    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    Nor I'm I but you will have to do your own research no it's not unwarranted flack when there is countless threads about the quality of said parts. As well as TW deciding to dropping them as a vendor says something as they see all the back end stuff we don't see. I'm just reading what I'm seeing but you make your own judgement.

    Oof, that's rough. I wonder if it would help to weld on some gussets or something for those with the rack.

    Dang, certainly reached the limit there. I wonder what truck that was mounted on..? The bottom bracket tabs are facing out. They would face in a Tacoma to meet the bed rails
    My own judgment based on the one I currently own is that its a sturdy product with minor rust issues.. So far its survived the 3-4 years of whatever the previous guy put it through, plus ~500 miles of incredibly rough logging roads and several thousand of general highway use, just since Ive owned it

    That's the top of the tonneau brackets. The bottoms were still attached to the Tacoma, under the tonneau rails.

    I bought a Voodoo rack a while back. Used it for one camp trip and sold it ASAP. Definitely not as strong as advertised. I can go on and on but I won't lol.

    Too late! :rofl: I'll be looking into some type of reinforcement, but I'm not too worried about it. We may also end up with the RCI rack and a different tonneau cover that we can modify to work with it.

    I'm sure with reinforcement it will be super solid. Just sucks that it should have come out strong without us having to do any modifications. ;-)

    Damn thanks for the education on KB. I just posted a Not Mine KN rack in the Norcal CL thread along with some other things. I'm going to delete the link now.

    Meh, not a huge deal. People are still in the market for racks.
