The rack consists of 2 laser cut side rails constructed of 1/4" 5052 aluminum plate. These rails have mounting tabs on each side that will allow you to bolt the rack into the factory mounting holes and one plusnut (REQUIRES DRILLING) on each side of the roof.
Because there is no factory mounting point near the front of the vehicle you will need to drill (1) hole per side and install a plus nut to serve as an anchor for the rack. The plusnut installation is straightforward and does not require removal of the headliner.
The crossbars are made from a 1" x 2" aluminum extrusion that have 2 top facing T-slot channel, a fore and aft channel and 2 bottom facing channels. 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 in a black powdercoat and black anodized crossbars. All assembly hardware comes in a black zinc finish so as to match a black paint or powdercoat finish on the final product. All mounting hardware is either stainless steel or high quality zinc plated. 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 9 cross bars for cargo and 1 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.
* THIS ROOF RACK REQUIRES DRILLING INTO THE FACTORY ROOF FOR INSTALLATION OF NUT CERTS.
