Need to purchase a 40' ladder. Crew cab short bed will need the hitch extender riser and a roof rack. What is the best cost effective roof rack for the 1500? This is once per year or less needed item. I am thinking just some pipe insulation foam and a cargo strap for the roof. But would be willing to spend upto 100$ for something a little more proper. What do you use or suggest?

I've already ordered the hitch extension and riser that will allow for the ladder to be level with the roof, or convert to bed level for 8-12' lumber in the bed.

imagination and good fab skills will come in handy ,
the square hole in the back of the box for rear post , square tubing with a " U " at top , higher than cab.
put ladder in there ,from the outside , strap to post.
..
and grab a hold of both front tow hooks and front bumper ,to make bottom support for front post ,
