This is my first purchase for building out my daily driver into our adventure rig. We are planning a trip to northern NM and southern CO, later this year so the process of getting our vehicle ready has begun. I'm very happy with this rack. It is rigid and strong but lightweight at the same time. It is made from extruded aluminum planks and is powder-coated. Fasteners slide into the grooves, which makes adding on lighting, rubber grabbers, roof racks, sun-shades...whatever you choose a simple task. All the fasteners had red loc-tite pre-treatment. I think this rack is going to be a great foundation for getting my truck ready. I got to visit the manufacturer while installing mine. The aluminum planks have a structural lattice type of thing going on when you view a cross-section of it. It looked to be 80% solid material when you factor in the groves along the outside of the material, other than that, there is an x shaped void in the center and I was told that the void can be tapped with an air chuck and used to store compressed air, although I don't think there is much volume. Maybe CO2 would be a better option, if the material can handle the pressures? Anyway, I'm working on ordering some lighting for it now. Can't wait to get it outfitted!
