    Big stack of powder-coated rack parts on this shipping floor this morning! Time to process these into kits and get them on the way to their new owners :bikewheelie:

    I know that your team is ready and able to handle it, which is one of the primary reasons I went through your company. Things are solid and a couple dings dont bother me as I'm just about to head out camping today and sure I will add more in. As a recommendation, I do think the end caps of the cardboard shipping box are the weak point and maybe if they were covered a bit more. I am sure there are people who will cry a bit that the first ding wasn't made my them but I'm aok with it.

    Thank you Truck Brigade!!

    I purchased a Victory roof rack for my cab and topper. Putting it together was pretty simple, mounting it was easy, and the materials seem pretty solid as well. The customer service has been great too.

    The only thing that has come up is the quality of the powder coat. There was about 2 dozen spots that didn’t have powder coat on them, 18 of those on the topper rack. I’ve reached out to my sales rep at Victory with pictures and am waiting to hear back from them. For what it’s worth I’m not too upset about this, but it was pretty unexpected based on every other part of my experience with Victory - everything else has been top notch. Even with this I’d buy again.

    @monkeyevil Is it possible to get a rack thats not powder coated? I want to do some cutting and drilling and it would need to be re-powder coated when Im done.

    Since all the parts come together from various piles into a kit at shipping, not easily no.

    Odd, this is a new one for me; sounds like maybe spots of contamination and the powder didn't adhere? Or it did just enough to pass visual and then came off later? Either way, sorry for the trouble, I'm positive customer service will handle it :thumbsup:

    For the access cab guys:

    started this install at noon and still not even close to being done. You will need more than 1 drill bit - the video makes it look easy but that metal on my roof is about 1/4” thick. I’m on drill bit #3 and probably will need a 4th one. I piloted with a 1/8” drill bit per the instructions. Doesn’t do much at all. The bit they provided gave me 1 hole and then went dull.

    The rivnut tool is a bit of a pain in the ass. I would recommend buying more than 1 of the 10 mm bolts that the tool uses. As soon as you cross-thread it you’re done and need to get a new one. Be careful with the tool because if you aren’t you’ll install the rivnut at an angle and it’s hard to bend the rack into place. The bolt you’re looking for is an M6-1.0 x 40 mm.

    hope this is helpful for anyone on the fence.

    I can’t say it’s my favorite install, but it sure looks and functions nice. 2 of the 8 nutserts are non functional but sealed well. You’d never know.

    Put my victory 4x4 on a couple weeks ago, so far really happy with it! I like how it follows the roof line much closer than the prinsu. Plus the mounts seem way stronger after seeing how the prinsu is mounted. I will say I wish I had spent the extra money and ordered the black hardware.
