Ford F-150 Truck Bed Rack Guide
Product Recommendations for Adventurous F150 Owners
The strongest truck bars for the Ford F150.
BillieBars were created out of necessity. Our founder, Bill, was tired of buying expensive bed racks that were poor quality, difficult to install, and often times couldn't hold the gear he needed them to. Bill decided to make it his mission to create bed bars that could actually get the job done. The result: BillieBars!
The Original BillieBars
It all starts here. If you’re looking for a Ford F150, F250, F350 or Raptor bed rack that’s tonneau cover compatible, you’ve come to the right place. We designed the BillieBars to work with Ford Trucks, clamping to the inner bed lip of your bed rails (all hardware and clamps provided). Perfect for camping, overlanding, kayaking, fishing, biking and more!
F150 MOLLE Panels
Having a set of bed bars for your precious F150 wasn’t enough, so we added side MOLLE panels to the fold. These are great for mounting recovery boards, high lift jacks, shovels, axes, and more. We offer 2 different style molle panels, are small and mid height, depending on what style you prefer!
F150 Tailgate Cover
The F150 Tailgate Cover
About 2 years after founding BillieBars, Bill had the idea to make tailgate covers with the BillieBars spin (durable, simple, American made, and easy to install) replacing the hard plastic existing OEM tailgate cover. Using a CNCd aluminum panel, and covered with marine grade foam, the BillieBars F150 Tailgate is integated with recessed cup holders. Now you can kneel with comfort when reaching into your bed, and have a place for your drink too!
Roof Top Tent Options and Solutions for your F150
One of the most-used functions of BillieBars F150 bed racks is for Roof Top Tents ("RTT"). For the F150, putting a RTT directly on the bars will keep the tent in profile with the truck (that is, the tent won’t poke up over the cab), which could help your gas mileage. If you need more room under your RTT, the Tent Riser Kit will give you better access and rear window visibility - with the tradeoff that your RTT will poke over the cab. It’s a matter of choice! BillieBars are ideal for hard shell, soft shell, and pop-up RTT’s.
