The Mesa bed rack helps offset the awkward look of the gladiator box overhang behind rear axel. Looks great and works well with Bak Revolver after a bit of tweeking. Need some instructions, most of install time spent figuring things out and where to start and which bolt types go where.
Hello Arnold, thank you so much for your comment, your feedback really matters to us. Welcome to the family and be wild!
I'll first state the quality for the price is good. A few rust spots are beginning to pop through powder coat, but I'll sand and prime as they pop up. My biggest complaint is the crossbar height. Its advertised as above cab height, but its actually flush. I need crossbars above cab so I can carry my canoe and SUPs. For now, I had to bolt 2x4's to cross rails. If I had known they were not adjustable above cab height, I wouldn't have ordered them. They would be probably the only rack on the market if they were. Here's a big plus; customer service is excellent. My rack was damaged when delivered. Both cross bars were bent on the ends from being dropped, and the powder coat was cracked. The packaging looked undamaged, so I suspected it was dropped before packaging. Customer service sent a new rack. Again, the ends of cross bars were bent, but minor and I straightened them with vise grips. Second, installation is very tedious. It seemed that there were 10,000 nuts, washers and bolts, and they aren't all easy to reach. Overall its a good product for the price if you need a rack just for RTT. If I had it to do over, I'd get Thule or Yakima racks to fit my needs.
