    I have a front runner rack on my DC, not sure if it’s the low-profile or not...got it used. Let me know if there is anything specific you’re looking for.F04594AD-72A7-419A-8200-D2E9B48BC30A.jpgE0B4E63A-1362-499D-A62A-088E2A7C3988.jpg
    Edit: I also have the quick release RTT mounts, they’re ok.

    From what I can tell it is the “low profile” one. The regular one is about $200 more but you can slide their camping table between the rack and roof.

    How do you like it?

    Hows the wind noise?

    thanks

    Wind noise is actually not bad, I was concerned. I do have the wind-dam on the front that’s actually angled from the rack backwards, so counter-intuitive. It’s a bomber rack, you can walk around up there. I have thrown a bunch of tools/ez-ups/work stands up there for biking trips and races. I have a 15 gallon water tank that goes up occasionally for fire suppression.0C89F80C-35C8-4BC5-B67A-A45A80F26F7F.jpgi should qualify that...bonfire suppression. 15 gal only goes so far...

    Would you mind measuring the height of your low profile rack from the top of your cab? I have the slimline rack on my camper shell and am trying to figure out if I need the regular or low profile cab rack to match the correct height.
