    I don't have them and I would probably never use them. That said, after reading about how easy it is to install them, I kinda want them now...

    They are very easy to install no doubt.

    If you really need a rack, in all seriousness, I would recommend the OEM rack. I have had Yakima and Thule racks in the past and they are both awesome racks no doubt. They make quality equipment. The thing is, the OEM rack was made specifically for our trucks and you don't have to worry about messing up the paint with a aftermarket rack sitting on your roof. The last time I had my Yakima rack on my car I had it on there for almost 2 years. It worked flawlessly but when it came time to trade in the car there were 4 places where it had "worn" down the clear coat on the paint where the rack touched the car. It didn't wear through but it made kind of a "indention" where you could make out the outline of the pads on the rack. No big deal since I was trading in the car but over time they will wear on the paint.

    Just something to think about. Not saying the aftermarket racks are bad by any means. My Yakima rack is still sitting in my attic. I just like the look of the OEM myself.

    Winch, front hitch, step bars, bed extender, bed step, gull-wing toolbox, tailgate lock, security system, cb radio, etc.

    I like the appearance on my truck. I've never once used it (yet), but it, along with my other accessories (winch, large bed toolbox, cb antenna on that toolbox, etc), adds a lot to the off-road appearance of my TRD OR.

    That's silly. One could focus on the similarities between men and women (two arms, two legs, etc), but I really do hope you guys can distinguish between the two - better than you've done here between a head and a truck. :rofl:
