I choose this Tuwa rack because it is compatible with tonneau cover. However it has little interference with my cover so I have to cut my cover rail to install it. It was so much job. In addition, for the roof top tent, it is not working with general rooftop mount because rack top portion is so wide. I have to made my own eight 90 degree custom bracket to secure my rooftop tent. Cutting and make hole on steel is not fun. And side bar install position is too low. Sidebar height is not adjustable. When I hang something like gas can or water container, it has interference with my truck body. Lastly, side bar hole doesn't much compatible with offroad stuff. I drilled sidebar for hang traction board. This rack looks good it self but nothing work without modification.

FInally ordered one after looking at them for over a month and going back and forth between Tuwa and competitors. Once I made the decision my order was shipped fast, to my door within 2 days. Took me a little longer to install then needed but man the tolerances are TIGHT with the powder coating. After getting everything on my truck and how I want it I put it through some testing. Shaking the hell out of it, hanging my workout sandbags off the cross members to see if they sag, they don't, and just throwing my bikes and kayak on there. It is a damn solid piece of equipment, well built and fairly priced. Now I just need to find all the accessories I want and get it fully outfitted. Thanks for making a great product and answering all my questions when I asked them. If I ever need to order another rack you can count on it being a Tuwa.
