BajaRack Utility (flat) Rack





Just installed it yesterday, so it's too early for a review. Instillation seemed a bit dodgy but it's solid on all accounts. I had my 7 yr old son jump up and down on it and it passed that test. Wind noise is noticeable for sure but maybe I can fiddle with it (or just get accustomed to it).

A paddleboard will be the first true test...better review to follow.

On the rack, or on the mounting feet? They're a bit offset, but the brackets look to be the same angle so the distance is probably the same.

I could take up close shots of the rack mounting points if you're interested.

Things a beast. Bed was full of tools and such so we threw the theater flats on the rack. I had to take the interstate so I hit speeds of 65 mph. Everything stayed put and as solid as when I loaded it...probably should have put the small one on top...oh well.





For some reason I don't have a photo with my paddleboard on it, but it's a much easier load than this one was.

ETA: Here's a roof top pic.

I also own a Baja Rack for my Tacoma and am very satisfied with it. Although I own the basket version, I have had it for almost 2 years now and have had no issues with it what so ever. The powder coat has held up well over the 2 years.

Also, for anyone looking at getting a Baja Rack for their truck Southeast Overland (a vendor on here) sells them cheaper than MSRP.

Very good looking rack. Im thinking about getting this same one. By chance is that plate on the front that says "baja rack" seem removable?

Its stickers you can peel off...I bought this rack and was bent and powder coat chipping.. finally got it replaced by Baja rack only to find it stripped my holes in roof .so would say be careful with heavy loads..loved the rack but wasn't worth the trouble
