Designed and fabricated in PA; our goal was to design a set of bed bars that work with a tonneau cover and create the strongest most versatile mounting system for our trucks. The thought was to have a universal design to mount anything from RTT’s, bikes, snowboards, skis & surfboards, lights, CB antennas, and more in any fashion the owner wants to.
We created the strongest bed bar mounting system out there that works with a cover. Designed in CAD utilizing finite element analysis.
WHATS INCLUDED (2 bars, 4 brackets, and hardware):
Cross bars are made from 80mmx40mm (3.15” wide x 1.57” tall) 6560-T6 aluminum double wide t-slot rails and anodized black. There are two slots top and bottom and one front and back, for a total of 6 t-slots per cross bar. All the t-slots run the length of the bar, so you can mount anything anywhere. The cross bars utilize drop in t-slot hardware (links below) and supplied by us. Typical t-slot nuts will accommodate an M8-1.25 thread and slide perfectly to any location you need.
Uprights are laser cut from a high strength steel, CNC bent, then TIG welded and powder coated in a durable black wrinkle finish. The uprights mount directly to the Gladiator bed rail system using supplied t-nuts and high strength zinc coated hardware. If the Gladiator does not have a rail system, we have a universal clamping system that will work as well!
All external hardware is high strength stainless steel. There are 4 security bolts (TT40 bit) that hold each cross bar to the upright. Just remove the bolts to the bars and the cover can flip open with the uprights still mounted. These bolts also use stainless aerospace lock washers, so nothings coming loose and no need for Loctite.
**TT40 bits are now included with your Billie purchase**
CURRENT LEAD TIME IS 4-6 WEEKS
Note: If you do not have the Gladiator Track Rail - Our kit will come with the Universal Clamping Brackets
