Soft top-ladder rack combo advice

Hey guys!
Wondering if you had any advise on what ladder racks fit best on our trucks. Im Building my truck into an adventure rig of sorts, and want to run the ladder rack/soft top combo with a roof top tent. Just looking for advice on brands and such. Pictures are always appreciated!

Not sure what you mean by a roof top tent?

But I had a ladder rack like the one in the second picture down in this thread: https://www.ranger-forums.com/snapsh...g-rigs-133720/

It was bolted down to bed, but upright posts were outside of bed so I could have a hard canopy or remove it, just slid it in and out.
I am sure a soft top would do fine with that.
Also the overcab adds alot more carrying capacity

I'm guessing he meant something like this by roof top tent. And for the most part they will all fit, just depends on how many persons you want/need to fit. They have universal mounting to most roof racks or toppers etc.




here are a few sites..nothing real cheap though. But you could maybe get crafty and make one or mix and match to make your own combo.

these are just the tents. so you could get any topper or soft topper and mount it to a rack on top of it

I can see no end of problems with that setup if you're a drinker, lol.

Or when you're half asleep and head out for the morning pee..............ahhhhhhhhh..splat..then you **** yourself either laughing or crying, lol.

I guess snakes or large critters would be the reason for that setup.
