Picked this up earlier in the year (2011) and never ended up getting out into the wilderness as much as I'd hoped. It looks badass, and I get compliments every day from other truck owners. Going to try a camper shell this time and see if that's more my speed. My dog doesn't like being in the bed with the rack in place!
Bought the bars new from Armor Tech, coated them myself, and mounted a Yakima LoadWarrior directly to them. It's as solid as a tank. It also comes with a Yakima net that stays affixed while driving, and does wonders for keeping gear secured. It's never been in the rain (it's LA after all), and is in like-new condition. I'll re-coat the rails prior to your picking them up, and give you two cans of touch up paint should you ever need them.
I'd rather not ship this, but if you're interested we can explore our options. I'm firm at $400, and shipping could add upwards of another $100 (which kind of makes this not a great deal). I've got $550 in the whole setup, so save yourself some serious coin.
Local pickup in Los Angeles preferred. If you're in San Diego, I head that way at least once per month.
Give me a buzz if you'd like to discuss. 310.739.2496. Jason
