If you don't plan on taking down your ladder rack once it has been installed, a permanent installation will be ideal for you. Permanent installations are more secure, and may offer greater load bearing capacity and reliability than temporary or quick installation racks. However, they also require drilling and therefore may need to be professionally installed, which generates more expense. Additionally, drilling holes for installation cuts through the truck's painted finish and exposes the metal underneath, making the bed susceptible to rust.
The reason for all these differences is, of course, that people need ladder racks for different reasons. So what ladder rack will fit your needs best? Here are some factors to consider.
