MADE IN AMERICA
Our racks are made entirely of USA sourced materials and assembled in the Rockies.
We take great pride in supporting our local economy as we believe some of the best products are made right here in our backyard. We are always looking for new ways to reduce our footprint and this is just the first step.
We believe in providing the best possible customer experience. If you ever have any questions about one of our products or how to install it, please feel free to reach out to a member of our team. We are more than happy to guide you through this process.
MOUNTING — The roof rack mounts into the OEM roof holes with four 1/4” thick aluminum brackets. Rubber is used to form a seal between the mounting brackets and the roof gutter**. Our rack sits 2 inches off of the roof of the vehicle. This height is the perfect balance of keeping your weight as low as possible while still making it easy to mount things to the rack.
CROSSBARS — The rack itself features 10 aluminum extrusion crossbars that can be adjusted forwards and back. When you combine the adjustability of the bars with the versatility of the t-slot channel built into each cross bar, it makes for an endless number of ways to mount your gear.
HAND HOLDS — Built into the side plate of each rack are hand holds that make getting to the gear on your roof a breeze.
TIE DOWNS — More important than just getting to you gear is securing it. The built in anchor points can be used to quickly secure things to the roof without hassle of hard mounting.
FAIRING — The front fairing includes options for mounting a single row light bar or you can go with the full-size fairing if you wanna keep it simple. The fairing can be adjusted to varying heights, ensuring proper fitment on each vehicle. Fairings include rubber stripping to prevent vehicle damage.
**In extreme weather conditions, silicone sealant is advised.
The roof rack DOES NOT ship assembled in order to reduce the cost of shipping.
Unless powder coating is selected, all racks come UNPAINTED and are bare aluminum. Aluminum will not rust in wet conditions, but we do recommend painting as the bare aluminum does get micro scratches and finger prints on the surface during the manufacturing process.
