The rack consists of 2 laser cut side rails constructed of 3/16" 5052 aluminum plate. These rails have 3 mounting platforms each that will allow you to bolt the rack into 12 rivet nut plus nuts that you will install. The 6 plusnuts on each side of the roof provide a secure mounting system for the rack. This rack will require you to drill 6 holes in each of the 2 channels on the roof top. The crossbars are made from a aluminum extrusion that has a top facing T-slot channel. This offers numerous solutions for tie down options, cargo security, and the addition of accessories such as tool mounts or lighting. The rack comes shipped with a powdercoated finish. All assembly hardware is provided. The rack also includes a 1/8" 5052 aluminum plate wind deflector to help with aeroodynamics and prevent wind noise.
The rack is completely modular in that you choose how your rack is configured. Refer to the gallery for an example of standard configurations we have used based on different load sizes and weights. You can also choose the number of cross bars you assemble your rack with. The rack comes standard with 5 cross bars for cargo and 2 additional for mounting of a wind deflector, lightbar or combination of the two.
Weight capacity of the racks varies based on the number of crossbars used and their configuration. We expect all consumers to use good judgement and common sense with the loads they plan to carry using these rack systems.
