Kelowna BC Truck Racks for Work, Play, and Overlanding

No matter what you need your truck rack for: work, play, overlanding, or even just the good looks; Rack Attack is your local Kelowna Truck Rack Specialist

Let’s be perfectly clear: Rack Attack is not a dedicated truck accessory store. We stock and sell a fair amount of truck accessories, but we have “Rack” in our name for a reason. From our first day in business (over 20 years ago in Vancouver!) Rack Attack has focused almost exclusively on racks. If you’re looking for a lift and some 36’s we’re not the spot. But if you need a roof rack, truck rack, tonneau cover, headache rack, running boards, or seat covers, Rack Attack simply can’t be beat!

We install everything we sell and guarantee our work for as long as you own your vehicle. 

When it comes to truck racks there are a wide variety of types and options. What you need is going to depend on a combination of the truck you’re driving and what you’re looking to put on it. The list below highlights some of our most popular truck racks. For a solution specific to your needs just give our Kelowna location a call or drop by:

Note about Tonneau Covers: Some of the racks below will work with an installed Tonneau cover. It’s important to understand these racks only work with specific Tonneau covers with a bed-rail slot or groove, such as the ReTrax XR (sold and installed by Rack Attack as well). If you have any questions call our store for more details on compatibility.

Yakima OutPost HD

Designed to handle heavy loads on backcountry terrain, the OutPost HD is built for rugged overland adventures. The mid-height design provides a low center of gravity, easy accessibility to gear, and the perfect platform for the SkyRise rooftop tent.

The OutPost HD by Yakima is possibly the best overlanding rack you can put on your truck. With a fixed height of 13” it’s been designed perfectly for mounting a roof top tent without obstructing the view from your rear window, and still allowing you access into your box. The rack includes multiple heavy duty tie down locations for securing your loads.

Yakima has chosen to sell the OutPost separately from the HD cross bars required to complete the rack. This allows you to choose longer bars if you so desire, giving you more space for mounting additional items, such as awnings. 

Best of all, the rack itself looks fantastic. Therefore, it’s the rack one of our favorite employees has chosen for his personal 2019 Ford Ranger.

  • Weight Limit: 500lbs (300lbs offroad)

Yakima OverHaul HD

For weekend adventures and hardworking weekdays, the OverHaul HD adjustable truck rack brings best-in-class payload and unmatched versatility. Leveraging HD Bars for a 500lb on-road carrying capacity, paired with 300lb off-road rating.

The OverHaul HD is essentially the same as the OutPost HD, only the rack has some height adjustment. The OverHaul can be adjusted from 19” to 30” giving you more versatility on your carrying configuration and options. One note: The OverHaul’s height adjustment is done by loosening screws and manually adjusting the height. While it’s a quick and easy process without a heavy load on the bars, it’s not really made to be adjusted while carrying something heavy. 

The rack includes the same tie down locations as the OutPost and comes separately from the HD cross bars giving you the perfect fit for your needs. If you need a more versatile truck rack, or just want more height than the OutPost, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more functional and beautiful rack than the OverHaul.

Thule’s Xsporter Pro (500XTB/500XTS) is the premier truck rack for those wanting height adjustment. Adjusting the height of your bars requires no tools: just spin the knobs on the inside of the rack.

The cross bars are 71” long giving you plenty of room for your gear. Because the Xsporter lowers by dropping the uprights into the inside of your box this rack can not be used with any Tonneau cover.

Thule's TracOne is a one size fits all truck rack. Constructed of the same high quality materials as our more advanced racks, the TracOne is the perfect rack for those occasions when you need to carry long items that just won't fit.

The little brother to the SR, this rack gives you the quality and durability of the TracRac SR, but at a much lower cost. This truck rack mounts directly to the box requiring no base rails. While this does prohibit you from adjusting the spread of your two bars, it greatly reduces the cost of the complete rack system. 

The TracOne weighs just 50lbs, is made from the same high grade aluminum, and can carry a whopping 800lbs.

The Others
