The Ultimate Rack is the answer to all your problems with hauling your ATVs on your short or long bed pick-up. Its "above the bed rail" design allows you to load two machines and still have almost your entire truck bed available for storing your gear. The ATV Rack attaches securely to the inside panels of your truck bed and is easily removable in minutes. The unit includes 10 foot long folding ramps to minimize the loading angle, and when in use they attach right to the rack so they will not fall when loading. The tire pans on the rack are made of diamond plate aluminum so they will always look great and not rust. The Ultimate Rack's full weight rests on the floor of your truck bed, not the rails. This unit has been precisely engineered for lasting strength and stability. What are some of the many features and benefits of the ULTIMATE RACK?

Ultimate Racks are fabricated out of 2-inch tubular steel. The stationary joints are welded. Joints requiring assembly are connected with 1/2-inch, grade-5 bolts and ny-lock nuts. The tire pans are 1/8-inch diamond-plated aluminum. Ramps are constructed of 1x3-inch tubular steel, with rungs of 1x1x1/8-inch angle iron
A fully assembled, short bed rack, without ramps, weighs 261 lbs. The long bed model weighs 268 lbs.
It will take about 30 to 40 minutes to put your rack together. All necessary hardware is provided to you. The rack is assembled using ten 1/2-inch diameter grade-5 nuts and bolts, and four 1/4-inch diameter grade-5 nuts and bolts.
Not Necessarily. But in order to secure your new Ultimate Rack into the bed of your truck, you will need to attach four D-ring and swivel-bracketed plates in the corners of the inside of the truck bed. They are provided in your hardware package and we highly recommend their use. Not all trucks provide the appropriate tie downs for safe and proper installation of the Ultimate Rack. This step takes approximately 30 minutes, and is a one-time procedure. Complete instructions are shipped with the rack.
With the assembled rack standing on end, pick it up by the rear end and, using the tailgate as a fulcrum, slide the rack into the truck bed. (This can easily be done by one person.) Using the four turnbuckles provided, secure the Ultimate Rack to the truck bed.
Yes. The rack is easily installed by one person. However, it is a good idea to have someone with you in case you need assistance. Click here or on image to watch movie. File size is 2.5mb.
Yes. However, minor modifications are needed in order to expose the D-ring and swivel brackets. This can be accomplished by using a 2-inch hole saw or a small handsaw.
The degree of angle varies with the height of your truck bed. If the top of your truck bed is at five feet, the angle of the extended ramps will be 30.67 degrees.
Try to minimize the ramp angle whenever possible. Position your truck so that the rear end is lower than the front. A driveway approach or similar depression works well. With the ramps pinned in place, simply drive your ATV up the ramps onto the rack. Be sure to secure it with a tie-down strap, front and back. ALWAYS wear a helmet when loading or unloading your ATV.
Follow the loading procedure in reverse.
The 10-ft.-long ramps, when folded, store conveniently on the rack platform under the loaded ATVs, leaving the bed of your truck open for storage.
There are four 3/8-inch steel loops, two on the front and two on the rear of the rack. Use tie-down straps to secure the ATVs to these loops. We suggest using extra tie-downs on each ATV, just in case one breaks.
Your truck will handle as if you were carrying a small camper. The weight of the ATVs is transferred through the frame of the rack to the bed of the truck. No part of the Ultimate Rack touches or rests on the bed rails. This allows a more stable ride than you would get with a side-loading carrier, as most side-loading racks rest on and/or attach to the bed rails. The ride and handling will vary depending on the size of your truck. Handling a truck with a loaded rack on it is easier than pulling an ATV trailer; especially on an uphill or downhill grade.
Yes! You won't even know it's there!
Two ATVs of any currently built make or model will fit on the rack side by side. However, it is not designed to carry three-wheeled ATVs.
Not yet. They are currently under design.
No. This rack system has been heavily researched and engineered. Any alterations could compromise the integrity of the rack.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. We will send an e-mail confirmation to you on the date your rack is shipped. You will then be able to track it by the shipper's PRO number. If you would like your rack delivered to your home or office, there will be an additional cost of $85.00 for residential delivery. To order please call our customer service department toll free at 1-888-651-3431 from 9am-5pm Central time Monday thru Friday.
Ultimate Racks are constructed of high quality materials, providing maximum strength and durability. All open ends on the steel tubing have been capped, welded, and ground smooth. This feature insures that no moisture can get inside the steel tubing, so the integrity of the rack will not be compromised. The entire rack has been powder-coated to hold up under the harshest of weather conditions and tolerates heat and moisture much better than paint. Powder-coating gives much longer wear, is chip-resistant, and looks great! The tire pans are a beautiful blend of functionality and appearance. The 1/8-inch diamond-plate aluminum is rust-proof, easy to clean and very durable. All edges have been de-burred for a smooth finish and a superb look. The Ultimate Rack ramps are each ten feet long and constructed of 1x3 inch tubing and 1x1x1/8 inch angle iron. They can easily bear the weight of even the largest of ATVs. After use, the ramps are folded and stored conveniently under the loaded ATVs, leaving the truck bed space available for gear storage. The Ultimate Rack is designed to complement your full-size truck! Whether you drive a short- or long bed pickup, the Ultimate Rack fits! If you have a long bed with a standard size toolbox, the short bed model works, so you can have your tools and your ATVs with you at the same time. The Ultimate Rack rests on the floor of the truck bed, not on the bed rails, providing more stability and evenly-distributed weight. This feature prevents damage to your bed rails. Your ATVs face forward when loaded on an Ultimate Rack. This cuts down on wind resistance and prevents fender damage caused by wind. By having your ATVs facing forward, gas mileage is improved. When loading ATVs from the rear of the truck instead of the side, there is no chance of accidentally driving off the other side. The headache rack helps protect the cab and rear window.
DISCLAIMER : There is an inherent risk involved in the use of ATVs and the loading, unloading, and hauling of these vehicles using any carrier system. Discount Ramps.Com LLC assumes no liability whatsoever for damage or injury incurred during the use of this product. A helmet should be worn during loading and unloading an ATV on our carrier systems.
