cleaning to prevent the rusting from getting worse.

    We are sorry to hear your rack was chipped. A member from our customer service team will be reaching out to you soon.
