    Looks like May 2019 is the current estimate according to the website.

    Anyone know how to have a Prinsu on and the GFC? Thinking ahead of time as I have a frontrunner right now, but I know that won't work.

    Edit: Specifically for 2nd gen

    If you're running low profile bedrails I don't believe any full length roof rack will work. It may not work at all on a second gen to be honest since our bed is shallower. One person running stock third gen rails had a prinsu and it barely cleared.

    I am also using the aluminum tape. Just seeing if that was the correct type of silicone to also be applying.

    If you have a longbed you can probably fit it with trimming. Cut the roof rails off at the middle mount point and buy the new side rails to make the rack short enough. I posted a reply back towards the beginning of the thread with measurements that should work.

    I doubt it's even worth trying...There'd be almost no space to fit anything up there anyways

    Also curious...How accurate are the build times? I ordered a bit ago and it stated May of 2019 is when it will be completed, but seems like they have a lot of orders to fulfill in the short 8 months span till then.

    There's also the rumor of the camper mounted cantilever rack so that might be something to hold out for.

    Not sure what everyone else is using, but how about some Gorllia 100% Silicone? Big selling points for me are it doesnt shrink and it can be used to fill gaps up to 1/2", according to the specs.

    That would probably work but I used the generic GE stuff. Filled all the gaps and it was a few bucks cheaper.

    It seems that they are to the point where they can do 10/wk for the parts and processes that are under their internal control? Maybe estimate 7.5/wk for a projection to account for supply roadbumps?

    I wonder what number GFC they are at.

    My order number is #1117...Not sure if that's what number GFC I have. Trying to do the math just to see how accurate it is, so I can play a camping trip when I go to pick it up.

    Just shooting from the hip here. I haven't done this yet and have only used Gorilla glue. You might want to use something that doesn't expand to fill? I'm just thinking this should one of the rails ever crack. You might have a hard time removing it? Plain silicone will peel up.

    Also, anything that expands could blow out and be visible / stick to the paint?

    Order number and build number are different. I'd get in touch with Elise and ask for your build number. She also gave me a rough start date when I contacted her.

    I believe it was said that the orders started at #1000? Also, it depends where your number comes from. I think there was an Order number and a Confirmation / Production number that you get back from GFC once they slot you in? This is what I am remembering from the initial pre-production orders where things were a bit squirrelly due to the planning and ramp up?

    I'm going to use clear 100% silicone sealant for the reasons you mentioned. An adhesive really isn't required, and may be more of a mess to deal with if it ever needs to be removed.

    I dont think it expands at all, it just cures properly if applied in a layer of up to 1/2". Also, spec say it dries as 100% silicone.

    Yeah I think I have yet to be slotted in - They said they send a second email, which I still have yet to receive. I'm just being impatient haha.
