    Yea... People have been saying that for years. They stopped production for quite a while because they had a large stock pile of them.

    So I bought a used All Pro Pack Rack. Was a pita to get it together but with some help from some TW members, we got it together before I got it on the truck I plasti derp the entire thing but with it being cold didn't stick to well.

    So after finally getting it on the truck, there was issues with the bolts and the washers they use and yet another pita issue, but I finally got them to go in after taking some time. later in the week I will be sanding the entire rack and plasti derp it again on a warm day.

    Sanding the bed rack back to steel and replasti derping the rack after the truck gets a real good wash!

    Why would you sand down the rack and plasti derp when it's already painted?

    edit: nevermind. I missed the part where you already plasti derped it.

    IMO I would paint it. buy self etching primer, and spray it. It'll hold up. Plasti Derp will peel everytime you mount/remount anything or a branch hits it.

    Today after work started to sand the rack back to bare metal. It may take all weekend but with a few beer and a cigar I should be just fine! :cool:

    Did some plasti derping of the badges while its warm!! Had one issue with the front right side, kept having bubbles and didn't peel right for some reason. Rear bumper is next or the front grill..
